When I found out that Phil Kessel wasn’t going to have any sort of public Cup parade in Toronto, I laughed to myself. What a move by Kessel, to bring the Stanley Cup to the city that he was supposed to win it in, and not let the fans get a glimpse. For a moment, I thought it was the ultimate heel move, sticking it to the fanbase who helped drive him out-of-town. But then, some pictures surfaced, showing that Phil did share the Cup with the fans after all. Though not just any fans. He brought the trophy to the Sick Kids Hospital. My heart warmed seeing the smiles on the children’s faces. It was one of the most memorable Cup moments so far.
