SB Nation's NHL Preseason Power Rankings

Tired of the completely subjective power rankings written by just one independent and (possibly) biased writer? Do the ESPN rankings make absolutely no sense to you?

SB Nation's NHL Power Rankings is the culmination of a network-wide poll from across all of our hockey blogs. Each week we'll have the Top Ten NHL teams according to our writers, as well as full rankings for each conference.

With the NHL season officially kicking off tonight, here are our initial rankings of every NHL team. We'll present our weekly rankings every Tuesday throughout the season.
