      Insults/Name-calling will not be tolerated   11/19/2016

      It's great to see the boys earning their way into the playoffs this season (barring a Colorado-would-be-proud collapse).  What a night-and-day difference from way back in November.   With the playoffs, we typically see more traffic/visitors on the site, usually from the opposing team's fanbase (especially from the Oilers).  This is just a reminder that stating your opinion is fine (it's exactly what these forums are for), and friendly, good-natured ribbing is OK, however, name-calling and insults will still be a major no-no and cause for the Banhammer to warm up.  This applies to all new guests and visitors as well: you're more than welcome to join the party, but civility is house rule around here.   All insults/name-calling will be met with a zero-tolerance approach, regardless if you are a new person to the forums, or have been around since these forums began.   First-offenses will be met with a moderator-needs-to-approve-your-post for 3 days Second offenses will be met with a week-long suspension Third offenses will result in a perma-ban   If you have any questions regarding this policy, or would like to voice your concern about it, you are absolutely free to contact me directly.   We all love this team, and this game.  Let's all hop on the Bandwagon, enjoy a few beverages, and ride this wave of excitement as far as we can.   --  Kulstad

OK Scott Cullen has to be on drugs or sniffing glue or something. Just checked out his power rankings and he listed LA (you know the cup champs) ranked at 10! His reasoning is that Kopitar is out due to injury. Fine, but if my memory is correct, and it is, Kopitar has been in LA for 6 years and they did not win the cup (or have much success for that matter) until last season with major trades. So, Cullen is telling us that Kopitar is so good he can take a team from 10 to 1st?

I have seriously lost faith in TSN, they need to get rid of that guy.

Side note, yes I never had much respect for the guy, because he has never given the flames or their players a fair assessment, but this logic really takes the cake!

I feel like we have this thread every year...

Scott Cullen is not an "expert" or even a sports analyst. He is a statistician that uses formulas and numbers to try and take the guessing game out of it. Everything he does from a ranking persepctive is all based on numbers and formuals and thus why it comes out looking ridciulous. LA would make sense becuase they struggle to score as it is, take our Kopitar and his offence and plus it into a formula and you multiply the effect, again it's all math so if you believe in math great..
