Top 10 NHL Teams


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Jets Jets The New York Jets are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

After a great regular season for the jets, in the playoffs they would feature a performance that failed to impress. They were swept by the favored Ducks. Still, you can't expect a team with almost an entire playoff inexperienced roster to make much noise. That being said, this is the season that made them good. What they have now is a skilled roster, that now has some experience under their belt. This season, if you're in the west, they're a team to keep your eye on. Expect round two at the very least next season. They may even go to the conference final.

Weak. They're the latest team. Epic fail.

Umm actually they were an existing team before ( Before 2000). They were brought back after the Atlanta Thrashers became defunct. I'm just saying... - MusicalPony

This is about hockey not football retards.

This is a football team

22 Lightning

I was born in Tampa, so was my brother and other lightning fans I know. We aren't fake fans, and we are in love with the game of hockey. I've been a fan since I was a baby. Hockey is big in Tampa. Unless you live in Tampa you wouldn't know. The lightning are a great team and we have a lot potential to win the cup years to come. We are one of the better teams and this list is bull. Flames are trash so not sure why they are ahead of us. We beat them in 2004 and we make to the playoffs. They don't. How's that for Florida?

You only say that this team is better than the flames because you are jealous that the flames are hockey country. Besides if you think think this team is better than the Flames then screw you. You don't know what you are talking about. Unless you live In Tampa bay then I would understand why you like this team more then the Flames

Don't underestimate Tampa, the fans are one of the most passionate fans I've ever seen. Take it from me, I know.

Realistically top 10 maybe top 5 if we're just talking about recent success. But this list is biased as usual.

23 Capitals

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

Amazing team

Shea Weber is an amazing CAPTAIN because he hits awesome and scores awesome!

Perks is the best goalie and the Preds are the best team.

An incredible team, should be in the top 10. Very great players and fans! Surprised they aren't higher!

Canadian team so yeah I guess

I hate predators

How many teams loose their no1 center and in their first 5 games since scheiffle was hurt gain 9 out of a possible 10 points! Depth on this team is the best we have seen yet! A Jets fan and friend of Bobby Hull for 45 yrs.

32 Nashville Predators Nashville Predators The Nashville Predators are a professional ice hockey team based in Nashville, Tennessee. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

I'm picking them to win this year(2017) I think we should start voting for them a bit! - TheHabsFan

Decent team, now have Souban. Hope for the best.

33 Atlanta Flames Atlanta Flames

The Calgary poops are worse

They sucked and I'm just bringing irony in this


34 Scouts

The Scouts were an NHL team that played in Kansas City in the 70's for two season until the moved to Colorado to become the Rockies. Later, they moved in the 80's to become the New Jersey Devils.

Who the heck are the scouts? Some junior team. They shouldn't be on the list - TheHabsFan
