Here are the November 7th, 2006 power rankings. Teams moving up significantly in the standings include Buffalo (6 to 2), Nashville (18 to 10), NY Islanders (20 to 16), Toronto (22 to 17), Boston (25 to 19), and NY Rangers (27 to 21). Those falling in the standings include Anaheim (1 to 6), Vancouver ( 7 to 14), Colorado (9 to 15), Washington (12 to 18), Ottawa (17 to 22), Los Angeles (19 to 24), Chicago (16 to 27) and Columbus (24 to 28). As you can see there is still a lot of fluctation in the rankings but we should start to see things stabalize more now. More of the eastern conference teams moved up and the western conference teams fell as the east generally did well against the west the past week. This is good because it was a little unbalanced the last couple of weeks.
