Canucks Franchise Ranked 112/122

Well they are ranking from last season, so the title is somewhat misleading. Pretty obvious that Nucks are ranked so low because of a bad season and the $300+ ticket prices for a bottom 6 team wasnt bang for the buck.

Not entirely they aren't, so no, it isn't. If you re-read the article you'll notice Bang for Buck: Wins during the last 3 years", and "Title Track: Championships won or expected in the lifetime of current fans"

A few of the other categories can be interpreted as being an ongoing type of valuation in a sense that "Ownership: Honesty; loyalty to core players and the community", "Fan Relations: Courtesy by players, coaches and front offices toward fans, and how well a team uses technology to reach them", and "Stadium Experience: Quality of venue; fan-friendliness of environment; frequency of game-day promotions" are constantly evolving, and are dependent upon previous years to get to where they sit currently.

I would have weighted the overall importance of some of the categories differently; I don't think many Memphis Grizzlies fans would agree that they have a top 4 franchise in America any more than Columbus Blue Jackets fans would agree theirs is the 21st, but the study involves more than last years information.

The list is quite subjective though, and quite a bit silly.

4th-worst NHL team in title track:

Explains the need for some franchise players a bit more clearly.

6th-worst NHL players:

I guess that comes with a 6th-worst finish.

6th-worst NHL ownership:

Not sure how they quantify that, but d'oh.

4th-worst NHL franchise, overall:

Whoops. Dropped from 13th best a few years ago.

That is a ridiculous list. I'd expect better from ESPN.

Wait, you expect something from the same idiots that provide quality sports articles such as:

http://espn.go.com/espn/feature/story/_/id/11169006/nfl-showers-hostile-environment-michael-sam-espn-magazine

Or how about this quality ESPN list: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjkiebus/things-that-make-you-say-really-espn#4a9yb50

Please do yourselves a favour and check it out, My favourite is #14, I bet nobody forgets #20, and #24, well, speaks for itself.
