The Top Ten

1
Boston Bruins
We are just getting started if you look at the core players so we will be fighting for the top prize for years to come and hopefully we can be as successful as it appears.. Great loyalty, great team prestige and great history.. What more to ask for?
The B's they are always bruins jerseys in the crowd no matter where they are playing
The bruins are the best no doubt about it, even if there is a lot of hate on the b's, everybody knows the bruins are one of the best nhl teams

2Montreal Canadiens
Think about this, really. Six other Canadian arenas, Buffalo, Tampa, Florida, NY, etc. These can all be mistaken for Montreal home games. They seem to have that kind of following.
Visiting Teams Ownership - and the League - thrive in packed venues when the Habs come to town. They generate more visiting team revenue than any other team.
The tradition, the success says it all.

Canada's game the Canadiens are hockey face worldwide.

3Chicago Blackhawks
Original 6 team, new (and finally competent) ownership, exciting and young core both offensively and defensively, and the best uniforms in sports. Commit to the Indian!
One of the teams to make Hockey big in America. The United Center has been sold out for nearly 200 games now and if that doesn't say something about popularity I don't know what does.
2 Championships in 3 years. The face of the NHL for the last few years. Have created so much buzz around the NHL again. If one team can represent the resurgence and face of hockey, it's the BLACKHAWKS!

4Detroit Red Wings
Large fan base. Every road game you seen tons of Red Wings jerseys everywhere.
Original 6 team hailing from a city known as "Hockeytown". Longest active playoff streak in professional sports. A true dynasty, what's not to love?
Those Jerseys are sexy.

5Pittsburgh Penguins
They are #1 In my opinion they have heart and sportsmanship and deserve the #1 spot
Why is this on here? The penguins are the biggest disgrace to the NHL.
Sidney Crosby evgeni malkin are awesome with the rest of the teem

6New York Rangers
A team whos fans hold them accountable for their performance, yet always have their support. New York is a city of hard working people who expect results. Results don't always come in the form of a win, but when a team plays their heart out. This is what the fans love and why they rely on the Rangers to be their passion and obsession!
Why is this team on here there fans are not loyal at all and there team is a bunch of cry babies. I am from New York and I am saying this.
Ranger fans are the most knowledgeable.

7Toronto Maple Leafs
Despite the fact the Leafs haven't had a great team in a very long time, the fan base is probably the largest and most loyal in the NHL. With the Air Canada Centre sold out every night, along with the fact you basically have to inherit season tickets, there is no doubt the Leafs have one of the largest, if not the largest fan base in the entire NHL. The revenue from Leafs merchandise is also a serious indicator of the amount of fans. If you know NHL then you know the Leafs are one of if not the biggest teams in terms of fan base.
Leafs haven't been the greatest but best fan base. I'm not ignorant like these pens fans that say " we have Crosby, enough said " or " best duo Crosby and Malkin " because there not even on the same line laugh out loud. Tml have best fan base ever. No doubt. Every road game there's at least 35% Leafs fans!
If Toronto's not rated as the most popular team then you don't know hockey. Biggest fan base in all of hockey.

8Vancouver Canucks
They boast the support of an immensely passionate fanbase, as evidenced by the numerous Canucks jerseys visible during their road games. They've also have consistently been in the standings' upper tier for the last several reasons; all that remains is for them to at last claim the Stanley Cup.
Best team ever tim thomas sucks while the canucks are 1 in the league
They have the sedin twins and all the other awesome players while the other teams
Are drooling behind go canucks go
The level to which these guys participate in and give back to their community is unparalleled. Few if any teams in any sport place the community demands on their players that the Canucks do. Classy organization.

9Anaheim Ducks
If you don't like Anaheim well then... Duck You! The fans here are die hard unlike the Kings who only come around when they make the playoffs!
Really? Ducks? They rarely sellout unless the Kings or a traditional power from the East are playing. The Kings sellout nearly every game.. That's a fact.
I think the Ducks are great! I see why they were the best team in the league

10Edmonton Oilers
Love the Oilers, yes are really bad but hoping they'll get back into winning soon
They are terrible now. But one day maybe they will make the playoffs again

The Contenders

11Colorado Avalanche
the Avs have awesome players like duchane

A young, exciting team with huge potential, and couple of hall of famers running the team. The Avs are gonna be a consistent threat in the NHL for years to come.

12San Jose Sharks

13Washington Capitals
I live in Virginia and the ONLY (repeat: ONLY) NHL teams that people like here are the Penguins and the Caps. And there are 10 or 20 Caps fans for every Penguins fan. GO CAPS!

14Tampa Bay Lightning
While the same can't really be said about the Rays or the Buccaneers, it is hard to find someone living in the Tampa Bay area who is not a bolts fan
Great team; great owner; great management; incredible arena.

15Calgary Flames
Even though the aren't doing great this season, Calgary is arguably one of the most fan supported teams in the NHL. The hockey world is huge in Calgary, and the flames definitely should be in the top 3 in this list. Go flames go!
My childhood team. Grew up in L. A. , but hated the kings and calgary was a rival in the early 80's. Loved calgary ever since. Got one stanley cup need another. GO FL
AMES!
They use their name as an excuse for Pyrotechnics. How could I not love them?

16Los Angeles Kings
L.A. Kings have become relevant.
Kings I think are really good and I don't think they should be at 25
Kopitar. Carter. Greene.
2012 Stanley Cup.

17Dallas Stars

18New York Islanders
Beloved in staten island. A one of a kind team
Best team in sports history

19Winnipeg Jets

20St. Louis Blues

21Philadelphia Flyers
Best fans, and no one else is known as the toughest, broad street bullies
Our fans are loyal

22Phoenix Coyotes

23Buffalo Sabres
Underrated team nationally. buffalo loves the sabres - we can't get enough here. you can't go out one day and not see someone where buffalo sabres apparel. 6000 fans showed up to the party in the plaza on Easter sunday. id say they're pretty popular.
Typical Boston fan can't spell haha but you see lots of fans at road games. Right now I'm watching them at Nashville and there is mostly sabres fans if you watch them at the panthers you see more sabres fans.
Amazing comeback in '10-'11. First half of the season they were 18-18-5. They finished like I dunno 43-30-9 or whatever. Made 7th seed and almost beat flyers in round 1. Lost only 4 games to 3.

24Atlanta Thrashers
We will be back.

25Ottawa Senators

26Nashville Predators
THEYRE THE BEST! THE ARE 4TH IN THE WEST CONFERENCE RIGHT NOW! AND THEIR NAME AND LOGO AND PLAYERS ARE SO COOL! LOOK AT THEIR GOALIE! PEKKA RINNE! HES SECOND IN THE GOALIES! GO PREDATORS!

27Minnesota Wild
The wild should definitely be in the top five. People in Minnesota eat, sleep and breath hockey and most of your top five only have as many fans as they do because they have recently won the cup
The wild should be in the top five. Minnesota is known as the state of hockey and their fans are extremely loyal and love their team.
The wild should be at least at #3 or up because the fans are respectful of the team and the franchise. And the team is loyal to the fans

28New Jersey Devils
Everybody loves the New Jersey devils in New Jersey. Big rivalry with the New York islanders and rangers
For everybody that lives near NY

29Carolina Hurricanes

30Florida Panthers
Why do so many people hate this team

31Columbus Blue Jackets
A team heading in the right direction
