playoff rankings

James Mirtle just posted an entry regarding the overall record of all NHL teams and their post-season success. However, since he based it on teams, it didn’t show reality very well…

Here’s the chart based on franchises.

Unfortunately, it shows the sad truth that my Nashville Predators are the one and only franchise in the history of the NHL not to have a playoff series win associated with it in anyway. :-( But I think the Coyotes/Jets franchise still has more actual futility and shame attached to it.

Note: these are based on the numbers James pulled together from whowins.com…i have no idea if they are right. However, at best they are based on last year’s numbers, not the playoffs so far this year.
