Pierre LeBrun, one of four people at ESPN that can even spell “hockey” has the Wild down five spots this week to 14. This keeps the Wild in the playoffs, but just barely. Not quite sure how he has the Sharks at 6, up 11 spots, when they have nothing all season, but hey, to each their own.
Here is what LeBrun said about the Wild:
One of the league’s most unpredictable clubs. Flat in Florida, impressive in Tampa, and riding the NHL’s No. 1 power play.
Huh, and unpredictable club you say? I think the folks at Hockey Wilderness have been saying that since before the season started. Let’s move on, shall we? The bitterness about ESPN is starting to rile me up.
