ESPN Bucks the Trend, Drops the Wild

Scott Burnside of ESPN says "To hell with your wins," and drops the Wild three (!) spots to 24th in the league. A brutal kick in the shorts after winning, right? Well, at least Burnside backs it up:

A three-game winning streak came to a crashing halt against Detroit on Sunday in a 4-1 loss. Their offense remains anemic and stutter-stepping their way through the season is a sure recipe for another season without a playoff berth.

"Stutter-stepping their way through the season." I love it. Good on ya for laying the smack down Mr. Burnside. I may not have dropped them in my own rankings, but you brought the heat. For that, you get to remove the label of worst hockey network in the world for a week. Congrats, sir.
