Fan Fuel: Canadian NHL power rankings – Week 7

WIth three losses in three games, it was a rough week for the Vancouver Canucks.


The Montreal Canadiens continue their dominance, the Maple Leafs are nipping at their heels and for what he’s given to the Calgary Flames, I hope Jarome Iginla finds a new home and has a long run into the playoffs.

1. Montreal Canadiens (last week: 1)

Well what can I say; this team just doesn’t stop winning. They went into Tampa Bay and Florida to work on their tans and left with four points. If it wasn’t for the Chicago Blackhawks great start, the Canadiens could very well be the team in first place overall.

2. Toronto Maple Leafs (last week: 4)

Hello, big jump from last week in my rankings. Missed out on a couple of wins, but they did manage to pick up important points to stay in the playoff hunt.

3. Ottawa Senators (last week: 2)

The Senators split their only two games this past week. With more off days than game days the team can sure use the rest.

4. Vancouver Canucks (last week: 3)

Wow is this team in turmoil or what? Three games, three losses. Sure they got one point vs. the Sharks, but they still lost. Seeing that no team will trade for Roberto Luongo, should the Canucks trade Cory Schneider?

5. Winnipeg Jets (last week: 5)

Not a bad week for the Jets. They split their four games, but managed to grab points in three of them. They are looking ahead to future bookings and are holding on tight to the fifth spot in my rankings.

6. Edmonton Oilers (last week: 7)

I recant anything I said at the beginning of the year concerning the Oilers making the playoffs. Even though they beat the Blackhawks, the Oilers still have a lot of ground to cover.

7. Calgary Flames (last week: 6)

This Flames team won’t be moving too far from the basement of my power rankings this year. Forward Jarome Iginla needs to finally put himself first. Supply GM Jay Feaster with a list of teams and hope for the best in a trade.
