While playing online in NHL 23, scoring goals is always going to be the best bet to win. Luckily, the top five offenses in the game should give players a lot of options when picking your team.

NHL 23 released on Oct. 14, 2022, and while there have been issues with online play and loyalty rewards, overall the game has been well received. Arguably the most important part of the game has to be scoring goals and controlling things offensively.

5 Best Offensive Teams in NHL 23

5. Pittsburgh Penguins - 92 Overall

Sidney Crosby might be 35 years old, but he can still play at a very high level. The Penguins star is a big reason for this team's offense being ranked so high.

4. Tampa Bay Lightning - 92 Overall

The Lightning have so many stars on their team offensively. They have Nikita Kucherov and Brayden Point. They also have Alex Killorn and Nick Paul alongside captain Steven Stamkos who started the 2022-23 NHL season with seven goals in eight games.

3. Toronto Maple Leafs - 92 Overall

Considering the Maple Leafs pay three of their offensive stars north of 10 million dollars a season, there's no wonder this team is the third best offense in the game. The Maple Leafs have Auston Matthews who scored 60 goals last season, and also have stars like Tavares, Marner and Nylander making this group one of the best to scores goal in the game. If you are only going to rely on outscoring opponents, you cannot go wrong with the Maple Leafs.

2. Edmonton Oilers - 93 Overall

The Edmonton Oilers have Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, two of the NHL's top stars in the entire league. There's no doubt this is one of the best offenses in the game, and if you are going to play as the Oilers, I would separate Draisaitl and McDavid so they are not on the same line. That way one can pretty much always be on the ice in the game.

1. Carolina Hurricanes - 94 Overall

The Carolina Hurricanes have a very deep offense, with stars like Sebastian Aho, Andrei Svechnikov, Teuvo Teravainen and Max Pacioretty to name a few. While the Hurricanes haven't had the real world success that they should have up to this point, there's no doubt in NHL 23 you cannot go wrong picking the Canes.
