The Top Ten

1
Penguins
sid the kid is so sick! malkin crosby staal fluery talbot and all those guys are to sick! I love sidney crosby. he is the best player to ever live! penguins rule! malkin rules! crosby rules! fluery rules! talbot rule! EVERYBODY ON THE PENGUINS RULES
Not just the premier NHL team of today, but one of the best franchises in hockey. Although, the number of championships are fewer than others, no other franchise can boast the number of all-world stars Pittsburgh deployed. The most popular team in hockey, is certainly deserving to be recognized as one of the best. And probably could be better without all of the injuries they sustained. Lemeiux, Jagr, Francis, Barrasso, Pronovost, Crosby, Malkin, and now Fleury, and the list goes on... What a franchise. Hard to root against the Pens, unless you're from Washington or Philadelphia
Pens rock always will because they are from the steel city!
[Newest]I love the penguins there the best!


2Canadiens
for sure! The Montreal Canadiens have most of the NHL records, legendary hockey players and the loudest fans.
I went to a game L. A kings vs Montreal in L. A and 3/4 of people were Montreal fans...
2500 miles away from Montreal!
won the most stanley cups

coolman

The Habs have been there for 100 years! They have 24 Stanley Cups! They should be number 1 for sure...

habsfan

[Newest]Put them number 1! There way better then the penguins

3Maple Leafs
The leafs are my favourite team and they have been since I was small. Last year they had a playoff spot for the first time since what, 2004. And I feel that they're getting better as being one of the top teams in the east. My most disliked team is the bruins, and I think that a lot of leafs fans are the same way.
Ya right are you on glue the most loyal fans in the NHLyou better look at Montreal who has the best and most loyal by far. ;]no one wants to watch a losing team yes there playing good better than last years but I don't see a cup any time soon it was like 44 years ago wow not good laugh out loud
By far the most loyal fans in the league, any maple leafs game you watch it takes you a minute to figure out if they are at home or not. Also let's not forget the 13 Stanley cups
[Newest]Ya right ask 4 people at least three of them don't like montreal

4Blackhawks
Best start in NHL history now, original six, recent cup winner and they are in the greatest city in the world. LETS GO HAWKS!
I love this team but my brother hates them he likes the Boston Bruins. His favorite player is zdeno chara ugh If I could, I'd kill them both
2 cups in four years best team of this decade no reason for Vancouver to be number 4 and We are coming for Detroit next 30 seasons will be Chicago domination
[Newest]Can not say much about them

5Canucks
Canucks are garbage. "Passionate fans? " more like delusional uneducated people who are the kids who know nothing about hockey. Canucks are the worst Canadian team, I'd say even the oilers are an overall better franchise. Never met a Canucks fan with a bit of sense
Stanley cups comin home.
History WILL be made!
GO CANUCKS GO!
First of all, the Leafs need to be moved out of first (and this is a Leafs fan talking! ). However, they are still the best. They dominated the regular season and playoffs and, despite losing the final, were still the best overall.

Blueyays


6Red Wings
Excuse me, but do the eleven cups mean anything to you? Or how about the 6 presidents trophies, or the winningest season ever, or the four cups in 13 years, or the fourth greatest player of all time, or the second greatest defenseman of all time, or the only coach in the triple gold club, not to mention more players in the triple gold club than anybody, and the greatest captain of all time. At the very LEAST they should be ranked number three behind the Canadiens and the Leafs, and not behind a team that hasn't even won a CUP!
Everyone said they couldn't beat the Blackhawks but they did. 3 times. And who knows about tonight! They have sold out their stadium over 94 times in a row! 11 Stanley cups! In my opinion the best team ever.
Red and White Jersey's everywhere in every away game crowd. Detroit makes teams like Phoenix and Atlanta sell out their arena's for the few times a year they play them.
[Newest]Are you kidding me. The wings are by far the most popular team in hockey and has one of the best owners in any professional sport. Just take a look at the sea of red Jerseys at an away game!

7Bruins
Canadiens #1? The bruins are putting up historical numbers as a team this year. Whoever made this list is obviously a Canadiens fan. I'm a Canadiens fan. I hate the Bruins but there is no denying that they are the best team in the NHL. Canadiens are having a terrible year this year, almost worst in the NHL. Bruins are coming off of a Stanley Cup victory (they beat the Canadiens on the way there) and they look as strong as ever. Don't relly understand why people just can't be honest when they vote.
You have got to be kidding me?! The bruins should be right at the top at #1! Bruins are the best. Period. You know why everybody hates new england sports, because new england sports are way better than anything else! Don't try to deny it! PATRIOTS, RED SOX, AND BRUINS ALL THE WAY!
The bruins are the best team this year by far yes I'm a bruins fan but to be honest they are the favorite for the cup this year and so what the canadiens have the most cups they happened long ago and it was a different game then
[Newest]We are #7 you gotta be kidding 2 cup runs in the past 4 years. This team is an original six team with history. Cam Neely, Bobby Orr, and Ray Bourque are examples of great players who were superstars.

8Kings
Go kings pull it through and you will win the Stanley cup go Dustin Brown
They won their first two Stanley cups in less then four years. Let's go kings!
I think Anze Kopitar is just awesome do you see his passes leads kings in goals I think he's awesome Anze! Anze!
[newest]
Should be way higher

9Ducks
Well, The Mighty Ducks was a good movie...

10Rangers
I love you, rangers
They are good with Lundqvist
Lthey are my life

The Contenders

11Sharks
One day they will be a stanley cup winning team

CoolCat999

The best team in the whole world! LETS GO SHARKS!
I don't really need to say much. although they do choke in the playoffs, the are one of the best teams in the regular season.

