1998 – Detroit Red Wings

Detroit Red Wings 1998 Stanley Cup Ring

The year 1998 gave us the 105th Stanley Cup championship. It was the Capitals’ first time in the finals since the franchise’s NHL debut in 1974 but the lost to the Red Wings who won the series for the second year in a row. It was the Wings’ ninth Stanley Cup, and as of 2010, this is the last season in which a defending Stanley Cup champion has successfully defended and retained the Cup.

This championship is also memorable as the team dedicated it to player Vladimir Konstantinov and team masseur Sergei Mnatsakanov how were seriously injured during the previous offseason.

On another note, the 1998 edition ring doesn’t have lots of photos in circulation.  Here’s the only one I have found of decent quality.
