NHL 2016 Power Rankings and Playoff Picks

NHL 2016 Power Rankings and Playoff Picks >>

NHL west

Edmonton Oilers

The Oilers are a weak defensive team full of young talent that arguably didn’t live up to expectations in 2015. Can Connor McDavid, Jordan Eberle, Leon Draisaitl, Jesse Puljujarvi and Milan Lucic lead this team to the playoffs? Possibly. They’re certainly on the fringe.
Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks are a train wreck of mediocre goaltending and aging veterans without any solid prospects outside of Bo Horvat and Jake Virtanen. The team made weak offseason moves by trading Jared McCann, one of their few strong young players, for Erik Gudbranson and then paid way to much to acquire Loui Eriksson. This will surely be a disappointing season, and likely next few seasons, for fans in Vancouver.
Arizona Coyotes

This is a developing team with a ton of talented young players and a few solid veterans. However, the Coyotes are still in rebuilding mode and I don’t think anyone expects anything but a struggle for them to win games in 2016. Expect big things from Arizona in a few years, but for now don’t get your hopes up.
Colorado Avalanche

The Avalanche don’t have a terrible team but they have the misfortune of competing in the Central division. It’ll be interesting to see what new head coach, Jared Bednar, does with this team.
Winnipeg Jets

The Jets have been developing for the last few years and are on the verge of a breakout. They have a ton of young talent like Patrick Laine, Nikolaj Ehlers, Mark Scheifele and Jacob Trouba. If the Jets don’t make the playoffs in 2016 and keep their roster intact they’ll be a shoe-in for them in 2017.
Minnesotta Wild

This is a team that I see having the potential to go either way. They are a solid team that could easily make the playoffs. However, I could just as easily see them missing them. Zach Parise has trouble staying healthy and their younger players are still undeveloped. Whether new head coach Bruce Boudreau can lead this team to the playoffs is uncertain.
Calgary Flames x

The Flames have made a ton of offseason moves including hiring a new coach. The team is obviously looking to rebound after their terrible 2015 season. They have a ton of young talent that are on the verge of making the step into NHL stardom and, arguably, the number one goalie in Brian Elliot. There are a ton of reasons to expect a bounce-back season and playoff birth for the Flames in 2016.
Los Angeles Kings x

The Kings only lasted five games in the 2015 playoffs and didn’t make any waves this offseason. However, they still have one of the best rosters in the NHL. Kopitar and Toffoli are a dynamic force and Jonathan Quick is one of the most talented goalies in the NFl. They will all be integral pieces to this teams success in 2016.
St. Louis Blues x

The Blues were plagued by injuries in 2015 and still managed to win 49 games and get within 2 points of the division title. They’re a strong team that should continue to compete despite the loss of their captain, Brian Elliot and other key players like David Backes and Troy Brouwer.
Dallas Stars x

The Stars managed to win the Central Division in 2015, a division that contained three of the NHL’s top-five teams. They also did it without Tyler Seguin, one of their most valuable assets, in the final stretch. Sequin will be back this year along with Jamie Benn and Patrick Sharp. The line combination of these three stars combined for 94 goals and 217 points. Ducks fans have a lot to be excited about in 2016.
San Jose Sharks x

This team is full of young talent that keeps getting better and better. Furthermore, it has talented veterans to balance out its youth. Joe Thornton is coming off his best season in years. Martin Jones has emerged as one of the best goaltenders in the league after his impressive playoff performance including a 44-save game in game 5. This is a team that can easily make another deep run in 2016.
Nashville Predators x

This was an already talented team and then they acquired Subban in arguably the best trade of the offseason by any team in the NHL. This is a team that has a chance to really compete in 2016.
Annaheim Ducks y

After an inspiring turnaround in 2015 and going on to allow the fewest goals of all teams in the regular season (192) the Ducks traded their number 1 goalie this offseason. They also fired their coach Bruce Boudreau after losing in the first round of the playoffs to the Predators. The Ducks are still an impressive team defensively and should put up strong numbers in 2016.
Chicago Blackhawks z

There’s so much talent on this team it’s absurd. Between veteran superstar Patrick Kane and emerging 2015 rookie, soon-to-be star, Artemi Panarin, who scored 30 goals and had 47 assists in 2015, this team looks like the team to beat in the west.

