Who puts the power in the power play?

Dustin Brown of the Los Angeles Kings is pretty much lapping the field these days in the NHL Penalty Plus/Minus rankings; his +52 is fully twice that of his closest competition, Calgary's Jarome Iginla and former teammate Patrick O'Sullivan, who was traded last week to Edmonton. At this rate, Brown is creating 4 power plays for the Kings for every 5 games they play, having drawn 70 penalties of the 2, 4, or 5 minute variety, while only taking 18 himself (this includes Penalty Shots as well). That combination of determination and discipline provides a significant boost to the Kings' prospects as a team each night.

Things are much tighter at the bottom of the list, where San Jose's Rob Blake holds a slim advantage over Chris Pronger of Anaheim, -31 to -27.

NOTE: I believe I've made adjustments in here for all the player movement that has taken place recently, but if you spot something that needs to be fixed, please drop a note in the comments.
