Another Cup For Western New York?

A trend will continue if the Penguins win the Stanley Cup this year, a real possibility now that Marian Hossa is on the roster. Pittsburgh has been terrific without Sid the Kid, so you can imagine how strong they'll be once Crosby and Hossa start playing with one another.

Two years ago, Clarence-raised Kevyn Adams won the Cup with Carolina. Last year, it was Williamsville native Todd Marchant and Anaheim. This year, it could be Brooks Orpik and the Pens. I guess that would leave West Seneca native Aaron Miller (Canucks) on deck with Lee Stempniak (Blues) and South Buffalo's Patrick Kane (Blackhawks) waiting for their turns.

At this rate, South Buffalo's Mike Ratchuk (Philly) and Kevin Quick (Tampa Bay) will bring the Cup home before Angola's Patrick Kaleta and South Buffalo's Tim Kennedy win one here.
