You're looking at the preseason initial ratings. Switch that over to 2007-08 Regular/playoffs using the dropdown on the top-right! There you'll see the Rangers #9, not #2.
Additionally, please, for the love of god do not consider the playoff anticipations until the system can digest a few games played! In fact, the initial standing is simply based on the team's ratings from last season. In pre-season, prospect rankings are considered.
Ya gotta give NHLDRS a few games played by all teams before the ranks really make sense - from the start, it's pretty much speculation.
Anyway, though ya might have wanted to know - I made that site!
