Almost every season, the Stanley Cup Finals feature at least one veteran player who hockey fans across the country are pulling for, even if he isn't a member of the team they happen to be cheering for.  

Two perfect examples of players like this are Ray Bourque and Dave Andreychuk, as they each played over 20 seasons in the National Hockey League before finally hoisting the Stanley Cup and retired directly afterward.  

It isn't just that these two All-Stars went so long without winning as much as it is that they were such well-liked and respected players, and competed with such fire and tenacity until their final games.  

There are a number of players around today who deserve to win a Stanley Cup before their careers end, but may never get the opportunity because they don't suit up for clubs that are expected to contend in the near future.  

Like Andreychuk and Bourque, if veterans like this want to finally hoist hockey's ultimate prize, they may need to switch addresses for that to be possible.  

So, without further ado, here are seven of hockey's 'good guys' who deserve a shot at a Stanley Cup before their careers come to an end, but will need a change of scenery in order to do so.
