Stanley Cup Trivia #1 thru #5
As the New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings get ready to battle for the Stanley Cup, enjoy these interesting facts and crazy stories about the trophy—which is older than the National Hockey League.

1. WHO IS STANLEY, AND WHAT’S HIS CUP?


Wikimedia Commons

The Stanley Cup is named after Lord Stanley of Preston, the 1892 Governor General of Canada. He purchased the decorative cup in London for 10 guineas (around $50 at the time). Stanley donated the Cup to award Canada’s top amateur hockey club after he and his family became infatuated with the sport at Montreal’s 1889 Winter Carnival; it was first awarded to the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association (or MAAA) in 1893.

2. THERE ARE ACTUALLY THREE STANLEY CUPS.


Wikimedia Commons

Stanley’s original Cup from 1892, known as the “Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup" (above), was awarded until 1970, and is now on display in the Vault Room at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.

In 1963, NHL president Clarence Campbell believed that the original Cup had become too brittle to give to championship teams, so the “Presentation Cup” was created and is the well-known trophy awarded today. (Skeptics can authenticate the Presentation Cup by noting the Hockey Hall of Fame seal on the bottom.)

The final Cup is a replica of the Presentation Cup, which was created in 1993 by Montreal silversmith Louise St. Jacques and is used as a stand-in at the Hall of Fame when the Presentation Cup isn’t available.

3. BUT IT’S ONE OF A KIND.

Unlike other major league sports trophies, a new Cup isn’t made every year. Instead, after each championship, the names of the players, coaches, management, and staff of the winning team are added to the Cup. The first team to have its roster engraved was the 1906-07 Montreal Wanderers, whose names were etched within the inner bowl of the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup. The only other team names engraved on the inner bowl are the 1914-15 Vancouver Millionaires.

4. AND IT’S ALWAYS CHANGING.


Wikimedia Commons

More and more teams wanted to be immortalized, so the decision was made to put a separate single ring below the original Cup that each new winning roster would be etched on. Between 1927 and 1947, a new, more streamlined and vertical incarnation of the Cup was used. Thanks to its cylindrical shape, it was nicknamed the “Stovepipe Cup” (above)—but by 1948, the trophy had become too tall to hold or put on display, so the shape was changed to the tiered version used today.

5. ITS RINGS ARE DETACHABLE.

Since 1958, five bands of championship names are engraved around the base of the Cup. When the rings become full, the oldest band is removed and preserved in Lord Stanley’s Vault at the Great Esso Hall in the Hockey Hall of Fame. A blank replacement band is then put in its place to be filled with the names of the next champions. No championship team names from the 1928-29 to the 1953-54 season are currently on the Cup.

Stanley Cup Trivia #6 thru #8
6. THE NHL HAS OFFICIAL ENGRAVERS PUT EACH NAME ON THE CUP.

In its 96-year history, there have only been four official engravers sanctioned by the NHL. The first was the 1948 Stanley Cup designer Carl Poul Peterson, a Danish engraver who moved to Montreal in 1929 and worked with his sons Arno, Ole, and John Paule in his engraving shop until his death in 1977. The current engraver is Louise St. Jacques (creator of the replica of the Presentation Cup), who took over from the second and third official engravers, Doug Boffey and his father Eric, at their shop Boffey Silversmith’s in Montreal in 1989.

To inscribe each name individually, St. Jacques disassembles the Cup from the top down, and then clamps the band being engraved in a homemade circular jig. She uses special small hammers and a series of letter stamps to strike each letter into the silver while using a metal level to keep the names as straight as possible. St. Jacques estimates that each name takes approximately a half-hour to inscribe and that it takes a non-continuous—not to mention patient—ten hours to complete every name for the winning team.

7. BUT THEY’RE NOT ALWAYS PERFECT.

Many champion player and team names are misspelled on the Cup. The name of the 1980-81 New York Islanders is misspelled as “Ilanders,” and the 1971-72 Boston Bruins’ name is misspelled as “Bqstqn Bruins.” Most of the errors are left on as they are—it would be too costly to fix the mistakes. But fans believe the errors add to the idiosyncratic nature of the Cup.

Corrections have been made, though: When 1996 champion Colorado Avalanche’s Adam Deadmarsh's name was spelled “Deadmarch” on the Cup, it was stamped out and corrected after he publicly stated how heartbroken he was about the error.

