NHL Power Rankings: Rating the Hottest Fanbases in Hockey

0 of 30

    As we enter the final week of the NHL regular season, hockey fans around the league have some mixed emotions.

    Some fans could not be happier about their team's play, as they are looking very good going into the playoffs. Some fans are crushed and disappointed that their teams collapsed at the end of the season and will be missing out on postseason activities.

    Other fans, like the faithful in Edmonton, are just happy the season is almost over and can look forward to their next season.

    After a long and exciting season, let's take a break from the ice and enjoy one of the other fantastic things about this great game.

    The women.

    The NHL has some of the hottest fans in all of sports. Here is a list that ranks the teams with the sexiest fans.

30. Calgary Flames

1 of 30

    As of right now, Calgary is on the outside looking in. With only two games left, the Flames are one point out.

    Even if they miss out on the playoffs, fans still get the luxury of looking at girls like this.

29. Florida Panthers

2 of 30

    The Panthers are not making the playoffs.

    And this was the only picture I could find with a chick sporting Panthers gear...


28. Atlanta Thrashers

3 of 30

    The Thrashers are now eliminated from postseason contention.

    Just like the Thrashers not being able to find a playoff spot, I honestly did not even come close to finding a picture of a good-looking Thrasher fan. So I figured the next best thing would be the team's ice girls. 

27. Ottawa Senators

4 of 30

    Ottawa has been eliminated from the playoffs for a while now.

    It is also very hard to find a picture of a good-looking Sens fan.

    Not a lot to say about this picture except "nice legs."

26. Minnesota Wild

5 of 30

    The Wild are eliminated from the playoffs.

    The Wild are ranked last and it is also impossible to find a picture of an attractive Wild fan. 

25. Edmonton Oilers

6 of 30

    Edmonton was the absolute worst team in hockey this season.

    I wouldn't be surprised if fans went to games just to look at the girls.

24. Colorado Avalanche

7 of 30

    The Colorado Avalanche had a miserable season. 

    And I had a miserable time trying to find a picture of a sexy Avalanche fan. So I figured there are good chances that if someone is a Rockies fan in Denver, that person may also be faithful to the Avalanche.

23. Toronto Maple Leafs

8 of 30

    The Maple Leafs will not be in the playoffs. 

    At least the girls in Toronto are nice-looking.

22. Anaheim Ducks

9 of 30

    It was hard to find a picture of a sexy Ducks fan. Bright side is that the Ducks are making the playoffs.

    These good-looking ladies are wearing skates, and in the middle of the background it looks like Anaheim colors. So there you go. 

21. Buffalo Sabres

10 of 30

    If looks like Buffalo will be making the playoffs. 

    If all of their fans are willing to meet players behind the Zambonis, I want to play for Buffalo.

20. San Jose Sharks

11 of 30

    San Jose is one of the teams that have already clinched a spot in the playoffs.

    The female fans in San Jose are good-looking, just like the chances of their team winning in the playoffs.

19. New York Rangers

12 of 30

    King Henrik and company are currently in the playoff picture.

    New York is a city with beautiful women. And that does not change when it comes to the Rangers' female fans.

18. Nashville Predators

13 of 30

    Nashville is a team with high hopes to go far in this season's playoffs.

    Things are good in Music City right now—the hockey team and the girls are looking real good.

17. St. Louis Blues

14 of 30

    St. Louis was hit hard with injuries this season. Because of that, they are missing out on the playoffs again.

    The Gateway City is known for being great sports fans. The women in St. Louis are as pretty as they are knowledgable about their Blues. The women are very beautiful and fill up the Scottrade Center for all the games.

16. Phoenix Coyotes

15 of 30

    Phoenix is a powerful team from the West that will be playing in the postseason.

    They also have some great-looking fans. Must be nice to live down in the desert. 

15. New York Islanders

16 of 30

    The New York Islanders are eliminated from the playoffs.

    Even though the Islanders were one of the worst teams in the league, they receive tons of support from some wonderful-looking girls.

14. Washington Capitals

17 of 30

    Washington is going to be in the playoffs as usual.

    They have never been able to win it all, but maybe the good-looking girls in the nation's capital will bring them some luck this year.

13. Carolina Hurricanes

18 of 30

    Right now, Carolina is two points out of the playoffs with three games to go.

    Be proud, Carolina—even if you miss the playoffs, your women are very attractive.

12. New Jersey Devils

19 of 30

    New Jersey struggled majorly in the beginning of the season, but then they won a tremendous amount of games. However, it wasn't enough because they fell short and have been eliminated.

    On the other hand, New Jersey has some great-looking female fans.

11. Columbus Blue Jackets

20 of 30

    Columbus is not going to be skating in the postseason. 

    But, if the Blue Jackets have Erin Andrews as a fan, I want to see who else they have as fans. 

10. Boston Bruins

21 of 30

    The Boston Bruins are currently in third place in the tough Eastern Conference and have already clinched their division title thanks to the help from Tim Thomas' red-hot play.

    This trio is looking very good, just like the Bruins' playoff chances.

9. Chicago Blackhawks

22 of 30

    It's going to be a close call if the Blackhawks make the playoffs or not. As of right now they are in by one point.

    However, the defending Stanley Cup champions are blessed to be able to have the support of many bombshells like this in the Windy City.

8. Detroit Red Wings

23 of 30

    The Motor City has the best team in the Central Division and the second-best team in the Western Conference.

    Their women are just like their team, amazing. Besides the awful Lions, the mediocre Tigers, and the crime rate, it must be nice to live in Detroit.

7. Tampa Bay Lighting

24 of 30

    Tampa Bay is a team that is exciting to watch and has already clinched a playoff spot.

    The girls in Tampa are extremely good-looking and it is no wonder why this team is ranked so high on the hottest fans list.

6. Philadelphia Flyers

25 of 30

    Philadelphia holds the best record in the East.

    The Stanley Cup runner-ups aslo have the right to say that they have some of the hottest fans in all of hockey.

5. Pittsburgh Penguins

26 of 30

    Even though the Penguins have been brutally plagued by injuries, they will still make the playoffs.

    The Penguins have a lot of hot fans and will have tons of sexy women in the Consol Energy Center this spring for the NHL playoffs.

4. Montreal Canadiens

27 of 30

    Montreal will be back in action come postseason time.

    Canadiens fans are known for being some of the best fans in hockey. They are also some of the most attractive. Must be nice to be Carey Price and get to be cheered on by some of hockey's hottest fans.

3. Los Angeles Kings

28 of 30

    Los Angeles is going to make the playoffs.

    I dont care if this chick is an ice girl, I was not going to pass on this photo. Los Angeles has some of the hottest chicks in the world and I cant wait to go to a game at the Staples Center.

    I now know why Randy Newman loves LA.

2. Dallas Stars

29 of 30

    Slim chances for Dallas making the playoffs.

    But be happy, Stars fans, Texas has a ton of hot women and your women are absolutely gorgeous!

1. Vancouver Canucks

30 of 30

    Luongo and the Canucks have already clinched the Presidents' Trophy with the best record in the NHL.

    The girls in Vancouver are absolutely perfect, just like the team's play.

    That is why they hold the No. 1 spot.
