NHL.org has published its final rankings for the 2016-17 season and they show the Toronto Maple Leafs to be the league’s most successful team.
The team finished second in the Eastern Conference for a second consecutive year, and is on pace to become just the second team in league history to win at least 50 games for the first time in four seasons.
It is also the only team in the history of the NHL to be awarded the Norris Trophy three times, which goes to the top team in each division.
It was the fourth time this season that the Leafs won the Norris.
It’s not surprising to see the Leafs ranking higher this year, given the talent they have assembled and the depth they have on the back end.
The team is a top 10 power in the league, having won a Stanley Cup in 2017 and finished in the top 10 in scoring three times.
The Leafs have also won two division titles in the past two years, both with their current roster.
They won a second division title in 2017 after leading the Eastern Division for two years and the Presidents’ Trophy in 2016.
This season has also seen a rise in goals scored for the Leafs.
In 2016-2017, they were eighth in the NHL, with just one team coming within six points of them, the Montreal Canadiens.
They have now scored more goals than any team in NHL history for a season.
The Canadiens scored more than 200 goals this season.
The Maple Leafs have been the most successful franchise in the League since the lockout in 2014-2015.
This year, they have had three consecutive 30-win seasons and have won the Stanley Cup three times in the last four seasons, a record that ties for the most in the entire NHL.
The 2016-19 Leafs are also the most valuable team in history.
In total, the Maple Leafs are worth $3.8 billion.
It’s the most money ever spent by a hockey team in Canadian history.
They currently own the most NHL franchises, and the franchise has more than $2 billion in assets.
