I am suprised at the number of people who have said Lord Stanley- certainly an influential figure, but iconic? If the average hockey fan saw a picture of Gretzky or Orr or Richard, they would know who it is. If they saw a picture of Lord Stanley of Preston? I'd be willing to bet the majority wouldn't have a clue. Its the Cup that makes the name "Stanley" iconic to hockey, not the man.
