Yes, ranking the teams before the start of the regular season can be a bit subjective, but it's not like we didn't have anything to go on when putting our first Power Rankings together. You can get a pretty good idea as to which teams are going to be at the top and bottom of the NHL based on what they did a season ago, and what, if anything, they did to get better or worse over the summer.

The Boston Bruins, for example, open as the No. 1 team in our debut rankings because, for one, they earned it by taking home Lord Stanley's Cup last June. But also because they're returning pretty much all of that team and should get increased production from youngsters like Brad Marchand and Tyler Seguin.

At the other end of the spectrum, it's probably going to be a long season for the folks in Ottawa.
