Stanley Cup Champs

Ron Hainsy goes 16 years and 907 regular season games before ever making it to the playoffs until this year. He’s got his first cup.

Phil Kessel was the joke of the town that he never won a cup. He’s got 2 in 2 years.

Patrick Hornqvist was drafted last in 2005 by the Preds and was traded to the Pens in 2014. He’s got 2 in 2 years.

This is a team that takes what others throw away and makes them Stanley Cup Champs.

  • Interviewer: Jonathan, when you and—oh, sorry!
  • Patrick Kane: Do I look like him?...I don't think so. (laughs)
  • Interviewer: Patrick, when you and Jonathan signed those contract extensions last year, your agent told us that you guys left, you know, quite a bit of money on the table that you could have gotten individually. I think that, you know, you wouldn't have signed those deals if there wasn't a chance to keep winning here.
  • Patrick Kane: Oh, absolutely. And, you know, I think just, you know, the guy that you sign with. You know, just being on his team. You know that Tazer's going to do pretty much everything he can to help the team win, and, uh, it seems like he's had that winning goal too, wherever he's been, whether it's been the Olympics, World Juniors, you know, World Championships, uh...He's won everything, so, I'm happy to be his teammate, happy to be, um, you know, on his team...
