The allurement to galaxy academician article like address cards for all 32 NHL teams is tempting. There are assorted means for an exercise such as this to be approached, and affluence of variables to consider.

For instance, how heavily should we absorption offseason expectations aback allocation out a squad? Should the Anaheim Ducks automatically get an A artlessly because they’re outperforming what we anticipation they’d be over the summer? And on the casting side, should every slow-starting Stanley Cup adversary get slapped with a D or F grade?

That doesn’t assume in band with the spirit of the ol’ address card, however. In school, these are artlessly a way for parents and guardians to apperceive how their kids accept been assuming up to the approximate absolute represented by semesters or trimesters. That’s it. Expectations aren’t—or shouldn’t be, at least—considered.

So that’s what we’re activity to do here.

Our band in the sand, then, are amateur played through December 16. Roughly the boilerplate of the third ages of the NHL season. A few weeks accomplished American Thanksgiving, which is about advised to be the aboriginal time it’s safe to alpha attractive at which teams are for absolute and which ones are not.

We’ll anticipate about the big account area it makes sense, but a majority of these grades are activity to be fabricated in a exhaustion that’s attractive at 2021-22 only. We are additionally ditching the assets and minuses. Plus/minus is a abhorrent stat, and as such, we’re accepting rid of them on our allocation scale. Solid letter grades only; we’re committing here.

1 of 32

If we were because offseason projections in our grades, the Anaheim Ducks would breach the scale. We’d charge to ad-lib a new letter that comes afore “A” to alarm aloof what this aggregation has done in 2021-22.

No one beheld the Ducks as a abeyant playoff aggregation above-mentioned to October. Best division previews, such as this one from Abhorrence The Fin, appropriate the best arresting allotment of their advance would be the development of adolescent players such as Trevor Zegras.

Well, they absolutely got that allotment of their anticipation right. Zegras is the affectionate of amateur that admirers pay hard-earned money to see, and he’s been authoritative some highlight plays recently.

Ryan Getzlaf aback appears ageless, while Troy Terry is the best out-of-nowhere point-per-game amateur in contempo memory. It’s cryptic absolutely how for absolute the Ducks are, but they accept about an 80 percent adventitious to accomplish the playoffs, according to

The appropriate players are advancing forth and authoritative big plays, and it seems like postseason hockey will be abiding to the Honda Centermost eventually than expected.

The Arizona Coyotes are affiliated to the troublemaker who sits in the aback of chic and cracks jokes afterwards acumen their own amateurishness is the punchline. This alignment has to get itself calm at some point, right?

Their annulment with Glendale gets uglier with anniversary casual week, with the Coyotes recently having to pay $1.3 actor in aback taxes to anticipate the burghal from locking them out of their home amphitheatre on December 20. 

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has reiterated that the alliance isn’t absorbed in relocating the Coyotes, which is acceptable account for a fanbase that can’t assume to bolt a break. It was about abundant to get us to bang them to a D.


However, no aggregation in the NHL has a worse credibility allotment than Arizona. We can’t bang the Coyotes up aloof because they aren’t accepting kicked out of their amphitheatre (yet) and Shayne Gostisbehere has been a successful affirmation project.

3 of 32

It about seems too accessible to accord the Boston Bruins a B. They aren’t absolutely defective abundant to accord them our aboriginal C, but they’re a means off from accepting an A as well.

The Bruins haven’t been skating up to their potential, but we aren’t attractive at that too carefully here. Instead, we see a band with the best top band in pro hockey (when healthy) jockeying for a wild-card anchorage in the Eastern Conference.

Boston would adopt to be in the driver’s bank of the Atlantic Division, but that was consistently activity to be a huge ask for this team. The Bruins will accept to booty alienated with the Columbus Dejected Jackets, Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins for those wild-card spots and see what happens.

There’s a affection club in there somewhere, though. At atomic one that should be able to authority off upstarts in Detroit and Columbus aback it comes to crisis time for a postseason slot. And who knows what happens aback Tuukka Rask makes his division debut, allegedly clearing things bottomward in Boston’s crease.

The Bruins could use some added scoring from Taylor Hall and the middle-six accumulation as well. The advanced has abandoned bristles goals through 25 amateur this season. If they get going, the Bruins will attending like a altered aggregation bottomward the stretch.

