Vancouver Giants Win Memorial Cup Thanks To Two Bruins

The Vancouver Giants won the Memorial Cup Yesterday with a 3-1 victory over The Medicine Hat Tigers. The Giants two best players in this tournament were Milan Lucic and Wacey Rabbit(t) (seen it spelled both ways so I borrowed this interpretation from Heather) who are both property of our beloved Bruins. Lucic was named tounament MVP just narrowly edging out his team mate with the cool name! This showing by these two future Bruins gives us fans hope for the coming years.
Speaking of cool Bruins' names check out The Spoked B where Doobie is counting down the 50 best Bruins' names of all time.

I can't wait to see Lucic in Boston. It'll be a few years so I'll make the trip down Rt 195 to see him in Providence. This kid has a huge heart, pro-quality work ethic, and is on his way to becoming a physical monster. He's not going to put up a lot of goals in Boston, but like a lot of folks have been saying, he represents all that we USED to see night in and night out by players in black and gold.

It's a shame Wacey didn't make it to the Bruins this year, otherwise he'd be one of the top three names.

Rabbit is a looooooooong shot to make the NHL. He's small, and he's not as fast as he needs to be.

Lucic is a monster, and has improved his game in every way this season. He skates much better with the puck, makes solid passes, and shows a lot of confidence in the offensive zone. He also killed some penalties on the 2nd shift.

Giants also told Lucic that he will wear the captain's C next season.

BTW, I only know of two Rabbitt's (with two T's). The first was Trevor Rabin's (from Yes) old South African group. The second was Eddie Rabbitt. And I probably should have listed Eddie Rabbitt first since you'd have to be a serious Yes fan to even know of the existence of Rabbitt.
