The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / 2017-18 NHL Power Rankings 11/25/17

2017-18 NHL Power Rankings 11/25/17

NHL Power Rankings
Publish Date: 11/25/2017
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

 

31) Buffalo Sabres – Even Jack Eichel, for all his gifts, can’t elevate a moribund group around him.

30) Los Angeles Kings – The Kings’ overally play has dipped as of late, with only 7 points in their last 10 games. They should be fine.

29) Ottawa Senators – With only 8 points in their last 10 games, the picture is becoming  bleak for the Senators, who aren’t particularly impressive statistically.

28) Arizona Coyotes – The Coyotes are still terrible, but they’ve at least hung around recently.

27) Philadelphia Flyers – Philly plays a solid game, and could be a move or two away from being even better. However, they’ve really struggled lately.

26) Anaheim Ducks – Anaheim’s injuries are finally starting to catch up to them, getting absolutely shelled by the opposition in the process.

25) New Jersey Devils – The Devils are coming back to earth after a fast start.

24) Florida Panthers – Florida is perfectly mediocre, which is about what should be expected after the off-season they had.

23) Dallas Stars – The Stars are certainly a fearsome team, they’re just not getting the results at the moment.

22) Vancouver Canucks – Congratulations to the Canucks, they’re achieving perfect mediocrity.

21) Pittsburgh Penguins – The Penguins will be fine.

20) Edmonton Oilers – Edmonton plays such a strong team game, and although they do possess some deficiencies like any other team, they’re bound to rebound eventually.

19) Washington Capitals – Underlying numbers don’t paint the Capitals as a surefire Cup contender anymore. Their talent still matters a whole lot, however.

18) Colorado Avalanche – The Avs are probably really, really bad, but they’re managing to plug along in the standings.

17) Minnesota Wild – Everyone seems to be piling on the Wild right now, but they’re still capable of getting great looks like few other teams can.

16) Detroit Red Wings – If the Red Wings’ goal this season was to spin the hamster wheel of mediocrity, they sure are doing a great job of it.

15) Chicago Blackhawks – The Hawks look good, but these November days are presumably not their highest priority.

14) Vegas Golden Knights – For all the talk of the Knights falling off eventually, their underlying numbers indicate they might be better than we thought.

13) Montreal Canadiens – For all the drama in Montreal, the Canadiens are still out-shooting and out-chancing their opposition on a regular basis. That has to matter at some point, right?

12) Boston Bruins – Boston head coach Bruce Cassidy ought to be in the Jack Adams conversation.

11) New York Islanders – Speaking od Adams’ nominees, it’s time to start mentioning Doug Weight in that light.

10) Winnipeg Jets – The Jets are still red hot, although they might be due for some negative regression at some point.

9) Toronto Maple Leafs – Toronto is still the real deal.

8) Carolina Hurricanes – Carolina is loaded with talent, buoyed by a dominant even strength game, although their special teams leave a little to be desired.

7) Columbus Blue Jackets – I’ll keep banging this drum for the rest of the season: the Blue Jackets are Stanley Cup contenders.

6) Nashville Predators – Nashville’s hot right now, and although their underlying numbers may be a bit down, they remain in the league’s upper echelon thanks to their impressive collection of talent.

5) New York Rangers – The Rangers get a bump for some recent hot play, thanks in part to a very good penalty kill. It feels unlikely that they remain this high.

4) San Jose Sharks – Outside of a lackluster power play, the Sharks are basically great at every facet of the game. That’s a scary proposition for the rest of the West.

3) Calgary Flames – It took a while for Calgary to come on, but they look excellent as of late. We’ll see if that continues.

2) Tampa Bay Lightning – The Lightning continue to dominate, but they’re slowly being passed over by another team in this ranking.

1) St. Louis Blues – St. Louis has just about everything going for it right now: star talent, stellar underlying numbers, and superiority in the standings. They’re the best team in the NHL as of today.