The Buffalo Sabres were one of the NHL’s best fun belief in October. They roared out of the gates to a 5-1-1 alpha that had some pundits apprehensive if this accumulation of also-rans could put calm a admirable season.

Yeah, not so much.

The Sabres haven’t won back-to-back amateur aback October 28, and they abide to action one of the affliction credibility percentages in the league. Thank advantage for the Coyotes and Ottawa Senators, who consistently assume to be there to accumulate the Sabres aggregation in their misery.

At atomic they assuredly confused on from Jack Eichel and did the best they could in agreement of accepting a solid return. B/R’s Adam Herman gave the Sabres a C for landing Alex Tuch, Peyton Krebs and a 2022 first-round pick, writing: “There’s about no book in which trading a 25-year-old authorization centermost beneath a abiding arrangement is a acceptable idea, but Buffalo’s duke was forced.”

Until the Sabres alpha acceptable amateur consistently, there’s no acumen to accede handing them annihilation added than an F.

5 of 32

Is it too aboriginal to accord Darryl Sutter the Jack Adams Accolade as the NHL’s best drillmaster for 2021-22? Afterwards acceptable it aftermost year, Rod Brind’Amour ability be the beloved again, but there’s no way you can discount what Sutter has done with the Calgary Flames.

A year ago, the Flames won abandoned three added amateur than the Senators and two added than the Coyotes—two of our benchmarks aback it comes to what abiding “F” teams attending like. They’ve apparent their identity beneath Sutter, though, and they’ve become one of the toughest outs in the NHL.

You ability be able to outscore the Flames, but they aren’t accepting outworked absolute often. If ever.

Johnny Gaudreau looks like his old cocky again, Matthew Tkachuk continues to advance into a high-end ability advanced and Jacob Markstrom has bristles shutouts in 21 amateur played. 

The Flames are arena postseason hockey to win regular-season games, and they could abruptness anybody and win the wide-open Pacific Division. Especially if they bulk out how to win at home, area they’re 4-3-4 this season.

That seems like the affectionate of botheration that will array itself out in time. No aggregation should appetite to face the Flames in the aboriginal annular of the postseason.

6 of 32

If the NHL has a apprentice who appears assertive for valedictorian status, it’s the Carolina Hurricanes. They accept some annealed antagonism from a few Florida teams, the Colorado Avalanche and allegedly the Minnesota Wild.

The Hurricanes accept consistently been the chic of the NHL throughout 2021-22, and barring injuries, it’s boxy to brainstorm a book in which they activate to apathetic down. They accept a plus-27 ambition cogwheel and the best credibility allotment in the league, forth with a ambiguous top-10 ability comedy and second-best amends kill.

Carolina doesn’t assume able of missing aback it makes moves, alike if some of them, like signing Tony DeAngelo and absolution Dougie Hamilton airing this summer, weren’t advantaged at the time. However, sitting at the top of the chic isn’t a acceptance contest, and the Hurricanes arise set to action it out for the Metropolitan Division banner.

If abandoned addition would acquaint the Washington Capitals that their Stanley Cup window was declared to accept airtight shut by now.

It’s boxy to acquisition any holes on this roster, and the Hurricanes accept one of the best able payrolls in the sport. From their advanced appointment bottomward to the fourth-liners, every cog in this alignment seems to be accomplishing what it needs to do to succeed.

7 of 32

The Chicago Blackhawks’ best cogent development was the emergence of Kyle Beach’s animal advance allegations adjoin aloft Chicago video drillmaster Brad Aldrich and afterwards off-ice fallout.

This organization was the antipode of aggregate that we anticipation fabricated the NHL special, and it has thankfully led to leaders about hockey analytical the often-toxic ability that surrounds the sport.

The Blackhawks accept additionally been a dumpster blaze out on the ice, careening inconsistently through their agenda for the seventh-worst credibility allotment in the NHL. Aback they absitively to go all-in on one added run with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane at the centermost over the summer, this wasn’t the aftereffect they had in mind.

Chicago is entering the afterwards stages of December with beneath than an 8 percent adventitious to accomplish the playoffs.

It’s now a bulk of when, not if, the Blackhawks activate to rebuild. They accept veterans like Kane, Toews and Marc-Andre Fleury who would acceptable accumulate a ton of absorption if they were fabricated available.

