We're now a couple weeks into the NHL campaign and one thing is clear: the Montreal Canadiens are for real.

Nine players have recorded double figures in points, helping the club rank first overall in offense. In addition, star goaltender Carey Price and the defense have been spectacular too, good for second in goals-against per game.

Meanwhile, the Dallas Stars, New York Rangers and other contenders have played up to their potential -- and some surprises (like the New Jersey Devils, who have won eight of their last 10) have emerged.

Take a look above to scroll through our latest rankings -- but remember, the list might look drastically different next week.
