FOX SPORTS NHL POWER RANKINGS

1

Blues

Last year was no flash in the pan. Alex Pietrangelo is a budding defensive superstar, while Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz will be ready to crack the lineup of the league’s stiffest forecheck and hardest working team. Get the ice bags ready when matching up against centers David Backes and Patrik Berglund.
2

Rangers

There’s an awfully nice mix of playmaking ability, goal scoring, and, most of all, toughness. The Rangers will be among the tougher NHL teams to play, night in and night out, making them the favorites to come out of the East.
3

Kings

Minor questions over injuries to Anze Kopitar, Willie Mitchell and Jonathan Quick will be answered relatively soon, but excellent depth will keep the Cup champs from sliding much in the standings.

Editor’s Note: I beg to differ.
