The lowest ranking in the upcoming video game is assumed to be of the Flyers. However, future trades and team performance can remove them from ranking in the bottom zone.

Blackhawks and Islanders have traded their star players in recent years. As a result, they are guessed to have low ranks. Though Chicago has the top draft prospect, Connor Bedard, he is not yet professional.

The assumed rating for the Jackets and Senators is 75 since the teams are in a building phase with younger players on their roster. The projected ranks are subject to change with trades.
