The entire team gathered around the trophy and NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly but didn't touch it.
Brad Richards, when asked why, said "Well, I just‑‑ Marty and I have been there, Carcillo, unfortunately, just wasn't dressed, so we didn't put his opinion in, but no one else was dressed that's been there. We just won it without touching it, and it was instructed that way when we won. If half the team was there maybe we would have had more debate on the ice, but it wasn't much debate. We're not doing it, and that's where we went with it." (via the NHL)
