Week 1 - Commencement Addressment (Delayed)

I know what you're thinking, co-GMs of the illustrious, magnificent, non-innocuous (nonocuous?), everlasting, revered SICHL Fantasy Hockey Family; what the hell? We're already like eight games into the season and you're just NOW doing the pre-season power rankings? What gives? I'll tell you what gives - me. 100% each and every day. Forgetting to set my lineup, reading too much into team stats, taking too many penalties, losing to good teams, cursing my goaltending - it's all me, 100% heart 100% of the time. 

Alright, facade over. We're late. We're sorry about that. But here are the pre-season power rankings. Just a reminder, it doesn't matter if you're first in the league right now (Matthew MacInnis) or not doing as well as your pre-season ranking (you know who) this was ALL done in the past. The next power rankings will be HUGE taking into account at least 10-12 games for each team. In the meantime, Eric, Matt and myself are happy to bring you a video preview of what's to come, what we thought of last season and OF COURSE the upcoming SICHL Super Summit, August 25-26 2017 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Let's go!

1
Acadia Golden Bears
Previous: 2 Trend: up 1
Once again, not a weakness anywhere. He's not number 1 in any specific category, but with no glaring weaknesses, the league will be in tough to top Guy from repeating.
2
Las Vegas Aces
Previous: 4 Trend: up 2
Our two finalists from last year haven't lost a step. Dustin spent 114 million to ensure this.
3
Calgary Mustangs
Previous: 7 Trend: up 4
Calgary? This high? *double checks notes* yup, Calgary's a badass this year.
4
Havana Revolution
Previous: 15 Trend: up 11
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
5
Ottawa Slammers
Previous: 6 Trend: up 1
Pat is good at SICHL. Did you know that? He's won the entire thing, which makes him the envy of every GM who hasn't won.
6
Nova Scotia Schooners
Previous: 9 Trend: up 3
Eric's in win now mode and he's in some pretty elite company - he literally tied Pat in our pre-season mathematical equations!
7
Whitehorse Huskies
Previous: 5 Trend: down 2
Don, the Huskies, is in 7th place. Lucky 7 - most would be lucky to have Don's defense.
8
Vancouver Island Norsemen
Previous: 8 Trend: --
Matt's team might be good this year! I mean, we say that every year, but THIS year could be totally different.
9
Hamburg Gladiators
Previous: 11 Trend: up 2
This team is all Luongo, all the time.
10
Edmonton Supersonics
Previous: 3 Trend: down 7
Mike's powerhouse Supersonics round out the top 10. Why is he so good/handsome/pleasant at EVERYTHING?
11
Reykjavik Riders
Previous: 17 Trend: up 6
The Riders are one of Henry's rivals, so naturally even though they are way better than the Hamburglars, Henry put them 2 spots lower. Ha!
12
Kansas City Krunch
Previous: 27 Trend: up 15
Chalk this up to early pre-season jinxing?
13
Boston Colonials
Previous: 21 Trend: up 8
Uh...also chalk this up to early pre-season jinxing?
14
Stockholm Cougars
Previous: 10 Trend: down 4
Welcome to the Tarasenkshow, World Conference. Have a seat and enjoy.
15
Québec Canons
Previous: 22 Trend: up 7
Will the Canons party this year like it's 1812?
16
Winnipeg Falcons
Previous: 14 Trend: down 2
Winnipeg is a far cry from the championship team they were a few years ago, but they're not out of the race yet. After all, the race hasn't started yet!
17
Philadelphia Fire Ants
Previous: 13 Trend: down 4
HA. Like Norm will stay down in 17th this long. And what's with Matt not getting the DS9 reference? Remember rule 177 - Know your enemies...but do business with them always.
19
London Monarchs
Previous: 18 Trend: down 1
The Monarchs look top heavy, bottom light. Kind of like the World Conference!
20
St. Louis Spartans
Previous: 23 Trend: up 3
Sean's assembled another solid team, including some deep goaltending!
21
Vancouver Vipers
Previous: 12 Trend: down 9
Matt hates the Vipers so much, he got his own video!
22
Fredericton Express
Previous: 16 Trend: down 6
Our fearless, wonderful leader finds himself near the dregs of the pre-season rankings, but who knows what's in store for our Mark the Great?
23
Brandon Wheat Kings
Previous: 1 Trend: down 22
We'd vote Doug as one of the GMs we're most excited to party with at the Super Summit!
24
Toronto Titans
Previous: 19 Trend: down 5
Derrick has some solid goaltending, but we're predicting a 9th or worse place finish in the mega powerful Canadian Conference.
25
Dublin Shamrocks
Previous: 24 Trend: down 1
Ryan's spent the money, will the results show?
26
Montréal Millionaires
Previous: 25 Trend: down 1
Kasim's Millionaires are right on queue and in the right place. 26th!
27
Chicago Tigers
Previous: 26 Trend: down 1
Sheetal - master of the sim, confuser of plans.
28
Denver Rapids
Previous: 28 Trend: --
Rapid-ly acquiring amazing talent, Sam finds himself near the bottom, but already has a few game breaking players.
