Prolly similar to Montreal and the Habs, Boston and the Red Sox, and the other storied franchises in sports and their respective cities. Nice to think we has something special like that, eh?
Maybe each of my fingers is an undulating shrimp! It's a world of possibilities.

Wonder if they would have won in 98' had vladdy not been in that car crash?
The answer is yes.
Konstantinov was the league's best defenseman. He would be replacing Bob Rouse on this hypothetical roster, assuming no other changes. The team without him was Cup-capable even without Vladdy and without the motivation to win it for Vladdy. Having Vladdy instead of Rouse would have more than covered that difference.
Even better; Imagine Konstantinov wasn't in his crash, Grigorenko wasn't in his, and Fischer didn't have heart issues. We still draft Fischer and Kronwall...Lidstrom and Konstantinov handing off the reins to Fischer and Kronwall? Grigorenko was Ovechkin-level when he was drafted, and then in a car crash he shattered his femur and nearly died from an embolism.
Scary roster... in a good way.

I suppose that someone will want to add an asterisk* to this stat, to somehow or another, make it less of an acomplishment.
