Sunday's Standings in Points Blown

New, comments

In our new Western Sub-Conference, we have ten teams fighting for 5 playoff spots. SJS and CHI have been expelled for being too good, EDM and CBJ for being too bad and COL is out for the moment because they're the first seed in the NW. In other words, we're only going to deal with the 4th through 8th seeds, but we're calling them 1-5. Ten teams, five make it, five don't.

Two points "awarded" for every loss, one point for every OTL/SOL. Lowest point total is best. Second number (+/-) is number of points (in my system) ahead or behind Los Angeles.

  1. Nashville 35 / +4
  2. Phoenix 37 / +2
  3. Vancouver 38 / +1
  4. Los Angeles 39 --
  5. Calgary 40 / -1
  6. Detroit 40 / -1
  7. Minnesota 45 / -6
  8. Dallas 45 / -6
  9. St. Louis 45 / -6
  10. Anaheim 47 / -8

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.
