This isn't the day of dynasties where teams used to own the Stanley Cup for years at a time. The Montreal Canadiens were the champions for five straight years from 1956-60. The Toronto Maple Leafs ruled the league from 1962-64. The Canadiens won four straight in the late '70s before the New York Islanders and Edmonton Oilers reigned in the 1980s.
