Regular Season Stats of Cup Champions since 1993 (It's all Important)

I spent some time this morning culling stats of Stanley Cup champions since 1993. What I found out is that it is all important. The PP not so much, however. It is rare indeed when teams that are not good in one major area end up wining the Cup. The most anomalous teams are LA in 12 and 14, Pittsburgh in 08 and Carolina in 06. Most past champions have been complete teams that are good in all areas. Even the Devils had decent seasons offensively.

The reason I did this is to show that the Habs are close, but still need help in one area, offense, to be considered perennial contenders.

2014 L.A. 25 206 1 174 24 15.1 11 83.1
2013 Chi 2 155 1 102 19 16.6 3 87.2
2012 L.A. 29 194 2 179 17 16.9 4 87
2011 Bos 8 246 3 195 20 16.2 16 82.6
2010 Chi 3 271 5 209 16 17.7 5 85
2009 Pitts 4 264 18 239 20 17.2 8 82.7
2008 Det 3 257 1 184 3 20.8 8 84
2007 Ana 6 258 7 208 3 22.3 5 85
2006 Car 3 294 18 260 17 17.9 19 81.8
2004 TBL 3 245 10 192 16 16.3 10 84.8
2003 NJD 14 216 1 166 30 11.9 1 87.9
2002 Det 2 251 3 187 2 20.3 8 86
2001 Col 4 270 3 192 3 22 19 82.7
2000 NJD 2 251 7 203 3 20.1 4 87.5
1999 Dal 8 236 1 168 6 18.8 6 86.5
1998 Det 2 250 7 196 6 17.6 8 86.4
1997 Det 6 253 2 197 7 17.9 4 86.7
1996 Col 2 326 8 240 3 21.3 7 8.8
1995 NJD 14 136 5 121 23 13.4 16 81.2
1994 NYR 4 299 3 231 1 23 3 84.6
1993 Mon 9 326 7 280 16 18.4 10 82

Sorry for the formatting. Not really CPU savy to make it look better. From left to right the stats are GF rank, total goals, GA rank, total goals allowed, PP rank, PP%, PK rank, PK%

Nice. So we're a shoe-in for the Cup.

The only relevant ones are the recent cups and isn't LA a team that was bottom of the goals twice and won the cup? Sorry maybe I'm misunderstanding, it's just that it goes against what you're saying. 2/5 last cups went to a team that was bottom of the league in GF. (You can even say 2/3 if you really want to use the last 3)

I like to look at long term trends. From that I see that most teams, eighty percent, have had an offense in the top ten. You can win without scoring, but history says you need it to win the Cup. A couple of extra goals against NYR last year would have done wonders.

While I agree that we need more scoring and more scoring = good [obviously], I think it is pretty funny that the most immediate example of 'what you need to win a cup' is LA last year and we have more GPG [25th vs 22nd], an equal PP [24th], better PK [11th vs 6th], and the same rank for GAPG [1st].

But yes, generally more scoring is nice and would give us a vastly superior chance. Thanks for compiling the stats regardless.

Yeah...
The funny thing is and it may sound cliche but you can throw all those stats out the window.
How about the actual post season stats showing what the teams accomplished in May and June!
I get the feeling we will see more and more of the LA Kings type of runs from off the pace.
I've gone as far as assuming some teams are now doggin' it for a good part of the season because they know what a load the playoffs are...

No sale here bringing up the Kings. Vastly different system that produced remarkably superior possession stats to ours.

Every other post-07 Cup winner was a strong to dominant possession team, with two caveats: the 09 Pens became a dominant possession team after Bylsma took over. Only the 11 Bruins won the Cup with mediocre possession numbers, and it took Thomas posting a .940 to do it, and winning four elimination games.

We're not just a mediocre possession team, we're an outright bad one. We'd have to buck a lot of odds in order to pull off even an appearance in the final playing like this, never mind winning the darn thing.

What this doesn't measure are the intangibles. We dont have a team like LA, with clutch guys and size where it counts. DD compared to Kopitar... Just not even close.

You'd think we weren't 6 wins away last year with a backup goalie..

We were six wins away, but those six wins are considered a mountain in the NHL playoffs. I do not believe we would have won even with Price in net. The Rangers were the better team with better players in that series. Aside from game 5 and like always, we did not generate any offense in the series.

Stuff happens in sports. It always does, hence the unforeseen injury to Price. I could not predict that happening, so I could not factor that into the equation. What I am saying is that complete teams, or clutch teams, win championships. The Habs are far from this. They will go nowhere with this iteration of this lineup. I hope I am proven wrong, but feel I wont be.