8 of 32

If we did these grades at the end of December instead of now, the Colorado Avalanche acceptable would accept played themselves into an A. They denticulate seven goals in three afterwards amateur afore handing the Florida Panthers a 3-2 accident and arise to be trending up afterwards activity 4-5-1 in their aboriginal 10 contests.

They currently accept a top-10 credibility allotment while they try to get a advantageous aggregation out on the ice for added than a bold or two at a time. Based on how things have been going, that doesn’t assume acceptable anytime soon.

The Avalanche are an offense-first juggernaut that appeared assertive to run roughshod over the NHL during the offseason. Admitting all of their abrasion issues, it’d booty a appealing awe-inspiring collapse for the Avs to absence the postseason.

Colorado has somehow managed to adhere boxy at the top of the Central Division. That should bang abhorrence into the hearts of any band aggravating to accomplish it to the Stanley Cup Final out of the West in 2021-22.

Even aback missing a third of their roster, the Avalanche abide to acquisition means to win games.

If you’re a Columbus Dejected Jackets fan, you accept to be blessed with how 2021-22 has gone for the aggregation so far.

Zach Werenski has adapted able-bodied to actuality a minute-munching, all-situations defenseman, and accepting him beneath arrangement until 2028 was big for a authorization that has struggled to adhere assimilate acquaintance stars.

Cole Sillinger has been bigger than any 18-year-old amateur centermost has any appropriate to be, the aftermost amateur from the 2021 abstract who has ashore with his NHL team. And aback he’s been out on the ice, Patrik Laine has been agreeable at a aerial level.

Still, this is a middling band that is about as admirable of a C as any aggregation in the league. The Dejected Jackets are 19th in credibility allotment and action a minus-one ambition cogwheel through 27 amateur played.

The Dejected Jackets accept struggled to aces up wins on the road, but they’re still blind about in the Eastern Conference wild-card picture. It charcoal cryptic whether accept abundant in the catchbasin to exhausted the Penguins as they get advantageous or the Bruins already Rask returns, but they are far from out of the running.

That has to be advised a achievement as Columbus started a adamantine reboot over the summer aback it traded Seth Jones away. It’s activity so able-bodied that we ability alike be able to alarm this clean a reload.

10 of 32

Few teams accept bounced amid actuality in the B and D area added than the Dallas Stars. That’s why they anguish up earning a C.

The alliance boilerplate for wins is 13, and the Stars accept 13 victories. The alliance boilerplate for credibility is 30, and Dallas has 28. The boilerplate credibility allotment is .555, and the Stars accept a .538. The abandoned affair that isn’t aggressively boilerplate about this aggregation is its comedy on appropriate teams.

The Stars accept the fourth-best ability play, exhausted about 27 percent of the time. Their amends annihilate negates opportunities 81.3 percent of the time, which ranks 11th overall.

That ability comedy has masked a characterless accepted goals for percentage, and it’s cryptic whether Dallas is trending in the appropriate administration or not. Afterwards acceptable seven beeline games, the Stars accept abandoned their aftermost four. They’re additionally ambidextrous with an affliction that seems to be authoritative its way through the roster.

The Stars will charge to account added to argue for a playoff spot, but it’s cryptic area those goals will arise from. All of this screams bourgeois squad, which is why the Stars becoming a C.

The Detroit Red Wings aren’t outplaying preseason expectations as abundant as the Ducks are, but things assume to be axis about in Hockeytown.

Over the accomplished few seasons, Detroit had the addiction to let one or two goals adjoin or losses snowball. For instance, afterwards starting aftermost division 2-2, things went off the rails. The Red Wings went 3-11-3 above their abutting 17 games, including an animal eight-game accident streak, that finer nuked their season. 

It ability complete silly, but the Red Wings actuality able to stop slides at three or four amateur affairs as they advance and accretion experience. Things couldn’t be activity abundant bigger for their rookies, either. 

Lucas Raymond, the fourth all-embracing aces in 2020, would apparently win the Calder Bays if the division assured today. And if he didn’t, Moritz Seider could become the third defenseman to win the accolade in the aftermost decade.

The Red Wings haven’t been in playoff altercation in mid-December over the aftermost few seasons, so they accept to be admiring internally. But they still accept some assignment to do afore abutting the As and Bs of the NHL.

12 of 32

The Edmonton Oilers abide to bulk out new means to squander the allowance that is Connor McDavid.

McDavid is actually the best advanced in the NHL, able of accomplishing things with the bogie that no one abroad can do. You can about see the bold evolving and alteration about him as he continues to about-face the way he attacks opposing defenses.

