Did you know there are several misspelled names on the Stanley Cup? The winning team in 1980-81, for example, was The New York Islanders, which is misspelled as "Ilanders".
Even crazier, is that sometimes people try to sneak names onto the Cup. Since the NHL has a limit of 52 names to be engraved on the trophy per winning team, it's assumed that everyone submitted is involved with the team in some way. In 1984, Peter Pocklington, owner of the Oilers, put his dad's name on it! It was X'd out w/actual "x's" on the Cup.
