Since the NHL came back from their lockout in 2005, the game has changed a great deal.
Teams now have to become faster and swifter on their skates, instead of just physically overpowering their opposition. Stricter rules have limited fighting and have created more one or two men advantages per game.
Still, we see spurts of old style play. This year's Boston Bruins showed that a physical team can still win the Stanley Cup.
With that in mind, here are the toughest teams in NHL history.
