This is WrapAroundCurl's entry, the only known evidence of the real-life Kris Letang Stanley Cup celebration. The vibrant use of colors in the rainbow, matched by the explosive pizzazz of the unicorn, certainly doesn't detract from the Stanley Cup and token "58" bling strapped around the unicorn's neck. Wrap also wanted me to specify that they are not Starbursts over the uni's eye, but instead lens flares. Well done Wrap.
The Cheeseisblue is up next, depicting an ever classy Max Talbot in a white tuxedo following his offseason shoulder surgery. Note the player to the right, Marian Hossa, wearing his multi-team sweater with various logos etched and crossed out to signify his many stops over the past four years. Props for including buttons on Max's jacket. Nice work.
Sams_Dog takes the Stanley Cup celebration to a bar where 15 members of the team get their drink on. Unfortunately the picture couldn't be enlarged past this without sacrificing clarity (although try clicking on it and zooming). So to clear up a few points of this picture - Marian Hossa slips in during the celebration asking if anyone needs a winger while Letang and Guerin ignore him and play some hockey. Yes, that's Scuderi passed out on the bar while Max man's the remote control behind the bar to try and replay his goals over and over again (note the screen shot of the game on the TV). Way to go Sams_Dog.
Lori chose to put together a bit of a collage. Here's the accompanying description:
Iomor27 takes a jab at former Pen Marian Hossa as Sid shows off the Cup. Notice Hossa's sniffles in the third box while Crosby continues to get some sort of sick pleasure out of tempting him to touch it. I can't verify it, but this is likely a true-to-life rendition of the postgame ceremonies. Nicely done Iomor.
