Most games with least playoff appearances.

I ran into a strange number yesterday and felt sad. Olli Jokinen has played 1169 and only 6 playoff games in the entire career. That got me thinking surely there's someone who has played more regular season games, but with fewer playoff appearances.

Couldn't find the answer with forum search, so most career regular season games, with the least amount of playoff appearances?. Propably some goalie leads this stat

(at least oj is a solid 0.80ppg in playoffs overperformer)

Guy Charron played 734 regular season games, but zero playoff games.

I don't know, but didn't the Panthers miss the playoffs for 10 years straight years very recently? Was there a rookie on the team in 2001 who stayed there for years?

Also, the Bruins had a very long spell of missing the playoffs in the pre-Orr era.

Guy Charron was the first name that popped to mind when I saw this thread.

Among active NHLers, Bryan Little (486 GP), Tobias Enström (484) and Sam Gagner (481) still haven't played in the playoffs...

All are losers so it's not just a coincidence, that's for sure.

I just had a mental image of the folks at Radio Canada having a discussion, years ago, about who to hire to provide commentary during the NHL playoffs. Someone mentions the name Guy Charron, and someone else replies: "what does he know about playoff hockey?"

As Jed Clampett would say: "Pitiful."

jiri hrdina must be pretty high on the opposite list: least games with most playoff appearances. 250 RS games (basically 4 seasons, never appearing in more than 70 games in any); 48 playoff games and three stanley cup rings (albeit, the first one as a bit part).

And topping them all, Ladislav Smid at 530 games.

Poor Guy?

After some considerable thought, I've come to the conclusion that Guy Charron did benefit from his trade away from Montreal. His trade to Detroit, along with Mickey Redmond and Bill Collins - during the 1970-71 season - for "The Big 'M'" provided him with ice time he never would have enjoyed with the Canadiens. There was some talent at center/centre ahead of him.

Charron eventually put up some impressive numbers with the Wings, and especially later with the Scouts and the Caps. As a top line player in Kansas City and Washington - with the WHA in business - Guy would have earned a pretty decent paycheque. Much more than he would have earned as a part-time player in Montreal.

Basically, that first trade cost Charron some bling, but did wonders for his bank account.

There were a lot of players in that same boat at the time. Charron, Andre Boudrias, Christian Bordeleau, Danny Grant, Red Berenson. Even in the 70s, guys like John Van Boxmeer, Dave Gardner, Chuck Arnason and Chuck Lefley. No Hall of Famers, but guys who did go on to other teams which gave them more ice time and longer careers. And a bit of stardom for some.
