After a regular season of 4-3, Montreal defeated the Winnipeg Victorias of the Manitoba Hockey Association. Montreal stopped competing for the Stanley Cup after 1908, as it could not compete against professional teams. The team itself folded in 1932.

3. 1910 Stanley Cup (March 12, 1910)

Answer: Montreal Wanderers

The Montreal Wanderers were founded in 1903 and joined the Federal Amateur Hockey League that same year. For most of its history, the team played its home games at the Montreal Arena in Montreal, QE. Over the next decade, the team would win four Stanley Cups, the last in 1910.

The Wanderers would become a founding member of the National Hockey Association in 1909. After a regular season record of 11-1-0, the Wanderers defeated the Berlin (ON) Dutchmen of the Ontario Professional Hockey League .

The Wanderers would make the jump from the NHA to the NHL but would fold midway through the 1917-18 season when the Montreal Arena burned down. Since the Wanderers had a fan base in the English-speaking community if Montreal, when the Montreal Maroons (a separate franchise) were founded, there was an attempt for them to gain the same fan base.
4. 1912 Stanley Cup (March 11-13, 1912)

Answer: Quebec Bull Dogs

The Quebec Hockey Club was founded in 1878 as an independent amateur team, later becoming the Bulldogs. The team was part of various amateur and professional leagues before joining the NHA in 1910.

The team won the Stanley Cup in 1914 after a 13-7-0 regular season record. (The Staney Cup Finals were played against the Victoria Aristocrats, later the Vougars, of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association.) The other NHA teams would found the NHL in 1917 due to fatigue in dealing with Toronto owner Eddie Livingstone.

The other NHA teams move to the NHL, leaving the Blueshirts in a one-team league.

The Toronto Arena Company would lease the players from the Blueshirts, a move that would lead to the modern Toronto Maple Leafs. The Blueshirts and the Maple Leafs are considered separate franchises, however. The Blueshirts played their home games in Arena Gardens, in Toronto, ON.

7. 1917 Stanley Cup

Answer: Seattle Metropolitans

The Metropolitans were also part of the 1919 Stanley Cup Finals against the Montreal Canadiens that ended inconclusively because of the Influenza Epidemic. When the PCHA folded in 1924, the Metropolitans did likewise with several players joining the Victoria Cougars in their move to the Western Canada Hockey League.
8. 1925 Stanley Cup

Answer: Victoria Cougars

In 1925, the Victoria Cougars became the last team to win the Stanley Cup while not being part of the NHL. (The next year they were the last non-NHL team to appear in the Stanley Cup Finals.) Founded in 1911 as the Victoria Senators, the team was initially part of the PCHA. During its existence, the team had more than one name change (including playin in Spokane, WA, as the Canaries in the 1916-17 season). By 1922, the team was the Victoria Cougars and 1924 it moved to the WCHL (WHL in 1925). For 1924-25, the team had a regular season record of 16-12-0.

The Cougars played their home games in the nearby suburb of Oak Bay, BC. When the WHA disbanded in 1926, many of the Cougars players would become part of the new NHL franchise, the Detroit Cougars (they became the Red Wings in 1932).
9. 1927 Stanley Cup

Answer: Ottawa Senators

In 1927, the Ottawa Senators won their 11th and final Stanley Cup. During the 1926-27 regular season, the team had a record of 30-10-4.

Over the years, the team would change names several times, including the Generals and Silver Seven, before becoming the Senators in 1908.

At the time of the 1927 Cup, the team played its home games at the Ottawa Auditorium of Ottawa, ON. Beginning as an amateur team, the team later turned professional, and later joined the NHL in 1917. Due to financial losses and its place in a smaller market, the Senators spent their final season, 1934-35, in St. Louis, MO, as the Eagles.

At that point, continuing problems forced the team to return its franchise to the NHL and its players to be dispersed. The modern-day Ottawa Senators were founded in 1992.
10. 1935 Stanley Cup

The Montreal Maroons were the last team to win a Stanley Cup and then fold. Founded in 1924, the Maroons would play in the NHL from then until 1938. Though uspending play at that point, the team would not formally fold until 1947. In addition to winning the Stanley Cup in 1935, the Maroons had also won in 1926.
