Rank the 5 most legendary teams in order. You select the teams! Oh and please provide reasons or something of why you chose that team or else this will turn into a stupid thread. Oh and please no 2 word reasons. 1- Montreal, 24 stanley cups, legends like 11 time cup winner Henri Richard, first person to score 50 in 50 Rocket Richard, Jean Beliveau and the flower Guy Lafleur. Defenseman like Doug Harvey and Larry Robinson as well as goalies like Jacques Plante and Patrick Roy. Had two big dinasties, won 5 straight cups in the 50-s and 4 straight in the 70-s. 2- Toronto: Have won 13 cups in their history, although they were coached by a freak by the name of Imlack (sp?). Such great players as Frank Mahovlich who might've been one of the best of all time had he been coached by a better person and by the player who notched the most goals and points ever in one game, Darryl Sittler. However they havent won a cup since 1967. 3- Detroit: Have won 11 cups in their famed legacy. Have had remarkable players over the years such as the second leading pointer in league history Mr. Hockey Gordie Howe, his centerman Ted Lindsay, and most recently Steve Yzerman and Dominik Hasek. 4- Boston: Another succesfull team, the Bruins were known as one of the best checking teams of all time. Have had what some consider the best hockey player of all time Offensive and Defensive Defenseman Bobby Orr, and awesome sniper Phil Esposito. Havent won a cup though since 1972. 5- Edmonton: Although a new team, entered the league in 1979 and only 4 years later won their first stanley cup by sweeping the defending champions in 4 games. Then repeated as champs the next year. However they lost the following year only to win another two in a row later and the last one in 1990. They were lead by the Great One Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Jari Kurri, Grant Fuhr and Paul Coffee.
