Thanks QM, I was thinking the expansion had happened in the early 60s, and the 6 had continued to dominate. I redact my comment about your arbitrary-ness.

Rangers fan here. I can't STAND the Penguins. They never seem to lose, and when they do it's in OT. I don't mind the Canadiens. They haven't been relevant in while. They need their chance to shine again.

You can rest assured that the rest of the league (at least the teams that were around during the heyday of the Broad Street Bullies) hates the Flyers as well. This is, to my knowledge, unique in the NHL, being irrespective of conference, division, geography, or playoff history.

It's not as bad as it looks. We've come pretty close: 2004 Tampa over Calgary in 7, 2006, Carolina over Edmonton in 7, 2007, Anaheim over Ottawa in 5, 2011 Boston over Vancouver in 7.

I consider it fair play, considering the decades worth of player hoarding that the Canadiens and Leafs were able to get away with prior to elimination of the 50-mile radius rule and the C Form in the late 60s. Up until that point, the sole negotiating rights to every single player coming out of the hockey Mecca that was Greater Toronto and Montreal belonged to the Leafs and Habs, respectively. There were no significant developmental leagues anywhere outside of these two areas, so they basically had a lock on 90% of North American hockey talent for 40+ years. Given the barriers in place, it's not surprising the two teams were able to win 25 of the 42 Stanley Cups during that era. And it's not surprising either that once things were made more equal and talent could be acquired by the rest of the expanding league, they've managed a much more reasonable 10 of 48 (and 0 of the last 22) since.

I didn't realize that system was in place all those years which provides some explanation for all those Cups won by Toronto and Montreal. I guess I should feel fortunate that my Bruins finally broke through for a couple in the early 70s, as well as coming close a few other times during that decade, although the Habs still captured even more in the late 70s. The lack of success by the Bruins against the Canadiens in Stanley Cup playoff games and finals through the history of the NHL up until the mid 80s is actually almost unbelievable. My feelings for the Canadiens have seesawed between rage and admiration for decades. Otherwise, it was nice to see a whole new cadre of Cup winners starting in the early 80s.

As someone who lived through mid 80s and early aughts supporting the Penguins through perennial 5th and 6th place finishes in the division, I can tell you that the Pens losing for a few seasons in a row tends to result in drafting players like Mario Lemieux, Mark Recchi, Jaromir Jagr, Marc-Andre Fleury, Evgeni Malkin, and Sidney Crosby.

Accept "Habs" for Canadiens? VERY common nickname for them, for a VERY long time. Short for Habitants. (though the "H" within the "C" on their jersey logo stands for "Hockey", as in "Club de Hockey", not "Habitants")
