Bettman and the Cup


Recommended Posts

I would vote for Buffalo Rick/HockieJunkie over Bettman......Seriously though, can you imagine just how much more enthusiastic players would be receiving the Cup from the Keepers of the Cup versus Bettman? Both of those gentlemen are well known and revered for their care of the Cup. It would only seem fitting for them to present it and do away with all of the booing that Bettman has and always will bring to a cup presentation.

My big question is, if it's not someone observing all the games or traveling with the Cup, how do you make sure they're on hand?


Do you really intend to have Jonathan Toews go to all the games that the Cup can be awarded, potentially starting at game 4? Are you really going to make him watch these games live, knowing his team was an OT goal away from participating? Are you going to bounce Wayne Gretzky, Stan Makita, Ray Borque, or whomever from city to city so they can be onhand to present the Cup?


Just have the keepers discreetly out of sight in the tunnel, and let the captain take it from them and hold it up as he steps onto the ice.
