From Sixth To Second!

Danno sends over the new NHL.com top 16 rankings, and look at those crazy Canadiens!

Ditto for what they say about Michel Therrien.

Here’s the top five, and the full Super 16 list can be seen by clicking here

RANK TEAM
LAST WEEK COMMENTARY
1 1 Pittsburgh Penguins: When their 15-game win streak started, they were winning high-scoring affairs. Now the Penguins aren’t even letting the other team score. Their last three victories in March were all by shutout and they haven’t allowed a goal in 228 minutes, 24 seconds.
2 6 Montreal Canadiens: Everyone seems to think the Jack Adams Award has already been shipped to Paul MacLean’s home, but what about the job Michel Therrien has done in Montreal? The Habs still have a chance of going from worst to first (or at least second) in the East.
3 4
Minnesota Wild: With Chicago and Anaheim plodding along after hot starts, the Wild have been playing the West’s best hockey for two weeks. They’ve won eight of nine and rallied from down two goals to beat the Kings 4-3 in a shootout Saturday.
4 2 Chicago Blackhawks: Even with their blowout victory in Detroit on Sunday afternoon, the Blackhawks are 5-5-0 since their record-setting start to the season. But the returns of Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp are just around the corner.
5 10 Vancouver Canucks: The Canucks had their six-game winning streak brought to a screeching halt with a 4-0 loss in Edmonton. The Wild have been pushing the Canucks in the Northwest Division, and the banged-up Canucks have responded to the challenge.

  1. Guaranteed that idiot scott cullen will list them 4th or worse using his idiotic system. It is good to see an un-idiotic and unbiased evaluation of a very good Habs team.

    This year end will be interesting. Our guys will be in the running Coach of the Year; Calder Rookie of the Year (Gallagher); Norris (Subban) and Vezina (Price). Price or Subban will win the Conn Smythe and we’ll share Lord stanley’s mug come June. It will be a very interesting.

  2. Could be an excellent spring for us, Mayo. But things have to go accordingly. Everybody’s healthy etc. I was really enjoying the new Bourque this year. A great skater with nice size, sort of a power forward which is so nice to have. Now we don’t know when he’ll be back and I hope it’s soon. To me he’s an important piece of the puzzle. He’s been so different from last season.
