Top 10 Hockey Players That Never Won the Stanley Cupjackgusto List of the best Players in NHL History to not have their name engraved on Lord Stanley's Cup.
The Top Ten
He played for the Washington Capitals during the prime of his career, ENOUGH SAID. In spite of the fact the he played with the Caps during his campaigns, he still managed to compile over 700 goals! - jackgusto
Another depressing Cap fallen short of Lord stanley.. - capscaptain
Carried leafs through the dark ages
Mats is the best player here - Mike bossy
Wayne Gretzky has the most 100 point seasons with 15, Lemieux is second with 10, third place? Dionne! He's one of the absolute greatest players ever, period, yet he doesn't get the recognition he deserves because he didn't win a cup. However, on a list of the greatest players who never won the cup, he should be number 1 hands down.
Played between Dave Taylor and Charlie Simmer for a good portion of his career, at a time when the fans at the Los Angeles Forum were sort of indifferent to the Kings and ice hockey in general. Because of Dionne's passing Charlie Simmer recorded 56 goals in 1979-80 and the same total in 1980-81. - jackgusto
Guy deserve the cup
I feel so bad for Jarome Iginla because he’s 40 and he doesn’t want to retire because he wants the Stanley cup. And nobody hasn’t sign him all year and this fall maybe he won’t get sign too.
One of the most prolific scorer's of the early 1980's, Stastny was unfortunate to have landed in Quebec at a time when his brothers Marian and Anton were his line mates and the only other scoring help came from Real Cloutier and Michael Goulet. - jackgusto
Arguably the greatest passer of his era, with Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux being the only other players in the discussion. Oates was the reason for Brett Hull's remarkable 1990-91 campaign when he registered 86 goals. Maybe, if Detroit wouldn't have dealt him in the infamous Bernie Federko trade he could have won a few with the Red Wings in the 1990's. - jackgusto
Oates. What else to be said. Plus he plays on the caps so no Stanley Cup #TheSadLifeOfACapsFan - capscaptain
The catalyst and center piece of Buffalo's "French Connection", Perreault never really received the adulation that a player of his caliber truly deserved! - jackgusto
He deserves the cup
Great skating defenseman in the era that belonged to Paul Coffey and Ray Bourque. It's probably hard not to feel like you're overshadowed when you played defense in the 1980's with the aforementioned Coffey and Bourque as well as the likes of Al MacInnis and Larry Murphy. - jackgusto
He's a great offensive d-man and should've gotten into the hall years ago
IT was a menace with a bad attitude. But could puck with the best
Take him off the list, because Ovechkin won the Cup in 2018.
Sorry My Friend. Now Ovechkin Won the Stanley Cup. The date he won the Cup was on June 7, 2018. Ovechkin won the Cup.
Easily the best player to never win a cup. Sure, he's still got time - but 11 years is a career for many on this list.
Can he still win one? I guess, but if it doesn't happen he would be like Gretzky in LA.
Another early playoff exit!1 Comment
Traded by the Red Wings to the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1996, and they go on to win the 1996-97 Stanley Cup in a sweep of the Flyers. - jackgusto
Still Holds the record for most points in a single game with ten, if that's any consolation? - jackgusto
Anyone who can say that they played on a line with Gordie Howe can say that they were fortunate to have done so, the downside for Ullman was that he played in Detroit in the 1960's when championships were a memory. - jackgusto
Glad he won MVP at the NHL all-star game though.
Fourth most wins in NHL history. He consistently stepped up his game in the playoffs, often dragging horrible teams to the next round.
Even though he had plenty of chances to move to a contending team he was loyal to the Coyotes. He's the highest scoring Yote of all time and at one point was one of the most skilled in the NHL.
He's one of the best players to have ever existed in modern NHL. He's also the one who helped the Ottawa Senators boom into what they are today
You can only score 50 goals so many times from the left side of center and come up empty in the championship depatrment year after years. Goulet had his chance though, when he played with Roenick, Chelios, and Larmer in the1992 Stanley Cup Finals. - jackgusto
Came so close in 06 and had the misfortune of being homesick for Edmonton a year before the Kings win their first cup
Hall of Famer played till he was 40 with 15 seasons in the playoffs. Was the class of the league for so many years.
