The Stanley Cup's 125th anniversary homecoming brought Hall of Famers Mike Bossy, Paul Coffey, Keon, Frank Mahovlich, Bernie Parent Kevin Pierre-Louis Youth Jersey and Bryan Trottier to Ottawa's Rideau Hall, the residence of Canada's governor general. That trip included a variety of events and featured the ceremonial ground-breaking -- in fact, a face-off between Keon and Mahovlich on the Sparks Street pedestrian mall -- for a planned monument to celebrate Lord Stanley of Preston's sterling gift to Canada.ObrazekAt Rideau Hall, fans were lined up outside the door to see the Stanley Cups, plural, Governor General David Johnston and the NHL superstars who were in the house. Many also purchased a newly minted Canadian quarter-dollar coin, Trai Turner Jersey Womens on which the Cup was featured.ObrazekStunning in its simple beauty as it stood in Zach Mettenberger Jersey Womens Rideau Hall's Tent Room was the original trophy, a silver bowl commissioned in London in 1892 by Lord Stanley, Canada's sixth governor general, designed and produced for 10 guineas, roughly $50. This priceless trophy, in effect a native of Ottawa given the governor general's residence there, sits in the vault of the former downtown Toronto bank that is the Hockey Hall of Fame.Standing beside it, among the beaming players and dozens of excited minor-hockey players, was its taller, more familiar cousin, the multi-banded, generously engraved, beautifully imperfect Stanley Cup, the most cherished trophy in professional sports.I was reminded on this day, as I was throughout the year, that wherever you see the familiar Stanley Cup - and, even more magically, the original sterling bowl -- you will not see an unhappy face in the room.Two days later I walked with Brady Skjei Jersey Mahovlich the few hundred yards from the Fairmont Chateau Laurier Hotel to the monument ceremony, ambling past Canada's Senate on Wellington Street. It was in this Red Chamber that the stately "Big M" had served as an influential senator between 1998 and his retirement in 2013, and now he was telling one Walt Aikens Jersey Womens story after another about his hockey and political careers while strolling in a classic wool coat, red scarf and stylish Austrian hat.
