    Favorite Stanley Cup Winning Teams

    Yes, I know your favorite Stanley Cup Winning Team is the 1994 Rangers. Ignoring all Ranger Cup winning teams, what are your favorite Stanley Cup winning teams, and why?

    Mine:
    1996-7 Detroit Red Wings - Stever Yzerman, Sergei Federov, Nicklas Lidstrom, Igor Larionov, Brendan Shanahan. So much offensive skill on the ice, controlling the puck, fun to watch. Darren McCarty, Joey Kocur, some serious thumpers if the game got nasty.

    1988-9 Calgary Flames - Hakan Loob, Doug Gilmour, Al MacInnis, Theo Fleury, Gary Roberts. Because the franchise has had so many disappointing and forgettable years, glad they got a cup

    2000-1 Colorado Avalanche, because Ray Bourque won the Stanley Cup

    Oddly, two of these three had Mike Vernon as goalie.

    1998-1999 would have been great if Buffalo Sabres and Hasek could have taken out the Stars

    Lol.

    2012 Kings were amazing to watch. That run was just special. Eighth seed who lost four games all postseason.

    If I take off my Rangers-tinted-glasses, last year's Pens were also pretty fun to watch and another good story. Mid-season coaching change, all of the youth playing "big" roles at the end of the season. Matt fucking Murray.

    That "8th seed" was 2 points from being a 3 seed.

    Still, they went 16-4 in the post season and it was pretty fun to watch.

    2016/17 New York Rangers

    Every one thought they were stupid for "failing" to hold onto the 1st Wild Card to avoid the Metropolitan Division and match up with Montreal in the first round, instead pushing out Columbus. That set up a first round battle with the defending Champion Pittsburgh Penguins. Well, they beat the Penguins in 6, then defeated Washington in 5. They still got their match up with Montreal coming out of Atlantic in the Conference Final, going to that thrilling game 7 double OT where Kreider fittingly scored the series winning goal, after a lengthy review showed he was pushed into Carey Price (who is now out for all of next season) and that the puck crossed the line before the net came dislodged.

    Then to win the Cup in 5 games on home ice against the LA Kings, themselves on another improbable run from their 8th seed finish, to mirror the 2014 Stanley Cup Final? You can't make that shit up.

    Didn't they have to win like a million games in a row at the end of the season to get in?

    Yeah, they went on a tear at the end of the regular season.

    I really enjoyed the 05-06 Oilers run, even though the Canes won.

    The 08 Wings and the 13 Blackhawks are my favorite non-Ranger cups. Every other one in my life time has either annoyed or disappointed me.

    08 Wings was first Euro captain, right? I remember all the silly xenophobic nonsense permeating that season about how you couldn't have a Euro captain and win. Then Lidström was like hey fucked, Don Cherry.

    Yep. All the more reason I enjoyed it, I'm sure. It was also peak Datsyuk, which is just the best.
