NHL 2021-22 Power Rankings: Week 1-2

Welcome to the first edition of my weekly NHL Power Rankings for The Hockey Writers, where the top half of the league is evaluated. These rankings will focus on how the teams have performed in the past week of play and significantly factor in the overall strength of the team and where they are at the time in the standings. Technically, the 2021-22 season has been on for two weeks now, but at this point last week, certain teams had only played one game, which is why I chose to start this new series now instead. With that being said, let’s take a look at the top 16 teams in the league at this moment.

Hello, folks. The 2021-22 season is here and, much like the New York Rangers, we brought in some heavy-hitters during the offseason. But, you know, our new writers won’t end up in the red in penalty differential or get a bunch of fighting majors. Probably. I don’t know. What I do know is that we are really excited about the new additions to our staff and what it means for Banter’s content moving forward.
