    Disclaimer: I only made this because @ODucks182 is lazy af. I have not watched every team play, so this ranking is solely based off my personal opinion and stats that I looked at.

    10. Czech Republic
    Sitting at the bottom of the standings with only 5 points through first week, Czech Republic has an embarrassing -24 goal differential, while giving up the most goals in the tournament so far. Actiondave's draft strategy clearly hasn't worked out so far as the goalie he selected third overall, bradlayman, is helpless in net, facing 20 shots a game while giving up almost 5 goals. He also sent his team's leading scorer Pawdiddy down to the training camp, which is an interesting move, and we will see how it all works out for him. Nevertheless, Czech will need a big week two to have a chance to make the playoffs.

    Top Players:
    Pawdiddy (LW): 1-2-0, 5 Goals, 3 Assists, 8 Points, -6
    Kinneyyy (C): 1-1-0, 2 Goals, 4 Assists, 6 Points, -1
    XXThaOneXx (LD): 1-1-1, 6 Assists, 6 Points, -3, -7 TA/GA
    D-Force12 (LD): 2-1-0, 1 Assist, 1 Point, -1, -13 TA/GA
    Antg310 (RW): 1-1-0, 2 Goals, 4 Assists, 6 Points, -2
    9. Kuwait
    Also with 5 points so far through week 1, Kuwait has the tournament worst -24:53 time on attack difference and lowest average TOA at 4:53, which means they may be getting dominated in their games and struggle to gain control of the puck. However, I believe they have some solid players on the team led by their owner, Hainesy, who had 12 points in week 1, and are capable of turning it around week two. They will need to win a lot of games next week in order to make it to the playoffs, good luck.

    Top Players
    Hainesy1291 (C): 2-1-0, 4 Goals, 8 Assists, 12 Points, +5

    OsamaBinBLAZZZIN (G): 2-1, 84.0% Save%, 2.67 GAA
    Leester24554 (RD): 2-0-1, 5 Assists, 5 Points, +6, +3 TA/GA
    B2-xX- (C): 2-1-0, 2 Goals, 4 Assists, 6 Points, +5
    Punisher570305 (LD): 2-1-0, 2 Assists, 2 Points, +5, +1 TA/GA
    8. Switzerland
    Switzerland is 4-5 so far in the tournament, they have not been the best team in terms of puck possession, but they have managed to get 4 wins in the first week, with two of them coming against one of the top teams, Canada. They definitely have room for improvement, especially on the defensive side where they have given up second most goals among all teams. Being a first time management, I believe Im_Kreaky selected a solid team. The Swiss will be fighting with a couple other teams to get in the playoffs, and after that anything can happen, as they have already beaten Canada twice so far.

    Top Players:
    TiberiussMagnus (RD): 3-0-0, 1 Assist, 1 Point, +2, -6 TA/GA
    Crazyflame29 (LD): 3-0-0, 1 Goal, 3 Assists, 4 Points, +3, -12 TA/GA
    Bosanceros1992 (RW): 1-2-0, 3 Goals, 6 Assists, 9 Points, -2
    Ghostx7787 (RW): 1-2-0, 4 Goals, 4 Assists, 8 Points, -6
    Im_Kreaky (G): 2-3, 78.5% Save%, 3.40 GAA, 1 SO
    7. Italy
    With a 4-4-1 record, Italy is currently 7th overall in the tournament after week 1. Led by an experienced owner, Youngtko13, Italy seemed to have a good team on paper. However, the result hasn't been ideal so far. Italy has clearly struggled on power play with the second worst PP% in the tournament. These guys will most likely be in the playoffs, and I think they have the goaltending to perhaps steal a series.

