The venerable trophy will be doing in June, July and August the same thing it's done every summer since the 1994 champion New York Rangers formally started the modern-day tradition of letting each player on the winning team have his own day with the cup.

This time, though, the 112-year old trophy will be spending more time with its own age group.

The NHL has decided to honour the oldest living Stanley Cup winners by letting them have the Cup for a day.


Frankly, I think that's the best possible thing to do with the Cup this summer. There are going to be some pretty excited grandkids in Canada this summer...

Agreed. Very good move by the NHL. It's something to think that in 1994 players started to get the cup for a day. Until then, you held it after the winning game, then that's it!



Cheers!

The Cup had been on some very wild rides long before 1994.

Have to agree, this is a pretty classy move. Especially since many of the old timers got screwed before the player's association came about.
