I was watching some archival Stanley Cup footage on NHL Network recently and it was pretty cool.
Got me inspired to make a ROM with nothing but Stanley Cup Winners. I know Slapshot67 did a ROM with the greatest teams of all time, but I would love to create a new rom with weight bug fix and Y-button goalie control.
The other difference will be that this will have nothing but Stanley Cup Champions.
Here's a collaborative list...

'52 Red Wings
'63 Maple Leafs
‘97 Red Wings
One challenge with designing the ROM is that you wouldn't want to repeat teams with the same core star players. For example, I wouldn’t include both the '77 and '78 Canadiens because it's too redundant. However, the ‘56 team with different core players (Richard and Beliveau) would make it.
If anyone’s wondering how I choose specific years when teams won several cups with the same players, my formula was basically to choose whichever team had the better regular season record. I also googled “best hockey teams of all time” when I started making the list. Feel free to make suggestions to improve the list.
If enough people are interested, I'll start a Google Drive spreadsheet for the rosters.
