NHL Player Rankings November 1, 2013

The NHL sure can change in a week or two. My November 1st NHL Player Power Rankings have 18 new players on the list from two weeks ago, and has seen surprise names like Steen and Couture crack the top ten. Perry came out of nowehere to take the number 12 spot, Getzlaf jumped 31 spots to take hold of the 15th position, and Kessel surprisingly made the top 5. Yes, it could be that we are still only a little over month into the season, so things can change drastically. However, these seismic changes have never been reached to these proportions. Toronto and San Jose lead the league with 5 players in the rankings, while quite a few other teams have no one on the list.
