Most Talented & Skilled Team in the History of the NHL?

53 posts in this topic

Who is the most talented and skilled team of all time?

The Oilers in the 80's. ? Detroit Yzerman, Lisdstrom Era?

I truly think this years Pittsburg team fully loaded and Healthy is the most talented and skilled team front to back ever assembled. This team could possibly win a gold medal winning in the Olympics !

Crosby Malkin Letang Iginla Morrow Fleury to name a few of the Power House

What are your thoughts.?

Colorado had some great teams in the 90s and 2000s. The Islanders, Flyers, and Oilers in the 80s.

Present day Pittsburgh is solid, but not really up there with the other dynasties.

Current Pens not even close.

The Oilers, Islanders, Canadiens, Red Wings... gotta be a team from one of the dynasties

Ever since the Montreal/Edmonton/Islanders dynasty's ended, it has to be the 2001-2002 Detroit Red Wings.

10 Players on that team are already in, or have a good shot to be in the Hall of Fame.

Shanahan

Federov

Yzerman

Hull

Lidstrom

Robataille

Larionov

Chelios

Hasek

Datsyuk

80s Oilers easily. If I had to give a top 5 it would look like this

1) 70s Canadiens/80s Oilers

2) 2001-02 Wings

3) 2002 Avs

4) 2010 Hawks

5) 2013 Penguins/early 80s Islanders

If all of the players on this years penguins were in there prime and healthy (Iginla, Morrow way past prime, Crosby injured) then they could maybe compete. Not now though.

I would say a 3 way tie;

1....80's Oilers

2....75-79 Habs

3....56-60 Habs

1980's Oilers (Gretz, Messier, Kurri, Coffey, Anderson, etc...) followed by the 1970 Habs and 1980's Isles who both won back to back 4 straight Stanley cups

I think it's basically take your pick between the Habs of the 70s, or the Oilers/Islanders of the 80s. I would probably pick the '76-77 Habs. In more modern times, the '02 Red Wings were pretty scarily stacked.

If we look outside the NHL, that would be an awesome question. One of the great Team Canadas, or the feared Red Army teams.
