This blog/article is woefully short of Red Wing players.

Of interest -

 

79. Datsyuk - http://bleacherrepor...-season/page/25

Most nights, my posts are brought to you by Heineken and sarcasm.
Success has a thousand fathers, failure is an orphan.

I didn't go throught the whole list, one by one, who has time for that?  But, the list looks really strange.  People can argue about whether they think Crosby is the best in the world all they want, that's fine, either way, he should be near the top of the list.  Also, people can argue all they want about Datsyuk and where he should rank on the list, you'll get a range of where people think he should be, but who would have him at #79?  I think a logical person woudl start looking at offensive production coming down, him getting older, etc., but that isn't enough to push him that far back.  Look at a lot of the guys ahead of him.

 

Beyond that, the list and the details are just weird.  Some of the players they are using stats from 2 years ago, not last year (e.g. Kesler in at #7).  How is Ovechkin at #2?  If you want to be totally blinded by offsensive stats and push guys like Datsyuk way back (even though his offensive stats were still better than a lot of guys ahead of him), how can you not look at Ovechkin's stats and do the same thing.  I get that he is still a great player, but #2?

 

I'm sure there are tons of other head scratchers in there, but not enough time now to go through it in detail.

I get that, but there is a lot on that list that goes beyond what reasonable people would even debate about.  People will debate any list that is put together, the issue is the glaringly bad placements of some players that I would imagine almost everyone would argue against.

Hey now, Bleacher Report is good for offering a way for joe schmoe to exhibit his or her contrived, uninspired, amateur writing. And that can be hilarious. Most articles read like if a real website let their writer and editor get hammered and only corrected the sdlkfjfjjjjjjjjjjjj from where they passed out on the keyboard.

 

Really though I wouldn't take anything on that site seriously. It's just average joes who can't write worth a lick. They know how to try and kinda sorta make the words sound professional, but the content doesn't sound professional whatsoever. Too many ignorant forum-style opinions when those opinions only survive on forums because the like-minded gather to reassure each other.

Well when he has to make a correction because he forgot someone like Anze Kopitar the season after his team won the Cup, you have to wonder how much actual thought he put it into the list.  

 

 

Especially when you put Jack Johnson at 67??

 

MA Fleury at 21 right behind Quick at 20??

 

This list is all kinds of wrong.

Bleacher report is fun to read while at work, but their lists have always provided nothing but entertainment.

 

If you're looking for substantive rankings, they're very rare on that site.   


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Bleacher report is one of the most popular sports sites in the world...................they don't get hockey though.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

a couple of things: Datsyuk at 79? Ya, ok. Doesn't dangle anymore? Ya, ok.  It is great to see Hossa at #45 and Franzen at #......oh wait.  Another thing, it's so funny to see the faces of Parise and Suter. Parise looks like he just crawled back up in his mothers womb and is all warm and cozy and Suter looks like he is saying, "this better  f****** work out mama's boy!"

 

Oh and Crosby at #1? Hey, the NHL is back, it's time to start the cock sucking again! But the author says he was labeled "The Next One," am I missing something? I do believe Lindros was "The Next One."  So that would make Cindy, "Ok, we were wrong about Eric, this kid is The Next One." Of course I laugh at Kesler in the top 10 as well.