    Top Players:
    Superguy1999 (C) 2-1-0, 4 Goals, 5 Assists, 9 Points, +1
    Chiuxjai (C) 2-0-1, 2 Goals, 4 Assists, 6 Points, +0
    Morn (RD) 2-1-0, 1 Goal, 1 Assist, 2 Points, +0, -5 TA/GA
    Eaglehawk2014 (G) 3-1, 82.5% Save%, 2.46 GAA, 1 SO
    lGalchenyuk27l (LW) 2-0-1, 1 Goal, 5 Assists, 6 Points, +0
    6. Germany
    The Germans are doing well so far in the tournament with a 4-3-2 record. They have a strong TOA difference, but they still haven't been able to convert that to a goal differential better than -3. They will have some work to do if they want to win a gold medal, especially when it comes to putting the puck in the net.

    Top Players:
    Ryan Silva (RW): 2-0-1, 5 Goals, 5 Assists, 10 Points, +3
    Jake From State Farm (C): 1-1-1, 3 Goals, 3 Assists, 6 Points, +1
    HELLOVATOR (RD): 1-1-1, 4 Assists, 4 Points, +0, -1 TA/GA
    WarChyld289 (G): 2-3, 81.7% Save%, 2.08 GAA

    JustCause17 (LD): 1-1-1, 3 Assists, 3 Points, +1, -2 TA/GA
    5. Russia
    Russia currently is 5-4-0 with 10 points. They are only placed ahead of the Germans due to the goal differential and the 5 wins compared to 4. I think they have some good forwards and leading the tournament in shot differentials with +50 but if they want to win the gold medal, they will have to strengthen their backend.

    Top Players:
    Chel__Lengend (C): 2-1-0, 4 Goals, 6 Assists, 10 Points, +3
    Jonshadow12 (LD): 3-0-0, 1 Goal, 1 Assist, 2 Points, +6, +3 TA/GA
    Tengaray (LW): 2-1-0, 1 Goal, 9 Assists, 10 Points, +5
    K1773rm0nk3y (RW): 2-1-0, 3 Goals, 4 Assists, 7 Points, +5
    Unkle_steel (RW): 2-1-0, 4 Goals, 5 Assists, 9 Points, +4
    4. Canada
    Canada currently has a 5-3-1 record, sitting 4th place in the league. Team Canada was dominant early on in the week, winning the first 4 games, but finishing off the week with a 1-3-1 record in their last 5 games. I believe Canada is a top line heavy team, carried by the Hamilton Bulldog duo, Boughss and ATL_NizzyyTouch, along with Bettercallsaul18 at center. They also have two good goaltenders in Fooldawg83 and OmegaWolf1020. I think Canada will have a good chance at winning a medal, but they will have to improve their other lines if they want to win the gold.

    Top Players:
    Boughss (LW): 3-0-0, 9 Goals, 7 Assists, 16 Points, +6
    ATL_NizzyyTouch (RW): 3-0-0, 6 Goals, 8 Assists, 14 Points, +6
    Thevandal1987 (LD): 2-0-1, 3 Assists, 3 Points, +4, -9 TA/GA
    Bettercallsaul18 (C): 3-0-0, 2 Goals, 10 Assists, 12 Points, +6
    Fooldawg83 (G): 4-2, 87.0% Save%, 2.04 GAA
    3. Sweden
    Seen as one of the favorites before the tournament started, Sweden has lived up to its expecation with 5-1-3 record. Sweden has been dominant in TOA in the tournament. With good players on both ends, I believe the team led by iMaBEASTkidd19 will make a run for the gold medal.

    Top Players:
    mcanadiens24 (LD): 3-0-0, 1 Goal, 4 Assists, 5 Points, +6, -7 TA/GA
    Triplemdemo (RD): 3-0-0, 3 Assists, 3 Points, +6, 0 TA/GA
    CarlUnts (LW): 2-0-1, 4 Goals, 6 Assists, 10 Points, +4
    Jeown (RW): 2-0-1, 4 Goals, 5 Assists, 9 Points, +4
    RG x 34 (G): 2-0, 88.5% Save%, 1.51 GAA, 1 SO
    2. USA
    Team USA is currently second in the tournament with 13 points. They have a very good defensive core led by GreenTurkey and NantoriousBIG, along with solid forwards, and a great goaltender to backstop the team. With the most goals scored out of all the teams, team USA will have a very good chance at the gold medal, especially with arguably the best goalie in the tournament, SGDragonSlayer. They are also the only team to beat the first place Kazakhstan so far.

