The trophy was made by Gehry
and it is definitely lacking substance. It looks transient. Gehry is an interesting architect, but blew it on this cultural icon.
The trophy should have been big, something that dwarfs the players, not the other way around. I hope they modify it, so teams/players can be inscribed and it loses the plastic sheathing.
I laughed when all the players were skating around with it. They looked like they didn't know what to do with it? Lamp shade or laser turret. Cultural icon or icon of arrogant architect.
Definitely not my cup of World Hockey domination.
