Power Rankings: It's a whole new (and early) look at the list

Updated: October 16, 2008, 5:42 PM ET

The Power Rankings are back for the new season.

And that's the key word this week: new.

It's too early to tell how things will really turn out this season, but certain trends are alarming some teams. Why are the Anaheim Ducks winless? Will the Colorado Avalanche be able to get decent goaltending to support a potent offensive lineup? Why is Sidney Crosby on pace for a 41-point season heading into Thursday's games?

Answers, and a clearer Rankings picture, in good time, little Grasshoppers.

In the meantime, rank your 30 teams here ... and enjoy!
