1987 – Edmonton Oilers – Mark Messier


Mark Messier won the Stanley Cup championship six times over a ten-year span (1984-1994) and has a couple great stories to go along with the wins. The night after winning the Cup in 1987, Messier brought it to his favorite Edmonton strip club, the Forum Inn, and set it on stage with a dancer. No word on whether or not the Cup was a good tipper.

The following year, Messier dented the Cup and brought it to an automotive repair shop to get fixed. I wonder if the Cup is like a car to Messier. At first it's really exciting, but then over the years it becomes a hassle that is in constant need of repair.
