Player Power Rankings IV: Dreeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwww
Holy crap, Doughty's been dominant. Who else moves around in this week's power rankings?
1. Anze Kopitar (Last Week: 1)
Had a really bad turnover yesterday in overtime. That's the one thing he's done wrong in, like, a month.
2. Drew Doughty (Last Week: 2)
Take a look at what Drew Doughty has done the last two games. Just look at it.
3. Justin Williams (Last Week: 4)
Williams is scoring goals at his highest rate since 2006. Though he stole one from Kopitar yesterday. Selfish.
4. Mike Richards (Last Week: 3)
Check out Nick's quarter-season review to see how much better he's been this season.
5. Ben Scrivens (Last Week: 7)
Almost broke a franchise record for shutout streak. Allowed two goals on 15 shots last night, and it was technically his worst start of the season. He's got another month or so to keep this up.
6. Jake Muzzin (LW: 9)
I'll let Rudy Kelly handle this one.
7. Dustin Brown (LW: 8)
[His +/- luck] won't last, but neither will his scoring drought now that he's back on the top line.
A assist last game! A goal the game before! HE'S BACK, BABY!
8. Dwight King (LW: 10)
On track for a Jeff Carter-esque goals to assists ratio (3.5:1). Not a bad thing.
9. Willie Mitchell (LW: 6)
Mitchell-Martinez (comparatively) struggled this past week. The penalty kill has been good, though.
10. Robyn Regehr (LW: 13)
Also gets a boost from the Kings' PK success. TOP TEN!
11. Slava Voynov (LW: 12)
He and Regehr have put together some strong performances overall. Robert wrote more about him here.
12. Tyler Toffoli (LW: 5)
As the scoring dropped off this past week, so did his ice time. Let's see what he's got in the tank.
13. Matt Frattin (LW: 19)
His last two games were probably his best two games as a King. Two points against the Lightning, three penalties drawn against the Devils.
14. Linden Vey (LW: 11)
Darryl Sutter's playing mind games, and he's slowed down offensively, but he's still getting time on the penalty kill.
15. Jarret Stoll (LW: 24)
Back in the lineup and playing well so far. Nothing flashy, but playing well.
16. Alec Martinez (LW: 15)
Up and down. Hit the post against the Rangers; that's the closest he's come to a point in two weeks.
17. Daniel Carcillo (LW: 20)
Clinging onto that lineup spot and not doing too badly with it.
18. Tanner Pearson (LW: 16)
It was beginning to look like Pearson was over his head, but he has had a couple decent games. Still the favorite for demotion once Carter or Clifford gets back.
19. Jordan Nolan (LW: 14)
Followed up a very good week with a highly inactive week. Did this to Peter Harrold, though.
20. Trevor Lewis (LW: 18)
He's taken my "I just don't know anymore" designation from Frattin. Over/under: ten points for the season? Five?
21. Colin Fraser (LW: 17)
Fraser also didn't see the ice this week. If Linden Vey stays up, he's VERY expendable.
22. Jeff Carter (LW: 21)
23. Jonathan Quick (LW: 22)
24. Matt Greene (LW: 23)
25. Kyle Clifford (LW: 24)
N/A. Martin Jones (LW: Not Ranked)
Agree? Disagree? Tell us how you'd change the rankings.
