- I can barely imagine how frustrating watching hockey and looking at those Cup-winning dynasties has been for, say, a Sabres, Kings or Blues fan in the 70's and 80's.

Years since end of initial season or last Stanley Cup (franchise):

Edmonton Oilers: 21 (1990)

Montreal Canadiens:18 (1993)

New York Islanders: 28 (1983)

The Habs' Cup drought seems a bit better than average, when compared to other teams that existed in 1993, which is pretty much what I expected.
See above. The Dynasty Curse. The last three teams to win 3 in a row or more, have waited a long time for another. At least Habs gave us 2 more after 79...

I'd hate to be an Oilers or Isles fan. They probably never imagined droughts this long after their last one.
