How big should the Cup be?
At it's basic level, that's the question at the heart of the debate surrounding this story.
Whether or not all of the names of history are included on the Stanley Cup into eternity — well, debating that is a fool's game: It's an unreasonable and, quite simply, unworkable non-solution to a very practical problem.
The Cup at the size we're accustomed to weighs 35 pounds, a reasonable size for what it's made for (skating the victory lap and making like a stone penguin in the bottom of Mario's pool).
And, as Bryan Trottier said, isn't that what really matters?
If that means we lose the Maple Leafs from the Cup's visage in 26 years, so be it.
