Roman Hamrlik | 1,311 games
The first-ever draft selection of the Lightning in 1992, the 37-year-old defenseman has yet to play in a Stanley Cup finals, let alone hoist the chalice. In fact, Hamrlik did not even play in a conference finals until last spring when his Canadiens lost to the Flyers.
Bryan McCabe | 1,135 games
Until he played for the Rangers in this year's opening round, McCabe had yet to suit up in the postseson since the lockout. Like Hamrlik, he has not played in a Cup finals, with the closest he came being a conference finals appearance with Toronto in 2002.
Shane Doan | 1,119 games
Win the Cup? Unfortunately, the 34-year-old, 15-season vet has yet to experience being on the winning side of a post-series handshake. Doan and the Jets/Coyotes have been on the losing side of all eight opening-round series in which he has participated.
Radek Dvorak | 1,118 games
The 10th-overall pick in the 1995 draft has played 15 seasons and experienced the playoffs only four times. Two of those occasions he skated in the Stanley Cup finals -- Florida in '96 and Edmonton in '06 -- but there was no sipping from Lord Stanley.
Jarome Iginla | 1,106 games
The 1,000-point scorer has gotten past the first round once in a career that began in the 1996 playoffs. At least in 2004 Iginla and the Flames surged to the Stanley Cup finals where they bowed to the Lightning in seven games. (Ironically, Tampa Bay's Dave Andreychuk became the oldest player in NHL history, at 40 years and 7 months, to make his Cup finals debut that year.)
Ryan Smyth | 1,069 games
Smyth is no stranger to the postseason having made it 11 times with four different teams. Only once, however, has his club gotten past the second round. That was 2006 when Edmonton lost to Carolina in seven games.
Michael Grier | 1,060 games
An NCAA champ with Boston University in 1995, Grier has had no such luck at the game's highest level. He has played in more than 100 playoff games, but never has made it to the Cup round let alone experience the glory of winning it all.
Daniel Alfredsson | 1,056 games
The 38-year-old Swede has spent his entire NHL career in the Canadian capital, but has been unable to bring a Stanley Cup to Ottawa. Alfredsson and the Sens made it to the finals in 2007 when they lost to Anaheim in five games.
Patrick Marleau | 1,035 Games
If there is a sentimental favorite this season, Marleau is it. He and the Sharks are in their third conference finals; they were turned away by Chicago last year and Calgary in 2004. Marleau, who has experienced postseason play in 12 of his 13 years with San Jose, is the team's all-time leader in regular season and playoff games.
Andrew Brunette | 1,032 games
Brunette split the 1997-98 season between the Capitals and Portland (AHL), but he did not appear in the postseason with Washington, which lost to Detroit in its lone Cup finals to date. The furthest he has gone in the playoffs was the 2003 Western Conference finals with Minnesota.
