It says Ottawa Senators on the Cup 11 times. 4 are considered NHL Cups while the older ones are considered "Challenge" trophies but I believe they are counted in the same manner that Montreal does in their 24 cups.

If we win a Stanley Cup it won't be the first for the city, it would be the 12th for the city but first since they came back in 92. We are the namesakes of the original team. First for the new franchise though.
Now, obviously this isn't a Winnipeg Jets situation, but the original Jets, which still exist, hold different records than the former Atlanta franchise. So while the city now has a team, this current "reincarnation" of the Sens has 0 Cups, no matter how you cut it. I mean, would it really make a difference if the old Senators were called the "Generals" instead? Wouldn't matter.
