NHL Power Rankings: B/R Experts’ Week 15 Poll

January 18th, 2015 by Dave Lozo Leave a reply »
The Nashville Predators have held the top spot in our power rankings for two consecutive weeks, a worthy spot for a team that's been slicing through the NHL like a hot knife through butter.

Although, I'm not sure why you're heating your knife before slicing through butter as opposed to just heating the butter a bit, but that's neither here nor there.

Pekka Rinne will be out for around a month with a knee injury, and the Predators have already shown signs of faltering with him out of the lineup last week. Will that hurt the Predators' standing in this week's power rankings? Will the dominant New York Islanders or someone else usurp the Preds this week?

As always, our expert panel—Jonathan Willis, Steve Macfarlane, Allan Mitchell, Lyle Richardson, Carol Schram and myself—have voted to determine the ranking of the league's 30 teams, and that ranking is based on what's happened so far and what we expect to happen in the future. It does not mirror the NHL standings exactly.

Read on to see where all 30 teams are ranked and which rises to the top this week.
