Bourque, and I wish LaFontaine won a cup.

Dominik Hasek.

Trevor Linden I'd really hoped for. He scored two bloody goals in a 3-2 Game 7 Stanley Cup Finals loss and the young captain never got anywhere near as close again.

Bourque and Doug Weight. Really wish that Cam Neely, Steve Chiasson, and Arturs Irbe had a won one.

Bourque,Lidstrom,Hasek,Selanne,Robitaille


These 5 I think deserved winning the cup that they would end up getting.

"In the 1952 playoffs he was called up from the minors to be the backup goalie in the finals, but did not play for Detroit. Detroit still put Hall's name on the Stanley Cup, before he had ever played his first NHL game."

Still, although he got his name on the Cup in 1952, Hall didn't really win the Cup that season since he had never played for the Wings at the time.
Hall didn't even know his name was included with the '52 Wings on the Cup until over 50 years later. During the lockout, the HHOF sent the Cup on a "tour" where previous Cup winners would get to spend a day with it. Hall was one of those players:

"Mr. Hall, you know your name is on the Cup elsewhere too, don't you," asked Walt Neubrand of the Hockey Hall of Fame.

"Yes, I was goalie coach for the Flames when they won in 1989, so I've got my name on the Cup twice," replied Hall.

"No, but I mean as a player," continued Neubrand. "You're on the Cup twice as a player. Your name is engraved on the Cup with Detroit in 1952 as well."

"Well how about that! I didn't know that until this second," Glenn said, studying the engraving. Sure enough, there it was. Almost. Glenn started to chuckle. "Look at that they spelled my name wrong. 'Glin Hall.'

I am super glad about Chara, he deserved to win that cup. Thomas and Satan too, classy dudes.

Bourgue - meh. It would have been different if he had won with the Bruins, but he had to be piggybacked by the Avalanche. So like I said, meh.

I would have liked to see Demitra win (

And seeing Matt Cooke win would just make me throw up.

No offence, but why do people keep saying this? Bourque didn't piggyback onto the Avs Cup win. He was one of their best and most important players during that season and playoff run.

Why is Bourque criticized for winning a Cup with another team? Nobody says "Chara's Cup with Boston doesn't mean much because he never won with Ottawa", or "Selanne's Cup with Anaheim was cheap because he never won with Winnipeg".

... Yeah, Bourque played 28 1/2 minutes per game during the Avs' Cup run, and was the second-best defenseman on the team to Blake. And this was after a regular season where Bourque led Colorado in ice time and scored 59 points.

I was glad Bourque won a cup, even if it wasn't the ending I was expecting/wanting.

Lanny McDonald was a good one.

Bourque too, especially with Sakic handing it right over to him.

Andreychuk, Brind'Amour.

I like all those guys that just kept trying and finally made it.
