The real Stanley Cup

Recommended Posts

The Lord Stanley's Cup has undergone some changes since its inception in 1893. I wanted to see what the cup would look like if all of the removed rings hadn't been removed. I'll likely be adding some infographic style information regarding which rings are which.

It weighs 33 pounds, except... Well... except it's so tall, that no one lifts it, so it just weighs 33 pounds...

The internet says that the Stanley cup weighs 34.5 pounds, this one is at least twice as big, if not a bit more, so following that logic this one would weight more than 70 pounds. Being that tall and heavy, I'd imagine it being carried in a bear hug by all the players and that doesn't look really triumphic.

Sweet mama mia! that's some trophy right there! I could imagine a coach trying to lift it up, only that would seems to which it would be lying down on the coach after attempting to lift it. Ouch.