8. SOMETIMES THE WINNING TEAMS DON’T PLAY BY THE RULES.

The NHL will allow no more than 52 names from each year's winning team to be engraved, with the assumption that the people included are affiliated with or have played on that club during the Stanley Cup finals.

But Peter Pocklington—the former Edmonton Oilers owner perhaps best known for trading away The Great One himself, Wayne Gretzky—included his father, Basil, on the list of names to go along with the 1983-84 champion Oilers, despite the fact that his father wasn’t officially affiliated with the team. Once found out, the league had the engraver strike out Basil’s name with a series of capital Xs (above).

Stanley Cup Trivia #9 thru #13
9. BUT SOMETIMES, THERE ARE EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES.

When the Detroit Red Wings won the Cup in 1998, the team asked that Vladimir Konstantinov's name be engraved on the Cup, even though he didn’t play that year. The NHL allowed it because Konstantinov was a team member who was seriously injured in a car accident before the Wings defended their title.

There are also a couple of instances where no names were inscribed at all, like when the Cup wasn’t awarded in 1919 due to an outbreak of Spanish Flu. It also wasn’t awarded for the 2004-05 season because of a lockout between the league and the players union. The entire space for the players’ names reads “SEASON NOT PLAYED.”

10. SOME PEOPLE MAKE MULTIPLE APPEARANCES.

Henri Richard, brother of Montreal Canadiens legend Maurice “Rocket” Richard and a hockey great in his own right, is on the Cup a record 11 times as a player, while the legendary Scotty Bowman appears on the Cup the most for a coach with nine Stanley Cup wins as the skipper for the Red Wings, Penguins, and Canadiens.

With 24 victories, the Canadiens have taken home Stanley Cup more than any other NHL team—though their last win, unfortunately for Habs fans, was back in 1993. Montreal also holds the record for most consecutive Cup wins with five in a row from 1956 to 1960.

11. ONE FAN TRIED TO STEAL THE CUP—BUT NOT FOR THE REASON YOU'D EXPECT.

Montreal fans are so adamant about the Cup that during the 1962 playoffs, when the Cup was on display at Chicago Stadium for the defending champion Black Hawks (the name was compressed to “Blackhawks” in 1986), Habs fan Ken Kilander attempted to take the Cup and walk right out the door with it. When a police officer caught and questioned him, Kilander responded, “I want to take it back where it belongs, to Montreal.”

12. THE STANLEY CUP ISN’T ONLY FOR MEN.

Twelve women have their names inscribed on the Cup. The first was Marguerite Norris, who was the president of the Detroit Red Wings for their 1954-55 season victory. Sonia Scurfield is the only Canadian woman to have her name inscribed; she was the co-owner of the 1988-89 champion Calgary Flames.

13. SOME PEOPLE ARE SUPERSTITIOUS ABOUT IT.

Various players are wary of the Cup if they haven’t won it yet, and steer clear if they’re still in contention—in fact, some players on conference champion teams won’t even touch the respective Western Conference Campbell Bowl or Eastern Conference Prince of Wales Trophy so they don’t jinx their team’s chances at the real prize!

Stanley Cup Trivia #14 thru #17
14. THE CUP HAS A CHAPERONE.


The Cup is always accompanied by at least one representative of the Hockey Hall of Fame, dubbed the “Keeper of the Cup.” The current Keeper, Philip Pritchard, has held the position since 1991 and even maintains a Twitter account to update followers on where the Cup goes from day to day.

Way back when the Cup was first donated, Lord Stanley mandated that two trustees must always be appointed to care for the Cup and ensure it was kept in proper condition. The two current trustees are Brian O’Neill and Ian “Scotty” Morrison, and according to the Hockey Hall of Fame, they “have absolute power over all matters regarding the Stanley Cup.”

15. THE CUP BELONGS TO THE PLAYERS … FOR ONE DAY.

The NHL allots each championship team one hundred off-season days with the Cup (accompanied by the Keeper, of course) to do with it as they wish. It was the 1994-95 New Jersey Devils who formalized the tradition of giving each player one personal day with the Cup during the off-season. In fact, since the ‘03 season, the Hall of Fame has been keeping journals of the Cup’s travels with each winning team. Though some players use their day with the trophy for peaceful reflection, others have gone a bit crazy with Lord Stanley’s Cup, as you’ll see below.

