It's of course impossible to argue that putting the Cup away for a year in that sense is the best option if indeed a team did put in a challenge for the cup.

NHLs agreement with the trust is also doubtful, I would guess. It just ties the hands of the trustees to much, and I doubt such agreement is valid to be honest if tested under certain circumstances...
Apparently the trustees could allow another league to play for it if they want to, and the league would be their choice. So technically, they don't have to allow another league to play for it.
