Arizona Coyotes (Winnipeg Jets), 1979, 36 Seasons
This franchise seems to always be fighting it somehow. It started in Winnipeg in 1979. They were purchased and then relocated to Phoenix from Winnipeg before the start of the 1996-97 regular season. There were talks that they would be moved to Las Vegas, Seattle, and Quebec.
Things seemed to have settled down some and they have the makings of a really good young team with the 7th overall pick in the NHL Entry draft. They appear to have the makings of a good young team in a hurry.
The Coyotes have once made it to the Western Conference Finals in 2012 but have never played in a Stanley Cup Final. As the Winnipeg Jets (1979-1996) they never made it past the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They are on the rise but have a lot of growing up to do. It might take a little while.
