PPR: Jonathan Quick takes over No. 1
The Kings' goalie -- with Jonathan Bernier lurking -- tops Player Power Rankings
During the season, the rankings are based on player production in terms of Puck Prospectus' GVT valuation metric. If you are unfamiliar with GVT and how it works, you can find more here.
Because this season is less than a week old, some odd names are near the top here: For example, the highest-ranked member of the Pittsburgh Penguins isn't Sidney Crosby -- it's Brent Johnson. Marian Hossa is ahead of any other teammate on the Chicago Blackhawks.
Check out the full rankings below. We'll be back every Monday with new editions.
