On Philippe Boucher's day with the Cup, Stephane Robidas commits mortal sin

The Hockey Hall of Fame website has bi-weekly summer updates to document the Penguins with the Cup.  Here's the main link to the Penguins portion of the site, where you can catch up by reading about the celebration and parade (which never gets old) as well as Tyler Kennedy and now Philippe Boucher's day with Lord Stanley.  It's a great look at what the players are doing with their time with the Cup and something to do in this mind numbling boring hockey-less portion of the hot summer.

Now we come to Stephane Robidas.  Oh what have you done...

Hockey players are extraordinarily superstitious, and the long-held belief that players not touch the Stanley Cup until they’ve actually won it is widely kept as virtual law.......

Stephane Robidas inadvertently touched the Cup and thought, to hell with it and fully grasped it. "Ah, this feels really good. I could learn to like this when Dallas wins the Cup this year," he said to derisive taunts from the Penguins’ fans in attendance.



So in case you were wondering who WON'T be winning the Cup next season...
