New York Islanders Fall Again in Metro Power Rankings
The Carolina Hurricanes are the worst team in the league. Not the worst current team, and future worst team in the league in the Vancouver Canucks.
The Canes rank 30th thanks to a -10 goal differential. Thanks in large part to their sub-standard goalkeeping from duo Cam Ward and Eddie Lack. The same duo they had last season that was ranked 29th in the league with a .902 SV%.
Now they sit in 28th with a .883 SV%. Which means some teams are oddly enough worse that the Canes in goaltending department.
But combine that terrible save percentage with an equally bad forward line that just can’t score goals and the two create the perfect duo to sink a team.
If it wasn’t for Jeff Skinner and his 12 points who knows where this could rank. Well, it would still be 30th. But they’d be last by a long shot.
Their 2-2-2 record since the last power ranking is the worst in the division and so to the bottom they go.
