The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / NHL North Division Power Rankings(3/11/21)

NHL North Division Power Rankings(3/11/21)

Power Rankings!
Publish Date: 03/12/2021
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

This was a tough week for me. I think there is arguments to be made at the bottom, top, and middle this week. Let’s see if I got my rankings right this week.

 

  1. Calgary Flames: 11-12-3 Overall (1-1-1 In The Last Week) (-1)

 

The Flames continue to be consistent at one thing…Being inconsistent. Many Flames fans have been clamoring for a coaching change for weeks now and it has finally happened. Darryl Sutter returns to Calgary to try and turn this team around. I’m not so sure it was the coach’s fault as this core is now on to their 5th coach. So we will see what Sutter can do with this group. I would almost guarantee at the very least we’re going to see a faster moving, harder-working team. let’s see if Sutter can carry the Flames out of my power rankings basement.

 

  1. Ottawa Senators: 9-18-1 Overall (1-2-0 In The Last Week) (-1)

 

Ottawa continues to be competitive and hard-working. I could have kept them in the fifth spot but just feel like the team that slides in there had too good of a week not to move them up. I don’t see much that they did wrong per se this week and I think they will continue to give every Canadian team fits with their workman-like attitude and as their young studs continue to get more comfortable, it’s going to get even harder.

 

  1. Vancouver Canucks: 12-15-2 Overall (3-0-0 In The Last Week) (+2)

 

The Canucks found their game against the Leafs early in the week and managed to pull off a win against the Habs late in the week. It was the best seven days of the Canucks season so far and I have rewarded them for it. They managed to play pretty well even without Pettersson in the lineup and Thatcher Demko has looked great recently. He has clearly won the starting job from Braden Holtby. Let’s see if the Canucks can make a playoff push despite being quite a few games ahead of the teams they are battling with.

 

  1. Montreal Canadiens: 11-6-7 Overall (1-0-2 In The Last Week) (–)

 

I feel like the Canadiens have played well since the coaching change but are cursed in extra time. 0-7 In overtime or a shootout this season is nuts. Carey Price has been excellent his past three starts, I never had any doubt he would find his game. A very typical start to the season followed with finding his game. It’s a repeating story. I think Montreal is in a fine spot but they need to figure out how to close out games. The new Kotkaniemi, Anderson, Toffoli line has looked very dangerous as well. I think Montreal and Edmonton are very close in my rankings and I could have flip flopped them if I had seen just a little more.

 

  1. Edmonton Oilers: 16-11-0 Overall (2-1-0 In The Last Week) (–)

 

Edmonton got thumped by Toronto a week ago but has since rattled off a couple of 3-2 wins. Connor McDavid took over in their big win over Calgary on Saturday, that was a fun game to watch. I’m still worried about this team if McDavid and Draisaitl are shut down as we saw with Toronto but like I’ve said before, they are good enough because of those two to make the playoffs. No need for movement this week but Montreal is right on their back.

 

  1. Winnipeg Jets: 16-8-1 Overall (2-1-0 In The Last Week) (–)

 

This was a tough one for me. The Jets have been so good lately and the team at the top has stumbled but the 7-1 loss to Montreal this week stopped me from putting Winnipeg on the top of my rankings. I think this is as good of a team as any in the North, especially with that forward group. The Jets work so hard and are so skilled. Another good week from them and they could find themselves at the top of my rankings.

 

1.Toronto Maple Leafs: 18-7-2 Overall (1-3-0 In The Last Week) (–)

 

Because of how good Toronto has been I gave them the benefit of the doubt this week but Winnipeg is right there. Toronto has hit a low point in the season losing two straight to Vancouver and falling to Winnipeg the other night as well. I’m not too worried about the Leafs because of the lead they have built but I do wonder about getting complacent if they don’t have to play meaningful games down the stretch. We will see how they respond to this three-game losing streak.

 

I had to think long and hard about not moving anyone around in the top four but I think I made the right decision. The bottom three teams shuffle and could continue to do so next week. Thanks for reading!
