1 3 Tampa is a scoring machine this season and they're only going to get better. They'll be pushing for first in the East the rest of the way.
2 14 Say what? Yeah, the Islanders sit #2 on this list, and for good reason. They've been stellar of late and are making a sound case for a strong run in the East.
3 7 Nobody expected the Canucks to be this good this season, but the smart moves made in the off-season has propelled this team atop the West, right now.
4 6 The Penguins are facing a bit of a hurdle ahead, as injuries are mounting.
5 1 Battling the mumps, the Ducks still seem to be solid. It will be interesting to see if Ilya Bryzgalov cracks this lineup full time.
6 2 Montreal's game has been decent this past week, but they'll need to step up if they want to compete with Tampa and Boston for top spot in the Atlantic.
7 4 The Predators continue to do the little things right and that's kept them in the hunt in the early-goings of this season.
8 20 Calgary continues to surprise. Led by rising star Mark Giordano and a sound defensive corps, the Flames are getting contributions for almost everyone on the ice.
9 9 The Blackhawks are starting to heat up and that will mean more pressure on the rest of the Central Division.
10 5 The defending champs seem comfortable, from afar, with their game, but coach Darryl Sutter is looking for consistency from his top players.
11 11 Like Chicago, Detroit is starting to get rolling, as well. There is plenty of talent on this team and they're proving they can compete with the best of them.
12 13 The Blues were going to be a team to watch all year, even without Martin Brodeur. But his addition adds a pretty cool, new storyline.
13 8 San Jose's season has been an on/off one, so far. There's plenty of speculation surrounding this group, but the bottom line is they need to be better, overall.
14 27 The injury bug is starting to hit Winnipeg, and that could mean trouble for a team that has clawed its way back into playoff contention.
15 12 Speaking of injury trouble, Minnesota is starting to find some of its own.
16 23 The Leafs seem to be getting things in order, led by solid performance at all ends of the ice. Jonathan Bernier has upped his game, as well, which they'll be counting on the rest of the way.
17 16 Injuries has hurt this team's overall performance, but with Zdeno Chara inching closer to a return, and David Krejci not that far off, either, the Bruins should be playing better soon enough.
18 21 Don't look now, but the Panthers are playing solid hockey. It will be interesting to see what GM Dale Tallon does if this team keeps up this pace.
19 15 This isn't exactly the first quarter the Capitals expected to have this season. They're middle-of-the-pack right now, and that simply isn't good enough.
20 19 The Rangers seem to be slowing down a little, which isn't what coach Alain Vigneault wants, whatsoever.
21 10 With just three wins in their last 10, there are some signs for concern with this Ottawa squad. Maybe it's just a minor funk, but they need to get going before they fall too far back.
22 18 They're an older squad, in terms of their top-tier talent, and the Devils' style of player isn't going to wow-you. But they need some of their younger studs to step up if they want to compete for a playoff spot.
23 17 Dallas' defensive game has played a big role in their struggles this season. The offense is clicking, for the most part, but their defense is off and Kari Lehtonen needs to be better between the pipes.
24 22 Patrick Roy is trying to get this team on track, but it seems like they're a little different than they were last season. Maybe a minor change is needed?
25 28 The Coyotes need some help up front and if that means trading away someone like Keith Yandle, so be it.
26 30 Buffalo isn't looking THAT bad these days, but that should change.
27 24 The Flyers are struggling. They're a one line team right now and GM Ron Hextall is doing his best to find a fix.
28 29 The Hurricanes started off slow, picked up steam, and dropped again. That should stay the course this season.
29 25 It's too bad this team has been riddled with injuries, because they're actually pretty good (when healthy).
30 26 It's gotten pretty bad in Edmonton, and everyone's just waiting for at least one shoe to drop.