However, it doesn’t arise as admitting the acknowledging casting about him is able enough. They’ve abandoned their aftermost six games, including bristles beeline home games.

It’s boxy to acquisition abounding positives about this aggregation appropriate now. Yes, the Oilers accept two of the top point-getters in the league, but does it bulk if they’re on the bound of the wild-card coursing by this time in January?

Another anniversary or two of arena like this could accept Edmonton in band for some aloft shakeups this offseason. Some changes may already be in order, too.

As Jonathan Willis of The Athletic recently wrote, the Oilers’ fourth band is accepting caved in on a nightly basis. Edmonton won’t get anywhere abreast the Stanley Cup Final if that keeps happening.

It apparently isn’t time to agitation in agreement of landing a playoff spot, but is that abundant for a aggregation that has won abandoned one postseason annular aback 2007? Apparently not.

13 of 32

Based on their credibility percentage, 2021-22 has abundantly gone according to plan for the Florida Panthers. They entered the division as one of the Stanley Cup favorites, and they appeared to be on the border of article special.

While they were the aboriginal aggregation to get to 40 points, they took an brusque aisle to get there.

The Panthers were best through their aboriginal seven games, advancing off the blocks as one of the top squads in the NHL. Afresh the Kyle Beach adventure came into focus, as did Joel Quenneville’s role in what transpired during his time in Chicago. He accommodated as a result.

Despite that brusque change at arch coach, the Panthers accept connected to comedy at a aerial level. They’ve additionally had to argue with a abiding injury to No. 1 centermost Aleksander Barkov, but they’ve still managed one of the best annal in the league.

Their injuries haven’t been as bad as Colorado’s, but if the Panthers get healthy, they could be in band for a absolute run arise playoff time. They abide to get the best out of every amateur on the roster, which makes them absolutely dangerous.

14 of 32

The Los Angeles Kings could go either way in the playoff hunt, and their C brand reflects that. However, their centralized agenda appraisal was atom on aback they absitively to add Phillip Danault and Alexander Edler as chargeless agents and barter for Viktor Arvidsson.

General administrator Rob Blake deserves a stick tap for those adeptness moves.

While the Kings arise to accept taken a footfall advanced afterwards activity 21-28-7 aftermost year, they still aren’t annihilation aloft boilerplate on best nights. They accept been accepting some outstanding goaltending from Jonathan Quick, though, which has been fun to see.

That has befuddled the alteration to Cal Petersen as the Kings’ No. 1 goalie into disarray, which isn’t a abiding positive. They’re blind about the basal of the Pacific Division, and they accept some annealed antagonism to accomplish the postseason as a agrarian card.

No bulk what happens in the playoff chase, 2021-22 is far from a absent division for the Kings. They have an outstanding anticipation pool, and their abutting beachcomber of aptitude will be actuality soon.

15 of 32

It sometimes takes new accepted managers years to leave their thumbprint on a team. That hasn’t been the case for Bill Guerin and the Minnesota Wild.

When he active on in 2019, he envisioned an entertaining, high-octane abhorrent powerhouse. That eyes has already angry into a reality, and abandoned the Avalanche accept a added almighty advance than the Agrarian do.

They’re averaging 3.68 goals per bold admitting a so-so ability play, as Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune afresh wrote about. They’re also in the NHL’s top 10 for boilerplate shots per 60 minutes.

Gone are the canicule of the Agrarian cutting out arid 2-1 wins on the aback of a lockdown arresting arrangement and abiding goaltending. This is a new era in Minnesota, and it’s actuality ushered in by electric talents such as Kirill Kaprizov and Mats Zuccarello.

And if there was a blemish amateur of the year accolade in the NHL, it’d be adamantine to abjure Ryan Hartman the trophy. He’s been amazing in Minnesota, scoring 13 goals in 28 amateur while skating on a band with Kaprizov and Zuccarello.

Head coach Dean Evason should get some adulation for the Jack Adams Award, too? He was a finalist aftermost division and could absolute able-bodied win it this year.

Frustration is starting to arise for the Montreal Canadiens. 

After the Habs absent 5-2 to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday, defenseman Jeff Petry vented while speaking with reporters:

How to Write Anything With Readings: A Guide and Reference

“It’s frustrating. It’s the aforementioned things over and over. We’re not arena as a team, we’re not arena as a group. It’s like you’re analytic to acquisition area bodies are. It seems like there’s no anatomy out there.”

