The NHL doesn't Own the Cup! 

This morning's paper reports, and we should have known, that Lord Stanley's Cup is not the property of the NHL, and may be awarded by its trustees to whichever North American team most deserves it.

The tradition has been for 77 years to award it to the NHL.

Yours truly was hoping for a mythic holding of the Cup by the Boston Bruins for the 2004-05 season, thus completing a 3-season sweep for the Boston/New England fandom, adding to the Red Sox !!, the Patriots (almost ho-hum) championships.

With this new information, I'm now willing to cede the cup to the AHL champions, the remaining high-level North American hockey activity.
