Stars are 21st in latest power rankings

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.
