We're back into the thick of NHL hockey and it was an exciting first week. There are a few surprises here, but with a small sample size (two or three games) for each team, it'll make for a shuffle at the top over the next few weeks. Overreactions are abound and it'll take some time before teams show their true colors. It's been a fun first week and the second should be even better.
(Note: I don't do preseason rankings because there's no reason to hold teams to a spot based on what they did in an entirely different season)
