Well of all the current chapters that have official Fluff the Space Wolves and Black Templars probably stand the best chance simply because they outnumber any other single chapter by a fair margin.

yeah i would say black templars because there are so many of them.
with space wolves , you could wage a seige on their home world and they would be the defenders. however, with the black templars, they have no homeworld, and they have shitloads of spaceships all over the place, I think this would be much harder to destroy. also they could probably recruit new marines and replenish their forces much quicker.

But then again, there's the whole 'divide and conquer' philosophy. A crusade's worth of a couple hundred or so Black Templars could be easily overwhelmed by a chapter marauding at full strength (the space-bourne Imperial Fists spring to mind).

Black templars or Grey Knights(if they count)

Grey Knights have the power of the =I= on their side and black templars just have too many marines.

I think it would come down to who has the biggest fleet of ships. Imperial Fists? BTs? Dark angels have that massive planet rock spaceship thing , im sure that would have some crazy capabilities

The "Vortex" is there for a reason - said torpedos skip in and out of realspace and into the warp, evading shields (and armour) in the process.

Space Wolves or Black Templars, as has been said.
