PittScores Rankings: Midseason Version

Well  we are officially past the halfway point in the season, since each team has played at least 41 games.  These rankings are a little different then the ones I posted on the NHL board though, because only each teams first 41 games are taken into account in this version and there is nothing taken into account about who has been hot lately, because they are for the season as a whole.  Here are the rankings:

1. New Jersey Devils

  • 3.0802 rating

2.  Chicago Blackhawks

  • 3.0648 Rating

3. San Jose Sharks

  • 2.6364 Rating

4. Washington Capitals

  • 1.9994 Rating

5. Pittsburgh Penguins

  • 1.8372 Rating

6. Buffalo Sabres

  • 1.7842 Rating

7. Vancouver Canucks

  • 1.3764 Rating

8. Phoenix Coyotes

  • 1.3029 Rating

9. Calgary Flames

  • 1.2801 Rating

10. Colorado Avalanche

  • 0.9987 Rating

11. Nashville Predators

  • 0.7801 Rating

12. Los Angeles Kings

  • 0.6213 Rating

13. Boston Bruins

  • 0.3838 Rating

14. Detroit Red Wings

  • 0.1945 Rating

15. Dallas Stars

  • -0.2839 Rating

16. Ottawa Senators

  • -0.3518 Rating

17. Atlanta Thrashers

  • -0.5347 Rating

18. Philadelphia Flyers

  • -0.5347 Rating

19. Minnesota Wild

  • -0.6779 Rating

20. New York Rangers

  • -0.6932 Rating

21. Montreal Canadiens

  • -0.8660 Rating

22. St. Louis Blues

  • -1.2999 Rating

23. Florida Panthers

  • -1.3567 Rating

24. Tampa Bay Lightning

  • -1.4200 Rating

25. Anaheim Ducks

  • -1.5808 Rating

26. Edmonton Oilers

  • -1.8373 Rating

27. New York Islanders

  • -1.9197 Rating

28. Columbus Blue Jackets

  • -2.1000 Rating

29. Toronto Maple Leafs

  • -2.1671 Rating

30. Carolina Hurricanes

  • -3.6548 Rating



Notes:

  • Only 1 Original 6 team in the top 10 (Blackhawks)
  • In the top 10, there are 6 Western Conference teams and 4 Eastern Conference
  • The Southeast Division owns 3 of the bottom 10 positions (Panthers, Lightning, and Hurricanes)
  • 2 Canadian Teams in the top 10 (Canucks and Flames) and 2 in the bottom 10 (Canadiens and Maple Leafs)
  • I think I will be renaming 30th place the Hurricanes award, since they have held the spot since these rankings were created
  • I was gonna put more, but this took long enough and I'm lazy

QOTD 6/15/09 Favorite NHL playoff moment

What was your favorite moment from the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs? For me, my obvious choice would be the Penguins winning the cup, which it is.  I absolutely can't get enough of watching them lift the cup.  Here are some of my other favorites:
  • Talbot's SHH after fighting Daniel Carcillo in game 6. VIDEO .  The score was 3-0 Flyers at the time, and this fight turned the game around.  The Penguins scored around a minute later, and ended up winning the game 5-3 and clinched the series.
  • THIS Max Talbot interview.  Well, the part where he talks about THIS goal.  Basically Talbot gets one of the luckiest goals of the playoffs, but has some fun with it in the post game interview!
  • Beating two of our biggest rivals (Flyers and Capitals ) in consecutive series.  I absolutely dispise both of these teams, and beating them to win the cup makes it that much sweeter.
  • Evgeni Malkin 's nice backhand goal against the Hurricanes .  Not many guys can shoot a backhander like this. VIDEO
  • The Ducks beating the Red Wings 4-3 in triple OT with a goal from Todd Marchant .  Playoff OT NHL games are the best, nothing else like them.  This was an amazing game that an unknown won the game. VIDEO
  • The Scott Walker goal in OT to win the series against the Bruins .  This usually wouldn't mean much, but it was his first career NHL playoff goal and it was after finding out his wife has cancer.  That goal was definitly dedicated to her.
  • THIS save on Alexander Ovechkin by Marc-Andre Fleury .  If flower doesn't make this save, we could be looking at either a Capitals or Red Wings stanley cup champion, and who wants that Tongue out ?
Those are a few of my favorites, what are yours?
