Everywhere, that is, except, at Scope. The Admirals want no part of the trophy.

Abiding by one of hockey's long-standing superstitions, the Admirals have avoided all contact with the championship trophy leading up to the best-of-seven Calder Cup finals against the Toronto Marlies, which begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Scope. During a television feature on the playoffs this week, Admirals forward Brandon Segal went so far as to film his interview in a separate studio to avoid even looking at the Cup. For another interview, forward Eric Neilson was blindfolded.
