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.
The captain of the winning team.
Each member of a Stanley Cup winning team will get one full day during which they will have sole possession of the Stanley Cup.
This year the Stanley Cup was won by the Pittsburgh Pinguins .Every player gets it for a short time to show off in his home town. Eg: Sidney Crosbie (Captain) will show it in his home town of Cole harbour, Nova Scotia Canada
Anyone on the winning team that has played one game in the Stanley Cup Finals series. So if someone gets injured in the Western Conference finals and doesn't play in the Stanley Cup final, he wlll not get his name on it. Also, the head coach gets his name on it.
The last Canadian team to win the Stanley Cup was the Montreal Canadians, during the 1992,93 season.
Each player, GM, Coach gets to host the Cup for one day.
The home team will be the team that finished higher in point standings during the regular season. As for a prediction, I think that it will be a rematch of the 2008 cup final. Only time will tell!
