well..sounds like you guys should be adding some fine print to all your drive for 25 avatars
No, not at all; we just happen to be the only NHL franchise that won a Cup pre-NHL but it doesn't mean we asterix the 24 we have won; the NHL might have de facto possession of the trophy but that doesn't mean we erase the non-NHL winners from the record book, right?
Guys, I've seen this mistake happen all the time...it makes me mad too but honestly we have 24 Cups, Bob McKensie and all the other TRUE GOOD hockey analysts know that as well, so I'm not really feeling angry about it. Lets just focus on our DRIVE FOR 25 right now!
I may be wrong on this (although i dont think so on this occassion) but the Stanley Cup was competed for before the NHL existed and the Montreal Canadiens existed before the NHL was created. I think one of the cups is from the time before the NHL. If im wrong, someone please correct me as I have believed this true for some time.
