The Ducks move into the second slot thanks to the return of Teemu Selanne, but the Red Wings are still hanging on to first.
OK, break time is over. Time to get down to business. For some teams, say the Toronto Maple Leafs, this means trying to clear the deck of big contracts to make room for prospects.

The Pens may have lost Sidney Crosby, but their solid play of late has them in the No. 2 spot behind the Red Wings in this week's Power Rankings.

The Senators may have upended the Red Wings in their Saturday matchup, but it's Detroit who hangs on to top spot in this week's THN.com Power Rankings.
The game lived up to the billing: The Battle of the Titans. And although the Red Wings lost 3-2, it’s going to take more than one road defeat, albeit to their nearest challengers, the Ottawa Senators, to bounce them from the top of The Hockey News’ Power Rankings, particularly when they played their backup goalie, Dominik Hasek.

Pittsburgh, Calgary and San Jose are headed in the right direction, but the Red Wings continue to hang on to the top spot in this week's team-by-team rankings.
It’s time to work off that Christmas paunch and get to breaking those New Year’s Resolutions.
