Nieuwendyk in Rare Company with Latest Win

The Stars’ 1-0 win at Minnesota on Tuesday guaranteed them another winning season (.500 or better). That’s 15-consecutive winning seasons for Dallas (1996-2012), and 16-out-of-18 since the team came to North Texas.

Part of reaching another winning season includes Joe Nieuwendyk becoming only the 32nd NHL GM (of 174 all-time GMs) to guide his team to a .500-or-better record in his first three full seasons as GM, since the league assumed control of the Stanley Cup in 1927-28.

Some interesting stats around this accomplishment:
  • 68% of those other 31 GMs eventually guided their team to the Stanley Cup Finals.
  • 39% of the other 31 GMs eventually guided their team to win the Stanley Cup.
  • Since the 1967 expansion, Nieuwendyk is only the 25th NHL GM to guide his team to a .500-or-better record in his first three full seasons as GM.
  • He is the 8th of the 30 active NHL GMs to guide his team to a .500-or-better record in his first three full seasons as GM. The others are St.Louis GM Doug Armstrong (Dallas), Mike Gillis (Vancouver), Ken Holland (Detroit), Nashville GM David Poile (Washington), Darcy Regier (Buffalo), Ray Shero (Pittsburgh), Wilson (San Jose). Stan Bowman (Chicago) will likely join the list later this season.

These stats and more information on GM’s and their success rates can be found in the book: Behind the Moves: NHL General Managers Tell How Winners are Built. Check out www.nhlgms.com for more.
