Sure, the ranking of 24th is probably close to correct. Sure, the rankings have been spot on for most of the year. Still, the reasoning never matches what is happening.
For example, this week, Mr. Goldstein drops the Wild four spots and then writes this:
Martin Havlat has a dozen points in his past dozen games, and has put up more offense than anyone not named Crosby since mid-November.
It makes no sense to pour on praise and then slam them in the rankings, does it?