    Top Players:
    SGDragonSlayer (G): 3-1, 88.9% Save%, 1.94 GAA
    ItzAlive__ (LW): 3-0-0, 5 Goals, 5 Assists, 10 Points, +9
    asstchief209 (RW): 2-1-0, 6 Goals, 5 Assists, 11 Points, +8
    NantoriousBIG (RD): 3-0-0, 1 Assist, 1 Point, +7, -5 TA/GA
    GreenTurkey (LD): 2-1-0, 1 Goal, 2 Assists, 3 Points, +7, +2 TA/GA

    1. Kazakhstan
    Might be a little biased here, and the first two teams may be interchangeable, but Kazakhstan has been dominant thus far in the tournament with an 8-1-0 record. The team also has a staggering 39:56 TOA difference through just 9 games, Kazakhstan has had control in all its games. With skill and depth at all positions, Kazakhstan has allowed the fewest goals while scoring the second most. One of the favorites to win the gold medal, Kazakhstan will hopefully be able to keep it going in week two.

    Top Players:
    eJanzen88 (G): 6-0, 89.7% Save%, 0.98 GAA, 2 SO
    Lucente99 (RW): 3-0-0, 7 Goals, 4 Assists, 11 Points, +6
    Babagunoosh989 (LD): 3-0-0, 5 Assists, 5 Points, +8, -3 TA/GA
    ODucks182 (C): 3-0-0, 6 Goals, 3 Assists, +8, 100% doesn't get back on defense
    CompleteLuck21 (RD), 3-0-0, 4 Assists, 4 Points, +6, -10 TA/GA


    Don't be salty if you weren't included, or if your team is ranked too low, it took long enough already just to go through every team's stats.

    Thanks for the kind words! I actually planned to make my own power rankings thread, and when I wrote Kazakhstan's part, I said janzen was the best goalie so far. Narrowly edges me out in SV% but has me beat in GAA. Plus he didnt lose this week

    Also on that last point, im listed as 3-1, but i had an OTL so its 3-0-1, but honestly not a big deal. Good luck next week to everyone! Thanks for making this writeup, hopefully you do it next week!

    Sorry I didn't really look into the goalie's OT records, so I just took the win-loss from the stats page. It would be interesting to see your take on the power ranking as well if you are still doing one. I will try to make one after next week if I have time.

    I wouldve posted mine last night, but i abandoned it because it was taking forever and it was too much for me to do, but I was pretty much just gonna say what teams did good and who their best guy was. I voted ejanzen as best OVR just cuz he killed it so hard

    We beat Germany twice but we’re below them even though our records are almost identical o_O

    Good rankings nonetheless, nice job

    Sorry I didn't look at the head to head records in this case, and I ranked Germany higher because of their TOA difference. I will try to take the head to head records into consideration if I do another one next week

    No worries! Can confirm that from doing season 7 media that this kind of stuff takes way longer than everyone thinks. I applaud the effort.

    Rumor has it he allows derogatory remarks in his discord. Is that true?

    Oh I will be as you know our whole team sucked in 1st week look at everyone's stats on our team. We were a different team in week 2. See you all on the ice and Crazeemat I hope i'm up against you. I like you and think your definitely not a POS but we are in playoffs as you all know i'm not a prick either. As for the others I have no clue who you are and it'll stay that way after this series unless you impress me I pay attention to who does what and has what skills and our last game I played against you guys didn't show me anything besides you guys let up a bunch of goals in bunches I forget the score but it was an ass whooping.
