It has only been three days since the last edition of Bleacher Report's NHL Power Rankings, but they have been three extremely active days.
The trade deadline has seen significant changes in the balance of power in the NHL. From traded stars like Martin St. Louis, Thomas Vanek, Ryan Miller and Marian Gaborik to the kind of depth moves that teams like Pittsburgh and Chicago indulged in, each of those deals in some way impacted the expected standings of the NHL.
Because of that, our panel is back again to rank the entire league from No.1 to No. 30. Dave Lozo, Allan Mitchell, Carol Schram, Rob Vollman and I all voted this week. The criteria are a little different, with the vote still focusing heavily on recent performance, but it's been adjusted for the moves made at the deadline.
Read on to see where every NHL team ranks, and please note the rankings are the result of the panel's voting, not one person's decision.
