Poor Quebec Nordiques fans - after more than 20 years of near-misses and basement finishes, their team headed southwest to Denver. Then, in its first year as the Avalanche, the franchise wins the Stanley Cup! Forsberg, Roy, Lemieux, and Sakic led Colorado past the Florida Rat Pack in a four-game sweep to win the 1996 championship.
This picture, as with all Stanley Cup celebration photos, was taken on the ice immediately after the championship was won. The great emotion shown by cup-winning hockey players makes this shot the one of the most memorable sports photographs every year. Fans of the Avalanche (and of the Nordiques) - this is a must-have for your collection!
Featuring: Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg, Valeri Kamensky, Scott Young, Claude Lemieux, Sandis Ozolinsh, Adam Deadmarsh, Chris Simon, Stephane Yelle, Mike Keane, Craig Wolanin, Mike Ricci, Alexei Gusarov, Curtis Leschyshyn, Sylvain Lefebvre, Uwe Krupp, Stephane Fiset, Patrick Roy, Mark Crawford, and more!
