Boy, you really like to pick and choose your words eh? You must have missed the part beforehand where it says "the agreement shall remain in force so long as the league continues to be the world's leading professional hockey league as determined by it's playing calibre..."

If the trustees so chose, or if someone else could get standing to sue on the agreement, I'd think the fact that the NHL's playing calibre is below that of a Novice A team this season would be pretty credible evidence that it's no longer the top professional league in the world.

The Stanley Cup was not awarded in 1919 as per a Trustees decision.

Today's trustees can choose not to accept challenges. And likely they won't.

Maybe they should take a lesson from King Solomon and divide the cup in half?

If they are going to sue for the cup, they should at least get the bowl. If the Stanley Cup was to be removed from the NHL, then only take what you brought into the league. The base of the cup was added on after the NHL claimed exclusive rights to awarding Lord Stanley's mug and should stay with the NHL. A broken trophy for a broken league.

Give the trustee's the bowl and they can play with that if they want to.

:lol

Of course, the real bowl was replaced long ago...if the NHL paid for the replacement, wouldn't it be their property?

Good point. The NHL can keep the replica, which they paid for, while returing the TRUE original stanley cup.

Then they're not trustees...they're puppets!

They still might have enough to ice 2 teams. Some pretty good old timers on the top two lines. After that though you got guys like Bettman floundering around on the third or fourth.
