Someone help me out here, but isn't the trophy inscribed with "Dominion Challenge Cup" for the Amateur Hockey Champions of Canada, and was colloquially known as "Lord Stanley's Cup" originally?

I imagine the NHL has the trademark rights to "Stanley Cup" though. Makes the whole issue fuzzier.

Nationalist sentiments notwithstanding, I doubt there's a groundswell of public support for wresting control of the fabled punchbowl from NHL hands.
