NHL playoffs trivia, Round 1

Here's some quick trivia for those of you priming for playoff pools this week.

Two NHL teams headed to the playoffs have 14 players on their rosters who have won at least one Stanley Cup. One of them is easy: The defending-champion Tampa Bay Lightning.

Who is the other team?

Bonus question: Two teams who have qualified for the playoffs don't have a single roster player with a Stanley Cup ring. Who are they?

I'll guess New Jersey Devils. Brad Lukowich won a Cup with the Lightning, but it counts here!

Wings are next with 11 guys I think.

You are correct — it's New Jersey, who won in 2003. Detroit has 13, by my count, and are second.

Not sure about the numbers for the Wings, so I'll list them here. I was not counting Fischer since he may never come back, but technically he is a member of this team.

Cheli - Yes
Cleary - N
Cross - N
Datsyuk - Y
Draper - y
Fisher - *** Y but he's gone
Franzen - N
Holmstrom - Y
Kronvall - N
Lang - N
Legace - Y
Lidstrom - Y
Lilja - N
MacLean - N
Maltby - Y
Mowers - N
Osgood - Y
Samuelsson - N
Schneider - Y
Shanahan - Y
Williams - Y (okay on the roster, but he was a healthy scratch mostly)
Woolley - N
Yzerman - Y
Zetterberg - N

So technically, you are right with 13. I'll put an asterisk in for Fischer, per above, and Williams was basically an extra roster guy in the '02 campaign. There was no way he could make that team 3 years ago.

Nope. One of those fellows listed has not, in fact, won a Cup.

no cup for Johnson of the Preds. He was traded to pittsburg the year they won it.

Don't know about the rest of the team.
