The Hockey News’s power rankings: ‘Say we’re all the same, just inconsistent’

The Hockey News’s Jason Chen posted a set of power rankings today, and I think he’s a little harsh on Alex Nedeljkovic (but that’s just me):

20. Detroit Red Wings (16-15-3, -18. CF%: 30th, xGF%: 22nd. PR: 21)

When it comes to goaltending, Alex Nedeljkovic is either really good or really bad, and it’s tough to say which one will show up most nights. The Wings are a bubble playoff team and that’s more than what most expected. Don’t expect this to change much all season.

Continued; I’ve got no complaints with Nedeljkovic. Greiss has been more inconsistent in my eyes, and the truth of the matter is that the Red Wings’ defense and penalty-killing are the real culprits in my opinion.

  1. Ned will be fine, new coach, more Raymonds/Seiders. Ned is still a Rookie. Greise is still an older cheap backup.

    Still in Rebuild mode.

    Hockey News used to be pretty accurate.
