With about 25 games into the season some teams really suprised the league and alot of fans. Heres the Top 15 right now in my opinion:
Last year, the only division to send 4 teams to the playoffs was the Atlantic. To date, this trend looks to continue, which shouldn’t surprise many. What is surprising, perhaps, is the fact that the Central division also currently holds 4 playoff spots.
In fact, the Atlantic and Central divisions are the only two divisions where each team has a winning record (defined here as more wins in regulation than loses in regulation, and also more total points than games played).
What do you think are the best divisions?
Does it surprise anyone how well these two divisions are doing? Or how poorly the Northwest (with only 2 teams playoff-bound) is doing?
TSN.ca and Sportsnet.ca are reporting that the Anaheim Ducks have announced the return of Scott Niedermayer to the team for the remainder of the season.
