I'm sorry... what?

1. Anaheim - 1993 - 20 years
2. Calgary - 1972 (Atlanta Flames moved to Calgary in 1980) - 41 years
3. Carolina - 1971 (Hartford Whalers, joined NHL in 1979, moved to Carolina in 1997) - 34 years in NHL
4. Minnesota - 2000 (franchise founded in 1997, started play in 2000) - 13 years
5. Nashville - 1998 (franchise founded in 1997, started play in 1998) - 15 years
6. San Jose - 1991 (franchise can be traced back to the Oakland Seals founded in 1968, moved to Cleveland, merged with the North Stars and then the franchise was essentially split into the North Stars and the 'expansion' Sharks) 22 years (since split)

Yes I know it's more than slightly off topic but I wanted to address that...
