They were winners of their first and only Stanley Cup in the 2003-04 season. Despite a rough patch in the mid-nineties amidst allegations that the team could have been part of a money laundering scheme involving the Japanese mafia, and numerous changes in the management team due to the difficult situation the team was in, the team went through a period of resurgence in the 2001-02 season when NHL assistant, John Tortorella, was appointed the team’s new head coach and Nikolai Khabibulin, then-goaltender for the Phoenix Coyotes, was exchanged for three players and a draft pick which, in addition to some gold-struck acquisitions, caused the team to improve their record considerably. In spite of this, they would also run into some major pending administrative roadblocks that continued to cripple its finances further. The stability has been somewhat consistent since reputed head coach Jon Cooper was brought in in 2013, the team’s eighth head coach in the franchise history.