16. THE STANLEY CUP HAS GONE SWIMMING AT LEAST THREE TIMES.

Following their 1991 victory over the Minnesota North Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins legend Mario Lemieux hosted the team at his house. When Lemieux wasn’t looking, Penguins winger Phil Bourque decided he wanted to see if the Cup could float—and threw the trophy into the captain’s in-ground pool. It didn’t float, and immediately sank to the bottom (thankfully, it was recovered unharmed).

Two years later the Cup also found the bottom of Montreal Canadiens goaltender Patrick Roy’s pool. But in 2002, when Red Wings goaltender Dominik Hašek attempted to swim with the Cup, the Keeper had had enough: He demanded Hašek dry off the trophy and give it back, thus cutting short his allotted personal day.

17. AND IT ONCE SPENT ALL NIGHT IN AN OTTAWA CANAL.

When the Ottawa Hockey Club, now known as the Ottawa Senators, won the Cup in 1905, the members of the “Silver Seven” had a little too much fun celebrating their victory. After the team banquet, some not-so-sober players brought the trophy outside and decided to test their accuracy by trying to kick the then-small Cup into Ottawa’s Rideau Canal.


Once successful, they went on their drunken way and forgot all about it—until their teammates realized the next day that the trophy was missing. Lord Stanley’s Cup was retrieved and given to a player named Harry Smith, the most responsible man on the team, for safekeeping.

Stanley cup trivia #18 thru #21
18. THE MONTREAL CANADIENS WON THE CUP IN 1924, AND THEN PROMPTLY FORGOT ABOUT IT.


When the members of the 1924 champion Canadiens got a flat tire on the way to the team’s victory banquet at owner Leo Dandurand’s house, they had to remove the Cup from the trunk of the car to get to the spare tire. The players, eager to celebrate their win, quickly changed the tire and made their way to the party. When the traditional time came for each player to drink champagne from the silver bowl, the Cup was nowhere to be found. The players had left it on the side of the road! They hopped in their car and sped back to the place where they had changed the flat and found the Cup in a snow bank on the side of the road—right where they had left it.

But that wasn’t the first time a Montreal hockey team had forgotten the Cup. The 1907 Montreal Wanderers left it at the home of a team photographer; the photographer’s mother used the Cup as a flower pot until the team came back to retrieve it!


19. TWO BABIES HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED IN THE CUP.

After the Colorado Avalanche won the 1995-96 championship, defenseman Sylvain Lefebvre used his personal day with the Cup to have his daughter christened in the top bowl.

Eleven years later, after the Detroit Red Wings won in 2007-08, Swedish left-winger Tomas Holmström brought the silverware back to his native country so that his cousin could baptize his 7-week-old daughter in the trophy.

20. AND IT HAS SEEN ITS FAIR SHARE OF VICE.
The Edmonton Oilers were a force to be reckoned with in the 1980s. Between 1984 and 1990, the team won five Stanley Cups and were led by two hockey greats, Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier (above). Legend has it that after their 1986-87 win, Messier brought the Cup to an Edmonton strip club called the Forum Inn and set the trophy on the main stage. One of the ladies dancing at the club then reportedly incorporated the Cup into her risqué routine.

When he won the Cup again in 1994 with the New York Rangers, Messier and his teammates brought the trophy to another strip club—Scores in Manhattan.

21. IT ALSO MIGHT HOLD A CURSE, AMONG OTHER THINGS…

When Messier and the Rangers won in 1994, it ended a record 54-year championship drought for the Broadway Blueshirts (the team hadn’t won since the 1939-40 season). Fans believe that the curse might have been brought on because the Rangers disrespected the Cup.

During the ’39-’40 season, the mortgage on the Rangers’ home rink—at the time the third incarnation of Madison Square Garden—was finally paid off. To celebrate, the management of the team symbolically burned the mortgage documents in the bowl of the Stanley Cup. Then, left-winger Lynn Patrick and his teammates allegedly urinated in the Cup’s bowl to bizarrely celebrate their victory. The Rangers finally took home the trophy again in 1994, but they haven’t won hockey’s ultimate prize since.

