Yeah, apparently Kopitar's injury knocked us down.

I'm fine with not being 1st, but I figured 4th. How many teams have had the luxury of returning with their entire line up from last season since the 2004-2005 lockout, nevermind the defending Stanley Cup champions?

Scott Cullen has some really weird math formula he uses to derive his rankings. I get that and support it, but he leaves zero room for adjustments when the math doesn't add up (like in this case).

When was the last time a cup champion started the next year 10th? It's insulting.
