Top 10 Best NHL Teams 2023-2024 Rankings

Best Hockey Teams Right Now | All Star Weekend

The NHL All-Star weekend has come and gone, and we are gearing up for the rest of the NHL season, with the trade deadline just around the corner. There have been quite a few teams that have slipped out of the top ten, but the usual suspects are still there. Here are the Top 10 NHL teams so far.

Honorable Mention

Philadelphia Flyers

Previous Ranking: Honorable Mention

Much like the Vancouver Canucks, the Flyers are also playing extremely well out of nowhere. While the Flyers might not have elite players like the Canucks, they have been third in the Metropolitan for most of the season and are looking like they could really take a swing at the playoffs.

They are being led in points by Travis Konecny with 22 goals and 20 assists in 50 games. Even with some of the unflattering press they have had this season; the Flyers are exciting to watch. They are currently sitting at 25-19-6.

Top 10 Best NHL Teams

10. Edmonton Oilers

Previous Ranking: Unranked 

After one of the worst starts of the Connor McDavid era, the Edmonton Oilers are back where they belong, even if it is the middle of the pack.

The Oilers are currently 30-16-1 on the season, with pretty low goals for with 160. They are currently being led in points by who else but Connor McDavid?

Even with 67 points, McDavid is not leading the team in goals. Zach Hyman currently has 30 goals this season and 47 points. The Oilers still have plenty of time left to go and hold third place in the Pacific.

9. Carolina Hurricanes

Previous Ranking: Unranked

The Eastern Conference this season is tough, especially with the Flyers coming out of nowhere, but the Hurricanes are still duking it out with the Rangers for the top of the Metropolitan Division.

The Hurricanes are being led in points by Sebastian Aho who currently has 17 goals and 37 assists. It seems like the Hurricanes as a whole are playing shorter this season.

Michael Bunting also played well in his first season, scoring 10 goals and 21 assists. The Hurricanes are currently second in the Metro, with a record of 28-15-5 and 61 points.

8. New York Rangers

Previous Ranking: 2

The Rangers are currently in the midst of another great season and are currently sitting first in the Metropolitan Division and third in the Eastern Conference.

The usual suspects are leading the way for the Rangers, with Artemi Panarin scoring 30 goals and 36 assists for 66 points in 49 games played.

Currently, at 63 points, the Rangers are 30-16-3, two points above the Hurricanes. With plenty of runway left, the Rangers can easily lock up the Metro.

7. Vegas Golden Knights

Previous Ranking: 4

We definitely don’t want to use the word hangover from their Stanley Cup title last season, but the Golden Knights are not quite playing up to the expectations that I think most hockey fans have.

Even though they are sitting second in the Pacific Division, they are only five points ahead of the Oilers and seven points behind the Canucks.

Their highest-scoring player this season is Mark Stone, who only has 49 points. The Knights are great down the stretch, but the play has been underwhelming.

6. Winnipeg Jets

Previous Ranking: 8

The Winnipeg Jets have been one of the more pleasant surprises of this NHL season. They are currently in a three-way battle with the Stars and Avalanche for first place in the Central Division.

Mark Scheifele is leading the team in points with 14 goals and 27 assists for 41 points thus far. The Jets are currently third in the Central Division with a record of 30-12-5 and have been playing great hockey night after night.

5. Dallas Stars

Previous Ranking: 7

As previously mentioned, the Stars, Jets and Avalanche are all right there, with one another duking it out for first in the Central Division.

The Stars are only one point ahead of the Jets and one point below the Avalanche. Currently sitting at 30-13-6, the Stars are chugging along at what might be their last gasp with their current core.

The Stars drafting is paying off in spades as they are being led in points by Jason Robertson and Roope Hintz with 50 points and 47 points, respectively.

4. Florida Panthers

Previous Ranking: 9

The Florida Panthers are seemingly looking like one of the most aggravating teams to play against right now, and they are being led by lovable or hateable pest Nick Cousins in this fashion.

One of the most notable storylines for the Panthers this season is the play of Sam Reinhart, who, of course, is in a contract year. Reinhart is leading the Panthers in points with 37 goals and 25 assists for 62 points. The Panthers are 31-14-4 and second in the Atlantic Division.

3. Colorado Avalanche

Previous Ranking: 3

Going into the All-Star break, the Avalanche were humming, going 7-3-0 in their last ten games. Nathan MacKinnon has come off the top rope this season, and currently has 84 points from 31 goals and 53 assists.

He is currently on pace for 141 points. The Avalanche are also getting help down the lineup, with Mikko Rantanen at 66 points and Makar at 58 points. The Avalanche are currently second in the West with a record of 32-14-3.

2. Boston Bruins

Previous Ranking: 1

After the let-down that was last season, the Bruins are hoping they can go a little further this time. David Pastrnak has been the leader for the Bruins basically all season, scoring 33 goals and 39 assists for 72 points.

The real story is once again the Bruins goaltending, with Swayman and Ulmark absolutely killing it. The Bruins currently lead the East and are tied with the Canucks for first place in the league.

1. Vancouver Canucks

Previous Ranking: 6

Where did the Vancouver Canucks come from? The team went from the gutter of the league, all the way to literally the top.

They have been playing so well that they have been buyers in the trade market this year, adding Zadorov and Lindholm. J.T. Miller, who once looked like he was going to be bought out, is leading the team with 67 points.

Quinn Hughes has also been playing well, scoring 12 goals and 50 points so far this season. The Canucks are currently 33-11-5 on the season and are easily leading the Western Conference.