Stantley Cup Trivia #22
22. AND THE CUP WENT TO WAR.

It’s been all over the world, from Russia to the Czech Republic to Sweden, but in 2007, the Stanley Cup went to war. To boost morale for Canadian and American troops serving in the Middle East, the Cup was flown into an active war zone at Camp Nathan Smith in Kandahar, Afghanistan, for a meet and greet. Canadians love nothing more than hockey, and you can read up on the reactions from the troops on the Hall of Fame’s Stanley Cup Journal when it went to Afghanistan

Please Vote Joey #193862 For COTD!
Hello! My name is Joey and I am a 2 year old Maine Coon from Concord, NC. I am running for COTD on Febuary 28th, 2013. I need as many votes as possable to win. I was wondering if you could come by my page a leave me a vote? Thank you!
-----------------------------
Here is my story:
I was less than a year old when my old owners droped me off in a odd neighborhood. They left me without any food, water or shelter.
I was parted from my family at brith. I didn't have a mommy cat so I had no one to feed or clean me. I didn't know anything about the real world or humans. Humans to me were like aliens and cars were like their spaceships! MOL!
I was born in a drain in my neighborhood. My mommy cat forgot about me when she was traviling whith my other siblings and Daddy.
I was the runt...the smallest of the litter.
I was so small and skinny when my new owners found me. I needed food. I hadn't had any in 2 months. It was raining when I wondered up on their porch. I was wet, cold, thirsty and hungery.
With a little help, I am ow the cutest, sweetest little boy you will ever meet!
I want to get COTD to show everyone that cats aren't only animals....they are God's little creatures. We are all the same. Every cat has a heart taht needs love. Some humans don't like animals....mostly cats. They thing that we are nasty little varments that don't have feelings. But we do...we need love.....we need kindness...we need to be honored.
Thank you for the votes!
Love,
Joey

First Period Snowball Classic
PERIOD ONE coming up
K. EASY and RASCAL face off for the puck drop. The Royals get possession and K.SPARKY and K.SHADOW quickly pass the fat mousepuck back and forth and right in front of Mighty Mack is K. WINSTON who DRILLS it into the net with a slap shot.

ROYALS ahead 1-0.

Still first period
K. EASY faces DOLLY this time and she steals it away from him, poking it between his legs to QUINCY who passes it off to SASHA. But K. ANDERSON scoops the puck and sends it rolling up to K. BENNIE who is looking so innocent and handsome in front of MIGHTY MACK. K. BENNIE pokes the puck to the far corner of the net leaving MM sprawled.
ROYALS up 2-0.

Still first period
K. EASY wants another go at DOLLY so they face off at center ice. She steals the puck again but, K. EASY hooks her leg with his stick, sending her sliding across the ice. K. MIKE races to the recue before his wife hits the boards. “Are you alright, Sweetheart?” “Who’s side are you on? Asks the coach.
TWEEEEEEET! Penalty.. 2 minutes on K. EASYfor hooking. He grins as he skates off. AMMIE sticks her tongue out at him as they pass each other on the ice.

Still first period
This time, K. INDIE faces off against Capt. KELSEE who would not be his first choice. She is tough and knocks him rolling as she grabs the puck and simply skates over him. KELSEE controls the puck all the way to the net, where K. CASEY waits patiently.
She shoots, he deflects; she gets the rebound and smacks it right over his left shoulder to get a POWER PLAY GOAL.
KELSEE read his statistics and he’s a little slower to react on that side.


ROYALS still ahead 2-1.

K. LEO takes his turn at the face off against MILO. They are pretty evenly matched in size and scrabble for control of the puck.
Q.LILY pokes a stick in and trips MILO.

AMMIE smiles sweetly at Q. LILY as she skates by her friend in the sin bin.

