And while he continued to carry a torch for the Canadiens, he began to look at the big picture. He was involved in many Hockey Picks, drafts etc. I remember him going over the stats to get the best bang for his buck, sort to speak. In August 08, he sat down and looked at the stats. He knew it was going to be his last time to do the drafts, so he wanted to make it right. He made a prediction based on those facts. And I am happy, so happy, actually I started to tear up when I saw that his pick, the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup tonight. He would have been so happy that his favorite team in the last 5 years made it. He loved the depth and age of the team. He thought the character of the Pens was phenomanal. So dad, two things happened this year in hockey that would have made you smile, and through my tears right now, I'm smiling with you. Mike Keenan was fired as Head Coach for the Calgary Flames (that's a whole different story :)) and the Pittsburgh Penguins won the cup.
Go dad go.
