The Stanley Cup is the greatest trophy in all of professional sports, and there's only one. But much to the credit of the NHL's impassioned fans, many have constructed replicas of the revered tower of silver and history. Some fans have done an incredible job, using hand-crafted solid oak and baked goods, while others emptied several rolls of tin foil or just stacked some aluminum garbage cans. It's all good--but we're still going to mock the crappy cups and tip a cap to the worthy replicas. So now that puck has dropped for the Conference Finals, let's take a look.
