Will Tampa Bay be cursed by the Hockey Gods for damaging Cup?


Recommended Posts

I know the Cup been damaged before, but there's not been as good photo evidence of the damage until the days of internet and cell phone evidence etc, anyways the Cup now has too go to Montreal to get fixed - that's a weird coincidence haha!

 

I think this at least deserves a small if not but curse ahahaha😆🍻medium?v=v2&px=400

Super amazed by the fact that Lamorello hadn't thought of that LITR circumvention first.

 

Must be slipping. It's not like the "prince of lies" to be out "grey area-ed".

Not many team around the NHL who can afford to go without their best player and still make the playoffs like they did it is a risky move and well it paid off for them.

 

I will be expecting many teams to be trying stuff like this a month before the trade deadline to replicate this very thing.

 

But first you have to have the serious injury first who would want that just to exploit that rule??

In the ultimate ironic twist, the Philadelphia Flyers will now be cursed with Jake Voracek for three more seasons because the Lighting damaged the cup.

 

Bettman, “what would the most severe punishment be for damaging Hockey’s Holy Grail?” “I like Tampa so let’s just punish the Flyers”

Not sure how the so-called "hockey gods" are to curse the Lightning for damaging the Cup, when, in fact, LOTS of crazy things have happened to the Stanley Cup (or its facsimiles), throughout the years, and some, I am pretty sure, the public DOESN'T know about!

Of course, if we see some teams like the Ottawa Senators, Vancouver Canucks, and Columbus Blue Jackets trade Stanley Cups over the course of next 3 or 4 years, then maybe there IS a curse, seeing as how those teams have never touched Lord Stanley and therefore, have yet the opportunity to 'harm' the Cup themselves  :ph34r: 

As for "cap circumvention", old hat now, the tears should have been dried by now, NO rules were broken, yadda, yadda.... those people need to find something else to whine over.
Any GM, ANY GM, given the same circumstances, would have done the same as the Lightning.....provided they actually had the depth to withstand LTIR to a star player or two and still get into the post season in comfortable fashion.
But of course, that kind of depth simply isn't an every day thing...hence the whining.

But, back to the Cup, yea, some google searching reveals some weird things the Stanley Cup has been subjected to.
I don't believe the Bolts will be the victim of any curse.

If anything, the Bolts will be victims of their own success as they will lose valuable players and will need to reconstruct and retool parts of the team in order to stay on top.

Yeah they're been lots damage before and lots the public don't know about.

 

Maybe the curse starts with as you said, them being the victims of their own success? Losing players definitely lowers their chances to win it again.