K. LEO and MILO face off again and the PEASANTS get control, racing toward K. CASEY like a runaway engine.
K.SPARKY and K.SAMMY are down there, ready to deflect the puck.
ZEUS takes a shot and it dings off the side pole back to SNICKERS who shoots again. SNICKERS misses and K.MIKE recovers the puck, skating around the back of the net waiting for the Royals to get into position.
He takes off and passes to K.ANDERSON who passes to Q.A. MISS MILLIE who gets clipped by JAKE BLUES.
TWEEET! Penalty 2 minutes on JAKE BLUES for wing clipping.
Q LILY leaves the box as JAKE BLUES goes to the PEASANTS penalty box, wearing a feather on his helmet.

first period ends
Face off is in front of MIGHTY MACK between K.WINSTON and SHILO.
K. WINSTON flips the puck backwards, and with 3 seconds to go…..Q.LELU LEE takes a quick shot at the net and ..misses.

Second Period Snowball Classic
SECOND PERIOD BEGINS
At Goalie we have CODY LEE for the ROYALs and MALLOW for the PEASANTS.

The ref signals to 2 cats for the face off-Q. A. DUCKIE and ALEXI .
Now ALEXI is a bit panicked because Q. A. DUCKIE is a tough competitor.
CAPT KELSEE yells at ALEXI to “think big.”
But Q. A. DUCKIE pops the puck out from under ALEXI’S nose when ALEXI blinks and sends it right over to Q. AMBER LEE
who passes it to Q. LELU LEE
who passes it back to Q. A.DUCKIE
who runs over CLAY and SHOOTS the puck into the net.

MALLOW falls over backwards trying to catch the mousepuck as it went by.
The ROYAL QUEENS all high five and dance to “That’s the way uh ha uh ha. I like it uh ha uh ha.”
K.MIKE whips out his cellphone to take a picture of MALLOW on her back. “This will be viral on YouTube.”
K. CASEY shakes his head at the stupidity of that idea.
ROYALs up 3-1

K. MIKE and DEAN
are next to face off.
DOLLY blows a kiss to K.MIKE and he looks away at her.
DEAN steals the puck, passes it to AMMIE who skates all the way down to CODY LEE and fakes a shot before shooting one right under his pads.

TWEEET! “What?” AMMIE asks, swishing her tail at the ref.

The ref calls a penalty on K. ANDERSON for holding DEAN’s stick during the play.

The GOAL is still scored by AMMIE; K. ANDERSON gets 2 minutes
ROYALS up only 3-2

K. SAMMY faces off against TERRI
but before the puck drops CAPT. KELSEE is yelling at K. WINSTON for yanking on her tail.
SHILO comes over to help KELSEE and K. INDIE skates over to protect K. WINSTON by throwing catnip in the air.
All of a sudden gloves are flying and
TWEEEEET! 5 minute penalties for KELSEE and K. WINSTON for fighting.
SHILO get 2 minutes for being orange and
K. INDIE gets 2 minutes for making a mess on the ice.
The rink monkey crew comes out and sweeps the ice.

Still second period
OK, it’s now 3 PEASANTS on 2 ROYALS until K. ANDERSON gets out of the box in 30 seconds.
The PEASANTS should be able to score..
K. SAMMY stares at TERRI and yells “Boo” causing TERRI to fall face forward and land on the mousepuck.
TWEEEEET! NEW MOUSEPUCK NEEDED! THIS ONE IS SQUISHED. The ref calls. “Try again guys.”
K. SAMMY smiles evilly
and TERRI scoops up the mousepuck anyway,
passes it off to Capt. KELSEE who easily SHOOTS it INTO the net past K. CODY LEE, who was momentarily dazzled by Q. A. YUM YUM’s beauty and sneak kisses.

Tied 3-3

Third Period Snowball Classic
THIRD period
THIRD PERIOD GOALIES are K. CASEY and SAMMY (NH5)

Q. A. MISS MILLIE faces off against SASHA.
The PEASANTS are short one cat as AMMIE is still in the penalty box, filing her nails.

QUINCY and Q. LILY jostle for control of the mousepuck as
Capt KELSEE and Q. LOLA wait to see where they are going.
K. MIKE sneaks a kiss by DOLLY and gets hit in the back by a flying mousepuck.
“Ouch!”
“Oh, I got it,” yells DOLLY as she skates away toward K.CASEY at the net with SHILO and TERRI in hot pursuit.
K. INDIE and K. BENNIE are waiting-
K. BENNIE has his tail swishing and K. INDIE is taking up a lot of space. ANDY is hiding out near the corner of the net, but so is K. EASY.
Will the PEASANTS score again?

