And yet we'll still probably see one of those four win another Cup before the Canucks win their first.

And those who are sympathetic to the Booins still haven't had their butts properly kicked around the moon for 2011 yet.

Detroit was part of the Wings/Devils/Avalanche/Stars Tyranny ;).

This discussion kinda came to a close, but it’s also worth noting the Jackets gave up the first to get out from under the Clarkson contract / offseason cap hit, and the second so VGK wouldn’t take Anderson or Korpisalo.

 

It’d be pretty much impossible for them to sign Panarin and Bobrovsky to extensions without shedding Clarkson.

It's still pretty amazing to me that between 2002/03 and 2011/12 there were 9 different champions in 9 seasons. The longest stretches before that was 6, happening twice between 2000/01-2006/07 and 1991/92-1996/97.

 

The playoff format between 1998/99 to 2012/13 (14 cups) only had 3 teams win it more than once in that span: Devils ('00, '03), Red Wings ('02, '08), and Blackhawks ('10, '13). The other 8 cups were won by 8 different teams. Since the playoff format switch (and conference realignments) in 2013/14, there have been 3 different cup winners in 4 seasons but also features the first repeating winner since the 1996/97 & 1997/98 seasons. With a guaranteed new winner this year, it will be 4 different winners out of 5 years.

 

Even though the last 9 years has seen only 4 different winners, 3 of them multi-winners, the playoff format change occurred right in the middle of that stretch. It's interesting to think what might have happened had it not changed. Would there truly been a reign of tyranny by those 3 teams (ft Boston) or would different matchups have changed what names were later etched on the cup?