12Oilers
5 cups in 7 years, 3 league titles, and some of the greatest NHL players of all time, such as Wayne Gretzky, Jari Kurri and Mark Messier to say a few. They also have a loyal fan base even when times are low like from 2007-2011.
Home of 99 Wayne Gretzky
The oilers will make a come back well be the team to bring the cup back to Canada. Just wait NHL

13Senators
amazing team 18 years 12 playoff appearances very good leafs suck sens are the best team in ontario although most fans are leaf fans go sens go
Great team from the capital city of the capital of ice-hockey: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada!
The Sens are the best team ever. Unlike the maple leafs who haven't won a stanley cup in about 20 years. At least Ottawa has been to the cup finals. Maple leafs more like maple losers.
[newest]
I think that sens will win

14Avalanche
In one year they have gone from 29-30th in the league to being a force to be reckoned with, like they were in the first bunch of seasons after moving to Colorado. Patrick Roy forever!
even thoe they stunk I still gotta be a fan
They got a new Coach and they got players like Seymon Varlamov and Gabriel LandeSkog and Matt Duchene, Hejduk and more

15Flames
Let's go Max Pacoreitty!

16Devils
martin brodeur is the best goalie ever! who would ever vote toronto! NEW JERSEY RRRRRRRRRUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS

gunsnroses44

OH come on at least we won the cup canucks haven't yet!
Count the Cups. That's all that matters. Obviously the Habs are #1, but the Devils should be 10 or 11. There is no other measurement in hockey success.

17Blues
The Blues may not have won the cup yet, but they've lead the league 1 year and this year, too. The Blues actully made it to the Stanley Cup Finals their 1ST THREE YEARS! Blues rock, they also had Wayne Gretzky and Brett Hull once and were this close to beating the Redwings in the playoffs!
The great one doesn't count as being a blue... The ownership lost him and brett... But I still remain a true bleeder of the blue note. We will taste the cup soon.
Haven't won the Stanley Cup, but one of the most consistent teams. Have been to the playoffs almost all the years they have existed.

18Flyers
flyers arethe best they are a physical beast that has punished their oppenents from the begining of their exsistence they were the first expanshion team to win lord stanleys cup and it only took 6 years the cup is coming back to philly were it truley belongs broad street bullies for life
They are always competitive every year. They consistently make appearances in the post season. Plus they display tremendous heart on the ice, not to mention depth at all positions.
flyers rule! maple leaves stink and they haven't done anything for years flyers should be number 1 there the best and they went to the stanley cup

19Capitals
Go Caps! They are rising up through the ranks in the NHL very quickly, and are a huge contender for the Stanley Cup. With Ovechkin and Backstrom, they can dominate the NHL, which they already are.
I'm a caps fan but I know that we are not one of the best teams in the league anymore. We had our shot at a cup and blew it. I do think the new coach and defensive core will help us make a playoff push
Your joking caps r # 1 way better than the leafs and I'm from Toronto

20Jets
The jets have hands down the most passionate fans in the league. They are the classic story of I will see you again.
Weak. They're the latest team. Epic fail.
Definitely the most underrated team in the chel! No one hates the jets! Fart all over those canadiens

21Wild
They have Zach parise
Nickolis backstrom
Mikko kuivo
Ryan suter
Enough said
Whild r not better then ilanders or huricans lighting and stars. reason they actaully have the cup. ils have 4 or 5. just because some of them are bad now still they have the cup.

22Lightning
At least they have a cup. Unlike other teams on this list. This is from a ranger fan.
They have a sick roster with lots of potential to win or go far
They beat a lot of teams ahead of them on this list.

23Coyotes

24Blue Jackets

25Hurricanes
At least they won the cup (2004). Unlike other teams that are lower here. This from a ranger fan.
ERIC STAAL ON THE CAROLINA HURRICANES IS A GREAT PLAYER. I AM GLAD HE IS ON THE TEAM.

26Islanders
34! The islanders have won 4 straight stanley cups and won 19 playoff series in a row! Should be in top 15

BillyTheSportsGuy

19 Straight Playoff Series Wins: a record that will never be broken!
islanders should bee at the top they beet the penguins. and got the stanley cup 4 years running!
[Newest]THey won four years running they should be in like the top 5!

27Panthers
Well they are somewhat rebuilding in 2 more years they may be able to be championship contenders

28Sabres
I think the Sabres are pretty good! But that's probably because. Live in buffalo! That's just my opinion!
I have a song 'bout the Buffalo Sabres: GO SABRES GO! BUFF-A-LO! Come on Move! HURRAY! GO SABRES GO! BUFF-A-LO! You're gonna win to-dayy! GO SABRES GO! BUFF-A-LO! Gonna Win The Cup Todayy! GO SABRES GO! BUFF-A-LO! Drinking from the Cup todayy! HURRAY! Its called "Go Sabres Go! "
They really do suck. But wait they r not I mean r not better then stars. The stars won the cup in 1999. In matter in fact it was a good goal and it was against the sabres. Whach the video on YouTube it explains how it was goal.

29Predators

30North Stars
One of the longest surviving expansion teams to fold.
A old team. WHAT!

katiepery

A old team. WHAT!

katiepery


31Stars
They have a cup unlike the team at number 5.

32Barons
Aren't they part of the AHL?

33Nordiques
Don't vote for them. Colorado is the new Nordiques. That's where you're supposed to vote.
Don't tell where to vote. I like the Nordiques, not the Avalanche

34Golden Seals
Golden seals are good and everyone says their bad but they just had good opponents and they have a cute name... SEALS

35Thrashers

36Whalers
They Have a cool logo...
