I've always had a fascination with sports trivia and out of curiosity I looked up the professional sports teams which hold the record for the most consecutive losing seasons for their respective sport. Here is what I found:


MLB

Pittsburgh Pirates 18 losing seasons in a row



NFL

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14 losing seasons in a row



NHL

Couldn't find this data. Maybe one of our Canadian SimHQ members knows this one? smile


NBA

Sacramento Kings 16 losing seasons in a row

Why do they have to be Canadian to know this. biggrin

Okay, I have been a life long NHL fan and I don't know this. Also, I am too lazy right now to Google it. Good question though. Why would I not be surprised if it was the Detroit Red WIngs in the 1970's and 80's. The era of "the Dead Things".

I searched on Google for several minutes and I could find a bunch of stats like most losses in a season or the most GAMES lost in a row but I could not find the most consecutive losing seasons.

No because that webpage shows the longest losing streaks for games. I was looking for which NHL team has the most consecutive losing seasons. Thanks anyway. smile
