Points-blown refers to the number of points a team could have earned, but did not. They are points-squandered. You get two PBs for a loss, and one PB for an OT/SOL. The lower your total, the better. Like golf. Or cholesterol. The columns are fully sortable.

KEY:

  • Q is my standings, default sorted by points-blown (long-winded explanation of points-blown here). 
  • NHL is the official standings, via NHL.COM (ESPN has the tie-breakers wrong). 
  • R/OT/SO is the team's win-loss record broken down into regulation/over-time/shoot-out.
  • W% is what's commonly referred to as win-percentage, but because of the stupid Bettman point (SBP) it's actually points-earned as a percentage of maximum possible points. 
  • PRJ is projected point total for 82 games. 
  • 10-11 is last season's final point total. 
  • %ch is the difference between last year's final point total and this year's projected point total.
  • MAX is maximum points possible for that team. 
  • PB is points-blown. 
  • +/- is the distance in points-blown above or below the 8th seed. 
  • W! is regulation wins plus OT wins (the first tie-breaker). 
  • GD is goal-differential.
