Super 16 Rankings

What do you think about these placements from Corey Masisak of NHL.com in the Super 16 Rankings this week?

2. Chicago Blackhawks (1-1-1) LW: 1- The Blackhawks have blown a two-goal lead in a third period and yielded a goal in the final minute of a tie game. This is at least seven days away from being anything resembling a "Stanley Cup hangover" and at least seven weeks away from being cause for true concern.

6. Detroit Red Wings (2-2-0) LW: 3- The Red Wings have not scored so far quite like they will be expected to, but did enough in spurts of two of their three games. Following up on last week, Stephen Weiss is off to a strong start (57.1 CF%). They're fine.

8. Ottawa Senators (1-0-2) LW: 9- If this list was done in tiers, the Senators would be either the end of the first group or the start of the second group, and might go back and forth. This week Paul MacLean, while being one of the best hockey coaches on the planet, revealed he also could be the man to go to for tips on reeling in a prized speckled trout.

16. New York Rangers (1-3-0) LW: 8- What transpired at the Shark Tank was embarrassing, but the Rangers are one of two non-top seven teams to have beaten a top-seven team to this point and they did it on the road. That said, losing Rick Nash for an extended period could make this season-opening nine-game stretch away from home a disaster.
