Stanley Cup

Accept no "real" substitutes

The so-called #NHL "Seasonal" championship is a fictitious honor tracked by Ed The K Motley (mostly on Twitter) where he treats the NHL as if it had a championship to be defended like a WWE Championship or UFC Championship throughout the regular season.

Each season starts with the fabled championship on the defending Stanley Cup Champions. After the pre-season games are over, that team must defend the championship during every game of their season. If another team beats the reigning "Seasonal" champions in regulation or overtime, then that team assumes the honor and defends it at every game until the season is over.

Obviously, the only truly important championship in NHL is the Stanley Cup, but the #NHL "Seasonal" championship adds another element of entertainment to the season, much like any given "fantasy league" or illegal gambling.
