Picking the best NHL team of all time is an easy task for me, because I’m biased to my hometown Montreal Canadiens. There are many stand out teams, many great players, and times where one team dominated for years. The teams selected here were based on the amount of Stanley Cups they have won, the hall of famers in the team, and their period of dominance primarily. There is no team from after 1990 featured which is interesting. This list tracks the best NHL teams from the Ottawa Senators team of 1919 to 1927 to the Edmonton Oilers of 1983 to 1990. This info-graphic from Tucker Hockey outlines the greatest achieving NHL teams and lists the successes the teams had during their periods of dominance.
