28. Arizona Coyotes
The Coyotes have played four games so far and have been in every one of them. They beat the Blues and Devils and only lost by a goal to the Islanders and Rangers. Not a bad start for the Yotes.
27. Seattle Kraken
It is too early to write out the Seattle Kraken but through five games this team has looked bad. This team is struggling to find the back of the net, and unless that changes they might be back in the bottom eight again next week.
26. Chicago Blackhawks
Chicago Blackhawks finished up a five game road trip in week one. Bedard has looked pretty good through the first five games, the main issue in Chicago has to be that they only have one good line so Bedard is facing off against the best of the best every night.
Another positive for the Hawks has to be how good Arvid Soderblom has looked in his matchups. He has put up a .956 save percentage in his two games played.
25. Anaheim Ducks
Last night Leo Carlsson made his NHL debut and registered his first NHL goal. The Ducks look like a better team on the ice this season, and it will be interesting to see where they finish.
