Each member of a Stanley Cup winning team will get one full day during which they will have sole possession of the Stanley Cup.

The Stanley Cup that is presented to the players, has the seal of the Hockey Hall of Fame on the bottom. You can check the Wikipedia article about the Stanley Cup at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Cup
Each player of the winning team of the Stanley cup gets to spend a day with the cup. After all players have spent their day with it will be passed on to the team that wins next year's Stanley Cup.
NHL players only receive extra money for winning the Stanley Cup if they have an incentive clause in their contract. For instance, they might make an extra 20,000$ if they make the playoffs, and an extra 100,000$ if they win the Stanley Cup.
you don't have to pay, they pay you, because the only people that get to "host" the Stanley cup are the NHL players that have won it.. ;)

35.25 inches (89.54 centimeters)
10 players have won the cup 3 different times.
Usually spelling the players name wrong.
Only two - Mikael Samuelsson and Aaron Rome. Mikael won the 2008-2009 Stanley Cup when he was a member of the Detroit Red Wings and Aaron won it when he was a member of the Anaheim Ducks. He didn't play a game in the Stanley Cup Final so his name wasn't engraved on the Cup. However, they did include him on the Stanley Cup winning photo and gave him a Stanley Cup ring.
The player with the most rings is Henri "the pocket rocket" Richard who has a total of 11 Stanley cup rings , and is also the younger brother of one of the greatest players of all time: Maurice Richard
