I think 5th seed has been the lowest.

'95 Devils.

edit, confirmed: New Jersey Devils (1995)– The Devils, seeded 5th in the Eastern Conference and without home ice advantage in any of the 4 rounds, upset the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins, each in 5 games, and rival Philadelphia Flyers in 6 games to get to the finals where they swept the heavily-favored Detroit Red Wings.

I didn't know that.. dang, thats pretty interesting.. I would have assumed a 6-7th seed has won it, I knew that an 8th seed has never..

OT: Maybe a more challenging question, how many times has an 8th seed team gone to the SCF and the WCF and ECF?

not to mention that this team is a complete contrast to the futile teams put on the ice from 98 to the lockout.

Logic = 00000000

If 3/4 teams have something special about them, then the 1 different team is the special one

Well then...history won't be made!

But you're wrong

Rangers: First team to win the Cup solely thanks to luck and refs

Since the current format was adopted in 1994, the only 8th seed to appear in a Western conference (before LA this year) and Stanley Cup Finals is the Edmonton Oilers in 2006. Montreal appeared in the ECF in 2010. Numerous 7th seeds have made the Stanley Cup Finals and none have won the Stanley Cup:
  • 1994 - Vancouver
  • 1999 - Buffalo
  • 2003 - Anaheim
  • 2010 - Philadelphia

Edmonton (2006), Montreal (2010) and LA (2012) are the ones that come to mind for me of 8th seeds who made it to the final 4. I'm sure there has to be more.

New jersey wouldn't be that special. Yeah they are the 6 seed, but they had 102 points in the regular season, Good enough to win two other divisions and tie with Boston in a third division (lose on tiebreak). Is anyone surprised that they are where they are at, or be surprised if they win it all? It more speaks to how incredible the Atlantic division was than being special winning as the 6 seed.

that's a nice stat, but no one will remember it, unlike the 8th seed winning the cup for the first time.

It's a different story if they played 28 games to win though.

The closer the Rangers get, the better these threads get.

Hate to go off topic, but does anyone else get annoyed when someone ends a thread with "discuss"? Shouldn't we be the judges of what's worthy of discussion?

BTW, if the Rangers beat the Devils and then the Kings, would it be the first time a team faced all of the lowest seeds in their own conference (6,7,8) and the lowest seed in the other conference (8) to win the cup?

Here you go, I updated this correctly please change the thread title!


Rangers Win- First team to win the cup after going to game 7 in the first two rounds

How can we forget this stat as it has been etched in stone on this board

Devils Win- Lowest seed to win Championship, also become 8th team with 4 Cups.

Kings Win- Lowest seed to win, also first in team history.

Coyotes Win- First Championship, also become 2nd pro Champion in Arizona history.