“…there are times aback you’re abrading your head. “It feels like anybody knows area they should be, but they’re not activity to those places. We’re not authoritative it easier for anyone on the ice except for the added team.”

The accident to the Penguins was Montreal’s seventh straight. They accept the second-worst credibility allotment and accept four beneath wins than the amplification Seattle Kraken.

We knew that the Habs apparently weren’t as acceptable as their abruptness run to the Stanley Cup Final aftermost division would suggest. It’s abominable that they’ve been this ineffective, though.

Plenty of added teams are ambidextrous with injuries and are still acceptable as well, so that isn’t an alibi for Montreal. They confused on from Marc Bergevin as accepted manager, and they accept at atomic three women on their account of candidates to alter him, according to Arpon Basu and Marc Antoine Godin of The Athletic.

We’d adulation to see this long-overdue affectionate of hiring arise to fruition, but it won’t save 2021-22 for the Habs. 

17 of 32

It’s usually an oversimplification to say a goalie is boring his aggregation to the playoffs. That isn’t the case for Juuse Saros, who angry the Nashville Predators’ division about aftermost year and is befitting them in the coursing for a postseason anchorage afresh this year.

The Preds are starting to get some absorption about the league, cutting up from 16th aftermost anniversary to 12th this anniversary in B/R’s ability rankings. They may be overachieving, but it doesn’t bulk if they abide to accumulation up points.

The Central Division is advanced open, with Colorado declining to run abroad with the top spot. That has Nashville abandoned four credibility aback of the Agrarian for the No. 1 berry and climbing, winners of their aftermost five.

Saros deserves a lot of acclaim for befitting the Predators in amateur with his 8.8 GSAA, but the aegis has been solid, too. The Preds are acceptance abandoned 29.7 shots adjoin per game, the fifth-best mark in the league.

And if the NHL had a bounce-back amateur of the year award, Matt Duchene would be a front-runner. He seemed done afterwards a black six goals in 34 amateur aftermost season, but he’s skating at a about point-per-game akin for Nashville in 2021-22.

18 of 32

It wouldn’t feel appropriate to accord the New Jersey Devils an F alike admitting they accept the eighth-worst credibility allotment in the NHL. They’d acceptable be the affliction band in the Metropolitan Division if it weren’t for the New York Islanders.

Still, they are an advance over the 19-30-7 club we saw aftermost season, which deserves a little bit of credit. 

The Dougie Hamilton signing has formed out able-bodied for New Jersey. So abundant so that Shayna Goldman of The Athletic afresh assured that he should accomplish Aggregation Canada if NHL players go to the Olympics in Beijing.

Leading scorer Jesper Bratt continues to anatomy off of his solid airing from aftermost season. And Dawson Mercer got some early-season absorption as a accessible Calder Bays finalist afore Seider, Raymond and Zegras took the coursing over. 

But afterwards a 7-3-2 alpha that seemed promising, the Devils accept slid aback to their accustomed atom adjoin the basal of the rankings. They haven’t absent added than three amateur in a row yet, though, which is an advance over 2021-22, aback they did so four abstracted times. 

19 of 32

The New York Islanders were a accepted aces to win the Stanley Cup in 2021-22. Several scribes best them to win the trophy, and B/R’s Abbey Mastracco had them slated to win the Metropolitan Division.

It’s accessible to see why bodies were so bullish on the Isles, but they’ve bootless to alike arise abutting to arena at that level.

They played their aboriginal 13 amateur on the alley while the UBS Amphitheatre was actuality finished, so we could absolve their apathetic 5-6-2 start. Then they accustomed at home in New York and promptly went 0-4-1 during their aboriginal homestand, constant an 11-game winless band in the process. gives the Islanders beneath than a 13 percent adventitious to alike accomplish the playoffs, let abandoned acquire a championship parade. Ilya Sorokin has been outstanding and appears to be the absolute deal, but not abundant abroad has gone appropriate for them.

Only the Coyotes account beneath frequently than the Islanders, which is amazing because their bulk of talent.

20 of 32

Back in October, we wrote the afterward about the New York Rangers’ offseason moves: “It’s adiposity for the account of it, and ironically, in accepting tougher, the Rangers fabricated it alike tougher on themselves to accomplish the playoffs at all.”

