Same here, not a huge fan but it's good to see a local team win the championship.

A picture is worth a thousand words...



...and it's probably worth more than the trophy.

Is that the real trophy? I realize that it is just symbolic of the season's accomplishments but that thing looks like something I could make in my garage.

Looks like it is made out of cork board ... lol

I think you guys could make something that looked nicer than that thing.

It broke as he began to lift it to skate around the ice.

According to the douchebag DJ's on the Bear, it's the real trophy.

I think it was a form for a wedding cake that got stolen from a bakery.

Two things...

a. Do you guys *really* think the cup is that cheap?

b. How many keep forgetting that Google Image Search is your friend?

Look at the picutre where the guy is carrying it, the bottom is plywood and it looks like some rolled aluminum. I realize a trophy is just a symbol, but it looks kind of cheap.

Oh, my bad. They just failed to spend the $3.99 to buy the finish/stain for the wood.

Its a stunt trophy...literally.

Its not unusual to hand a disposable mockup to the players so they a sling it around, pour booze all over it, dry hump it in the locker room...whatever.

Same thing with most awards on TV. The ones handed out live are fake meant to be handed back immediatly off-stage.

Huber Trophy = Turner Cup?

According to what I read, the Turner Cup was retired in 2001 and the NAME was reinstated in 2007...as for the trophy itself...I'm not sure if the same trophy (that was retired) is used or not.

Stunt trophy or not...at least make the thing presentable. It looks like an 8th grade woods class made the damn thing.

The IHL ceased to exist in 2001 (I think) hence the retirement of the Turner Cup. With the elimination of the Colonial League last year they decided to revive the International Hockey League. All the old IHL records are restored and up for grabs again.

Even if there are only 6 teams in the league, I'm happy to see it called the IHL again. Feels like it's more important than the CHL. I'd like to see the AHL and IHL combine, but I don't know how realistic that is.

Listening to the Bear again today...the douchebag DJ's are interviewing a guy from the Journal Gazette who says the trophy shown in the picture is legit*. It's the actual trophy AND it's not the first time they've broken it.




* For what it's worth.

Yeah, a legitimate substitute!
