Top 10 Worst NHL Teams

Awful NHL teams that have only fans from that area.

The Top Ten

1 Florida Panthers Florida Panthers The Florida Panthers are an American professional ice hockey team based in the Miami metropolitan area.

once I went to a panthers game and out of the 12,000 people there most wore tampa bay gear, AND THE LIGHTNING WERENT EVEN IN THE GAME? please move the team it deserves to be in europe more for crying out loud

They suck so much it's depressing, what a mistake from Gary Bettman. Go Habs Go!

Why the panthers suck.

#1 what the hell does a panther have to do with the nhl?

#2 they're from Florida dude.

#3 tampa and Florida is the same place. And part of the state and country. They're both from Florida. So I do not know how a tampa fan can dislike the panthers.

#4 nobody down there knows a living about hockey. Maybe field hockey but not ice hockey.

#5 they are a retarded mistake by gary bettman.

#6 people in Florida only know about football. They only know about the NFL not the NHL.

#7 hockey does not belong there. Hockey belongs up in edmonton calgary vancouever minnisota and Colorado.

#8 why in the living OH-MY GOD! Does B.C have 1 team but Florida has 2 when the panthers don't know about hockey and do not give a flying crap.

And yeah. The panthers and the lightning are a stupid mistake. Case dismissed.

Florida is actually good now though - KrizChin

2 Columbus Blue Jackets Columbus Blue Jackets

They suck hard. enough said I think. Just wonder how much does the winning games cost.

Bad coaches, bad front office, bad fan base. COMPETING with Ohio State athletics= loosing proposition.

No success over the years. Don't think they're ever going to make the playoffs this decade. - Canuck101

Their Winning Streak recently was unreal...coming from a habs fan

3 Edmonton Oilers Edmonton Oilers The Edmonton Oilers are a professional ice hockey team based in Edmonton, Alberta. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

Most embarrassing team in last ten years got lucky in 05 with Rollie standing on his head like no other while getting outplayed outshot like 55-10 almost every game what a joke!

I'm from Edmonton and they are so horrible, yet we still like them. They have a great team with great players but they need to get it together.

What is wrong with u people the 2nd best hockey player of all time played for this team 1st is bobby orr

They're logo reminds me of flame boiler

4 Phoenix Coyotes

They were awesome when they were the Jets and everyone in Winnipeg still liked them, but they moved for no reason?

I hate them! worst team ever! they live in the desert for goodness sake! they may be talented but they are terrible! - 2234

This is me to the sunbelt teams: Guy: God I'm so warm. Other Guy: than go in that hockey rink.

Terrible team in hockey

5 Toronto Maple Leafs Toronto Maple Leafs The Toronto Maple Leafs are a Canadian professional ice hockey team based in Toronto, Ontario, that competes in the National Hockey League.

An AWFUL team, they just flat out suck. Thanks for Seguin and Rask by the way. I hope Kessel was worth it :) P. S The old Winnipeg Jets were sold because they had economy issues, not for no reason whatsoever

Once I was at a Caps home game and they were playing Toronto. I spotted for Toronto fans, and guess how many I found? 2. Just 2. One was the guy above us, and I could tell that he hated the Caps. ( I'm a Caps fan by the way.) Anyway, in the game, Toronto just cared about winning. They couldn't care less about penalties. I think the Caps had about 9 powerplays. They even had a 2- man advantage. That's how bad the Leafs are.

Terrible trades. They trade Seguin and Rask to Boston and get Kessel and they trade Kessel to Pittsburgh a few years later anyway and in Kessel's first year in Pittsburgh, they win a Cup? Thanks a lot Toronto.

Who cares if leafs have not won the cup since 67 it's not like the last time canada won the cup was 67.

6 Calgary Flames Calgary Flames The Calgary Flames are a professional ice hockey team based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The Flames are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

The guy that said they should get kicked out makes my blood boil. If you hate them think they should be banished forever then go go hell.

If anyone hates this team then I think you are a florida or tampa fan.

Hate them. They have the worst fan base ever and They just play dirty. Wish they could be kicked out of the NHL and banished forever.

Man your just not thinking straight apparently... You must be an oilers fan and oilers should be kicked because they never get anywhere and they steal all of the first round picks - TheHabsFan

Better then the god damn flyers.

7 New York Islanders New York Islanders

If New York gets two teams I want Vancouver to get two teams in fact why doesn't every city get 2 teams for the NHL?

I love the rangers, but two teams in the same city? No...

