15. Rangers - Marian Gaborik helped the Rangers split their first two games of the regular season. The former Minnesota Wild sniper picked up three points (2 G, 1A) in his first two games wearing the red, white and blue.
The Boston Bruins, who are a trendy pick to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals, are ranked #16 two spots below the Isles.
...i don't think I can ever link to an article at Fox Sports again. I'd love to hear what they base these rankings on.
