Here you have it. Our bi-weekly votes have been tabulated and the teams have been shuffled around. No surprise in the East as the top team continues to be the top team. Some movement behind them as the Rebels continue their strong start to the season. As we reach the quarter pole of the season, teams are starting to understand who and what they are. Out West the biggest movers are the Kamloops Blazers, the team has been lights out recently and may have figured out how to put the puck in the net.
0 Prince Albert Raiders
8 straight wins, 15-1-0 overall *mic drop*
2 Red Deer Rebels
Only team to beat Prince Albert, powered by Hagel, Alexeyev and Anders
-1 Saskatoon Blades
Stopped the bleeding Sunday in Calgary, 2-3-2 since 7-2-0 start
-1 Brandon Wheat Kings
Five straight losses sets them back from last rankings
2 Edmonton Oil Kings
Streaky as it gets, 5 wins - 8 losses - now 4 wins
3 Lethbridge Hurricanes
Regularly involved in high scoring games. Great for fans, hell for coaches
-1 Medicine Hat Tigers
Seem to be rounding into form with Nassen and McPherson on D
-3 Moose Jaw Warriors
In the 2nd Wild Card playoff spot. Its early but an experienced core may hold onto it.
2 Calgary Hitmen
Should be better but seem to be fishing more goals out of their net then they are scoring.
-2 Kootenay Ice
Same results as Calgary, scoring is decent but defense and goaltending leave a lot to be desired
-1 Regina Pats
Finally won a home game, 6 points clear of the cellar dwellers
0 Swift Current Broncos
7 straight losses. Only 1 win in 15 games. The polar opposite of their division rivals.
0 Vancouver Giants
Up and down the last few weeks but still the class of the Western Conference
4 Everett Silvertips
The best team of the tightest division in the WHL. Finding ways to win on lengthy road trip going 4-2
-1 Victoria Royals
Have played the least number of games among all teams, same points percentage as the Giants, 4 less games played.
3 Tri-City Americans
Winners of 5 straight, look capable of moving on from players turning pro.
1 Spokane Chiefs
Jaret Anderson-Dolan returned to the team, watch for this team to continue moving up
3 Kamloops Blazers
Winners of 4 straight, went into Portland and swept weekend. Might have found their offense.
-3 Portland Winterhawks
Struggling lately to click. Losing 3 straight might have Johnston looking elsewhere for answers
-5 Seattle Thunderbirds
Oh how the mighty have fallen. Just one win in their last five sees three teams pass them in the standings.
-1 Prince George Cougars
As close to being in the Western Conference basement as it gets. Not showing much reason to believe they will fight for a playoff spot.
0 Kelowna Rockets
Much better recently but not enough to move out of the last spot here. Long road trip looms.
