Time to put heat on the Stanley Cup Trust
First of all, it isn't called the Stanley Cup, it's the Dominion Challenge Cup.
Second, the Cup isn't owned by the NHL. They have a trademark, which is the actual Cup glued on to this wedding cake base. Whatever these guys hold over their heads after winning, only the wedding cake is the property of the NHL.
Third, it's not clear why American teams are involved in this at all. If they are, then other countries could just as easily participate: Russia, Sweden, Finland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia...
Fourth, if the NHL are going to be incompetent and destroy themselves, there is absolutely no need to include the Dominion Challenge Cup in this disgrace. It's above all this. If the Trustees can't figure this out, they should be sued and replaced by more worthy Trustees.
