Well, he should update it today. Let's see what he does. If he drops the Pens not below 10th place, I will call ********.

Well, apparantly he's not going to update it 'til next Monday. If they're weekly power rankings I don't know why he'd skip a week, barring an emergency. Might have something to do with this tweet by you Val, it probably made him realize his rankings were garbage.

@tsnscottcullen Haha, but they were pretty sketchy then, too. How far will the Pens drop without Crosby? More than Phi w/o Pronger?

There seems to be a relatively recent outpouring of bias among national hockey media. Really, Dreger and Mackenzie are the only ones I can really deal with as far as providing objective insight. LeBrun has his obvious favorites (and man are they obvious when he tweets). Pierre McGuire is a caricature of an analyst. Ed Olczyk lost my attention during the SCF.

Cullen is nothing more than a glorified fan-boy posing as an expert.

rankings are up. cullen still has no clue. i think he does this on purpose so TSN.ca gets more hits. people just need to click and check out his stupidity.

The flyers went from 9th to 5th in two weeks, but i still think they are #2 behind the nucks.

the penguins lose crosby, lose a few games, and only dropped to 4th. flyers lose pronger and drop to 9 despite the fact that they are still winning. hhmmmmm

That's not even the worst, Aaron. He put the Hawks as 3rd. WTF?! The are 5-4-1 in the last 10 games and you put them 3rd?! Granted, they won a couple of games recently, but two of them were in a shootout and one was against the ****ing Islanders...

Flyers are 6-1 in the last 7, 7-3 in the last 10. All regulation wins, 9 games of 10 on the road, and he ranks us behind the ****ing Hawks. Matt Cullen is a ****ing moron. Plain and simple.

"Cullen" is Canadian slang for "lacking credibility." For example...

It's ok guys, Scott Cullen would only give the Flyers a #2 power ranking if they won the cup. The Pens would still be #1...

Maybe he thinks all the players that got dumped/traded after they won the SC are due to return within the next few days.

I think someone should call him out on this. If just Crosby and Pronger are out for both respective teams then Pronger should be ranked higher than Crosby in his math. Since his teams rankings are based upon the total of the individual rankings (if I read his explanation correct) then the sum of the Flyers' players should be more than the sum of the Penguins' as the Flyers are doing better than the Penguins. Of course that is dependent upon him updating his numbers as the season progresses, which I wouldn't wager he does. He can't use the whole the team is greater than the sum of its parts argument here.

He basically gave us the #1 spot to stop getting internet hate.

And Pronger being back. Because we sucked so much without him.

Scheduling I'm guessing since they played on Monday and Wednesday (2 games after ESPN's last rankings were out), won them both against good competition and the Flyers only played and won 1 game in the same time. That and they want to show some love to a Canadian team.

Stranger is the fact that LeBrun ranked the Flyers 2nd, yet last week they were ranked 1st by Burnside. Go figure...

At least Cullen's giving Bob some recognition, which he richly deserves with his play in January. But Cullen's still an idiot, as evident that the Flyers put together their best month of the season so far (10-2-0) without Pronger for most of it, while he dropped the Flyers by like 5 places in his power ranking because Pronger went on IR.

Yeah, that's really crappy of Cullen. When he puts it the way he does in the rankings, it seems like the Flyers didn't earn their top berth but rather got in because of their fans. Did someone in Philly piss in his Cheerios or something?

He also makes it sound not like the Flyers are better, but because Vancouver is worse. I don't like this sort of reasoning to begin with, and I definitely don't like it to decide 1st place. But anyway, the Flyers deserve to be there without that sort of reasoning.

His ranking of TB is even worse than his treatment of the Flyers.

Are these not "fantasy rankings"? Meaning, the NHL team rankings based on how their players are performing in "fantasy hockey". Like, if you have a fantasy team - this team has the best fantasy players. Meaning, the Caps and Penguins and Canucks have stars, same with Detroit. We have 8 players scoring but nobody in the top 20 of scoring. We have a solid D but nobody is putting up points.

Look at the site: It is under "fantasy news"

lots of fans criticized him when he dropped the flyers to 5 after gaining the lead in the league and leading the league in wins after beat the top teams in both conferences like montreal, penguins, and the nucks.
