St. Louis Blues, 1967, 48 Seasons
Wow, almost 50 years with no Stanley Cup. What do you tell your fans about that? They started in 1967 when they were one of six teams added to the Original Six. They were in a division with those expansion teams and made it to the Stanley Cup Finals their three first years in existence. That’s it…never again.
They have been an amazingly consistent team. They’ve been in the playoffs all but eight of their 48 seasons for an 83% clip of making the playoffs. They were in the playoffs for 25 straight years at one point and have been President’s Trophy winners but cannot get back to the Stanley Cup Finals.

They have one of the most balanced teams in the league right now, with young Vladimir Tarasenko one of their many stars.

They definitely have a chance of jumping off this list soon but how do you fight 48 years of futility?
