The San Jose Sharks only have 1 problem right now. It's getting pretty hard to quantify just how good this team is. Broadcasters have to make up records just to try and put 22-3-1 in perspective. Best 26 game start ever! Hooray!?
Below is a chart of every NHL team and their rank in the following 4 categories: Goals For, Goals Against, Power Play %, and Penalty Kill %. I then summed up those ranks and sorted the teams from lowest to highest. A perfect score would be 4; A perfectly abysmal score would be 120. No surprises here - the San Jose Sharks are at the top.
San Jose is (Ed: almost) the only team in the top 10 in all 4 categories. If we factored in Home Record and Road Record the blowout would have been even greater, as the Sharks are 1st and T-2nd in those categories respectively.
