Rank the dynasties

There have been 9 recognized NHL dynasties in history:

1920-27 Ottawa Senators
1947-51 Toronto Maple Leafs
1950-55 Detroit Red Wings
1956-60 Montreal Canadiens
1962-67 Toronto Maple Leafs
1965-69 Montreal Canadiens
1976-79 Montreal Canadiens
1980-83 NY Islanders
1984-90 Edmonton Oilers

Rank these dynasties according to which you think are the best to "worst". If all of these dynasties played at the same time, which ones would come out on top the most?

Initial impressions. Might be totally off. Pretty sure on the bottom 4 though.

1956-60 Montreal Canadiens
1976-79 Montreal Canadiens
1984-90 Edmonton Oilers
1980-83 NY Islanders
1950-55 Detroit Red Wings
1920-27 Ottawa Senators
1962-67 Toronto Maple Leafs
1965-69 Montreal Canadiens
1947-51 Toronto Maple Leafs

1980-83 NY Islanders
1950-55 Detroit Red Wings
1920-27 Ottawa Senators
1962-67 Toronto Maple Leafs
1969-74 Boston Bruins
1965-69 Montreal Canadiens
1947-51 Toronto Maple Leafs

That'd be my pick. Bolded Winners in a Series. I just dont see anyone capable of completely shutting them down. Gretzky factor. Missing from the equation the great Red Wings Teams of the 90's & 00's. Im guessing for a reason, criteria?

This list looks about right. I think the Oilers and Islanders are a coinflip, but otherwise, this is how I'd have them.

It sure would be something to see an offensive juggernaut against the complete teams in Montreal's dynasties. The Isles probably best emulated the Montreal 70's dynasty with their checking, scoring and defense and they split with the Oilers, albeit they were worn down by 84. I don't think the way Dryden played in the 70's matches up too well with the criss cross game of the Oilers; very European style. Dryden would have a hard time with the lateral movement. But if the Big 3 on D can contain the Oilers, they'd have to do it quickly because they played so much in the playoffs. They'd lose 20 pounds in a 7 gamer.

I was going by the dynasties officially recognized by the HHOF or NHL.

I'd say the Red Wings team you mentioned would be more of a "mini-dynasty".

Ya, I mean, your dealing with lightning in a bottle there with Gretzky, Kurri, Coffey & the rest of them. As great as those Defensemen were on the Habs 76-79 team, heck, any of them, I just dont see anyone stopping the Oilers and absolutely, considered that about Dryden. He would have serious trouble with Edmonton. Imagine Gretzky back there in his office behind the net or any one of the Oilers really who were beyond patient with the puck on the attack. Their style of play precipitated the advancement & acceleration of the Butterfly and the demise of the Stand-Up Goaltender. The Islanders would probably be the only team from that grouping, and in their prime capable of beating them, as they truly were a sort of hybrid transitional team. Old school meets new. Billy Smith a better bet than #29 facing a foe of that nature for sure in my book.

Oh ok. Well, I kinda messed it up a bit Im afraid. Added Boston to the mix. Another "mini-dynasty". Was going to also add the Flyers.