Carolina Hurricanes

Despite finishing 6th in the division in 2015, this team is possibly the worst in the NHL. Aside from Jordan Stall and Jeff Skinner, they have no impact players and their defense lacks experience. Look for them at the bottom of the standings all year.
Buffalo Sabres

The Sabres are progressing but doing so slowly. They are not a playoff contender this year. While they have  a solid mix of fresh young talent and seasoned veterans, the team will continue to grow. However, temper your expectations. Wait a year or two and you’ll see the Sabres creep their way up the rankings.
Philadelphia Flyers

The Flyers shocked the world last year when they miraculously snuck their way into the playoffs. Expect a long fall back to earth as they will likely finish 7th in the Metropolitan. They lack a solid goalie and don’t have the talent elsewhere to compensate. The Flyers will not make the playoffs in 2016.
Columbus Blue Jackets

Its hard to know what to expect from this team. They’ve had too terrible seasons due to injuries and there’s no way to know if they’re ready to compete in 2016. If they can stay healthy, they have a chance. However, history proves that’s unlikely.
Toronto Maple Leafs

The Leafs are still developing and their future looks bright, but not this season. They have a ton of young talent like Auston Matthews, William Nylander, and Nikita Zaitsev. Furthermore they have a top-tier goalie in Frederick Andersen. This Leafs team will be better than last year but not good enough. Expect big things in 2017 and 18 but not in 2016.
Ottawa Senators

The Senators have been quiet this offseason aside from adding Derek Brassard and a new head coach, Guy Boucher. This team could go either way. I could see them sneaking into a wild card spot, but more likely I see them falling somewhere near 4th or 5th in the Atlantic and missing the playoffs.
Boston Bruins

Trading Tyler Sequin will haunt this team forever. They will continue to be terrible in 2016 and I’m glad for it.
New York Islanders x

Losing Okposo is going to hurt this team more than they expect. They can’t leave it all up to Tavares and their additions of Ladd and Parenteau are weak moves at best. The Islanders have a tough year ahead of them.
New Jersey Devils x

The Devils are going to come out swinging and surprise everyone this season. Cory Schneider is one of the best goalies in the league and the addition of Taylor Hall will give them the offensive power they needed. This is a team that is ready to compete.
Detroit Red Wings x

The Red Wings were very good last year and they have essentially the same roster in 2016 except for the loss of Datsyuk and the additions of Vanek and Nielson. In all likelihood, these subtle roster moves will probably hurt the Red Wings, but they are still good enough to wrangle a wild card spot as they have done for the last 25+ years in a row.
Rangers x

The Rangers are closing in on their finals days of being a playoff contender with their current roster. Most of their impact players like Rick Nash, Lundqvist and Girardi are at the ends of their careers. The Rangers haven’t drafted well in the last few years and they will begin to feel the impact of those mistakes in the coming years. This may be their last true shot at a deep run.
Tamp Bay Lightning x

The Lightning managed to make a deep playoff run in 2015 despite a roster plagued with injuries all season long. The team is loaded with stars and will have no trouble competing in this division. The team is loaded with talent and depth, but Nikita Kucherov will be the guy to watch in Tampa after he led the team in goals and points in 2015.
Washington Capitols x

The Caps had an impressive 56 win 2015 regular season that was good enough for 8th most in NHL history. They, however, were knocked out of the playoffs in round two by the Penguins. Expect Ovechkin, Oshie, and Kuznetsov to come back with a vengeance in 2016.
Pittsburgh Penguins y

Mike Sullivan turned this team around halfway through the 2015 season and led them to a 14-2-0 run in their last 16 games. The Penguins are a fast team full of top tier veterans including captain, Sidney Crosby, who proved he’s still one of the best on the ice with a late season streak. They also have a budding crop of young dynamic players including Bryan Rust, Conor Sheary and Matt Murray. This is a team with both talent and depth and should be at the top of the standings for years to come if they can stay healthy.
Florida Panthers x

The Panthers had a franchise record season in 2015 with 47 wins and 103 points. This team will look to build on that momentum as its younger players gained valuable experience in their short playoff contention. The loss of Brian Campbell will be felt, but Jaromir Jagr is coming off a tremendous season in 2015 and should continue to be a scoring threat in Florida.
Montreal Canadiens p

This Habs team is a contender for most improved team in the division. The additions of Weber, Radulov, and Shaw will make dynamic changes in their performance. Furthermore, they still have Carey Price. This is a powerful team that will be tough to beat. Expect big things from the Habs in 2016.

