OK. The Hockey Hall Of Fame is in Toronto, in a pretty
nice building. (I've only been in the old place which
was over on the CNE grounds) Next time I'm in Brampton,
I'll have to make a trip into the city to go through it.

When the cup is won, does the cup come back to the HHF, or
does it stay in the city where the winning teams from? If
it resides in the HHF, how long does it stay with the cup
winning team?

It does have a pretty colorful history.

Actually, ccording to an article I read somewhere (I think a hockey
magazine that I should still have around here...), there are 3 stanley
cups.  From what I remember, the original is the one that stays in the
HHF except when it is presented to the champions.  Then there is one that
gets passed around to the players to take from place to place during the
summer and one that is constantly on the road for show (where I cannot
remember).

I heard on one of the local Detroit radio stations that there are
actually 3 cups, the original & 2 travelling ones. This would make
sense seeing that the cup is the centerpiece of the HHOF.

When I visited the HHOF, I seem to recall the "Stanley Cup Information
Person" mentioning that there were actually six of them - the original,
plus a few for the players to wreck as well as a "display" version.