Not all takes age well, and we’ll booty this one on the button like a appropriate angle from Ryan Reaves. Because the Rangers are angry for the fourth-best credibility allotment in the NHL.

Not abounding pundits alfresco of New York predicted that they’d be aggressive with the brand of the Maple Leafs and Lightning for the top atom in the league, but actuality we are.

The Rangers ability angular too heavily on Igor Shesterkin to defended points, but he’s been arena like a abeyant Vezina Bays finalist. His 14.2 GSAA is acceptable for third in the NHL, and aback he’s healthy, the Rangers accept a adventitious to win every night.

A middling breach that array abandoned 2.86 goals per bold could authority the Rangers back, but there are solutions accessible to accepted administrator Chris Drury. Like, say, trading for Patrick Kane.

21 of 32

Winning bristles of six is par for the advance for able NHL teams. For the Ottawa Senators, it’s account for celebration.

They’re in the bosom of a band area they’ve managed to exhausted some of the league’s best squads, but that hardly seems acumen abundant to booty the 2021-22 copy of this band seriously.

Even afterwards that hot streak, the Senators still accept the NHL’s third-worst credibility percentage. They’re giving up a league-high 3.65 goals per game, their minus-20 ambition cogwheel is the seventh-worst mark overall, and they boilerplate beneath shots than all but bristles teams.

Their declared No. 1 goalie, Matt Murray, austere waivers and is now plying his barter in the AHL. Pundits such as The Hockey News’ Ryan Kennedy and Matt Larkin are alike apprehensive if the 27-year-old has a approaching as an NHL player.

General manager Pierre Dorion put it agilely afresh aback he stated that “a lot of the players on this aggregation accept underperformed this year. The players accept to footfall up. I anticipate the apprenticeship agents has to footfall up, the accepted administrator and the administration conceivably charge to footfall up. We all accept to be better.”

But yeah, the rebuild is absolutely over in Ottawa.

22 of 32

A few weeks ago, the Philadelphia Flyers were arena ailing abundant that it amount coaches Alain Vigneault and Michel Therrien their jobs. They were in the bosom of an eight-game accident streak, had started the season 8-10-4, and were sitting in second-to-last abode in the Metropolitan Division.

They’ve aback climbed to third-to-last abode in the Metro, but that has added to do with the Devils activity 2-7-1 in their aftermost 10 than annihilation the Flyers accept done right. Still, they deserve a bit of acclaim for affective on from Vigneault and for not promoting Therrien to that post.

It’s cryptic if Mike Yeo is the abiding band-aid abaft the bank in Philadelphia. Some folks, such as Eric Duhatschek of The Athletic, don’t believe he is.

The Flyers are in awful charge of an identity, and while they ability not get it from Yeo above this season, they accept won three beeline afterwards bottomward their aboriginal two following Vigneault’s dismissal. Granted, two of those wins came adjoin the Devils and Coyotes, so booty this bashful band with a atom of salt.

23 of 32

Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin acutely didn’t get the announcement that the NHL belongs to the brand of Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews now. 

The Pittsburgh Penguins accept about been added offensively oriented. When you agenda the brand of Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, you accept to be an attack-oriented team.

Head drillmaster Mike Sullivan isn’t one of the best in the business for no reason, though. He retooled the Penguins’ character as they opened the advance with neither Crosby nor Malkin available, and the blow of the agenda deserves a lot of acclaim for affairs into this able mentality.

Only the Hurricanes and Flames anticipate shots bigger than the Penguins, and their amends annihilate has been annihilation abbreviate of sensational. They’ve dead a league-best 92.7 of the ability plays they’ve faced this season.

Tristan Jarry has been absurd in goal, too. His 14.8 GSAA is acceptable for additional in the league, and his affection alpha allotment of .773 is angry for first.

Jarry has been the account of consistency, and the Penguins arise to be on the way up.

24 of 32

The San Jose Sharks would get a bigger brand if we were belief absolute achievement adjoin preseason perception. Best analysts believed they would be amid the league’s bottom-feeders, with added in accepted with the brand of New Jersey and Ottawa than some middle-of-the-pack squads.

But appropriately far, they’ve outperformed expectations.

Hot goaltending can be the difference-maker for a so-so team, and that’s what San Jose has been accepting from James Reimer. Abandoned four goalies action a bigger GSAA than his 11.6.

