Ok I searched for this but it wasn't on page 1 so...

I thought I read somewhere that the Cup could get awarded to another non NHL team in the event of a labour stoppage as per the last cba or something to that effect.

Can anybody fill me in on this?

If the Cup could at least go to the most deserving team somehow that would be pretty sweet. Then the nhl players and the owners can kiss it.

How about put it in the Vancouver Giants locker room? Because they need some inspiration right now...

The hell?
First of all, how do you determine the most deserving team? If anything it would be LA for being the last winner, even then its dumb.

Second, what is the damn cup if you havent earned it? Thats just a joke! No scars, no battles, no memories, I doubt any player would want to touch the cup, as they dont unless they win it themselves.

If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.

LOL

Adrienne Clarkson, then Governor General of Canada, alternately proposed that the Cup be presented to the top women's hockey team in lieu of the NHL season. This idea was so unpopular that the Clarkson Cup was created instead.

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.[41] Furthermore, when another NHL lockout commenced in 2012 the Trustees stated that the 2006 agreement did not oblige them to award the Cup in the event of a lost season, and that they were likely to reject any non-NHL challenges for the Cup in the event the 2012-13 season were cancelled. ~wikipaedia

So there is a chance and maybe not such a dumb idea after all.

Wow, that part of the cup looks pretty damned tarnished.

The wiki article sais an agreement was reached in 2006, after the abomination of 2004/05

Why did they waste a space on the cup with "season not played"?
