ESPN Knows Not Of This 'Hockey' You Speak OfLook, I'm the first to admit that this here site isn't exactly Puck Daddy. But when we start an NHL feature, we tend to finish it, unlike a certain Worldwide Leader, apparently. I wouldn't even mention this except that ESPN, in abandoning its NHL rankings back on Oct. 23, has generated some quite amusing remarks in its own comments section. Their readers have found an empty room where the rankings used to be; and the framed photo of Barry Melrose that was on the wall? Replaced by this. It's an ESPN reader mutiny! Selected comments from ESPN Conversation about their NHL rankings, which have not been updated in nearly three weeks (from here on out call them the NHL Ranklings): shaba22 (11/9/2008 at 10:12 PM) go sabres! number one! hahaha. bevelmatt (11/9/2008 at 6:54 PM) hockey - hock·ey (hok-ee): noun, Date: 1883 - a game played on an ice rink by two teams of six players on skates whose object is to drive a puck into the opponents' goal with a hockey stick... ... in case ESPN has forgotten. puck_you17 (11/9/2008 at 6:24 PM) They have important things to cover... the World Series of Poker. Maybe after that is over.... oh wait there might be some Bass Fishing then.... Scarface_snd (11/9/2008 at 5:59 PM) This is freaking ridiculous . . . I can forgive them for not being able to pronounce hockey players' names on SportsCenter now that it's live, but to not update the power rankings for almost 3 weeks is simply inexcusable . . . it would be nice if ESPN gave two #### about SPORTS and not MONEY bdfriedrich (11/9/2008 at 11:08 AM) When do the monthly power rankings come out for November? GSHUrlacher54 (11/8/2008 at 9:32 PM) Could be worse... Sportsline hasn't even changed the Blackhawks page for the Coach and Roster areas. It still says Denis Savard is our coach... pathetic. At least yahoo! keeps up to date daily. (11/8/2008 at 7:58 AM) Maybe they feel pretty good about their week two picks and are just gonna let them ride all season. Better yet they probably just forgot that it was hockey season. Favorite Savior (11/7/2008 at 12:27 PM) Hell, I say we start our own hockey news and ranking site. I bet we could even get away with running it on this message board; 1500 characters is plenty of space for a nice run down of a game. It's not like ESPN checks this. takedown520 (11/5/2008 at 9:34 AM) Ryan Miller is God Another Week Of Play Gives Rankings New Look [ESPN]
