It's never too early to start on the 2016-17 Power Rankings.

It's been exactly a month since the Pittsburgh Penguins hoisted the Stanley Cup after beating the San Jose Sharks in Game 6 of the finals on June 12. While the summer of celebration is under way, all 31 teams (yes, 31) are building for next season and beyond through trades, free agency and the draft. On paper, at least, some teams have improved, while others continue to tweak their blueprints. This is where I've got them ranked. ("Last week" indicates where each team was ranked in our previous Power Rankings, which were the last ones of the regular season.)
