NHL 22 Power Rankings: The Bottom 10 Players

The NHL 22 season is upon us, and with it comes the annual tradition of Power Rankings. These are the players who are the absolute lowest in the game, and as such, you should avoid them at all costs.

10) Brayden Schenn – St. Louis Blues
Schenn is a good player but he’s not nearly as good as he was in NHL 21. He’s still a solid option for the Blues, but he’s not someone you should be relying on to carry your team.

9) Sebastian Aho – Carolina Hurricanes
Aho took a big step backwards in NHL 22. He’s still a decent player, but he’s not someone you can count on to be a top player on your team.

8) Tyler Seguin – Dallas Stars
Seguin is another player who took a big step backwards in NHL 22. He’s still a good player, but he’s not someone you can rely on to carry your team.

7) Nazem Kadri – Colorado Avalanche
Kadri is a good player, but he’s not someone you should be relying on to carry your team. He’s best suited as a complementary piece on a good Avalanche team.

6) Jonathan Huberdeau – Florida Panthers
Huberdeau is a good player, but he takes too many penalties and isn’t someone you can rely on to carry your team. He’s best suited as a complementary piece on a good Panthers team.

NHL 22 Power Rankings: The Bottom 10 Coaches

10. Ron Rolston, Buffalo Sabres
Rolston has been at the helm of the Sabres for less than two seasons, but during that time, he has compiled a dismal 63-94-23 record.

The former USA Hockey coach took over in 2013, and guided the team to a 21-21-6 record in his first season. But the team took a Step Back last season, finishing with a dismal 16-36-8 record.

Rolston’s future with the team is very much in doubt, and it’s quite possible that he could be replaced if the team struggles out of the gate this season.
