Fifteen games into the NHL’s regular season, we are already starting to see the separation of the men from the boys

Led by the Montreal Canadiens, the Eastern Conference has several teams that have emerged as powerhouses.  But the Chicago Blackhawks are chomping at the bit and are ready to compete for their fourth Stanley Cup in seven years.

Where does everyone else fall in our latest NHL power rankings? Let’s take a look.

team. 112. Not sure what the problem is here. The Flames just dumped tons of cash into their young forward group and the production just isn’t there. Offseason holdout Johnny Gaudreau started off slow, but needs to find some motivation to start winning hockey games. And Brian Elliott simply isn’t the answer here. He is 3-8 with a 3.36 GAA with a defense that should be giving him more help than he’s getting. It’s shocking the Flames aren’t what Edmonton is right now.. 5-10-1. Previous: 25th. Calgary Flames. 30
