Bill Lankhof of the Toronto Sun in a recent article Click Here ( points out that the Stanley Cup is not the sole possession of the NHL but is actually on loan -

"In 1947 there was a formal agreement between the trustees whereby the league was delegated the full authority ... making the Stanley Cup a competition for NHL teams," points out Gary Meagher, the NHL vice-president of public relations. He's right. You can check it in Total Hockey, 2nd Edition. Page 355. But wait...! The text goes on: "the agreement shall remain in force so long as the league continues to be the world's leading professional hockey league as determined by it's playing calibre, and in the event of dissolution or other termination of the National Hockey League, the Stanley Cup shall revert to the custody of the trustees."

That'd be interesting. If the NHL is locked out for the entire year, the Stanley Cup could theoretically be won by the champions of the next-most-prestigious league. I hadn't even considered that possibility... to me, “Stanley Cup” has always been synonymous with “National Hockey League”.

Very interesting. But will it happen?

3. We've had that here in Sweden, for the last four or five seasons, but got rid of it this season after lots of complaints. The major complaint, from coaches I believe, was that it was too much of a lottery. As a fan, I was happy seeing it go as well.
