Some More Stanley Cup Fun Facts

What Sets Stanley Apart?

True hockey fans will be the first to say that their sport has the best trophy. The truth is, we do. For one thing, the Stanley Cup goes to the players first, instead of the owners. You may even notice some coaches step back and let their players raise it first. Coming in at 34.5 pounds and standing at 35.25 inches it is truly something that you have to lift above your head.

The Stanley Cup you see is the same Stanley that Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux have lifted above their heads. Unlike other teams, a new trophy is not made every year. Instead, players get to raise the exact Cup they dreamt of raising as children. The Cup also gets the names of players, coaches, management and staff of the winning team permanently engraved on them. If you win the Cup, your name will go down in hockey history.

The players actually get the Cup for a day. Unlike other sports, the players themselves get to take the Cup to their hometown and enjoy a day with it. The NHL allows the winning team to spend 100 off-season days with the Cup, but who was the first to give each player a day with it?

That was the 1994-95 New Jersey Devils who made the tradition what we know today. They started giving it to each player and front office member for a day. Since the Devils won the Cup again in 2003, the Hall of Fame has been keeping a journal of Stanley’s travels.

Where’s Stanley?

Stanley has been all over the world — even to Afghanistan — all accompanied by its keeper, of course. Phil Pritchard has been the keeper of the Cup since 1991 and travels everywhere the Cup goes. His journeys with the Cup can be found on his Twitter. When Lord Stanley donated the Cup he made sure to mandate that two trustees would always ensure that the Cup remained safe. Currently, Brian O’Neill and Ian Morrison are those two trustees and have absolute power over all matters regarding the Stanley Cup. When handling the Cup, these men always wear white gloves.

Stanley Records

The youngest player to ever win the Cup was Larry Hillman. He was just 18 years, 2 months, and 9 days old when the Detroit Red Wings won the Cup in 1955.

Chris Chelios was the oldest player to win the Cup. He was 46 years, 6 months when he won the Cup with Detroit in 2008.

Henri Richard, brother of Maurice Richard, has his name on the Cup 11 times as a player.

Scotty Bowman has his name on the Cup nine times as a coach, split between the Penguins, Red Wings and Canadiens.

The Montreal Canadiens are the winningest team in Cup history with 24 Stanley Cup victories to their name. They won it five years in a row between 1956 and 1960. Only the 1976 to 1979 Canadiens and 1980 to 1984 New York Islanders have four consecutive wins.

The only eighth-seed team to ever win the Stanley Cup were the 2012 Los Angeles Kings.

Two babies have been baptized in the Cup. The first was Sylvain Lefebvre’s daughter, who was baptised after the Colorado Avalanche won in 1996. The second was Tomas Holmström’s niece. The Detroit forward allowed his cousin to baptize his seven-week-old daughter in the bowl when the Red Wings won in 2008.

The costliest celebration was the 2011 Bruins celebration at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods. They managed to rack up a $156,679.74 tab at the bar that was partially helped by a $100,000 bottle of champagne.

The Top 5 Most Valuable NHL Teams

As of 2024, the most valuable NHL team is the Toronto Maple Leafs, with an estimated value of $2.8 billion. This valuation has pushed the Maple Leafs back to the top spot for the first time since 2014, surpassing the New York Rangers, who are now valued at $2.65 billion??.

The top five most valuable NHL teams in 2024 are:

  1. Toronto Maple Leafs – $2.8 billion
  2. New York Rangers – $2.65 billion
  3. Montreal Canadiens – $2.3 billion
  4. Los Angeles Kings – $2 billion
  5. Boston Bruins – $1.9 billion?
  6. Chicago Blackhawks – $1.875 billion
  7. Edmonton Oilers – $1.850 billion
  8. Philadelphia Flyers – $1.650 billion
  9. Washington Capital – $1.600 billion
  10. New York Islanders  $1.550 billion

These teams’ values are influenced by factors such as market size, team performance, revenue from ticket sales and merchandise, and lucrative sponsorship deals. The Maple Leafs’ value, for instance, is bolstered by their ownership of the Scotiabank Arena and the broader portfolio of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, which also includes the Toronto Raptors (NBA) and Toronto FC (MLS)?.


