Has a Stanley Cup Winning Team Ever Folded or Moved ?

I can't seem to remember, does anybody know if there ever was a city that won a Cup folded or moved ?

This also does not encompass the pre Original Six era.

The Penguins is a city where Lemieux brought them two Stanley Cups, if they are going to -- should the League let them ? That's a lot of history right there.

In the modern era (post-1926), only one team has moved/folded - Montreal Maroons.

And the Ottawa Senators. They won in 1927 before taking a half a centuries hiatus.

back in 95, all that SAVED the devils from moving to nashville was winning the cup.

The Cleveland Barons kinda folded into the Minnesota North Stars line-up. The same Minnesota North Stars that split its line-up to form the San Jose Sharks.

The "modern era" is generally acknowledged to begin in 1943-44, with the introduction of the red line.

After winning the Cup in '95, John McMullen gave it serious thought to move the Devils to Nashville. Must be a weird looking NHL in a parallel universe.
