Saturday's Kings-Centric Standings in Points-Blown


The Good: Kings win, Wings lose, Yotes lose, Blues half-lose.

The Bad: Canucks win, Wild win, Ducks win.

The Bad but so what: Sharks win.

The Good but so what: Hawks lose. 

The Utterly Irrelevant: Jackets lose.

Two points "awarded" for every loss, one point for every OTL/SOL. Lowest point total is best. Number in parentheses is the official standings (via ESPN). Last number (+/-) is number of points (in my system) ahead or behind Los Angeles. Because it's a Kings-centric universe. 

Kings are now in a 3-way tie for 5th, three points from 4th, three points from 9th. For the first time since I've been doing this, the points-blown standings and the official (ESPN) standings have the West in the same order. 

  1. San Jose Sharks 28 (1) +13
  2. Chicago Blackhawks 30 (2) +11
  3. Colorado Avalanche 36 (3) +5
  4. Vancouver Canucks 38 (4) +3
  5. Phoenix Coyotes 41 (5) 0
  6. Nashville Predators 41 (6) 0
  7. Los Angeles Kings 41 (7) --
  8. Detroit Red Wings 44 (8) -3
  9. Calgary Flames 44 (9) -3
  10. Dallas Stars 47 (10) -6
  11. Anaheim Ducks 49 (11) -8
  12. Minnesota Wild 50 (12) -9
  13. St. Louis Blues 50 (13) -9
  14. Columbus Blue Jackets 59 (14) -18
  15. Edmonton Oilers 62 (15) -21

Tie breaker is games-played, except that the winner of the tie breaker is the team who has played more games. If this seems counter-intuitive, consider this: A team with a 10-2 record is better than a team with a 2-2 record, who is, in turn better than a team that's 0-2.
