I think this article is a little more realistic about the chances of the Stanley Cup being awarded to a team from outside the NHL:
To sum it up:
1. The trustees control the Cup, not the NHL.
2. The trustees MAY (not MUST) award the Cup to a different team should the NHL season be cancelled.
3. The trustees MAY decide to award it to no one if the NHL season is cancelled just as they did in 2004.
4. The trustees (Ian (Scotty) Morrison and Brian O'Neill) are former NHL vice-presidents and are on record as saying "don't hold your breath" and "it's simply not going to happen".
From a motivation perspective it would be amazing if the trustees threatened to award the Stanley Cup to another team but there's no chance it actually happens.
