NHL Power Rankings

Posted by Brentzky on February 8, 2013 at 5:20 AM

Click HERE for this week's NHL Power Rankings.


It was an interesting week as we saw many teams fall back down to Earth (and fall on my rankings). After their hot 7-0 start, the Sharks (#6) failed to win a game last week while scoring just 5 goals in their 3 games. In fact, neither Patrick Marleau or Joe Thornton registered a point.


The Blues (#12) were also winless last week and were outscored 16-5 in their three games. Brian Elliott has not been nearly as sharp as last season and Jaroslav Halak is still out of the lineup with a grion injury.


Biggest Risers:

Predators: Up 12, #21 to #9

Canucks: Up 8 #12 to #4

Ducks: Up 8 #13 to #5


Biggest Divers:

Wild: Down 13, #8 to #21

Blues: Down 9, #12 to #3

Sabres: Down 7, #26 to #19


NHL STAT OF THE WEEK: There have been 15 shootouts in the Western Conference and just 5 in the Eastern Conference (Predators have had 5 alone)

i think you've got the sabres a bit low and the wings a bit high, but its pretty good overall.

Most thought the Wild would be great with Parise and Suter. Now they've hit the wall and the fans booed after each period yesterday against the Canucks.

Still, this team is young and have a lot of, prospects that will mature. They're still 2-3 years away and the two big FA's signed long term deals. But fans want results now.

If it wasn't for Vanek who knows where the Sabres would be

Scurds thinks the Wings are too high? He also likely thinks they won't make the playoffs...... which they will..... easily...... Datsyuk and Z'berg will ensure that.....
