Safimod’s Power Rankings – Week 8

Published: Wednesday, Aug 16th 2017, 4:08pm

1.    Calgary (Even)

2.    Edmonton (Even)

3.    Winnipeg (up 1)

4.    Saskatchewan (up 1)

5.    BC (down 2)

6.    Montreal (up 1)

7.    Toronto (down 1)

8.    Ottawa (even)

9.    Hamilton (even)

It’s no shock that we see Western teams occupy the top 5 spots, as any one of them would be at worst tied for best in the East (Saskatchewan) in the standings right now. The East has won 2 games vs the Western division this season, and it doesn’t look like that’s changing any time soon. Saskatchewan vaults over BC after the BC beat down on Sunday night at New Mosaic, and Montreal and Toronto swap places after their game. Winnipeg moves up a spot for walking over the 0-7 Ticats. Everyone else stays put. This week will be interesting. With the games on tap, we could definitely see a little more movement in the weekly power rankings

**NB I considered putting Ed Gainey ahead of both Hamilton and Ottawa**
