The Win Column Power Rankings is a weekly feature that will highlight the current rankings of all the NHL teams during that specific week. While their place in the standings will be taken into affect, each team’s’ weekly performances will have the greater effect on how high, or low, they end up ranking.
This week on the TWC Power Rankings teams will still be ranked using the normal criteria based on their weekly on ice performances, but with a twist. Instead of having a small dissection of each teams performance, we have searched the bowels of Twitter to find the most memorable, comical, and laugh out loud tweet (or tweets) for each team. Some you may have seen, some you may not have, but hopefully all of them will put a smile on your face. If you find an additional tweet you think should be included, @ me on Twitter (@johnmackinnon24) and you could see it appear here!
