I'm noticing it's becoming a regular thing for the captain not to touch the Conference trophy like it's got the cooties or something.
Calgary's Iginla did pick it up and brought The Campbell trophy (is that what it's called?) to his team as Tampa's Anderchuck took a quick picture with The Prince of Wales trophy and didn't even want to look at it.
I know that's done to make it seem like you are not settling for the conference trophy, but it's strange seeing they bring the trophy out, make a presentation and the winner of it ignores it. Especially considering this is Tampa's first conference title.
So I put my vote is showing the conference trophy some respect. Even though it's not the BIG CUP, smaller trophies have feelings too!

I like this idea, kinda in the same vein as how guys who play in the NHL but don't win a championship refuse to touch the Stanley Cup, even after retirement. Kinda adds to the mystique of the trophy, IMO.
