The Vegas Golden Knights just won their first Stanley Cup in franchise history, doing so in their sixth year of existence in the NHL.
If you are a fan of a team that has not yet won a Stanley Cup, you are probably salty since you have had to wait so long in comparison, which is the case for Nashville Predators fans.
They seemed to be chasing their sudden 2017 Stanley Cup run up until this season, which crazily enough happened the year before the Golden Knights were in existence. So watching the Predators fight and fail to even make it past the second round while the Golden Knights win their first Stanley Cup so fast hurts for fans like myself.
As tough as it was to watch for people in Nashville, there are fans of teams who have not only existed for much longer, but they come from traditional hockey markets. So if you are a fan of one of those teams, you are probably more than just salty right now.
But all of this begs the question — which teams that have not yet won a Stanley Cup are closest to doing so?
There are five teams that look closer to it than the other six, but even still, few of them are particularly close at this point in time.
