Now that Winnipeg has an NHL team again, there is no way of knowing how long it will be before a Stanley Cup parade takes place. Check out the following table to see how other relocated teams have fared in pro sports.

How to read the table

Final refers to the first time the relocated franchise went to the final after moving, if applicable.

Title refers to the first championship in the new location, if applicable, and the wait indicates the number of years it took to get to the top.

M is for teams that moved to yet another location.

+ is for teams still waiting for a title, as in five-plus years.

X marks the spot for franchises that essentially disbanded.

The asterisk for the San Diego Chargers refers to the fact that they captured an AFL title soon after moving, but as of this date haven't won a Super Bowl.

For simplicity's sake, NBA teams that moved nearby are paired together: Baltimore to Washington (who played in Maryland while under that name), and San Francisco to Oakland.

The Phoenix Coyotes could in the coming months be joining the select ranks of pro sports franchises that have been in three locations. In the NBA, the chain of Buffalo-San Diego-Los Angeles has not led to a championship. So while Clippers fans in L.A. have been waiting a quarter century, the wait for the franchise has been over 40 years.

And ever since the Rochester Royals moved in 1957 just a few years after winning a title, basketball fans in subsequent franchise stops Cincinnati, Kansas City and Sacramento have been left waiting.

In the NHL, however, New Jersey turned the tide on years of futility that stretched back to turns in Kansas City and Colorado.
