Stanley Cup Fact

Did you guys ever wonder what they do with the cup when the names fill up? It takes 13 years to fill one of the rings and when a new ring is needed they cut off the oldest ring and display it at the Hockey HOF. So a players name will someday be removed from the cup!

Yea they do it for the bottom half of the trophy(the widest part). The top part contains the original engravings done from back when the cup was introduced to the league.

You want another fun fact? The bowl on the top of the Stanley Cup...its not the original but in fact an exact replica! The original Bowl that Lord Stanley bought and donated is in the HHOF.

It will take another 7 years for it to fill up and they have a plan to remove a row each time it fills up. Overall I think I heard that the Kings will be taken off the cup in 65 years or so.

Yeah, but by the time the ring is taken off, nearly the time remaining for their respective lives will have expired, so essentially their names are on there for the rest of their lives. That and it will always be immortalized in record books and the Hall of Fame. It also always leaves the incentive of winning again. They all fade with time. Obviously Maple Leaf fans aren't content with the fact they have won 13 in their history because they haven't won in nearly a half-century and not since the expansion. Gotta keep winning them to stay relevant. Enjoy it for the moment, and then go do it again

When they take off a ring they flaten it out and have it in display in the room with the oringal cup

Now I'm annoyed!

New goal: Keep winning the Cup until we get a Duckless band to be engraved on.

Better goal: Keep winning the Cup until the Kings get an ENTIRE BAND all to themselves! C'mon, it's only 13 years in a row starting around 2018!!!

What are the odds that the Raiders will join the Kings and Lakers in representing LA and win the whole shebang this year? Yea, I know it's a big stretch but how great would that be...especially against a team from the east coast like the Giants. Now that would be sweet on a grand scale lol.
