The Silver:

Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Anaheim Ducks

Edmonton has been great so far this season, but they are a team built on just one true line. Draisaitl and McDavid have led this team, and when the playoffs come around you need to be rolling 4 lines.

Anaheim is another team that I think just is not there yet. Although they have played great so far this season, they have lost a lot of key players to trades over the last few years. I think they are just a little too young right now, next year or maybe the year after could bring the Ducks back to the playoffs.

Calgary is another team I believe is still in the silver tier. Young players like Tkachuk and Gaudreau have led the team so far this year, but they have not proven themselves in the playoffs. After the year they had last year losing to Colorado I don’t see them moving out of the silver until they win a playoff series.
