The top teams in the NHL are starting to claim their spots atop the rest of the competition, while the bottom feeders are slowly coming back down the earth in this week's TFP Power Rankings, presented by True Rivalry.


Last Week


1 1 It doesn't look like anything is slowing the Canadiens down right now, not even an injury to Carey Price.
2 5 Six straight wins and goals coming from multiple suspects means the Rangers are back in the mix in the East.
3 2 As great as Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn have been, 23-year-old defenseman John Klingberg is starting to steal some headlines.
4 4 Alex Ovechkin is starting to turn it on. Look out.
5 9 Despite all the injuries they've been plagued with, the Blues have won 3 straight and aren't slowing down any time soon.
6 3 The Predators are such a well-rounded unit, adding one more offensive threat could make them deadly.
7 6 The Blackhawks are a little too middle-of-the-pack right now, but still have all the tools to remain a top-seeded team.
8 10 Minnesota has done already without Zach Parise in the lineup, so far, but you can be sure they want him back as soon as possible.
9 8 Kings captain Dustin Brown finally got on the board with his first goal of the season. He leads the team in shots and could have just needed that monkey off his back to get going.
10 7 The Islanders seem to be getting more secondary scoring help, and that could ease the pressure on John Tavares' shoulders.
11 13 Ben Button has been a solid addition to Vancouver's blueline, picking up eight assists so far this season.
12 14 It's only a matter of time before the offense explodes out of this group, right?
13 15 Offensively, the Jets seem to have things exactly where they want them. Defensively, however, needs improvement.
14 20 The youth movement is taking over in Detroit, which could compliment Pavel Datsyuk nicely once he's back in the mix.
15 18 Arizona's secondary scoring is starting to make an impact, which could keep them in the fold in a surprisingly-weak Pacific Division (for now).
16 17 The Senators are a pesky bunch, and with Mark Stone back in the lineup, they should continue to compete for home ice this season.
17 12 We're just wondering when Jonathan Huberdeau will wake up from the funk that he's (still) in.
18 11 Steven Stamkos has eight goals on the year, but only he and Victor Hedman have more than 10 points on the season in Tampa.
19 22 Kyle Palmieri has stepped up of late and now has five goals and seven assists for 12 points in 15 games.
20 21 The Bruins need to improve at home if they want to be a playoff contender this season. To date, they only have 1 home win.
21 16 Oh no. Does the trade speculation over Patrick Marleau mean the Sharks are going to blow things up? Didn't they sign Joel Ward & Paul Martin to compete this season?
22 19 Did anybody expect Jake Voracek to have 0 goals in the team's first 15 games?
23 30 They're slowly getting things back on track, and they have the talent to rebound, but man what a rough start to the season they've had.
24 26 Buffalo has a lot to look forward to this season, but it's going to be a bumpy road until goaltending is stable and Robin Lehner's back from injury.
25 25 The Hurricanes are starting to come back down to earth, which could result in trade talk picking up around their star players.
26 23 Colorado is just one of those teams that can turn it on at any moment... they just haven't done that. And they still need help on D.
27 28 The Flames continue to struggle, and until the defense wakes up, it's going to be a rough kick-at-the-can in Calgary.
28 27 We've said it before and we'll say it again, the Maple Leafs will be in almost every game -- they just don't have enough talent to finish.
29 26 It's the same old story in Edmonton. Even with Connor McDavid, the team's defensive game, at both ends of the rink, is poor.
30 29 They're playing much better under John Tortorella, but the Blue Jackets are still a step behind the rest. That should change soon.
