SEPTEMBER 2018 USAHOCKEYMAGAZINE.COM // 39 Ode To The Great Eight So, what can be said about the Great Eight? You play every game like it's your fate. Game after game you take the opponent You never rest even for a moment. You wear your battle-worn jersey with pride With leadership, you became the team's guide Alex, you are Russia's gift to The Show The question is how far can one man go? Although you are good in more than one spot What you are really known for is your shot. You are a role model during the day You are the reason that I like to play. Sadly, year after year, you go without the Cup You dream but you are stuck in a drought. Your desire to win the Stanley Cup, Is your fuel and drive to never give up. You have the skill, and your team does as well Only time will tell when your hearts will swell. Now you know why you are beloved so much Keep smashing the other teams into mush. Conor Booth Age 15 Spring City, Pa. (Editor's Note: Conor submitted this great poem before the Washington Capitals won this year's Stanley Cup.) 2. SUBMIT ONLINE & VOTE 1.
