    I’m a Sens fan, and definitely don’t think they should be bumped for all the injuries, but how can you put Philadelphia at 9th with the way they’ve been playing?

    I don’t like them…as a fan, but they are a strong tough team that has handed it to my Sens twice!

    Here are the teams Philadelphia has beaten since Dec 1st.

    Calgary
    Minnesota
    Columbus
    St. Louis
    Ottawa
    Pittsburgh
    Florida
    Atlanta
    Carolina
    Boston
    NY Rangers
    Washtington
    Chicago (last night, not included in standings)

    Here is who they lost to:
    Nashville
    Edmonton
    Vancouver
    Buffalo (OT)
    Washington (OT)
    New Jersey

    Of the “good” teams on both lists, they are .500. Beat Calgary, Ottawa, Carolina and Rangers, lost to Nashville, Edmonton, Vancouver and Buffalo. But the Rangers aren’t really ranked that highly either. Good teams should not move up the least by beating bad teams like Washington, St. Louis, Columbus, and Boston. They need to beat good teams to do that. Nor should they necessary move down the list for losing to better teams. This is the problem with most other power rankings. They just look at wins and losses, not who they beat and who they lost too. Schedules are not equal. Some teams play a much tougher schedule and my power rankings take this into account.
