    Pretty much anyone who's played with the Habs from the 1940s to the 70s. Henri Richard won 11.

    Chris Chelios has two with Detroit and one with Montreal. He obviously played in Chicago as well, but never won.


    So 3 cups on two different original 6 teams, but he played on 3.



    He was about as much a factor in that Stanley Cup win in Detroit as the popcorn vendor. Zero playoff games played and 12 points in 77 regular season games played. Although technically, he does meet the criteria of the thread.

    That's a good question.

    Larry Hillman

    Larry Hillman is the safe answer 1-Det, 2 Toronto and 1 Mont. with three teams. 4 cups / 3 teams.

    Olmstead never played with Detroit in the playoffs.

    2 teams - Red Kelly 8 Cups 4 each Detroit and Toronto. Dick Duff, 6 =2 Toronto / 4 Montreal. Frank Mahovlich 6 = 4 Toronto 2 Montreal. Marcel Pronovost 4 Detroit +1 Toronto = 5

    Others with two teams from memory O6 - Dollard St. Laurent, Ab McDonald,Tod Sloan,Al Arbour, Terry Sawchuk,Ed Litzenberger, Harry Watson.

    Actually...

    Bert Olmstead never played a regular season game for Detroit either.

    http://www.hockey-reference.com/players/o/olmstbe01.html

    In Dec 1950 he was traded from Chicago to Detroit then 17 days later from Detroit to Montreal but he never played a game for Detroit,

    SC credit Oddities.

    Aut Erickson 1 career game with the 1967 Leafs but it was a playoff game in 1967 so he gets a SC credit. Don Awrey played 70+, 1975-76 regular season games with the Canadies but no playoff ganes so no SC credit Likewise Ab McDonald who gets Credit with Montreal for 1959 , none for 1960, then Chicago 1961.

    Evolution

    After Don Awrey in 1976 the process evolved but with injuries, expanding rosters, and other factors there will always be situations that are unique.

    Son Don "Elbows" Awrey's name wasnt engraved on the Stanley Cup in 76?. Thats interesting. I was always under the impression that regardless of the # of games played, playoffs' or not, if you played even one shift on a call-up basis in a regular season game; you were recognized. As hockey is the ultimate "team" sport, I'm not so sure I agree with not recognizing every player who laced them up for a team over the course of a winning season. It could become subjective & arbitrary unless one simply goes with an "only those who played in the playoffs'" standard. Whose to say that team 'X' wouldve made it to playoff's if a call-up in November or whenever didnt contribute, no matter how unimportant or important the role he played may or may not have been?. ;)

    Residue of Logic

    The residue of logic from the Smythe, Selke, Wirtz, Norris, Campbell NHL took a while to clear. Of course your point is very valid but years ago the league leaders came up with various little rules to save a few cents on engraving costs.

    I am not sayin´ L. McDonald won on O6 team, but his SC doesnt count b/c he was pretty much done at that point of career?

    Kopecky is legitimate SC winner.

    Ab McDonald

    Ab McDonald is one of the oddities. He gets SC credit for 1958 even though he played 0 regular season games and only 2 playoff games but he does not get credit for 1960 even though he played during the regular season with the Canadiens but zero playoff games.
