Kings' Gaborik brings Cup back to Trencin

In what is starting to seem like an annual occurrence, the Stanley Cup touched down to spend the day in Trencin, Slovakia on Friday.

Kings more comfortable planning travels for Cup

The Los Angeles Kings have mapped out a Summer with Stanley for the second time in two years. This time, it got off to an interesting start.

According to a detailed account on the Kings website, assistant general manager Rob Blake, a member of the planning team, took a phone call that could have been part of the extensive scheduling.

Instead, it was to tell him he had been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

"A smile on his face, Blake takes the call and excuses himself for several minutes, though he ultimately returns to help with the planning," the story by Jon Rosen said.

Miller looking forward to new start with Canucks

New Vancouver Canucks goalie Ryan Miller joined NHL Live to discuss the next chapter of his career.

Miller agreed to a three-year contract worth a reported $6 million per season on July 1.

"It felt good to be wanted," Miller said. "We sat down and had a chance to talk to them about what they saw moving forward as an organization. Obviously I liked what I heard and I like what I see in the group that they've had there, and a few of the young guys coming up, so it just all kind of fell into place where I think it's the right place to be."

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it.

We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
