The black in the logo definitely makes it look weird, they definitely could have done something different than fill it in with cheap paint, but man is it beautiful. Falls under the category of 'who cares, won the cup.' Can't wait for some side shots.

I believe Jostens has the contract to do these rings, at least they have the last 4 years. They've been really cookie cutter since 2008 so it's no surprise that this ring is kind of...plain. You don't tend to see the different coloured stones anymore or anything too fancy. It's unfortunate but it's still a Stanley Cup ring.
This must be the one they're handing out for the promotion. If that's the case then they look pretty cool for a fan promotion. The quality on the past real ones is much better (at least according to pictures...)

Like I said, I doubt this is the real ring. This has to be the promotion/fan ring they're giving out later this season. But having said that I'm sure the real one will look similar and have the home plate logo on it (probably in some black gem stone), and why not? That's the logo and colors we won under. There's no changing that now.
i like it...as i said on the main board, i actually like the black "paint" (i actually think its a type of an epoxy but whatever) and the way it contours around the "LA" and the crown. If you click the link Emporerpenguin provided, they used the same black paint for the Miami heats rings.
