Pretty much includes the Flyers, Pens, Kings, Blues, Stars, and Seals alongside the O6. But if you don't count defunct or moved teams, swap the last two w/ the Sabres and Canucks. Depends on how you look at it. But it oughta be original 13 if you count Ottawa.

Or 21 if you count count The Wanderers, The Americans, The Pirates, The Bulldogs, The Tigers, The Eagles, The Quakers and The Maroons. Depends on how you look at it. The Original 6 are set and known. It's a silly idea for a journalist to try to come with such a vague concept as the Original 12.

The Bulldogs, Tigers and Americans are all the same team. As are the Seantors and Eagles. I think The Quakers and Maroons are the same team too, but I could be wrong.

You're right exept for the Quackers/Maroons which are different franchises. I didn't do any research, I just wanted to point out the silliness of the concept.

I wouldn't be so quick to snicker about post Original 6 teams, lots of cities were around before the Original 6.

Pittsburgh has the oldest pro hockey history in the United States and rivals several Canadian NHL cities...

The 2nd NHL team in the United States was Pittsburgh in 1925, they wore black & gold until 1929 where they switched to black & orange. After the big stock market crash, in 1930-31 they moved to Philly and became the Quakers, they folded a year later. That is where the Flyers got their colors, from the Pittsburgh Pirates.

I knew Philly got their team from another city, I just assumed the Maroons moved somewhere, not the Pirates.