Southampton won the Championship playoffs final against Leeds United on Sunday to become the third and final team to win promotion to the Premier League next season. Leicester City, Ipswich Town and Southampton are the three Championship sides that have been promoted for the 2024-25 Premier League season.

Leicester won the Championship title with 97 points to get back into the English top-flight after being relegated last season. Leicester City who unwantedly had to drop a division after an 18th-place PL finish in 2022-23, have bounced back immediately. At the start of the season, the Foxes’ sole objective was to clinch the second division title and gain automatic promotion to the PL. After 46 league games and 97 points on the league table, they did end up doing just that.

Ipswich Town too achieved promotion to the Premier League for the first time in 22 years after beating Huddersfield Town on the final day of the Championship regular season. Southampton finished the league stage fourth with 87 points but won the playoffs qualification. It beat West Bromwich Albion 3-1 on aggregate in the semifinal. The Saints then beat Leeds 1-0 with an early goal scored by Adam Armstrong to seal their spot in the PL.

Three teams qualify for the Premier League every season:

  • The Championship league stage winner – Leicester City
  • The Championship league stage runner-up – Ipswich Town
  • The winner of the Championship playoffs final – Southampton

Which Teams Have Been Relegated From The Premier League in 2023/24

The Premier League relegation battle is often one of the most engaging elements of an English league season — at least, if you’re not a fan of a team facing the drop. The bottom three sides in the Premier League table at the end of the season drop down into the EFL Championship, to be replaced by the top two from the second tier and the winners of the Championship playoff final. Sheffield United had long looked doomed in 2024 after struggling on their return to the top table, while Burnley were also mired in a relegation battle for the majority of the season despite their impressive Championship performances under Vincent Kompany.

Luton Town were fighting for survival until the final day, while Everton and Nottingham Forest had major scares amid points deductions for financial rule breaches.

Who have been relegated from the Premier League?

Luton Town — Week 38 asked a miracle for Luton Town to stay up. There was little intervention. Luton needed to win by a lot and have Nottingham Forest lose by a lot or win by a LOT and have Forest lose by any number. We’re talking double-digit goal differential reversal. As usual, the Hatters fought hard through injuries. But it wouldn’t have mattered had Luton beaten Fulham as Nottingham Forest took a two-goal lead at Burnley and got their positive result.

Burnley — Burnley joined Sheffield United in sealing their fate as one-and-done in the Premier League following a 2-1 loss at Tottenham Hotspur in Week 37. The loss was a microcosm of the Clarets season, as they fought well and even took a lead but could not keep a superior opponent out of their goal. Jacob Bruun Larsen scored again for Burnley as he would’ve been one of the heroes of a great escape, but Pedro Porro and Micky van de Ven scored on either side of half to give Spurs the win.

Sheffield United — The Blades were relegated following a blown lead and blowout loss to Newcastle United at St. James’ Park on April 27. The Blades had won just three Premier League matches since being promoted last season, and their 16 points with three matches left are 10 back of 17th-place Nottingham Forest. Two managers have struggled for the Blades in this campaign, as Paul Heckingbottom was scapegoated on December 5 in favor of former United boss Chris Wilder. Sheffield United had a 1W-2D-11L record under Heckingbottom, conceding 39 goals and scoring just 11. Wilder’s bunch have a 2W-5D-14L record, allowing 58 goals versus 23. The Blades were in the Premier League in the 1992-93 and 1993-94 seasons, then spending the 2006-07 campaign in the top flight. Wilder oversaw a pair of PL seasons from 2019-21.

