We are starting to see some stabalization of the power rankings now that the teams have played 15-20 games and we are also seeing a better mix of eastern and western conference teams near the top of the list. Five of the top 11 teams are now from the eastern conference is what one should expect.
The big risers on the week are Detroit (5th to 1st), Carolina (11th to 6th), Toronto (17th to 11th), Tampa Bay (23rd to 15th), and Calgary (26th to 17th). The big droppers are Minnesota (1st to 5th), Dallas (4th to 8th), Edmonton (7th to 12th), and Colorado (15th to 23rd).
