So here is a list of the teams that have Stanley cups and how many times they won it. Then after i will put the teams who dont have one.

Thats the 17 of 30 Current Teams that have won cups.
Here are they Teams looking for their first.
Buffalo Sabres, Columbus Blue Jackets, Florida Panthers, Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators, Ottawa Senators*, Phoenix Coyotes, St. Louis Blues, San Jose Sharks, Vancouver Canucks, Washington Capitals and the Winnipeg Jets.
Now you look at those teams and wonder, “How”.Well lets just say the playoffs have been rough for some of these teams. But if i was to Rank the Top 5 teams in that list that could get it done in the next few years, it would look like this.
1) Washington Capitals.
2) Vancouver Canucks.
3) San Jose Sharks.
4)Los Angeles Kings
So thats my opinion. Whats your top 5 to possibly win their first championships? I would love to hear your opinions.

*Ottawa Senators have won 6 cups during the pre-NHL days and a few in the NHL days. But were moved to St. Louis a long time ago. Didnt become a team in Ottawa until the 92-93 season.. Not sure why the cups arent recognzed though. Anyone have any input for me?
