24. Florida Panthers 12-8-8: Somehow the Panthers have tied the Bruins with 32 points in the Atlantic Division. I am not buying this recent surge by the Panthers.

23. Colorado Avalanche 10-13-7: Last season the Avalanche lead by Matt Duchene and company were able to win the one goal games. This year those have been the games the Avalanche have been losing. On the 11, the Avs stopped a four game losing streak. They currently sit last in the Central Division.

22. Dallas Stars 11-13-5: The Stars Tyler Seguin is on pace for of the best season in Stars franchise history. Seguin leads the NHL with 23 goals, I bet Boston wishes he still plays there. Too bad the rest of his team has not joined his high level of play. The Stars sit second to last in the second central division.

21. New Jersey Devils 11-15-5: The Devils Jaromir Jagr has moved up to fifth on the all time points list. The Devils are an old and slow team.

20. Ottawa Senators 12-12-5: Paul Maclean was the fall guy for the struggles of the Ottawa Senators this week. The funny thing is the problems with the Senators were not all Maclean’s fault. Macclean didn’t over pay Bobby Ryan or trade away Jason Spezza and shrink the payroll to 30th in the NHL.
