The ESPN NHL power rankings are out again today and the Stars dropped four spots from 17th to 21st. Scott Burnside's comment on the Stars:
Another team determined to play itself right out of the playoff hunt, the Stars have lost all three since the break and been outscored 17-5. Good thing they resolved their goaltending issues by adding Kari Lehtonen and keeping Marty Turco.
By the way, the Capitals are ranked No. 1 by Burnside. His thoughts on Washington:
Caps hit the break on a three-game winless streak but have won their first three post-Olympic games to re-establish themselves as the cream of the NHL crop. GM George McPhee's deadline deals paying immediate dividends.
Just passing it along.
