Rank Rank Last Week Team Record Last 10 The Skinny
1 1 8-0-1 8-0-1 The Panthers retain the top spot even though they lose head coach Joel Queneville. We'll see how long they can hang on.
2 3 8-0-0 8-0-0 A storm is coming and the coaching turmoil in Florida may see the Hurricanes leap quickly.
3 2 6-1-0 6-1-0 The oil stumbles against Philly but they beat the teams they shold beat.
4 5 6-1-0 6-1-0 Blues win 5 of their last 6, although they were all games they should have won.
5 9 5-0-3 5-0-3 Caps take advantage of two struggling teams in the Senators and Coyotes
6 14 6-1-1 6-1-1 Just like that, the Flames win 6 straight including shutout victories over Pittsburgh and Philly. There are two teams in Alberta having good seasons so far. Flames success could make it hard for mgmt at the trade deadline.
7 4 5-3-0 5-3-0 Minnesota stumbles against Nashville, Seattle and Colorado in tough week.
8 7 6-2-1 6-2-1 Rangers drop a spot after a light week and a loss to the Flames.
9 11 4-2-2 4-2-2 The Jets almost get the California sweep, except for an OT loss to the Sharks.
10 6 4-3-0 4-3-0 Bruins slip after losses to the Panthers and Hurricanes.
11 10 5-3-0 5-3-0 The Sharks fall after losing three straight, but a group of farm hands knock off the Jets.
12 15 5-2-1 5-2-1 How can you not cheer for Buffalo? Solid proof that hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard!
13 13 4-3-1 4-3-1 Lightning split their last four but they need to show some consistency if they want to climb the rankings.
14 18 4-4-1 4-4-1 Leafs clean things up and win 2-of-3 last week.
15 8 3-3-2 3-3-2 The Pens lose three straight last week and pay the price by falling 7 spots.
16 16 4-2-1 4-2-1 The quick start vaulted the Devils up the rankings, but their inconsistency keeps them in the midfield.
17 20 4-4-0 4-4-0 Wins over St Louis and Minnesota help the Avalanche scratch up the sheet, but they have to clean up things. A loss to the Knights was a missed opportunity.
18 24 4-2-1 4-2-1 The Flyers win two of three during a tough trip Western Canada, including a marquee victory over Edmonton.
19 19 5-3-0 5-3-0 Another inconsistent team that should be better than they are.
20 29 4-4-0 4-4-0 Three straight wins and the Predators are starting to emerge.
21 26 3-2-1 3-2-1 Wings split four games but are competitive in losses to Florida and Toronto.
22 21 3-2-2 3-2-2 The Islanders bookend a 5-day break with a win and a loss.
23 22 4-4-0 4-4-0 The Knights may be showing signs of life. Their three wins should have moved them up in the rankings. Eichel talk?? Seriously, that's like doubling down on a twelve
24 17 3-4-1 3-4-1 Three straight losses last week drop the Stars 7 spots.
25 25 3-4-3 3-4-3 The Ducks drop 3 straight before beating the lowly Canadiens on Halloween.
26 12 3-5-1 3-5-1 Losing three straight games at home, help the Canucks earn the biggest rankings drop of the week.
27 23 3-4-0 3-4-0 Ottawa still not showing the scoring to take them seriously.
28 29 3-5-1 3-5-1 The Kraken christen their new stadium with a pair of wins, bookended by a pair of losses.
29 27 3-5-1 3-5-1 We're still waiting to see what this team is capable of.
30 30 2-8-0 2-8-0 The Canadiens looked like aCup contender against San Jose, but then laid eggs. Coach Dominique Ducharme's job is safe for a little while longer.
31 31 0-7-2 0-7-2 Could a franchise have a worse week than the Blackhawks?
32 32 0-8-1 0-8-1 We're still not sure if this team will actually win a game this season.
