TSN Power Rankings

from Scott Cullen of TSN,

#1 Chicago Blackhawks- Carrying on, despite missing two of their most prolific goal-scorers, the Blackhawks get their offence from other source, like rookie LW Brandon Saad, who now has 17 points in his last 16 games. 
Key Injuries: LW Patrick Sharp (shoulder), RW Marian Hossa (upper body), C Dave Bolland (foot).

#2 Boston Bruins- Can the acquisition of RW Jaromir Jagr jumpstart the Bruins' 24th-ranked power play that is 1-for-16 (6.3%) in the last eight games? 2-4-2 in those eight games, it's probably a good time to shake things up. 
Key Injuries: None.

#3 Montreal Canadiens- I wondered on Twitter about whether Habs D P.K. Subban would be a Norris Trophy contender, with Kris Letang and Erik Karlsson injured. He's offensively-oriented and doesn't face the toughest competition, but 28 points and plus-11 in 29 games puts him in the discussion. 
Key Injuries: D Raphael Diaz (concussion), LW Rene Bourque (concussion).

That’s maybe the most absurd power rankings in nhl history.  How they can rank anyone ahead of Pittsburgh is ridiculous.  And San Jose in the top 10???  Was this supposed to be an April fools joke?

LMAO.  Cullen’s power rankings list is a flat-out joke.  PIT should be the #1 team in the league with that ridiculous 15-game winning streak going on.

HAHAHAHAHAHA.  15 wins in a row not only doesn’t put you in the top spot…but it DROPS you from 2 to 4!  Hahahahahahaha.

This is a ranking for fantasy pools.  With Crosby getting injured that not only hurts anyone with Crosby in their pools but also anyone with his linemates and, maybe, anyone with any Pittsburgh defensemen.  Crosby’s injury really would be a huge blow to Pittsburgh’s fantasy stats.

Don’t misplace your anger, people.