1. Off their our 3 teams in New York State 2. Off both Rangers and islanders have won 4 cups each,but Rangers have been in since1926 and islanders, sometime in the 70s. In my conclusion the rangers are way worse

Not many teams could say that they have won 4 cups in a row, and 19 playoff series (which is still an NHL record). Also, the isles are home to great players such as Mike Bossy, Brian Trottier, Clark Gillies, Dennis Potvin, John Tavares, Pierre Turgeon, Ray Ferraro, Pat Lafontaine, and many more. Should be #30 not #7.

8 Pittsburgh Penguins Pittsburgh Penguins The Pittsburgh Penguins are an American professional ice hockey team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, that competes in the National Hockey League.

They are horrible what a stupid name all the players do is waddle

Pens are the best

Penguins are best. Just because they have won only 3 stanley cups doesn't mean the suck - ifgy

9 Tampa Bay Lightning Tampa Bay Lightning

They won the cup. And they won the Eastern Conference twice. This should be #18 on the list - DoroExploro13

Tamp doesn't belong here! They're good! The devils belong here!

10 Boston Bruins Boston Bruins The Boston Bruins are a professional ice hockey team based in Boston, Massachusetts. The Bruins compete in the National Hockey League as a member club of the league's Eastern Conference Atlantic Division.

The bruins are really bad just because they won the cup 6 times does not mean they are good.

Bruins suck and their fans are racist if the go to the Stanley cup again don't go for them.

I can not look they are horrible lost 2016 winter classics 5-1 to the Montreal Canadiens

Hypocraite team

The Contenders

11 Winnipeg Jets Winnipeg Jets The Winnipeg Jets are a professional ice hockey team based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

I know they have only been in winnipeg for 3 years but in those seasons they have never been in the playoffs - CoolCat999

They will never be good. No chance they'll make the playoffs anytime soon.

Jets will win cup in 10 years cause of Atlanta curse

They made the playoffs last year and they willl do it again they are playing great this year 15/16 GO JETS GO

12 New Jersey Devils New Jersey Devils

A no hit no spirit team. They need a leader with passion. Passing up Lemieux in the draft will come back to haunt them. Bob

There good what is wrong with you guys they are my favorite but in top 30 they should place 11 they almost made the playoffs 18nth behind Washington and colombus

I love the Rangers

13 Buffalo Sabres Buffalo Sabres

The Sabres are rebuilding themselves and getting better players. Hopefully, the 2015-2016 season will be a better one. They've had there bad days, just like every other team, but a lot more of 'em. I think in a few years they will progress and eventually make a name for themselves. But yes, the way they have played the last few seasons, they needed to be on this list. All we can do now is hope!

Terrible team. Great marketing department with Sabres. They suck the fans in for a mediocre, at best, team that brags about coming so close to capitalizing on scoring chances. Just an absolutely poor excuse below average players...

For all the people that says the Buffalo Sabres suck just remember they have the most prospects out of any team, so just wait a few years till they beat your favorite teams.

I'm a fan, but they had to go on this list. The last few years have been the worst in sabres history. It seems like ages since buffalo was a cup contender (mid 2000's)

14 Ottawa Senators Ottawa Senators

I went to a hurricanes game and they played Ottawa and the hurricanes be them bad and why does people think this team is good. I think they were good last year but not this year

Ottawa Senators are great they just did not have the time to win the cup I know they will win it soon.

The senators are great they should go in first Bobby Ryan is not that good.

Ottawa is the best and I'm from Germany like ottawa shouldn't be here

15 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.

Nashville is my favorite team. Not many teams can go against the Ducks and actually beat them. The Hawks are a great team and Nashville almost beat them in the playoffs last year. They just need to improve a bit and they may become a force to be reckoned with. - Nashville

This is the worst team ever to come into the NHL.

I love them! They are my favorite team and have one of the best fanbases. I'm from Canada and I love them a lot!

There a really dirty team

16 Washington Capitals Washington Capitals

How is Washington in this list, they have only not made the playoffs once in the last 10 years, they have multiple division titles and president trophies

I don't like this team that much and I was thinking when I was a kid in this team only politicians are playing for this team because the name capitals
- hockeymaniac1972

Um... Guy who said "Go Leafs", the Caps are at the top of the league standings and have 76 points. So yeah, they are a good team.

Another team I hate with a passion. The oilers flames canadiens and blackhawks are better then this stupid team. I hate the ones from the southern states way more though. thank god the cup has never been to washington before. The blackhawks and avalanche are the only two americans teams I like. the other 98% can kiss my ass.

Crybaby and diver central
