Hypothetical: Stanley Cup scenarios
In my research to better understand why and the consequences of the last time the season was cancelled, I discovered that in 2006 the NHL said it might be willing to reward the Stanley cup to a non NHL team if there's another cancelled season. Since it looks like this one will be cancelled, I am wondering then who would then compete for the cup? A team in the AHL? KHL? Or would it be kept as what Lord Stanley's original intent: For it to be rewarded to the best Canadian amateur team?
