Since the Montreal Canadiens won their last Stanley Cup in 1993, many Quebecers who lived through the club’s golden years lament that the team has lost much of what once made it special and legendary. It’s hard to deny this, given that the team has reached the Final Four three times in the last 25 years.
The main argument? The club’s cumulative record since the mid-90s. And let’s just say that with the current rebuild, the statistics don’t change in the CH’s favor.
That said, if we calculate the winning percentage, it’s far less impressive. The Tricolore has won just 40.6% (879) of its 1,897 games since then.
However, it’s curious to note that in the top-11 of this ranking, three clubs (Chicago, Tampa Bay and Los Angeles) have combined for half the Stanley Cups won (7/14) since 2010. Understandably, this statistic doesn’t tell the whole story.
However, it’s only slightly better if we look at the statistics for the same period of time, but in the playoffs. With 66 wins and 77 losses, the Habs rank about mid-peloton, and are being chased by the Golden Knights, who already have 54 playoff wins in six seasons.
