Power Rankings are a reflection of the way I rank teams to give myself a head start handicapping.  For instance, the Pittsburgh Penguins would never be a team I would play against but keep in mind that doesn't mean lay big numbers.  If the Penguins are at a reasonable -150 or less I would bet them every time
