1976-79 Montral Canadiens (4 straight cups) first dynasty in expansion times

1980-83 New York Islanders (4 straight cups) second dynasty in expansion times

1956-60 Montreal Canadiens (Record 5 straight Cups) lets face it 5 in a row

1984-90 Edmonton Oilers (5 cups in 7 years) should have been 5 in a row

1940's Toronto Maple Leafs (4 Cups in 5 years (well 5 in 7) including 3 straight) toss up

1965-69 Montreal Canadiens (4 cups in 5 years and often over looked) toss up

toss up between last two as only 6 team league and players had no movement rights, but great teams to say the least

1) 1980-1983 Islanders—It may be 4 cups and not 5—but no team in NHL history won 19 straight playoff series. Im not saying it because I am Isles fan—I am saying it because there has never been that kind of dominance—not in the other dynasties.

2) 1984-1990 Oilers—As much as I hated the Oilers for beating the Isles—that team was super. They did not match the Isles 19 straight however, which is why I put them one slot behind.

3) 1956-1960 Canadiens—the quintessential dynasty—a great team who might have won even more or been up there with the Isles/Oilers if they accomplished 20+ playoff series wins.

4) 1976-1979 Canadiens—a great team but not the powerhouse teams the Islanders and Oilers built.

The others—well—all great teams—but we could debate which goes where—but for me—there three stand out the most.

1956-'60 Habs - Sorry, original 6 or not I hate it when people say how easy it was back then. The fact speak for themselves, the 1950s Habs are the only team to win 4 in a row let alone 5. Just once prior to this did a team even hit 3 in a row. The 1960s Leafs did it in the 1960s as well. But honestly, if it were so easy it would have been done more often, case closed.

1976-'79 Habs - Close, but 4 in a row compared to 5. But the dominance of those teams was staggering compared to the rest of the NHL. It's almost as if the Habs got bored with the NHL midway through their streak

This is where it gets tricky. I am a huge fan of the Oilers, Islanders and 1950s Red Wings. I know the Red Wings only one 4/6 years but they led the NHL in points every year even when they didn't win. To me, that's dominance. The Isles had 4 Cups in a row, which has only been done one other time and in all honesty is hard in any era, but they didn't quite have the regular season dominance despite leading the NHL in points twice in that span. Ditto for the Oilers and that gap in 1986 hurts. So for lack of a better word I put these three teams in sort of a deadlock with each other.

After that:

1947-'49 Leafs - I think I put this team higher than others. This team was stacked and is always overlooked IMO. I won't count 1945 because that was a totally different team with half of the team filled with WWII fillers who were barely in the NHL after that.

1965-'69 Habs - 4 in 5 is just what it is, spectacular. They could have done 5 in a row too but well 1967 happened. Still a great crew. Beliveau, H. Richard, a young Cournoyer, Provost, Backstrom, Laperriere, Worsley, Vachon (2 Cups), Lemaire, Tremblay etc. Often forgotten for whatever reason probably because the attention was focused more on expansion although the Habs kept their core together.

That's just wrong. They were more dominant than either the Oilers or Islanders.

As for the 19 straight playoff series: Be serious. In the 1981 playoffs the Ilses beat 3 team that were under .500. And in the finals the mighty North Stars (35-28-17) 3rd in their own division.

I don't think any team before or after has dominated their peers to a greater degree than those Habs teams.

They led the league in goals against every year during that stretch while outscoring all other teams during the same period.

The 1976-77 incarnation lost 8 games and led the league in both goals for and against for a +216 goal differential. The 387 goals they scored was 64 more than second place Philly and they gave up 171 goals when only one other team allowed fewer than 200 (the Isles with 193).

1976-79 Canadiens-The record speaks for itslef, had the best of both worlds on terms of Offense and Defense

1980-83 Islanders- A difficult matchup for any dynasty, 2nd on my list.

1984-90 Oilers- Loss in 1986 puts them third on my list, Canadiens and Islanders i think were better.

1956-60 Canadiens- Great team in the field of 6.
