Memories that will last a lifetime
Never in a million years did the citizens of Conception Bay South think the Stanley Cup would be on display in their town.

But on Saturday, hundreds lined up for the opportunity to have their picture taken with the most prestigious trophy in all of sports.

The excitement on the faces of adults and children alike is absolutely priceless. There are jerseys of several different teams -- Montreal, Boston, Calgary, Toronto and Pittsburgh, just to name a few -- being represented here.

But one young lad is standing out amongst the crowd.

Colin Hull, a 10-year-old from here in Conception Bay South, was wearing a Winnipeg Jets sweater -- the last one the club wore before it left for Phoenix in 1996. Colin wasn't alive then, but he was smiling ear to ear Saturday in his old-school jersey as his father took a picture of him with Lord Stanley.

"My dad bought it for me when he went to the MTS Centre in February," said Colin, who said he's still hoping his old man will score tickets for Monday's game between the Jets and Ottawa Senators that will take place at the Mile One Centre in nearby St. John's. "I'm a fan. I hope we get to go."
Quote of the Day

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.

— New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano
