No Respect-Preseason Power Rankings
 
TSN Power Rankings: http://www.tsn.ca/fantasy_news/rankings/nhl/

What do we have to do to earn some respect :dunno:

I mean, they have us ranked the lowest out of our divisional teams.. Come on man.

I don't pay much attention to power rankings since rankings are dumb in terms of its use in professional sports.
We could win the cup in the next 2 or more seasons and still get no respect from these ignorant and hate based rankings and predictions.

The 'pre' rankings are based almost purely on the roster, not very much on past performance.

Other than stop being called the Phoenix Coyotes, the answer is acquire top flight PPG goalscoring forwards.

People look at the Coyotes roster and just think it can't possibly work.

Course I'd rather have some wins than respect.

18th in goals last year and 6th in the West:

Well, we have some slight respect now based on the rankings from SI that has us right now @ #13:

Phoenix Coyotes (42-27-13)
Every year, we badmouth them for all sorts of things (miserable ownership situation, apathetic fans, boring playing style) and yet they have become a perennial playoff team. Their Western Conference finals appearance was a landmark achievement, and a new owner seems to finally be in place. They have a top goalie in Mike Smith, but it's hard to see how these guys go as far next spring. Then again, isn't that what we said all of last year?

Its because we are not listening to them:naughty:

I like the boys not getting much, if any respect, let 'em play with a chip on their shoulder knowing they'd best stick to Tipp's style of play. Blue collar sport, blue collar mentality, works for me and has served all of us well these last few years.

TSN is a **** network, just ignore them.

Vip 01-11-2013 01:49 PM

Nothing new to see here. We will never be respected and quite frankly, I am okay with it. I know its a very long shot, but can you guys imagine the melt down HF would have if we won the cup? :naughty:

DesertDawg 01-11-2013 02:00 PM

...and they still continue to have the Pens on top, just like they did last year! More of a popularity contest than gauging who is the 'best'.

so
what is more important
scoring goals
or
keep the other team from scoring goals

korpedo 01-11-2013 02:12 PM

I enjoy the underdog status

That is the ultimate question :laugh:

We just so happen to be very good at the second one.

actually it's a trick question and part of why that power rating is bogus
neither selection will guarantee wins
The real answer is outplaying the opposition... and since they aren't the best offensive team, the team is built around a great defensive team that must stay discipline and create their offense when the opportune arrises, and I'm back babbling again talking about what most of us already know...

Primrose Everdeen 01-11-2013 03:28 PM

I think most of us, including myself, enjoy our underdog status.

Better to fly under the radar.

AZcoyotes 01-11-2013 03:41 PM

Florida got the same disrespect.

Sinurgy 01-11-2013 07:44 PM

I'd much rather they be underrated than overrated. Being put high in the rankings just puts undue pressure on the team to perform. Flying under the radar far better in my opinion!

Devils Advocate 01-11-2013 10:31 PM

pre-season respect is worth Jack squat.

post-season respect is priceless.

Do not doubt coach Dave Tippett. Don’t do it. The playoffs will return to the desert for the fourth straight season behind a diverse defense and excellent goaltending. Can 35-goal man Radim Vrbata bounce back from a muted playoff run, and without Ray Whitney?

I listen to a lot of KNBR (San Fran radio) and they had their weekly interview with one of the Sharks play-by-play guys. He stated that the Coyotes are definitely in the conversation to win the division and get a high playoff seed. Its nice to hear what other organizations think of this team's chances. The haters can hate all they want. One day they will be right but they will look foolish while they are wrong.

Hating on the Coyotes has become the "in" thing to do in the Canadian media and with Canadian bloggers.

Let them hate. The team they feel that we don't deserve is better than the team they root for.
