As far as I understand, the Stanley Cup is an NHL asset - it is a league award... not an NHLPA award...

But even if the Stanley Cup is owned by the NHLPA, I'm quite sure they'd sell the cup to the new owner's league for their definition of the right amount of $...

BTW: I think this 'new league' alternative is just a threat - a negotiation tactic... I don't think things will get that far...

But it's interesting thinking about
