No. 21: Dallas Stars

Last Week: 16th

Record: 10-11-6 (26 points)

One of the favorites in the Western Conference to begin the season, the Stars have been hampered with injuries that have stalled the first quarter of the year for them. Good for them, though, the entire Western Conference is down this year, so Dallas finds itself just two points out of a playoff spot.
