Knee-Jerk Reactions to the Start of Every NHL Team’s 2016-17 Season

October 18th, 2016 by Steve Macfarlane Leave a reply »
The first week of regular-season NHL action is coming to a close, and teams have taken their first steps toward what they hope will be productive and ultimately profitable campaigns that end in the playoffs.

With two or three games completed for each of the 30 franchises, we take a look at what has been accomplished so far. There have been some surprisingly good performances, both by individuals and teams as a whole. There have been some awful debuts, and puzzling disappointments as well.

While it is admittedly way too early to count on anything we've seen thus far—just ask the guys who last year drafted their fantasy teams based on the opening week's scoring leaders—it is still fun to throw out an opinion about some of the results so far.

We'll toss out a knee-jerk reaction for every team following the start of the 2016-17 season. Feel free to add your own and debate the merits of our notes. But remember to take them with a grain of salt—they're knee-jerk reactions, after all.
