I was down at the Hockey Hall of Fame a couple weeks ago, with my father in town from B.C., and spent a couple hours looking around what's become a pretty familiar place the past few years. One thing I was surprised to see was this entry on the Stanley Cup, something I hadn't noticed or heard of previously:
Right there at the bottom, dead centre, the lockout immortalized on the championship trophy (it reads '2004-05: Season Not Played'). It made me wonder whose decision it was to put it there and if it was the right one. Seems like an ugly mark on an otherwise beautiful thing.
A triviality I guess, but like I said, it surprised me.
Should the labour dispute be engraved on the Stanley Cup?
