Simple answer? The Montreal Canadiens. This dates from the formation of the National Hockey League in 1917 (Toronto & Montreal were original members). More recently, the Ottawa Senators have become a fierce rival, as Ottawa has a definite advantage in regular season play, but the Leafs have won every playoff series.
No, Montreal did. In fact, they hold the record for most stanley cup wins in the entire league.

The National Hockey League was formed in the summer of 1917. In its first season, 1917-18, it started with four teams, the Ottawa Senators, Toronto Arenas, Montreal Canadiens and Montreal Wanderers.

The National Hockey League originated in 1917 with 4 teams, and through a sequence of team expansions, reductions and relocations currently consists of 30 teams, 23 of which are based in the United States and 7 in Canada. The founding members were the Montreal Canadiens, Montreal Wanders, Ottawa Senators and Quebec Bulldogs. Since the Bulldogs were unable to compete during the inaugural season, the remaining owners granted a temporary franchise to the Toronto Arena Company. This franchise is now known as the Toronto Maple Leafs. The "Original Six" are not original members of the league. The term refers to the Six franchises in operation between 1942 - 1967, when the NHL expanded to 12 teams. The "Original Six are Montreal Canadiens (1917, charter member), Toronto Maple Leafs, (1917, Toronto Arenas), Boston Bruins (1924), Detroit Red Wings (1926), Chicago Blackhawks (1926, Black Hawks) and New York Rangers (1926).

First NHL Teams Many cite an six original NHL hockey teams:Montreal CanadiensToronto Maple LeafsBoston BruinsDetroit Red WingsChicago Black HawksNew York RangersHere is more of the story.In 1917, four teams -- the Montreal Canadiens, Montreal Wanderers, Ottawa Senators and Quebec Bulldogs -- joined together to form the National Hockey League. Since the Bulldogs were unable to play during the league's inaugural season, the remaining owners granted a temporary franchise to the Toronto Arena Company in order to balance out the schedule. This "temporary" franchise becames the Toronto St. Patricks in 1919, (the same season charter member Quebec was finally able to resume operations) and the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1926.In that first season, after just six games, the Wanderers' rink burned to the ground, and the team "wandered" out of the league, never to be heard from again.The Quebec Bulldogs became the Hamilton Tigers lasted 5 seasons in the early 20s. Then the Montreal Maroons and the Boston Bruins were born, and the "traditional" NHL takes shape in the 1930s. The Montreal Maroons actually enjoyed some success until the 1930s.For those looking for a list of 12, they would be:Toronto ArenasMontreal CanadiensOttawa SenatorsMontreal WanderersQuebec BulldogsHamilton TigersMontreal MaroonsBoston Bruins (The franchise dates from 1924.)Pittsburgh PiratesNew York AmericansDetroit Red WingsChicago Black HawksThat brings us to 1926-27, by the way.

The currently active National Hockey League team with the most Stanley Cups won is the Montreal Canadians. They currently have 23, and they're followed by the Toronto Maple Leafs with 13. The third place team is the Detroit RedWings, with 11. Also note that one of the Montreal Canadians Stanley Cup wins was pre-NHL, and the Toronto Maple Leafs wins are the wins accumulated in that organization. That counts the team's two previous titles, the Toronto Arenas and the Toronto St Pats.
