Showing Bias?

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Who doesn’t love rankings? Rankings exist to spark debate. Rankings are subjective, determined by opinions, educated or otherwise. Opinions can’t be wrong, Except, of course, when they are.

Which brings us to the fun exercises in which the good folks at NHL.com have been intermittently engaged throughout this coronavirus-induced stoppage of play. A panel of writers has been polled to create a “Super 16” position-by-position ranking of the top players of the expansion era.

What could go wrong?

Well, Billy Smith ranked ahead of Henrik Lundqvist, for one. And Tony Esposito ranked ahead of Lundqvist, for another. Oh, and Patrik Elias failing to garner a single vote as one of the top 16 left wings from the 13 people who cast ballots, and what in the world is that all about? Then there’s the matter of Scott Niedermayer out-polling Scott Stevens on defense.
