Before you go talking about how "unethical" it was for Steigerwald (and Errey, for that matter) to get a Cup ring, you might want to realize that those rings were ordered specifically by Lemieux, and paid for out of his and Burkle's pockets - not by the League, like the players' rings are. Lemieux and Burkle gave out several additional (albeit, as I recall, somewhat smaller) rings to various people they wanted to honor. It was a classy gesture on the part of Lemieux and Burkle, not anything "unethical" as you are claiming.
