March 6- 2007 NHL Power Rankings

Nashville and Buffalo once again traded the top spot, while the top ten remained unchanged as far as the teams go. Meanwhile, Edmonton and Montreal are dropping like rocks. Where did your team finish this week?

Rank (Pv)
1 (2) 44-16-5
Daniel Briere is the best player you don’t know in the NHL.
2 (1) 44-18-5 Paul Kariya is back to his old self. Add Peter Forsberg to the mix with this team, I don’t know how they can’t win at least the West.
3 (3) 41-16-9 The Wings’ IR list looks like a starting five on an All-Star team.
4 (4) 40-19-7 How do you know that your goaltender should be the MVP? Zach Parise leads the team with just 29 goals.  
5 (5) 39-17-11 Teemu Selanne has the MVP talk swirling around him.
6 (8) 38-22-5 Take the Devils comment, take out Zach Parise and insert Daniel Sedin.
7 (6) 38-22-5
Marty Turco must know the playoffs are close, he couldn’t stop a beach ball if he tried.
8 (7) 39-25-2 Evgeni Nabokov is back, this team is near 100%. Watch out Nashville.
9 (9) 36-22-4 Dany Heatley has found his stride, and is one of the top forwards in the eastern conference.
10 (10) 37-26-4 Martin St. Louis has regained his championship form, if they can get more consistency from their goaltending, this could be a formidable team.
11 (11) 36-23-7 Manny Fernandez is set to return this week, what does that mean for Nicklas Backstrom?
12 (12) 35-21-9 It looks like the Kansas City Pens are going to be one tough team in the playoffs. Yes, the Kansas City Pens.
13 (13) 35-21-9
The Northwest looks to be an insane division down the stretch.
14 (15) 34-23-10 Marian Hossa leads the Thrash in every offensive category.
15 (17) 33-23-10 Ryan Smith will get this team the scoring punch they need.
16 (16) 33-28-7
The Southeast is wild as we enter the stretch run, but it’s plausible that the defending champs don’t even make the playoffs.
17 (14) 33-29-6
The Habs are fading fast, and now, Alexi Kovalev calls out his team. Good try, Alexi, but it’s too little too late.  
18 (19) 32-28-5
Boston might be in last, but they’re making a desperate push for the playoffs.  
19 (21) 32-27-7 The Rangers are fading quickly, and Shanahan may not be able to return by the end of the year. Maybe it’s time for a youth movement in New York. Get Messier on the phone.
20 (19) 31-26-9 Pavel Kubina is expected to return this week.
21 (22) 32-29-5 Too little, too late. The 2007 Colorado Avalanche.
22 (20) 30-30-6 Without Ryan Smith, the Oilers belong where the Flyers are.
23 (23) 28-27-10 Who is Lee Stempniak? He now leads the Blues in goals.
24 (25) 27-26-13 Pre-season prediction: This is a clueless team. And tonight’s lotto numbers are 7-19-28-33-40.
25 (24) 27-35-3 The most intresting thing the Coyotes fans have seen this season was last night, on Monday Night Raw.
26 (27) 26-33-7 Rick Nash is still buried in that pile.
27 (26) 24-30-12 Alexander Ovechkin tried, but this team just isn’t talented enough.
28 (28) 24-33-9
Injuries played a part in this team not being competitive.
29 (29) 22-33-10 Not only will the start the season in London, they’re going to camp in Austria. Still, no one’s going to care about the Kings.
30 (30) 17-37-11 It’s almost unfair to keep them in last, at least they’re trying to win now.

Thanks For your great review. I’m very happy that Peter Forsberg is finally back on the ice again after very long time.