TWEET!
TWEEET! 2 minute penalty on MILO for unsportsmanlike conduct-mooning K. CASEY who is sick & tired of seeing that orange butt.
MILO heads to the penalty box, grinning. ANDY shakes his paw at him for being stupid.

Still third period
Face off in front of K. CASEY. K. SHADOW against ELWOOD.
The ROYALS get control and Q. AMBER LEE takes the puck to center ice and
passes it to K. LEO
who passes it to Q. CHARLOTTE who misses the pass and
SNICKERS intercepts, swerving back to the Royals‘ net.

K. SAMMY reaches in and takes the puck away and everybody does an about face and skates back to the PEASANTS net where
SAMMY of NH5 is sweating at the size and speed of the cat coming toward him.
K. MIKE has the puck now with K. ANDERSON next to him. SLAP SHOT.
Mousepuck goes in. DOLLY cheers for K. MIKE. “Ooops, sorry,” she murmurs.

PEASANTS STILL UP 5-4.

TIMEOUT called by Royals.

AMMIE steps out of the penalty box ready to finish them off.

TWEET TWEET
Q. A. DUCKIE faces off against Capt KELSEE.
Tense moment of hissing and growling and the ref wonders if he should call in another pair.
“Just drop the puck,” growls the 2 girl cats.

The mousepuck goes flying into the corner where K. SPARKY and CLAY struggle to get it out from under their skates.
A. YUM YUM and JOJO add to the group trying to dig out the mousepuck who simply gives up and lays there.

“Oops. Is it dead?” K. LEO asks skating over to look at the inert rodent. The ref skates over.


YO
“Cleanup in the corner. And bring another mousepuck.”
The rink monkey crew race out with a stretcher
while the next mousepuck walks to the face off circle. He’s a big one, smoking a catnip cigar.

He blows catnip smoke at Q. A. DUCKIE and Capt. KELSEE right before the drop and they both blink.
Off he goes scampering toward the PEASANTS net and back door. It’s mass chaos but Q. A. SUGAR reaches him first with just a little wing flap and smacks the mousepuck into the net.

GAME is tied at 5-5 and the whistle blows.
OVERTIME!

Still 1-1

ROUND #6
Q. LOLA does a little samba as she skates down the ice, swerves at the last second and fires the mousepuck between MIGHTY MACK’s knee pads.
BUT it doesn’t go through. MISS

CLAY spends a moment staring at MM. Where to stuff it?
He skates to the far right, rolling the mousepuck as he goes and shoots just when MM has left the crease.
ZING! In goes the mousepuck right over MIGHTY MACK’s stick.

Vote and Thank you
Thank you for you sympathy. We miss Vicki. Ellwood City is north of Pittsburgh about 50 mile. Vicki was actually in Slippery Rock Pa and that is also north of Pittsburgh about 50 mile. We recently rescued two more strays that were abandoned or feral within Butler Pa while we were there. One was wounded and both went to a loving home and got out of the cold, however something went wrong with the stitching and our Ozzy has been at the vets for over a week. I have not heard all the details yet but I am waiting and praying that all goes well. It was a joyous moment to have found them a home together and got Ozzy to the vet so I want him to get back home and enjoy his indoor save life soon.

Come visit me, Vicki, Tina, Izy & Magellan.

did i tell you that orange crush was janet's favorite sods when she was growing up? yup, she loved orange soda and this was what she asked for until she found ginger ale and another which she likes better now. used to be a grape and briefly a raspberry, but the later is on her most not liked list now, just the fla- vor which doesn't taste good or something. well time to run along more to vote for, a lot! sandy

hi orange crush!
we're not the ones to leave just one vote for an entire group, but instead prefer to vote/blog individually which takes hours. depending on how long janet makes the entries, sometimes only long enough for a single sentence. you should see her first thing when she gets up at 4 on work mornings, she's on racing through things then her "shitmachine" her 17 year old son' natty's name for this '03 computer which does what it wants when it wants like freezing up and or crashing! it's famous for that! but we can mange to put up with the crap for another 2-3 months till the income tax refunds come in. a workshop for college financial aid wants her taxes done before january 26 and likely no way that's going to happen, you have till the 31st to get the w-2 forms out to employees so not likely for her, she'll just bring what she has and they'll just have to go by that and be thankful she's got it! ana!
