Make your own Stanley Cup

For the first time in three years, their is no chance the Red Wings will hoist the Stanley Cup. But it's only been two years since they last won, much longer than the streak the Chicago Blackhawks still have going — since 1961.
The Red Wings' Stanley Cup drought breaker in 1997 left Chicago, a fellow Original-Six'er, with the longest Cup-less streak. Well, it looks as if the Blackhawks have a very good chance to finally win the Cup this season, up 2-0 over the miracle comeback Philadelphia Flyers.
The page designers over at the Chicago Tribune published a DIY Stanley Cup kit which only involves paper, scissors and tape.
It's unclear if you can order a back issue of the Tribune in order to construct the Cup, but it would be something fun to run the next time the Wings are in Cup contention.
