Don't believe it?

Power Ranking Every NHL Team's 3-Year Window 🏒

Three years is a long time. Don't believe it? Here's a test. Think back about what the sports world—and the world in general, for that matter—looked like on Aug. 6, 2018. Tom Brady was still a Patriot. Patrick Mahomes was still a prospect. COVID-19 was still, well, not a thing. The point: A lot can happen—and change—in three years. In NHL terms, that means each of the league's 32 fanbases should have some measure of optimism.
