I have been away for most of the past 3 weeks so my posts here have been pretty sparse to non-existant. But I am back now so hopefully things will get back to normal. Anyway, here are this weeks Power Rankings which are dominated by the western conference teams. What do you guys think? Is the western conference really that much better than the east? The western conference dominated inter-conference play last year and seems to be doing so again this year and the Ducks fairly easily beat the Senators in the cup finals last year.