2016 NHL Playoffs Predictions: Caps Ducks Stanley Cup

2016 NHL Playoffs Predictions: Caps Ducks Stanley Cup

2016 NHL Playoffs Predictions: Anaheim Ducks vs Washington Capitals Stanley Cup

The Anaheim Ducks had one of the worst starts I can remember for an elite team. We lost some money early in the year, as I had them picked to dominate the West. That said, we got off them quick, they sorted things out, and they somehow won the division. With that kind of momentum, I like the Anaheim Ducks to win the Stanley Cup this year. I just don’t trust an Alexander Ovechkin Washington Capitals team. Here are the rest of our 2016 NHL Playoffs Predictions:
First Round Western Conference
Dallas Stars Vs Minnesota Wild: The Wild are one of the streakiest teams in hockey. They make me nervous. They can win a series and be dominant, or they can lose a series and look silly. For me, I’m going with consistency here. The Dallas Stars are the better team and they have shown it nearly all season. I think they will take out an inconsistent Wild team that lacks the depth and consistency necessary for a deep playoff run.
Stars in 5
St. Louis Blues vs Chicago Blackhawks: The lone blemish last year is that I questioned the Chicago Blackhawks. I like the Blues, I like their defense, I like their goalie, I like their system. Chicago just knows how to win. I think it would be a mistake to write them off, and I’ll trust their experience and offensive firepower to guide them through this series.
Blackhawks in 7
Anaheim Ducks vs Nashville Predators: I love the Predators. As with the Blues, I like their defense and goaltending. This year, they’ve had some offense as well. Unfortunately, they draw the best team in hockey for this one. I think the Ducks will win this series comfortably.
Ducks in 5
LA Kings vs San Jose Sharks: I don’t trust Pete DeBoer and this Sharks team. They were wildly inconsistent. That said, this is a fun series where Martin Jones returns to his old team with one thing on his mind – vengeance. The LA Kings have been there before and I like their goaltending and defense. The question is, quite simply, can the Kings score. Against a sloppy Sharks team and with home ice advantage, I think the answer is yes.
Kings in 6
First Round Eastern Conference
Washington Capitals vs Philadelphia Flyers: I hate the Flyers. As hard as it is to trust a Washington Capitals team that has failed to put it all together every single year under Alexander Ovechkin’s leadership, I think they dominate an inferior team here.
Caps in 4
Pittsburgh Penguins vs New York Rangers: It sounds funny to say it, but I just don’t think it’s the New York Rangers’ year. They have some top-end offensive talent, the names on defense seem to be pretty elite, and they have a goalie that, while he hasn’t won anything, is capable of stealing games singlehandedly. The Penguins are just too hot right now.
Penguins in 5
Florida Panthers vs New York Islanders: Given the goalie situation in New York and the mediocre play down the stretch, I like the Florida Panthers. This is a fun organization with an infusion of young talent that finally got a goalie. I expect them to be competitive this year.
Panthers in 5
Tampa Bay Lightning vs Detroit Red Wings: The Red Wings played well down the stretch and made the playoffs for the 20 millionth time in a row. That said, the Tampa Bay Lightning have goaltending, offense, and have been the better team all year. I think they will light up the Red Wings here.
Lightning in 6
Second Round:
Dallas Stars vs Chicago Blackhawks: Again, I don’t really see anything particularly spectacular about the Blackhawks, but the Stars don’t blow me away either. The top line for Chicago might be too much for Dallas here, and experience could be decisive.
Blackhawks in 6
Anaheim Ducks vs LA Kings: The LA Kings do not have enough offense to win this series. I think both teams are strong defensively, but the Ducks have way more depth up front. I think they will skate circles around the Kings, and they should be able to knock out their division rivals here.
Ducks in 6
Washington Capitals vs Pittsburgh Penguins: Remember when Sidney Crosby vs Alexander Ovechkin was supposed to be a modern day rivalry for the ages? Though it never really materialized beyond the concussions and nonsense, this series has the potential to give the rivalry new meaning. I think the Caps are the deeper, better team, but the Penguins have been playing incredible hockey. I’m basically banking on a goaltending and defense meltdown again in Pittsburgh.
Caps in 7
Florida Panthers vs Tampa Bay Lightning: I like the Lightning here. It’s hard to get over how sexy and explosive this team can be. The Panthers have some pieces and had a fantastic regular season. Here though, I think the Lightning are built for playoff success.
Lightning in 6
Conference Finals:
Anaheim Ducks vs Chicago Blackhawks: The Anaheim Ducks are the better team. I trust their goaltending, I like their offensive depth, and I think this is their year. The Chicago Blackhawks just have too many holes. By this point they might look like a snowball rolling down the side of a mountain, but I think the Ducks just have too much talent.
Ducks in 5
Washington Capitals vs Tampa Bay Lightning: Again, I like the Bolts and it’s hard to trust the Caps after so many years of playoff misery. Still, the Capitals are the better team. I think the Caps defense and goaltending can slow down the Lightning. I’m not sure the opposite is true.
Caps in 6
Stanley Cup Finals Prediction:
Anaheim Ducks vs Washington Capitals: I think the Ducks are the best team in hockey. I think they have the most depth across the board. While I think the Caps had a phenomenal year and these two teams stand out in a weak field this year, I think the Ducks are simply the better team. The Caps backed into the playoffs and I think it finally catches up with them here.
