Guys who deserved a Cup but did not get one.
#1
Fortunately, many of the great players are able to get at least one Cup - I know that I was really happy to see Ovie win last year. Still, there are some really great and classy guys that you always wanted to see hoist the Cup but they never do. For me I would have loved to see Ryan Smyth win one as I always liked they way that he played and he was well known for a lot of his charitable work in the community. This is an easy one for me being an Oilers fan.

The other guy that I would have liked to have seen win was Jerome Iginla (just not with the Flames). I have always thought that he was one of the classiest guys in hockey and a great leader.

Marcel Dionne leaps to mind.

Bure. He played his ass off in '94, but the Rangers were just stacked that year. He played on bad teams the rest of his career, but he would've been a great compliment to any team that would've had him. If he was a Red Wing in 2002 instead of Hull or Robitaille (who signed on specifically just to win a Cup), does anybody really think he would've failed?

Dionne is the obvious one. He is the best player to never win a Cup by a mile. He was a better version of Mark Recchi, who won 3 Cups.

As for a heart and soul guy made for the playoffs, I can't forget how awesome Jarome Iginla was in the 2004 playoffs (and at the Canucks expense). I always wanted to see him win one, even if it was a cheap one. A born leader. Unfortunately for him, he was way past his expiry date when he finally landed on some teams with a good chance to win it.

With Sergei on the team, No way in Hell Bure is a Red Wing.

You either win it or you don't. Nobody "deserves" a cup. Should have won a cup, maybe. Would like to see them win a cup, yes. Deserves, no.

I suppose it is dependant on the wording.
Some players definitely deserved to be surrounded with some better players. That would have at least given them a legitimate opportunity at the cup. 
Look at the names on the cup and I'm sure you can find oh....at least a dozen players who did not have the drive, skill and intensity of a guy like Dionne.

I agree with this but saying that, Ryan Smyth for me. Iginla also comes to mind. (Yes, I just typed that - assuming he did it after he left Calgary Wink )

Had Smytty not requested a trade back to Edmonton when he did, he would've won the Cup with LA that year
