The Puck Prospectus metric GVT (goals versus threshold) allows us to compare players at every position to determine who the true leaders are. There wasn't much movement in the power rankings this week, with Sidney Crosby recapturing the top position among forwards and Henrik Lundqvist skyrocketing into the No. 10 spot.

For more on Lundqvist's recent magnificence, see E.J. Hradek's blog on the Monday 10.
