NHL Rankings for January 13...By Jerry Butler

1-Dallas Three strong lines, 3 solid groups of defenseman and 2 top notch goalies, the Stars have excellent depth up and down their roster.

2-Ottawa The Senators have not let all of the off the ice distractions affect their play on the ice.

3-Philadelphia Robert Esche for Brian Boucher turned out to be an excellent trade for the Flyers.

4-Vancouver Gritty Matt Cooke has been a very solid performer for the Canucks.

5-Detroit Soon to be 39 year old Brett Hull still knows where the net is.

6-St. Louis With 7 players in double digits in goals scored, the Blues continue to be a well balanced offensive team.

7-New Jersey The Devils will go only as far as their defense and goalie Martin Brodeur takes them.

8-Toronto Young defenseman Tomas Kaberle has played impressive hockey at both ends of the ice for the Leafs.

9-Edmonton The Oilers continue to be either red hot or ice cold when it comes to their offense.

10-Minnesota The Wild are a team that definitely needs help on offense.

11-Washington Jaromir Jagr broke out of the worst slump of his career with a 7 point effort versus the Panthers on Saturday. 12-Boston Shaky goaltending, shoddy defense and a very erratic offense have left the Bruins in their worst slump of the season.

13-Chicago Young goaltender Michael Leighton was very impressive in shutting out the Coyotes in his first start of the season.

14-NY Islanders The word out of NY is that the Isles are making a big push for Bruins free agent defenseman Kyle McLaren.

15-Colorado The Avalanche have played very poor defense in losing their last 3 home games.

16-Tampa Bay The Lightning have really missed injured defenseman Jassen Cullimore.

17-Montreal Twenty four year old defenseman Andrei Markov has developed into one of the Canadiens most dependable players.

18-Anaheim Forward Peter Sykora has turned out to be a solid addition for the Ducks.

19-Columbus Twenty two goal scorer Geoff Sanderson continues to be a very dangerous offensive threat for the Blue Jackets.

20-San Jose On too many occasions this season the Sharks have looked old and slow.

21-NY Rangers A much improved player in every facet of the game and sporting a 7 game scoring streak, feisty winger Matthew Barnaby is playing the best hockey of his career for the Rangers.

22-Pittsburgh Shaky goaltender J.S. Aubin will have to pick up his game with Johan Hedberg sidelined with a broken collarbone.

23-Los Angeles The Kings are hoping the return of Jason Allison and Eric Belanger to the lineup will help pull them out of their current funk.

24-Carolina The Hurricanes have managed to score just 8 goals in their last 7 home games.

25-Florida The Panthers did a heck of an impression of a Junior A team in their 12-2 loss to the Caps on Saturday.

26-Phoenix Thrust into action due to the injuries to Brian Boucher and Sean Burke, Zac Bierk has been very impressive between the pipes for the Coyotes.

27-Nashville Young David Legwand is steadily developing into a reliable NHL player.

28-Calgary The Flames had allowed 2 goals or less in 6 straight games before being blown out by the Blue Jackets on Saturday.

29-Buffalo With 12 goals in 32 games winger Ales Kotalik has been a very pleasant surprise for the Sabres.

30-Atlanta Ilya Kovalchuk definitely needs to improve in some areas of the game but with 24 goals in 42 games, there is no doubt he is a big-time NHL goal scorer.
