Personally, I think the NHLPA should form an all star league compete for the Cup if the lockout goes on too long. The NHL clearly does not own the Stanley Cup and their use of trademarks could be challenged in court. The original trustees were pretty clear about who should compete for the trophy when it was transferred over to the league in the 1950's. It was not exclusively the NHL's trophy if a rival NHL caliber league were to pop up. If the NHLPA sets up NHL caliber teams and plays a reasonable schedule the league really could not stop them from competing for the cup.
