  1. Speaking of the Canes, if the Preds go into win the cup, Peter Laviolette will become a 2x champ with two different outlying teams; simply amazing. If you go up and down the NHL cup champions each team has at least 2 or 3 future Hall of Fame players until you hit the Canes. I can’t see the Preds boasting any possible HOF players with the exception of possibly Subban maybe.

  2. True-they work hard, want it badly and have a big, mobile defense that really supports there type of play.
    The 09/10 team with the killer B’s-Bolland, Brouwer, Bygulien, Ben Eager and Burrish was fun to watch, hard to play against.

  3. How can the Broad Street bullies not be on this list ,.,.great era for hockey ,.,.Super Series 76 ,chasing the Russians off the ice ,.,.Total Fear Factor . This is what Trumps talks about ,.,.Making America Great Again

  4. To put the 2010 team with the one hit wonders is a joke.

    The 2010/2013/2015 and teams are a dynasty.

    At least 2010 and 2013 teams in there.

    Should also factor in salary cap and how many good teams there were when the teams played to order the list.

    Bottom line. What teams are one hit wonders and which teams had dynastys.

  5. Lists like this are always going to be more contemporary then the entire history of the NHL sI no worries.

    Hawkhead I agree about the 76 Flyers.

    I disagree about Subban being a Hall of Fame player. A very good player but in no way is he the reason the Predators are where they are.

  6. Agree Mike about Subban think a big reason for Preds success is that Josi has been a go to guy on the blueline and not over depending on Subban as Montreal did.
