The St. Louis Blues are Stanley Cup Champions and already ESPN has the teams ranked for the 2019-2020 season.

According to ESPN, the NHL Power Rankings for 2019-2020 rank the Stanley Cup champs in at number 6.  The overall number one team from this year, Tampa is listed as the number one team on this list.   Boston, who just lost to St. Louis, is in at Number 2.

The Detroit Red Wings had another down season and ESPN has them ranked near the bottom.   They are number 27 on this list of 31 teams.     We'll see if any of the off season moves will help them move up.

The list should change before the start of the season this fall.   Free Agency and the draft will change the make up of many teams and we may see some teams fall or rise depending on their off season moves.

Next up the NHL Awards will be given away in Las Vegas on Wednesday night, June 19th.   The NHL Draft will be next Friday and Saturday in Vancouver.