The Top Five Richest Clubs In The English Premier League In 2024

The top five richest clubs in the English Premier League in 2024 are:

  1. Manchester City: Manchester City is the wealthiest club in the Premier League with a total revenue of approximately €820 million. Their financial success is driven by their on-field achievements, including winning their first UEFA Champions League title, which has boosted their commercial revenues, merchandise sales, and broadcasting rights.
  2. Manchester United: Manchester United follows closely with a total revenue of around €756.6 million. Despite a slight dip in on-pitch performance, they maintain a strong commercial presence and a vast global fanbase that contributes significantly to their income?.
  3. Liverpool: Liverpool ranks third with revenues of about €683.9 million. The club’s financial strength is bolstered by their historic brand, international fan support, and substantial revenues from broadcasting and commercial activities??.
  4. Chelsea: Chelsea is fourth with a revenue of €553.56 million. Their income is driven by commercial deals, matchday revenues, and merchandise sales. Recent performances in European competitions have also helped sustain their financial position??.
  5. Tottenham Hotspur: Tottenham rounds out the top five with revenues of €509.8 million. Despite not having the same level of on-field success as some of the other top clubs, Tottenham’s financial health is supported by their modern stadium, which generates significant matchday and event income, and their strong commercial strategies??.

These clubs’ financial successes are attributed to a combination of commercial revenues, global fan engagement, and performances in domestic and European competitions.

Will Quebec City Get Another Chance At An NHL Franchise Team?

As the NHL’s most financial struggling team the Arizona Coyotes moves to Salt Lake City Utah and become a new name and new team after the NHL Board of Governors voted unanimously Thursday to approve a $1.2 billion sale from Alex Meruelo to Utah Jazz owners Ryan and Ashley Smith, the city & fan base that is most deserving of a franchise is still waiting in Quebec City. We have seen cities like Las Vegas & Seattle get an expansion team in the NHL in recent years before Quebec. We have seen the Atlanta Thrashers be sold and moved to Winnipeg Jets where they are thriving.

Formed in 1972 as part of the now-defunct World Hockey Association, the Quebec Nordiques had been losing money for years. It had been originally owned by a San Francisco group as the San Francisco Sharks but when the investors failed to come up with the necessary financing it had been hastily sold to a group of Quebec City investors. After the WHA collapsed the team moved over to the NHL in 1979. What the Nordiques lacked was a fan-base. Quebec City was the smallest market in the NHL and the second-smallest major-league city in North America. Only Green Bay, Wisconsin; home to the NFL’s Green Bay Packers, was smaller. Though the Nordiques had the loyalty of local hockey fans, they weren’t enough to keep the team viable in a rapidly changing hockey environment.

The Nordiques inability to expand their following was largely the result of Quebec City’s status as a monolingual francophone city. With no privately-owned English-language radio stations and only one privately-owned English-language television station, there was little opportunity for the team to broaden its reach. he near-total lack of English-language media limited the Nordiques’ appeal to the rest of the continent and made Anglophone players wary of playing for them. As the team continued to lose money, its owners begged for a bailout from Quebec’s provincial government. Premier Jacques Parizeau turned the request down flat. No politician was prepared to risk subsidizing a sports organization that paid its players multimillion-dollar salaries.

Finally in May 1995, right after the Nordiques were eliminated from post-season play, Nordiques CEO Marcel Aubut announced that he had no other choice but to accept an offer from COMSAT Entertainment Group, owner of the NBA’s Denver Nuggets. COMSAT moved the team to Denver where it was renamed the Colorado Avalanche. Though the Nordiques franchise and Aubut himself never lost money on the team, Aubut feared losing money and sold the team before the possibility became a reality. The sale price was enough to put a $15 million payout in Aubut’s pocket. Things are different now and Quebecor, a large Canadian diversified media and telecommunications company serving QuĂ©bec based in Montreal, are looking to bring a team back to Quebec City

Quebec City also has a modern arena that needs a team to fill its seats, and we know full well that there’s a deeply-ingrained hockey culture there that would rush to support an NHL team. We also know that there’s an uphill climb for Quebec City when you strictly look at its population,  Quebec City’s city population of approximately 550,000 would be the smallest of any NHL market, while the metropolitan population of more than 800,000 would be the second smallest. Quebec is a smaller locale, but, like the Winnipeg Jets, they have a built-in, ready-to-go fan base that undoubtedly would have better attendance than many current NHL markets.

And yet Salt Lake City got a franchise!

