Season 21 Final Power Rankings

Another regular season is in the books, and it's time for the playoffs, but before they get started, let's take a look at the final power rankings.   #1 Dover was the strongest down the stretch, will their playoff let downs continue or will they bring home the title?  #2 Vancouver has 3 titles in the last 6 seasons, are they ready for another?  Or will a lower ranked team emerge, maybe defending champ #11 Colorado Springs?  A lot of interesting questions going into the playoffs.  The results of the last quarter of the season provided some interesting movement in the rankings as well.  Without further adieu, here is the complete final power rankings for the end of Season 21.  Good luck to the playoff teams!

4 Buffalo  91 71 11 Offense really brought it down the stretch

10 Boston  90 72 8 Mediocre towards the end, but managed to win division
