Hockey players are extraordinarily superstitious, and the long-held belief that players not touch the Stanley Cup until they’ve actually won it is widely kept as virtual law. But Eric Belanger was particularly amusing. Although he refused to touch the Cup, he teased over and over again, putting his fingers close and then drawing them back quickly. Even when he was having his photo taken with the Cup, he put his arms around the Cup making it appear that he was touching the trophy but made certain he maintained a minute distance between him and the Cup.
Funny little anecdote from Philippe Boucher's day with the cup. What other trophy does these kinds of things to players.

Weird part is that for the most part, the cup probably won't spend alot of time in Pittsburgh. As can be seen from the first two players who had it, it typically goes back to their home towns for their day with the cup. So that they can spend it with their family and friends.
