The Hockey Writers
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.
