Can anyone stop Anaheim?
The Ducks sit atop the NHL standings, but that's not the only thing working in favour of our incumbent top seed in these rankings. They have been nigh unbeatable at home all season and nigh unbeatable anywhere over the last two months. They took on an excellent Vancouver team in Wednesday and lit them up to the tune of nine goals.
Our panel is back again to rank both the Ducks and the rest of the league. Voting this week are Adrian Dater, Dave Lozo, Allan Mitchell, Lyle Richardson, Carol Schram and myself. The criteria remain the same, and the vote will focus heavily on recent performance, with the overall NHL standings only serving as an anchor point for each team.
Read on to see where every NHL team ranks.
