22. San Francisco Giants: 2010-2014
Championships: ’10, ’12, ’14
The most impressive thing about this team was their dominance during their postseason runs; they compiled a 34-14 overall record over the five-year span. Being led by Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval, and Madison Bumgarner, the Giants were almost unbeatable in the postseason – capturing three titles in five seasons. Even though that feat is impressive – as they were the first NL team to accomplish it since the Cardinals in the 1940s – the fact that they seemed to only be able to win in even years and were unable to defend a title keeps them from being higher on this list.

21. Chicago Blackhawks: 2010-present
Championships: ’10, ’13, ’15
The Blackhawks’ front office deserves a lot of credit for this dynasty. After a change of ownership in 2007, the team began working hard to rebuild the franchise and put together a winning team. They weren’t afraid to make trades or spend money to get it done – it also didn’t hurt that they drafted two generational talents in Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews. Despite their age, they quickly took control of the team with their hard-nosed play and ability to put pucks in the back of nets. Winning three Stanley Cups in six seasons is quite the accomplishment, and with both Kane and Toews still under the age of 30, this dynasty might not be done.
