I have no idea how you have concluded that one Stanley Cup is equal to 3 rings in other sports. That makes zero sense to me, a ring is a ring is a ring.

Because there's so much more balance/competition in the league.

Two of the best players in the world play for the Edmonton Oilers and they are struggling to make the playoffs.

Can't imagine that is common in many other sports. Could you imagine if Michael Jordan was only making the playoffs once a decade? That's hockey in the current era. Pre salary cap it wasn't near as hard.But with a cap structure building up a strong team is brutal.

The Tampa Bay lighting just won back to back cups, but in the year before that they were swept in the first round of the playoffs.

It's more like 1 Super Bowl ring = 10 Stanley Cup rings.

About 2.5 million watch the Stanley Cup finals. Last Sunday's Ohio State vs. Purdue regular college basketball game had almost that many viewers.

Hockey has an avid but comparatively small fan base.

So you think Mark Messier's six Stanley Cup rings are like winning 18 Super Bowl rings?

No.

Just no.

A championship is a championship. A Stanley Cup might be more difficult to win because of the number of playoff games and the intensity of the sport, but teams still win them one at a time.

These kind of answers are always subjective, so I respect your take. But I'll mention that Flacco had one of the greatest quarterback post seasons of all-time in 2012. Over 1100 yards, 11 TDs, and no picks. My opinion, it's the greatest QB playoff run in NFL history..

And incidentally, who was Ken Singletary
