Hey, NHL fans!

Who do you think will win the Stanley Cup this season? Vote below!

Per NHL.com's Dan Rosen, these are the Super 16 Power Rankings.

The Tampa Bay Lightning are the No. 1 team in the preseason Super 16, but just barely.

The Lightning, who won the Stanley Cup last season, edged the Colorado Avalanche by one voting point in the exercise that featured 13 NHL.com staff members submitting their preseason power rankings.

Each was ranked No. 1 by six staff members and No. 2 by five, but the Lightning picked up the extra voting point by being ranked No. 3 by two staff members. The Avalanche were ranked No. 3 once, but one staff member had them as low as No. 4.

One voting point also separated No. 4 (St. Louis Blues) from No. 5 (Philadelphia Flyers), No. 6 (Washington Capitals) from No. 7 (Dallas Stars), and No. 13 (Pittsburgh Penguins) from No. 14 (Edmonton Oilers).

To create the Super 16, each of the 13 participating staff members put together his or her version of what they think it should look like. Those were submitted and a point total assigned to each.

The team that was selected first was given 16 points, second got 15, third 14 and so on down to No. 16, who got one point.

Here is the Super 16:
  1. Tampa Bay Lightning
  2. Colorado Avalanche
  3. Vegas Golden Knights
  4. St. Louis Blues
  5. Philadelphia Flyers
  6. Washington Capitals
  7. Dallas Stars
  8. Boston Bruins
  9. Toronto Maple Leafs
  10. Carolina Hurricanes
  11. Vancouver Canucks
  12. New York Islanders
  13. Pittsburgh Penguins
  14. Edmonton Oilers
  15. Montreal Canadiens
  16. Columbus Blue Jackets

    I can't remember where I saw it, but I believe @EA_Blueberry said there are no plans to add the adapted schedule/divisions.
