We're trying out a new feature here at DBD: Power Ranking Roundup. It's a totally original idea that isn't being done anywhere else. #sarcasm
A bad stretch of four games, including an unimpressive win against the Canes at home sees the Stars fall three or four spots in most rankings, but with a big win in San Jose already in the books this week and another meeting on Thursday, there's definite opportunity to move right back on up with a good week.
Of course they'll have just finished at the Joe on Sunday night when these will all be recalculated, so we can guess pretty well what the sentiment will be on Monday morning. Several places this week said that the home and home with SJ would tell us a lot about the team, but I think the back to back with CBJ and DET will tell us a great deal more.
Shockingly few Brad Richards trade mentions this week.
