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!

They at least should relocate maybe Quebec City or Hartford or something like that. Because if they stay in Florida, they will FAIL. (who had the idea to put them in Miami when Miami is like a warm city. I mean I'm just asking)

They suck so bad a peewee team will beat them

2 Columbus Blue Jackets Columbus Blue Jackets

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

They made the playoffs? NAH. They can barely do good enough to make the playoffs.

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

I hate this team they are near Cleveland

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.

Okay this list needs to be updated. The Oilers are doing great. Supports Alberta's NHL teams Oilers Flames are both awesome. Screw the panthers.

Seriously worst team! Everyone hates them

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.

Worst team in the nhl they have no good Player. Wow

5 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.

They suck so bad that in my school everyone chants "FLAMES SUCK FLAMES SUCK" over and over again. The oilers have won the cup 5 times while the FLAMES have won it once and they were founded in the same year. I hate the FLAMES

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.

I can't believe they got jagr from the panthers that looks like a good fit for him and he a legend in the nhl.

I hate em they suck

6 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

They haven't won a Stanley cup since 1967, longest losing streak right now, NOT COOL DUDE!

The leafs are hands down the worst team in the nhl history they haven't won a championship since 1967! Everything about Toronto is bad and always will be! They just can't do anything right. Any player who plays there is wasting their carrier! Enough said.

They kiss the butts of the pens
the suck 24/7
and suck as much as minecraft llamas

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...

Bruins beat them their goalies have bad numbers and they have never beat us anytime ha

Should be number one

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.

Pens are the best

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

The penguins lost to the bruins ha ha boston better than this stupid cheater team I hate them

90% of penguins fans are bandwagoners. I normaly respect their fans usually. I will respect them if they were a fan before 2016.

9 Tampa Bay Lightning Tampa Bay Lightning

Tampa is a good team although panthers make no sense and people need to stop saying we know nothing about hockey just because it's hot and humid here we actually teach a lot of hockey

They have won a cup

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 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

Good so far in the season I watch the game against the golden knights they beat them so good they have good goalies connor hellbuck and steve mason and I love Brian little and tyler myers

The Contenders

11 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...

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)

This has lost every game they never will make the playoff or win the cup

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

I think the Devils should be more about... maybe... number 2 on the lit come on man thi team sucks

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 Vancouver Canucks Vancouver Canucks The Vancouver Canucks are an ice hockey team based in Vancouver, British Columbia. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

Always brag about their one win and jump off when they lose their next game

With a stupid name with riot fans.

They suck and have the worst fans.

Never making the cup with Hendrick and daniel sedin

14 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.

Having a trouble start so far after losing to a lot of teams Edmonton was hard but Tampa bay today will be hard

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.

15 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.

they suck

16 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.

There a really dirty team

They are amazing they outplayed the penguins in the stanley cup the Preds truly are one of the best teams in the Nhl if not the best

17 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.

They suck

18 Dallas Stars Dallas Stars The Dallas Stars are a professional ice hockey team based in Dallas, Texas. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

Everybody thought they going to good team since they got ben bishop,marc mehot,martin hanzel and radlov but they aren't

19 Anaheim Ducks Anaheim Ducks

They did NOT deserve to make the Conference final of the 2016-2017 Stanley Cup playoffs. Ryan Kesler is the WORST!

I hate them we should eat them for a holiday when you eat duck

The ducks suck so bad! They should replace them on the list with the penguins

The players can be mean. The captain just said something homophobic
