  1. Toronto Maple Leafs 

Record: 16-6-1

Last Week: 6

The Leaf’s slow start is old news, as they have been lights out. It helps to have a good goalie finally.

Last Week 1 

The Panthers are outside the top 2 for the first time since my preseason rankings. The team has had a difficult run as of late, their latest bad game was a loss against the Kraken. They do have two key players hurt in Shasha Barkov and Anthony Duclair, so when they return the team should be back on top.
