The most undeservedly suffering fan base?

There are a number of teams in the NHL which haven't won the Stanley Cup in a long time, if ever. For some, they won't get a lot of sympathy because of negative perceptions from others about what that team is like, or even what their fans are like. I'm not going to give any examples of that, I'm sure you can all think of plenty on your own.

I'm talking about the other side - the fans of the team that just hasn't had much (or any success), and deserves better. Who is it, and why?

I'm voting for the Winnipeg Jets and their fans. Their fans are great, and I don't like how they lost their team for years there. It's a real hockey city in my opinion, and I feel they've deserved better.

I probably say Islanders, because they have no luck whatsoever with players outside Tavares. Everyone seems set on being a dick to them.

Buffalo

A lot of people rag on the city, but the sports fans are unbelievable. Its also worth noting the amount of former players that come back to settle down in Buffalo after their careers are over ( including Bills players too )

HAS to be Toronto. You realize how much the lives of fans have changed since the last time they made the playoffs?

Columbus fans haven't been around long enough to even be close to top of the list.

Any team with a cup is automatically disqualified.

People picking Columbus fans over Leaf fans is what's funny.

stanly cups and got to see "The Great One" lace them up for you, hardly a legitimate argument using the past three years.

The organization wanted that. Now you're the toast of the hockey world as a result of the draft picks from those years. And Oiler fans saw their team in the finals post lockout.
