The Stanley Cup, now with names

stanley-cup-with-names.jpgThe Stanley Cup's summer travels with the Los Angeles Kings are over. Only thing left is to present the Cup at the first home game, but the National Hockey League is in work stoppage over a new contract for the players. So there's no telling whether that will even happen this year. Meanwhile, the Cup has been inscribed with the names of 53 members of the Kings' organization, only about half of them actual players. The top line features principal owner Phil Anschutz, his wife Nancy, and co-owner Ed Roski.
