Leave a Comment
Here's a new segment to my blog for the fall and winter called "7 Questions."

Our first "7 Questions" is with Stanley Cup winning goalie Bill Ranford

CM: What is your fondest memory playing hockey?
BR: Winning the Stanley Cup and World Championships

CM: Who was your favorite player growing up?
BR: Ken Dryden

CM: How did you get into coaching (Ranford is currently the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Kings)?
BR: I started in the WHL, and was then offered the Kings job.

CM: What does it mean to you mentor a Conn Smythe winner (Jonathan Quick)?
BR: I am fortunate to have a good relationship with all my goalies. Having one of them win the Conn Smythe Trophy is special.

CM: What does it mean to you win "the cup" as a coach?
BR: It was tough to watch instead of playing, but it was fun to celebrate with the players and the city of Los Angeles. 

CM: What was it like doing the goalie stand-ins for the scenes in the movie "Miracle?"
BR: It was long hours but great for my daughters to see their dad in a Disney movie.

CM: What were the thoughts that went through your mind just before you won the Stanley Cup in 1990?
BR: Excitement and then relief that the long journey was over.
