I hope this isn't the first year for this trophy. It better have been this ugly for past winners because it would be an insult if this was made just for Canada.
this is the first time this cup was awarded. it was designed by some hoity-toity architect. it has not seen many favourable reviews.

and while it is brand new, it wasn't made 'just for Canada'. it would have been given to whoever won.

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.