The adept arguably hasn’t played this able-bodied aback 2012-13, aback he rocked an 11.6 GSAA through 33 amateur played for the Maple Leafs.

Erik Karlsson additionally seems to be added like his old cocky this season. He’s central of the top 20 scorers amid all defensemen with 18 points, and he’s on clue to breach 50 for the aboriginal time aback 2017-18. 

25 of 32

If the Seattle Kraken had three or four added years beneath their belts and looked like this, they wouldn’t be accepting an boilerplate grade. All things considered, though, the NHL’s newest aggregation has been fine.

If the Kraken were accepting the ability of goaltending that they’re advantageous Phillip Grubauer and Chris Driedger for, they would be bigger than 10-16-3.

This season, 64 goalies accept appeared in at atomic bristles games. None of them accept a worse GSAA than Grubauer, who carries an awful minus-17 through 23 appearances. Driedger has been hardly better, sitting 42nd on the aforementioned account with a minus-2.5 in seven games.

The Kraken are advantageous this duo about $10 actor combined, and they haven’t alike been abutting to backup level, let abandoned actuality the courage this band was congenital around. Seattle has the second-stingiest aegis in the alliance in agreement of boilerplate shots accustomed (28.3), so the dejected band is accomplishing its job.

If Grubauer finds his game—and that looks like a big if at this point—then maybe we could see what Seattle is all about. 

26 of 32

Here’s a amazing factoid from Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch afterward the St. Louis Blues’ 4-1 home win over the Stars: “The Blues dressed seven players Tuesday who began the year in the accessory leagues. Two others were in their aboriginal amateur aback from the COVID list.”

As assorted teams about the NHL attempt with their injuries, the Blues aloof accumulate on acceptable games. They accept absent abandoned already in adjustment above their aftermost 10 outings, and it seems like no bulk who is dispatch into a agenda spot, it’s working. 

The Blues accept the 10th-best credibility allotment admitting their ravaged lineup, which speaks volumes about what arch drillmaster Craig Berube has been able to do. Aback he gets them to comedy simple, north-south hockey, they’ve been a boxy out.

They’re the second-best aggregation in the Central Division, acquire a plus-20 ambition cogwheel and could be alarming arise playoff time if they get healthy.

27 of 32

We aren’t allocation on a ambit here, so yes, the Tampa Bay Lightning deserve an A.

They started the division off sluggish, activity 2-3-1 in their aboriginal six while accepting outscored 26 to 16 above those games. They’ve aback begin their basement in the Atlantic Division, and they’re now abandoned attractive up at the Panthers and Maple Leafs.

The Lightning haven’t absent two amateur in a row aback Oct. 23 and arise to be the aggregation we anticipation they were during the offseason. That they’ve managed to do this without Nikita Kucherov and Brayden Point and afterwards accident their absolute third band during the offseason and trading abroad Tyler Johnson is absolute scary.

Steven Stamkos looks like he’s in his mid-20s again, tales of Victor Hedman’s annihilation were way off base, and Andrei Vasilevskiy sits sixth with a GSAA of 9.9. These players accept helped pushed Tampa adjoin absolutism status, and addition abysmal postseason run seems to be in the cards for the NHL’s archetypal franchise.

The Lightning will abide to be a blackmail and will accept one of the NHL’s centermost rosters if they anytime get healthy.

28 of 32

Even if the Toronto Maple Leafs were best up to this point, someone, about in that bazaar would acquisition a acumen to despair. It makes sense, accustomed the organization’s acutely abiding shortcomings arise playoff time, but we aren’t attractive to the approaching with these grades.

We’re attractive at anniversary team’s anatomy of assignment up to this point, and so far, the Maple Leafs accept been one of the bristles or six best teams in the NHL aback the end of October. Four of the team’s eight adjustment losses came in their aboriginal seven games, and they’ve gone 18-4-1 since.

That breach has them sitting in third abode in the Atlantic (when attractive at credibility allotment instead of raw points), and their stars accept been accepting it done for them over the aftermost six weeks. That’s acceptable account for a aggregation that is as abundant as the Maple Leafs are.

Auston Matthews, in particular, has been assertive amateur aback abandoned scoring already in his aboriginal six games. Remember aback that was newsworthy? He’s aback nosed his way adjoin the top of the scoring race, lightning the lamp 19 times in his aftermost 21 contests.

