Also, I'm calling this the thread of the year. We don't need to vote. Thread of the year.
Two thoughts on this whole thing:
1. Does anyone else think they should put the band with the names on there before the cup goes to the players? Let the team do a thing with it till the awards, send it to the HHOF, let them do the band, then give it to the guys. How much cooler would it be to get it and see your name and teammates names on there?
2. Why doesn't the NHL allow the cup to stay with the winning team for a year after they win it. Let that org use it to celebrate the championship and for charity functions around the city. The original is still in Toronto but the replica could stick around for a while. Just seems like an obvious thing to do. I mean, how cool would it be to see that on display every time you went to Staples for instance?
Nah...I can relate to the Michelob lite....without the Coors Light of course.
