REGINA - Ryan Getzlaf remembers what it felt like inside, winning the Stanley Cup, holding it up proudly, all the while knowing something was missing.

His big brother Chris, his best friend, wasn't there with him.

"Now you're trying to bring a tear to my eye," said Chris Getzlaf, the slot receiver of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, being told what his brother had said earlier in the day in a telephone conversation.

"He's always been with me," said Ryan, the star centre with the Anaheim Ducks.
