From last to first. After occupying the cellar all season, Detroit Hot Rod continued it's meteoric late season rise by capping it off with a championship. Self-proclaimed "Coach of the Decade" Mark Perry led with relentless optimism, despite so many earlier defeats. The championship game was close for much of it, with Cliff Hutton playing an excellent game and sub Kris Smyth scoring 2 goals to lead DHR to the 5-1 win over Bottles N' Stuff. Congrats to the following players who'll be forever listed on the KHL Bucket of Champions and future Cup: Cliff Hutton G, Armando Valentin F, Ben Hendricks D, Bob Royston D, Dan Armstrong F, Darrel Graff F, Jeff Ozanich F, Jeff Shimizu F, Mark Perry D, Rick Chadwick F, Steve Lyons D.
