2009-2010 Power Rankings: Week 1
RK (PV) TEAM REC. COMMENT
1 Penguins 0-0-0 Hey, they’re the defending Stanley Cup champs. They get a free pass to the top of the rankings for at least a week.
2 Sharks 0-0-0 These are regular-season rankings, not playoff rankings, which explains why the Sharks are here and not in the trash bin.
3 Flyers 0-0-0 This is a good, big, deep, hungry team. All eyes are on goalie Ray Emery now.
4 Capitals 0-0-0 The Caps are grittier up front, but the defense and goaltending will have to prove themselves if Washington wants to get to the top of the heap.
5 Blackhawks 0-0-0 Can the youthful Hawks play with monster expectations? Why not?
6 Red Wings 0-0-0 The Wings will have to prove significant personnel changes won’t set them back too much in the ultra-competitive Western Conference.
7 Flames 0-0-0 Look for big bounce-back seasons from goalie Miikka Kiprusoff and defensemanDion Phaneuf.
8 Bruins 0-0-0 Defending Vezina Trophy and Norris Trophy winners Tim Thomas and Zdeno Chara suggest the Bruins will remain a force in the East even without Phil Kessel.
9 Ducks 0-0-0 If the goaltending tandem of Jonas Hiller and Jean-Sebastien Giguere doesn’t implode, the Ducks are a dark horse to win the Pacific Division.
10 Lightning 0-0-0 The Lightning could be the surprise team in the Eastern Conference if Mike Smithstays healthy in goal.