FEDEX SCAM CALLS : Scammers Pretending To Be From FedEX Or Other Couriers

Hello I just received a SCAM call by some guy pretending to be a rep for FedEx International based out of Mumbai. The call was routed via a route IVR that said press 1 to speak in English and 2 to speak in Hindi I got connected to some guy who said that there was an issue with one of my package from FedEx. I was expecting a couple of packages from Amazon and usually they come via Amazon Logistics but from time to time I do get a package from some 3rd party seller who uses Delhivery or DHL. So I thought that this was one of them but international?

It has been ages since I placed an order from abroad. So I told him that I wasn’t expecting anything from an international destination when he said that it as a package that I had sent. Having not shipped anything to anyone, I told him that it wasn’t me as I haven’t sent anything via FedEx. He then said that it as through the FedEx office in Mumbai. I told him that was impossible as I had not been to Mumbai in over 40 years, 43 atleast! So he says the issue or the claim : a package containing some “illegal items” has been confiscated by Indian customs. On saying that I haven’t sent anything, he says then my Aadhar has been leaked and someone has been using my details to use it for such nefarious purposes.

As I was suspicious, I was checking Google for FedEx Scam an found the same details mentioned as in my call. My suspicions now confirmed I then spent 2 minutes spewing the finest swear words aka FOUL MOUTH TIRED aka FOUR LETTER WORDS at this despicable scum sucking excuse of a human, I then disconnected the call. Fuck him and his scam and people just be aware!

A Personal Update! 25th May, 2024

So after my hospitalization and 3 day rest at home – just resting, watching a few movies and some tv shows and sleeping a little more than usual. After that I started work from last Wednesday doing an early morning shift. So I would wake up at 4 am and after coffee, and a visit to the loo, I login for the day and train a batch of 16 new hire folks. Best thing about this shift is that I am done at 1:30 pm and have the rest of the day to myself.

So I did that for 3 days and then it was the weekend. More movies and coffee and tea followed by a nice dinner on Saturday night. Sunday was peaceful as well. Monday morning I worked from home and then from Tuesday I worked at the office. I am now working an afternoon to evening shift, 1:30 pm to 9:30 pm. So I go to the office, trying to reach by 1:15 pm and have lunch as soon as I reach there. Usually it is a sandwich or maybe some instant noodles with eggs.

I have a new training batch from this past Wednesday and have been busy but it finishes quickly as we are at the office for only 8 hours, with an hour break. Things are going smoothly. I had a doctor’s appointment today and after that I went to Starbucks for a coffee frape before lunch back at home.

Benefits Of Eating Cucumbers

Cucumber is a nutritious fruit with a high water content. Eating cucumber may help lower blood sugar, prevent constipation, and support weight loss. To maximize cucumber’s health benefits, eat the peel, too. Though commonly thought to be a vegetable, cucumber is a fruit.

1. Cucumbers are nutrient-rich

Cucumbers are low in calories but high in many important vitamins and minerals. One 10.62 ounce (301 gram) unpeeled, raw cucumber contain approximately:

  • Calories: 45
  • Total fat: 0.3 grams
  • Carbs: 11 grams
  • Protein: 2 grams
  • Fiber: 1.5 grams
  • Vitamin C: 8 grams
  • Vitamin K: 49 micrograms
  • Magnesium: 39 micrograms
  • Potassium: 442 milligrams
  • Manganese: 0.2 milligrams

Although the typical serving size is about one-third of a cucumber, eating a standard portion would provide about one-third of the nutrients above. Cucumbers also have a high water content. They’re made up of about 96% water. To maximize their nutrient content, cucumbers should be eaten unpeeled. Peeling them reduces the amount of fiber, as well as certain vitamins and minerals.

2. Cucumbers contain antioxidants

Antioxidants are molecules that block oxidation, a chemical reaction that forms highly reactive atoms with unpaired electrons known as free radicals. The accumulation of these harmful free radicals can lead to several types of chronic illness. Oxidative stress caused by free radicals has been associated with cancer and heart, lung, and autoimmune diseases. Fruits and vegetables, including cucumbers, are especially rich in beneficial antioxidants that may reduce the risk of these conditions.

