Please someone make this stop. Of course, the fact that Washington is now ten points ahead of the Thrashers in the exact same number of games should not shock anyone. Tampa Bay's fall from the top of many power rankings, though, should surprise you. They've started stringing together loss after loss, winning only once in their last seven games. The loss of Vincent Lecavalier to a broken hand for several weeks is a problem, but even with Steven Stamkos as Marty St. Louis churning out the goals, team defense is sluggish for yet another season as none of their defensemen are a plus player. Dan Ellis is proving to be the better of their two goalies, but even he's been awful recently, losing his past two games and allowing ten goals between the losses.

Carolina and Florida can't seem to find their footing, and continue to be transition teams. Florida's saving grace is the fact that they've played only fifteen games, three games fewer than Atlanta and Washington.
