Ok, I ask because though Wikipedia isn't the definitive source it lists errors on the Cup here:
Errors in engraving
There have been numerous errors on the engraving on the Cup, some of which also exist on the duplicate Cup found in the Hockey Hall of Fame:
In 1929, Boston Bruins player-coach Cy Denneny's name was listed on the Cup twice (once as a coach "Cy Dennenny Coach"), with one being spelled correctly and the other as a player "C Denneny".
In 1942 Walter "Turk" Broda was engraved on the Stanley Cup twice. Once as "Turk Broda", and other time a "Walter" Broda
Dickie Moore's named is spelled five different ways, and Jacques Plante's name four ways.
Several teams were misspelled, the Toronto Maple Leafs was spelled "Toronto Maple Leaes" (1963), the Montreal Canadiens was spelled "Montreal Canadiene" (1965), the Boston Bruins was spelled "Bqstqn Bruins" (1972), and the New York Islanders was spelt "New York Ilanders" (1981)
In 1984, Edmonton Oilers owner Peter Pocklington included his father, Basil. However, as Basil had no official connection to the team, his name was X'ed out.
In 1996, Colorado Avalanche's Adam Deadmarsh's last name was spelled "Deadmarch". It was later corrected, the first time a correction had been made.
