Boston is a more pertinent example. They're a lot like Anaheim. Those 2 are outnumbered by Carolina, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, and Chicago in terms of winning cups in the post-lockout era.
Outnumbered as in what?

Carolina and LA are not in the same "suck for 5 years then win the cup" mold as Chicago and Pittsburgh.

Drafting Halak Markov Subban Desharnais late or as Undrafted FA's is also pretty spectacular.
