14 I thought Here are the criteria I used in ranking the best winning streaks of all time. Won any awards How many championships/ finals Who was their best player How many people got into the hall of fame What do you think? 1. Do you agree with my ranking? If you don t, try ranking them yourself. Justify your ranking with data. You may use my criteria or you may use your own. 2. Here are 3 other winning streaks that I considered but in the end did not include in my top 5 list: Edmonton Oilers ( ), Los Angeles Lakers ( ), New York Islanders ( ). Do you think they should have made my list? Or are there any other winning streaks that you think should have made my list?
