Bettman cup presentation

36 posts in this topic

First post. Go easy. It's just my opinion.

Players should introduce a clause. 'No Bettman' -handing-The-Stanley-cup-to-the-winning-team anymore, into their union bargaining agreement. The league should appoint/choose a hall of famer Esposito, Orr, Hull, Gilmour, Robinson, Linden, to hand over the trophy to the champs. That would show powerful and honorable respect to the team, and fans. Linden, Smyl, Mclean etc. Maybe even have our Canadian dad Don Cherry pass it to the champs if Bruins or leafs win. Same goes withe Conference division trophy. Would love to see Tiger Williams hoist the cup to Sedin.

I kind of like the idea, but not for Linden or Smyl or Cherry. It should only be from someone who has won the Cup as a player.

I think a player would have more significance though.

Crazy idea, captain of last team to win the cup. Shows the passing from one champion to another.

What if it's handed over by the captain of the previous years winners?!? Same with the Conn Smythe!

Special circumstances if the same team wins two years in a row.

The more I think about this idea, the more I like it.

The Stanley Cup is not the league's trophy, it's the players' trophy.

I actually like the idea of the commissioner handing off the cup... but only if Bettman wasn't the commissioner :P

I like this idea.

How about the trustee of the cup handing it over. Or some guy dressed like Lord Stanley? Or the oldest captain of a cup winning team? Or Harper/Obama? Or Phil Prichard? Or Gretzky?

I would go with the trustee.

How about we have a season so a team can actually win the thing?

Yes let's have someone in a Lord Stanley costume presenting the highest award in the sport, surely that will return respectability to this league.

I like most of these ideas. Anyone but Bettman I say.

I do not want the last couple cup winning captains to pass it to Hank. Would rather watch Bettman drink champagne from it than have to look at Browns or Charas greasy hands touching that thing in our building. Already had to once, made me wanna puke.
