Through an algorithm known as "surveying a select number of our staff", we determined the following power rankings. Over the next six days, we'll be counting down the worst teams all the way to the best teams heading into the 2016-17 season. 

They're a step out of the basement, but it's easier to imagine these teams down there than in the playoffs. The teams with star players but gaping holes.

This article is part of a four-part series that lists all of the transactions made by each NHL team and discusses what each team’s offseason means in the context of their division. Information and data was taken from: NHL Numbers, Hockey Reference, General Fanager, Hockey Analysis, Corsica, TSN, and Rotowire. Also, a special thanks to Sean Tierney who provided data visualization for the series.  

For the first time ever, the Atlantic Division is The Battle of Florida. 

Much to the surprise of everybody who knows what hockey is, the Florida Panthers finished the 2015-16 as the Atlantic champs. And now, after an excellent offseason, it looks like they aren't just going to be an anomaly, they're going to be there to stay. The Lightning also managed to do the impossible and extend the Steven Stamkos era in Tampa, but  they still aren't safe from difficult cap decisions.
