What if the Stanley Cup got lost/stolen/destroyed?
 
Unlikely scenario with the high security caravan that travels with it (plus I'm sure that thing is chipped on the inside so they always know its exact location.

But suppose for some reason, something happens to it...and now there is no stanley cup.

What does the NHL do? Does it create another blank cup that looks exactly like the old one and start filling it in? Does it create another different trophy? Or take one of the old cups out of retirement and use that again?

the nhl would cease to exist immediately

The Scarecrow 06-25-2012 08:17 PM

I would blame Bettman.

They are going to have to replace it sooner rather than later. We only have room for so many rings on that cup. They may have to make indivdualized cups and hand them out like they did for World series trophies. Send each franchise the amount of cups they would have won for some consistency

Uh...the rings are being replaced with new ones and the old go to the Hall of Fame

iPunch 06-25-2012 08:21 PM

Probably use the exact replica they have on display at the Hall of fame.

You know they take off rings of older teams to add in newer ones, right? They'll just keep doing that.

Never knew they replaced old rings, thought they kept adding on. I stand corrected

once the current bottom ring is full, a top ring is removed and put in the hall. And a new blank ring is added

there will come a time when gretzky, howe, and orr are no longer on the stanley cup

Wait, does the replica at the HoF have the same mistakes as the original?

why? i doubt it carries much cash... travels a lot, you know.

:naughty:

Ceux de Montreal 06-25-2012 08:40 PM

Then the NHL would investigate Chris Pronger house.

Screw You Rick Nash 06-25-2012 08:45 PM

The NHL would desperately try to keep it as secret as possible, just like how they replaced the original Stanley Cup (in 1970, I believe).

KnightofBoston 06-25-2012 08:46 PM

We'd be fine

The real Stanley cup is gaurded somewhere very secret anyways

"Very secret" :laugh: It's called the Hockey Hall of Fame. Costs 20 bucks to get in.

I like to think its kept somewhere really really cool, like a temple in one of the uncharted games

Ozz 06-25-2012 09:29 PM

What kind of hockey fan doesn't know they replace the rings on the Cup?

WarriorofTime 06-25-2012 09:34 PM

They'd get a new one and nobody would know the difference.

startainfection 06-25-2012 09:40 PM

they would make a new one, an exact copy

19Yzerman19 06-25-2012 09:40 PM

Hmmm ... their are 3 Stanley Cups the original that never leaves (too fragile to be handled any longer) the HOF and 2 replicas. So if the SC was stolen/lost it wouldn't actually be the real one, they would probably just make another replicaif the SC couldn't be recovered.

KnightofBoston 06-25-2012 09:48 PM

The Stanley cup is a symbol really. It matters not. If you win 16 games in the spring, you become a champion forever
