In the last few years,

Pits = Cooke
Detroit = Bertuzzi
Chicago = Sopel
Boston = Nobody I can think of, (funny how we make it to the LAST possible game, and not a current or previous Canuck wins it.. Then next season...)
LA = Mitchell

Seem's like we're almost a good luck charm for some players. You may as well throw Vancouvers name on the cup, or at least a letter from our team name beside each team that's won a cup, almost every player has played for Vancouver at one point. If theres 20 different players that have played for the Canucks at one point, and won a cup, it'd be like we did win a cup right?


...Right... =( :ph34r:

The league has a lot of players and turnover is pretty high. Just a coincidence. If you look at players traded from the Flyers or Oilers I'm sure they won more cups.

And to think what is really nagging at me about this whole post is the unnecessary apostrophe in the title. Make it stop!

Correct. I believe he was a Duck then. However, future Canuck Mikael Samuelsson was a Red Wing in 2008. Does that count?

I'm not sure why the OP stopped at 2008. It goes way farther back than that...

In 2007, the Ducks had Burke, Carlyle, May and Shannon.
The 2006 Hurricanes had Hedican.
The 2004 Lightning had Cullimore.
The 2003 Devils had Corey Schwab.
The 2002 Red Wings had Larionov & Slegr
The 2000 Devils had Mogilny
The 1999 Stars had Lidster
The 1997 & 1998 Red Wings had Larionov
The 1995 Devils had Dowd
The 1994 Rangers had Lidster (I'm still not happy about that one)
The 1993 Canadiens had Daigneault

More than anything, I think this goes to prove DownUnda's point. With how much movement there is in the league these days, many quality teams have players that came from the other quality teams. Not many players stay in one place any more.

Oh wow yeah I was going off the top of my head. Thank's for the way better list. We're like a good luck charm to some players. Even though they're on different team's im glad some Canuck's got a Stanley Cup ring =)

So by this logic we will eventually acquire one of the Bruins that beat us.

Also, it was Samuelsson for Detroit, not Bertuzzi.

Face it, the only way Canucks fans will ever see the cup in this city is when a player from the team that won is from Vancouver, like Lucic for example, and he brings it here to show it to everyone. This team is pathetic and they are going nowhere, so get used to it. lol.

I'm sure most teams are the same. You can't keep all players forever, have to change and adapt. It's kinda like saying 'Hossa is a bad luck charm for the finals' (when he made it 3 years in a row and won the cup once).

There's not a huge number of teams in the league, it's bound to happen.

It was actually kinda fun looking it all up. It was a bit of a trip down memory lane.

I was really happy for Willie Mitchell...he lives in Vancouver in the off-season and is one of the most honest players in the NHL. It's a shame he isn't still a Canuck, but to see him hold the Cup and be given the respect from Dustin Brown and the rest of the players on the Kings as the second guy to hold it was great to see.

Or the Flyers. Richards, Carter, Gagne, Williams, and Fraser, plus several coaches and front office members who played or worked for the Flyers.

Meh..


There's almost always someone from nearly every team in the NHL that wins a cup...especially in the salary cap era.


LA Roster is full of young guys who have moved up through the system, and even it has players that have played on just over 1/3 of the NHL's teams, sometimes multiple guys from ex teams, ie Philly and Edmonton:


Columbus
LA
Philly
Vancouver
Tampa Bay
Pittsburgh
Minnesota
Edmonton
Carolina
Colorado


Look at Boston last year:


Florida
Pittsburgh
Phillidelphia
Carolina
Montreal
Tampa Bay
Calgary
Atlanta
Toronto
Nashville
Ottawa
Anaheim
Buffalo
Colorado
Chicago
Phoenix
New York Islanders


That's over half of the NHL teams represented there.


Players move around a lot, even more so lately. Get used to seeing ex Canucks have success on other teams.
