It's tough to draw any deep insights from the first six days of regular season action, but it’s always easier to write off a fast start than a slow one. Keep an eye then on Boston and Pittsburgh, both of which have looked inept in their own zones in the early going.

Biggest jump: San Jose Sharks (21 to 4)

Biggest drop: Columbus Blue Jackets (8 to 29)
