Top 10 NHL TeamsDileas
The Top TenXW
Best start in NHL history now, original six, recent cup winner and they are in the greatest city in the world. LETS GO HAWKS!
The blackhawks are the best, they have some of the top 10 best NHL players right now. Anyways They are even better then the penguins and the capitals and the Canadians never mind they are the BEST TEAM EVER!
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
They are worth lotsV69 Comments
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!
The Habs have been there for 100 years! They have 24 Stanley Cups! They should be number 1 for sure... - habsfan
The Montreal Canadiens are the most original teams of the NHL. Penguins aren't even an original six team and just because they have Sidney Crosby doesn't mean their the best
Because I love canadiens and they have 23 stanley cup titles.V59 Comments
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
The canadiens should be first but the penguins deserve to be second there my favorite team best team in the nhl Sid The Kid Jordan Staal Fleury Murray Malkin Talbot So Many Players Who Put In Effort
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
They won the Stanley cup in 2016V65 Comments
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.
Red Wings are cool - StroboV36 Comments
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.
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.
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
I am a bruins fan and I know there a great team and they deserve to be first. This person needs to check there factsV38 Comments
canucks are going to win the stanley cup because of luongo, sedin twin's, burrows and kesler
Most passionate fans ever in the most beautiful city of the world!
They will succeed next year!
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
Everybody on the canucks are awesome especially the Sedin boysV48 Comments
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.
Maple leafs are good because of there position true Canadiens won the most cups but they have to work on there plays especially for their goalie to me it all matters about the plays you must do and Toronto does that so good job Toronto
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
The leafs are the bestV27 Comments
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!
Wayne Gretzky? Useful! Drew Doughty? Useful! Dustin Brown? Useful!
Come on we can get to the top come onV21 Comments
How are the leafs and bruins ahead of the rangers? The rangers have been to the conference final three times in the past 4 years. Love them, hate them, they're an awesome team. A rangers cup is bound to happen in the next 5 years. I'm willing to bet on it.
Rangers are a pretty good team but yesterday they lost the edmonton oilers 5 7 that is bad today they are playing with calgary flames
The Rangers are a classic team and were the first American team to win the cup. We also have the coolest logo because it is very simple which is good.
Love the RangersV18 Comments
Ducks have the best fanbase of any NHL team that wasn't apart of the original 6. They deserve to move up on this list.
If you like the ducks then screw you. Also duck you LOL.
Well, The Mighty Ducks was a good movie...
What does the duck say - Donald DuckV6 Comments
An incredible team, should be in the top 10. Very great players and fans! Surprised they aren't higher!V1 Comment
The Oilers should always be remembered for the amazing decade they had in the '80's. An expansion team that were able to put a stop to the Islanders dynasty and build one of their own. Never again will a team be put together like that.
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.
5 cups in seven years + some of the greatest NHL players of all time. And, please, wait...
Best nhl teams of all time HELL YEAH!V11 Comments
They are one of the best teams. They make it to the playoffs every single year and this year they were so close to winning the Stanley cup.
One day they will be a stanley cup winning team - CoolCat999
The best team in the whole world! LETS GO SHARKS!
Sharks are the best!V10 Comments
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 fanV2 Comments
How are the Rangers ahead of the Devils. They haven't won the cup since 1994 and before that 1940. Sure the Devils have struggled as of late but the Devils have been around for only 30 years and the rags have been around for 90 years and only 4 stanley cups. New Jersey won three stanley cups in the thirty years they've been around and they are still going to win stanley cups from years to come!
Lets see, 3 Stanley Cups, 5 Eastern Conference Championships, 9 Atlantic Division wins, and last but not least, MARTY BRODEUR, GREATEST GOALIE TO EVER PLAY THE GAME!
OH come on at least we won the cup canucks haven't yet!
Flames aren'tV4 Comments
Great team from the capital city of the capital of ice-hockey: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada!
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
No matter the fact if they don't have as many fans as montreal and toronto the sens always will be my team
Yes. It is on this list.V10 Comments
We all Bleed Blue! The Blues may not have the best chance at winning the cups, but they still have some of the best players around, with one of the best chances at getting into the playoffs, and being ranked high in the Stanley cup playoffs. Look at their first three years, I mean, Rookie team making it into the playoffs every single year like that? A feat no severed Indian head wearer will understand.
The Blues goal horn; One of the best in the league. It is easily the most diverse and underappreciated goal horn out there. The organs, which, unlike the rest, are just that; Organs. There is no singing (Could be, but there isn't), while the other teams, Blackhawks, Panthers, Stars, etc, all have singing and the most generic goal horn out there. It is amazing when you get those three blasts and then the Blues supporting organs.
The Players; We have had many people, including Wayne Gretzky, Brett Hull, and Bernie Ferderko. Some of the best players (And one that is the best) ...more
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.
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!
They are the best they should be second in this list of the best teams in the nhlV6 Comments
Flames are much better the position they hold right now.
Flames suck, franchise- only one Stanley cup, Oilers have 5, players suck and they win of luck. Flames stink.
They have a good fan base, and many potential star athletes, but they are not gaining a lead in anything.
Flames are the coolest team! And I like them too!V12 Comments
Islanders are amazing, they should be in the top 5 at least! Rangers suck, they didn't even get in the 2nd round of the playoffs this year, they should be replacing the Islanders in 20th place! islanders on the other hand beat an amazing panthers team in the best of 7 series in the first round of the playoffs so they are going into the second round unlike Rangers!
Well the islanders aren't the only team to win the cup 4 years in a row the Canadians have won it 4 years in a row but they have done 4 time and I'm not a Canadian fan or a islanders fan I'm a canucks fan
34! The islanders have won 4 straight stanley cups and won 19 playoff series in a row! Should be in top 15 - BillyTheSportsGuy
The islanders suck.V19 Comments
Minnesota is the largest producer of American NHL players. Hockey is to Minnesota what football is to Texas. The 1980 Miracle on Ice, 70% Minnesota born players. Minnesota is long overdue to host a cup. Look at the roster of your favorite team, chances are that more than one of the key players is a Minnesota native. Those who have grown up in the State of Minnesota understand why it IS the State of Hockey. We were robbed of our heritage when the North Stars were moved to Texas and won the cup shortly after. Our time is coming, and we can all shed a tear of joy when we finally get the much deserved banner hosted into the Xcel Enegy Center in St. Paul.
The wild are the Minnesota North stars
Yo I'm from MN so I was born a Wild fan, but you've gotta admit, there pretty awesome!
Isles have won 4 in 1980-1990V6 Comments
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
How are the bullies ranked this low? Probably because most fans don't need to broadcast that the team is the best: we just know it. Unlike other teams, such as Pittsburgh and Chicago, Philly doesn't have any pussies. Go Flyers!
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.
This year Stanley cupV6 Comments