3. Cucumbers promote hydration

Water is crucial to your body’s function, playing numerous important roles. It involves processes like temperature regulation and transporting waste products and nutrients. Proper hydration can affect everything from physical performance to metabolism. While you meet most of your fluid needs by drinking water or other liquids, you may get as much as 40% of your water intake from food. Fruits and vegetables, in particular, can be a good water source in your diet. Because cucumbers are about 96% water, they are especially effective at promoting hydration and can help you meet your daily fluid needs.

4. Cucumbers may aid in weight loss

Cucumbers could potentially help you lose weight in a few different ways. First of all, they are low in calories. Each one-cup (104-gram) serving contains 16 calories, while an entire 11-ounce (300-gram) cucumber contains 45 calories. This means you can eat plenty of cucumbers without packing on the extra calories that lead to weight gain. Cucumbers can add freshness and flavor to salads, sandwiches, and side dishes and may be used as a replacement for higher-calorie alternatives. Furthermore, the high water content of cucumbers could aid in weight loss as well.

5. Cucumbers may help lower blood sugar levels

Several animal and test-tube studies have found that cucumbers may help reduce blood sugar levels and prevent some complications of diabetes. A 2010 animal study induced diabetes in mice and supplemented them with cucumber peel extract. Cucumber peel reversed most of the diabetes-associated changes and caused a decrease in blood sugar. In addition, one 2016 test-tube study found that cucumbers may be effective at reducing oxidative stress and preventing diabetes-related complications. Further research is needed to determine how cucumbers may affect human blood sugar.

6. Cucumbers may support regular bowel movements

Dehydration is a major risk factor for constipation, as it can alter your water balance and make the passage of stool difficult. Cucumbers are high in water and promote hydration. Staying hydrated can improve stool consistency, prevent constipation, and help maintain regularity. Moreover, cucumbers contain fiber, which helps regulate bowel movements. In particular, pectin, the soluble fiber found in cucumbers, can help increase bowel movement frequency.

5 More Tips For New WordPress Users

1. Use a Custom Homepage

By default, WordPress shows your latest posts on the homepage of your website. You can change that and use any page as your site’s homepage. First, you need to create a new page in WordPress, and you can name this page Home. Next, you will need to create another page, and let’s call this page Blog, as you will use it to display your blog posts.

Now go to Settings » Reading page in your WordPress admin and under the ‘Front page displays’ option and switch to ‘A static page’.

After that, you can select the pages you just created as your home and blog pages.

2. Install Google Analytics in WordPress

Google Analytics is one of the must-have tools for WordPress site owners. It allows you to see where your users are coming from and what they are doing on your website. It will only start tracking your website users after you install it. That’s why it is important to have it set up when you launch your website. This way, you’ll have all the historical data to track and compare your website’s growth. The best way to install Google Analytics is by using the MonsterInsights plugin. It is the best Google Analytics plugin for WordPress and shows beautiful reports right inside your WordPress admin area.

Simply install and activate the MonsterInsights plugin. For more details, see our tutorial on how to install a WordPress plugin. Upon activation, the plugin will walk you through the setup. Simply follow the on-screen instructions to finish the setup. For detailed instructions, see our step-by-step guide on how to install Google Analytics in WordPress.

3. Password Protect WordPress Admin Directory

The WordPress admin directory is where you perform all administrative tasks on your website. It is already password-protected, as users are required to enter a username and password before they can access the admin area. However, by adding another layer of authentication, you can make it difficult for hackers to gain access to your WordPress site.

4. Show Images in Rows and Columns

By default, when you add multiple images to a WordPress post, they would appear right next to each other or on top of each other. This does not look very good because your users will have to scroll a lot to see all of them. This can be solved by displaying images in a grid layout. You can use the Gallery block to display images in a grid of rows and columns. You can also use the columns block to display images side by side. If you want to display an image next to the text, then you can try Text and Media block.

5. Allow Users to Subscribe to Comments

Normally, when users leave a comment on your website, they will have to manually visit the same article again to see if you or other users replied to comments. Wouldn’t it be better if users were able to get email notifications about new comments on your posts? Here is how to add this feature to your website.

Simply install and activate the Subscribe to Comments Reloaded plugin. Upon activation, you need to visit Settings » Subscribe to Comments to configure the plugin settings.
