The Anaheim Ducks are in a pickle. While they’ve got two young, budding stars in Swedes Rickard Rakell and Hampus Lindholm they’ve also got something of a cap crunch on their hands. 

As a result, the pair of restricted free agents have gone unsigned and may miss time during the regular season that begins in just a few days. While the matter of how the Ducks will manage to sign both players with just $7.5 million in cap space is a discussion for another day, it’s worth looking at, in a vacuum, what kind of contracts the players might receive.

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. The teams who either really struggle to either keep the puck out of the net or score, but probably not both. The teams who, if everything goes right, could surprise you. These are teams 25-21 on the NHLN power rankings.

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. 

These are the basement dwellers. The teams with damn near no shot at playoff glory this season. The teams with fans who already know way too much about the upcoming draft. The teams who are worrying about down the road (hopefully). These are teams 30-26 on the NHLN power rankings.
