When you mention the Edmonton Oilers, one word comes to mind: Dynasty. The Oilers ruled the National Hockey League during the 1980s — winning four Stanley Cups in five seasons with Wayne Gretzky and Co. leading the way. The championship team — which along with Gretzky featured Hall of Fame stars Mark Messier, Jari Kurri, Paul Coffey and Glenn Anderson — won its first Stanley Cup during the 1983-84 season after defeating the New York Islanders.
That paved the way for another Cup the following season when the Oilers beat the Philadelphia Flyers. Two more titles came shortly after and the Oilers added a fifth for good measure during the 1989-90 season, even after Gretzky was traded to the Los Angeles Kings. The Oilers also made it to the Stanley Cup final in 2006 when they lost to the Carolina Hurricanes in seven games.
