This weeks ESPN power rankings

Not that I don't take ESPN's hockey analysis with anything more than a grain of the finest salts but does anyone else find it completely ridiculous that they dropped the rangers a spot from 16th in the league to 17th this week? Not only did we do pretty well on a long road trip but then we came back and gave the best team in the league a run for their money and still got a point out of the game even if we did give up a two goal lead. From what they say in the article, it also seems they punish us for Weekes's good play because it "raises questions" about our number one goalie. Since when is it bad for having your backup bail out your number one when he is in a funk?! Our defense has gone from attrocious to acceptable and our special teams are finally doing their job. Also, from their rankings which currently hold the ducks and sabres one and two in the league, the fact that we pulled three out of a possible four points from these teams during the week makes the drop all the more ridiculous.
