With or without you

The folks at Free Stanley are campaigning to have the Stanley Cup awarded this year even without the NHL. It would be great if they succeeded, but I doubt the NHL would enable anything that shows the sport continuing without them. The Cup was initially to be given to the nest amateur hockey team in Canada, but the NHL has had control of it for many decades now. Regardless of their success, the NHL needs to see players and fans prepared to carry on with the sport with or without them. I hope this makes the league squirm also.