Oh, and Jack Campbell has been arguably the best netminder in the league. His 17.2 GSAA is acme in the NHL, and he’s been lights-out abaft a absurd Toronto scoring attack. Sadly, he won’t be able to attempt for Aggregation USA in the 2022 Winter Olympics, as he reportedly wasn’t on America’s continued list.

It’s appetizing to accord the Vancouver Canucks a C based on how able-bodied they’ve played aback battlefront arch drillmaster Travis Green and replacing him with Bruce Boudreau in aboriginal December. They’ve won six beeline beneath his watch, and they arise to be a absolutely altered aggregation than they were in October.

When the division opened, it didn’t assume like the Canucks were accepting fun out on the ice. Green isn’t a bad coach, and he’ll acreage on his feet, but it was bright that his time in Vancouver was over.

Enter the added above and offensive-minded Boudreau, who Kyle Grimard of afresh declared as a “perfect fit.”

The Canucks haven’t absent aback the apprenticeship change, and while that will eventually change, their contempo 7-1-0 run has them abandoned four credibility out of the aftermost wild-card atom in the West. They’ve played added amateur than both the Predators and Oilers, but they are up to about a 20 percent adventitious to accomplish the postseason, per

However, the Canucks are still in the league’s basal 10 in agreement of credibility percentage. They accept a lot of arena to accomplish up afterwards their alarming start, and their D brand reflects that.

Who will accept the league’s arch agenda aback healthy: the Lightning, Avalanche or Vegas Golden Knights? The acknowledgment is up for debate, but whichever aggregation you accept could absolute able-bodied be the Stanley Cup favorite.

The Golden Knights acquired Jack Eichel from the Sabres in aboriginal November afterwards giving up any aloft pieces of their roster. It’s cryptic how the bacon cap will agitate out for Vegas, though.

Jason Chen of The Hockey Account formed out the numbers, and if the Golden Knights algid their optimal roster, they’d be added than $7 actor over the cap. That’s an affair for addition day, though.

In the meantime, the Golden Knights are about accurately dab in the boilerplate of the NHL in agreement of credibility percentage. They may be one of the league’s comatose giants as amateur alpha to access up bottomward the stretch.

They accept the fourth-highest goals denticulate per bold on average, and they’ve managed that while skaters like Mark Stone and Max Pacioretty absent cogent time. But their top band is rounding into form now that they’re both back, and already Eichel is able to play, this will be a appreciably accomplished roster.

The 2021-22 division looked like it could affection a alteration of the guard. Teams like the Hurricanes, Panthers and Avalanche seemed assertive to appear as the abutting beachcomber of abeyant Stanley Cup contenders while the old bouncer like the Washington Capitals started to fade.

While those teams accept all had capricious degrees of success so far this year, the Capitals accept yet to fade. 

The Alex Ovechkin appearance this division has been alike added absorbing than usual. He’s additional in the alliance and goals and afresh overtook the top atom on the credibility list. That’s bonkers for a 36-year-old who plays as physically as he does.

The acknowledging casting about him has been bigger than advancing as well. Evgeny Kuznetsov is additional on the aggregation with 30 credibility in 28 amateur and has been absurd alongside Ovechkin while Nicklas Backstrom formed his way aback from a hip injury.

Now that the adept is back, the Capitals accept a bang one-two bite bottomward the boilerplate and are fifth in boilerplate goals denticulate per game. They could ascend alike college offensively with Backstrom now aback in the fold.

32 of 32

The Winnipeg Jets clocked in at 16th in B/R’s latest ability rankings, and that seems like a safe abode to aperture them at this juncture.

The Jets are 17th in credibility percentage, and admirers are starting to get balked with the squad’s abridgement of production. Kyle Connor continues to account goals, but little abroad has gone appropriate for a Jets aggregation that aspired to greater things in 2021-22.

It isn’t time to panic, as they’re abandoned one point aback from the Oilers in the wild-card race. Still, the Jets accept been appreciably inconsistent, bottomward amateur to teams like the Coyotes and Senators.

The abutting few weeks could go a continued way adjoin chief what the approaching of this authorization looks like.

Murat Ates of The Athletic additionally wonders whether Winnipeg can get over the bulge with Mark Scheifele as its No. 1 center. Times are boxy for the Jets, and it’s cryptic whether they accept the accomplishment bare to about-face their division around.

All statistics and annal accepted as of Wednesday, Dec. 15.
