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! - jackgustoV 1 Comment
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
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
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
Mats is the best player here - Mike bossy
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
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
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.
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
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.
Still Holds the record for most points in a single game with ten, if that's any consolation? - jackgusto
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
