Apparently, Montreal throws a better hockey parade than Anaheim.

I’ve never been to a bad parade in Anaheim, and certainly Scott Niedermayer didn’t intend to call out the Ducks’ Stanley Cup procession when interviewed by the Canadian Press today.

Still, especially with the Ducks out of the playoffs this year, this one has to sting a little:

Niedermayer, the Canadian men’s hockey captain whose Anaheim Ducks
failed to make the NHL playoffs, has been taking part in the festivities
over the past week.

“That’s the best parade I’ve ever been a part of,” said the multiple
Stanley Cup winner who took part in rallies following cup wins in
Anaheim and New Jersey.
