      Incorrect. While you are correct that there does exist a replica trophy, the replica serves the purpose of being put on display at the hockey hall of fame whilst the actual cup is on the road.

    It was sad to see the Stanley Cup fall off the table and tumble to the ground. It certainly won't look good for Newfoundland & Labrador. I have issue with the article which says the "Legs of the Table gave way". This was not because the table wasn't set up properly. If you watch the video you can see the Female RNC Officer move the table towards Michael Ryder, just before he places the Stanley Cup on top. By her doing this she caused the folding legs on the opposite side of the table to move inward and when Michael placed the cup on it, it buckled and down went the cup. If she had just stood there like she was suppose to and allow the cup to be placed there, without moving it, this would not have happened. I'm sure she was trying to be helpful but in this case it didn't help.

    I am a proud Newfoundlander, made even more proud by one of our own, Michael Ryder. Again we as Newfoundlanders can stand up and cheer for Michael and his acheievemnts. The second time in so many years a Newfoundlander wins and brings home Lord Stanley. I have played hockey my whole life and when you see someone from your own province do something like this you cannot help but feel great pride. Newfoundland is by far the best place in the world. Thank You Michael, and congradulations..

    Congrats to Michael and the people of Bonavista, but why do politicians have to be there?? This is a hockey story. Some of them never held a hockey stick in their hands. In St. John's he walked past a lady with an infant in her arms. Michael had the cup in his arms. After taking care of the cup, he walked back to the lady and signed something on the back of the infant. Looks good on ya Michael.
