Lord Stanley’s Cup

I’m all for this:

Some amateur Canadian hockey players are taking their fight for the Stanley Cup to court. The award is given annually to the National Hockey League’s best team, but that isn’t happening this year due to cancellation of the season because of a labor dispute. The plaintiffs say the coveted cup was donated by Britain’s Lord Stanley, a former governor general of Canada, in 1892 so that the top ranking amateur team in the country could be awarded. The group says Lord Stanley’s wishes should not be ignored because of the NHL dispute. They are asking the Ontario Superior Court to rule the Stanley Cup a charitable trust and not the property of the NHL.
