We asked a bunch of fans of National Hockey League to tell us which teams were the best of all time. After three stages of voting, we in Progressive Hockey finally came up with this list that gathers some of the greatest teams to ever win the Stanley Cup, based on the public’s opinion.
The Edmonton Oilers from 1984 to 1985
This team completely surpassed the previous one. Even though the team before them also won the Stanley Cup, this team increased their skills in the game and showed off so much confidence that success was a thing.
They are a favorite among the fans thanks to their incredible abilities which set new records and allow the team to win a second championship in a row.
The Pittsburgh Penguins from 1991 to 1992
This team outstands thanks to its amazing players. Like for example, JaromirJagr, who made his way to the scoring gate and made one of the most amazing goals in a Stanley Cup Playoff. This moment is referred to as one of the most amazing goals ever seen in history.
The Detroit Red Wings from 2001 to 2002
From the beginning, this amazing team seemed like they were destined for greatness. Just by the fact that the coacher is Scotty Bowman, known to be in the Hall of Fame, it’s easy to say that they’re going to stand out.
And they surely did, by winning five games in a Cup Final against the Carolina Hurricanes and by that, winning the third Stanley Cup of the team after six years.
The New York Islanders from 1982 to 1983
This team never fails to appear in all of those “the greatest of all time” tops, they marked history by winning the fourth straight championship to the Islanders. They won against the Oilers, who seemed to be really strong competitors
However, without a doubt, the Islanders were able to shut down their rivals’ defense and play their way to success.
You chose them and we share them. Those were some of the most outstanding teams in the history of NHL.
