The Red Wings and Islanders are two of the most consistent teams in the league.

There's little doubt that teams like Chicago, San Jose and Anaheim will be at or near the top in the Western Conference. The same holds true for Pittsburgh and Boston in the East. 

Struggling teams like Florida, Buffalo, Calgary and Edmonton are right where most expected them to be. These teams don't win games very often and they have been consistently outplayed.

Fans, coaches, executives and media members understand consistency. A high level of talent should produce wins on an every-game basis. Teams that don't have as many skilled players will lose most of the time.

But what about the teams that have don't play to their talent level? The teams that don't play consistently are often maddening because their record does not indicate how well they can play.

In this feature, we rank the most inconsistent teams in the league.

There are seven teams that stand out. Notice that only two of them come from the Western Conference, which is clearly the stronger of the two NHL conferences this season.
