Wales of a mistake or Photoshop?

In a find by Washington Capitals blog Rock the Red,  a snapshot has surfaced of the Prince of Wales Trophy which was supposedly taken during a two-day Chicago Blackhawks fan convention in late July.

The problem?  The trophy is awarded to the Eastern Conference Champions.  And that isn’t the Capitals.

Is it a Photoshop or simply a big mistake?

Also thanks to @sbaicker for the find.

UPDATE: According to Sarah Baicker, a Hockey Hall of Fame spokesman said…

“Like the Stanley Cup, the Prince of Wales Trophy hasn’t been engraved yet. I can guarantee you those photos are doctored.”
