i don't even mind if they use replacement players.

Or

Throw 30 teams into a bucket and randomly pick 2 to compete for the Lord Stanley

It's hard to understand what you're trying to say.

But just FYI, only NHL teams can win the cup.

Technically, in the case of a lockout, the cup can now be awarded to the top amateur team. In which league that team would be found I couldn't tell you, but that's apparently what happens. Supposedly the NHL lost exclusive rights to award the Stanley cup with the last lockout.

So, the champions of the ahl, chl and the echl compete for the Stanley Cup?

To be honest, that would be kinda cool. Change things up a bit.

I don't understand how your having a hard time understanding what I'm trying to say? I'm simply asking which two teams are eligible to compete for the Stanley cup? SimPle enough..The NHL lost its rights in 04/05, so the top two Canadian teams are allowed to compete, so who, and when!?

Our national game is now being held hostage again by two powerhouse American lawyers. One with a background in Baseball and another with a background in Basketball. Neither one of these gentlemen gets what hockey means to Canadians.

They don't get what the Cup means to our history, our culture, how it gets us through a long cold dark winter, the light it brings us and how it it unites us as Canadians from coast to coast. Despite language differences, vast geographical distances and our overt multi-cultural identity.

It is one item on a very, very short list of things that unite all Canadians.

Is it time now with the third lock-out looming; 1994-95, 2004-05 and now 2012-13 to take back control of our national game? Is it time to stop being polite and drop the gloves nationally on this issue?

Is it time as a Canadian to say enough and that we have a right to professional hockey, a right to see the Stanley Cup lifted, a right to our national game, a right as culturally important to us coast to coast as other nation's cultural rights.

It may strike a non-Canadian as absurd to demand a right to see our game played each year but a right to carry a firearm without condition is also one that seems odd to Canadians.

Doesn't the NHL own the Stanley Cup? I knew that in 1926 it became that only NHL teams could win the cup. Has that been changed?

On February 7, 2006, a settlement was reached in which the trophy could be awarded to non-NHL teams should the league not operate for a season. The dispute lasted so long that, by the time it was settled, the NHL had resumed operating for the 2005–06 season, and the Stanley Cup went unclaimed for the 2004–05 season.[39]


A 2006 Ontario Superior Court case found that the trustees had gone against Lord Stanley's conditions in the 1947 agreement.[22] The NHL has agreed to allow other teams to play for the Cup should the league not be operating, as was the case in the 2004–05 NHL lockout.[21]
