I always believed that the cup could be awarded to a team not in the NHL as it doesn't "belong" to the NHL. It's awarded to the best ice hockey team in North America, it just so happens that it's always been an NHL team for nearly a century now. I thought if this season was fully cancelled it should be awarded to the best Junior team as theyre the . That would invariably be the CHL Memorial Cup champ, imagine that. I guess the AHL would have a good argument for it too.
