This week, there is some minor shuffling in the East, while the West continues to shuffle. The top 5 in the East maintain the same, while the top 2 in the West stay the same.
At this point, the Stars are deserving of attention. No longer can Los Angeles be considered the favorites for the Pacific due to their recent slide. Instead, the Stars and Avalanche appear to be fighting each other for third-best team in the West. Nashville made a recent surge and they could join the conversation soon, but the longer the season goes, the less shuffling we can expect at the top. At least in the East.
