Ranking the League

I am taking a stab at a consensus ranking of the two conferences. I will use published information from the following sources:

Nancy Lieberman
Mechelle Voepel
Kevin (pilight) WNBA fan blogger and stat man

I am awarding points as follows...

Improved Roster Comments: 1 point
Playoff Choice: 2 points
Regular Season Winners: 3 points
WNBA Finals: 4 points
WNBA Champs: 5 points
Fail to make playoffs: -2
Negative Roster Comments: -1

Here is how it came out...

Indiana Fever: 29 points
Seattle Storm: 20 points
Detroit Shock: 16 points
LA Sparks: 10 points
Sacramento Monarchs: 7 points
Washington Mystics: 7 points
Phoenix Mercury: 5 points
Connecticut Sun: 4 points
San Antonio Silver Stars: 0 points
Chicago Sky: -5 points
Minnesota Lynx: -6 points
Houston Comets: -12 points
New York Liberty: -12 points

You can tell who got any votes for WNBA champ, but only four of us made a prediction in that category. It looks like all of us were pretty high on the Fever this year, though they weren't my champs. I am surprised at how beat up Houston got, lots of negatives from all of us about their backcourt with no one having them make the post season. We all think Diana and Cappie take the Mercury to their first playoff series this year. San Antonio has been in the dumps forever, but if Sacramento fails to achieve under rookie head coach Boucek, they could slip in as well, though Lieberman was the only to put them in the post season (at LA's expense.)

One more day!
