Embedding spreadsheets is a bitch
A few things that jump out from this and ESPN's traditional standings:
- Boston has a % of PTS of 0.788, so rest your fears, Sharks fans - we're still on top.
- Detroit has been a less-than-pedestrian 4-4-2 in their last 10 games. San Jose has a 4 point lead with 3 games in hand.
- Believe it or not, but the 2nd best team in the Pacific is the Dallas Stars. Going 7-1-2 in your last 10 games will do that. Still 22 points behind San Jose though. So they can still go fuck themselves for all I care.
- The % of Points ranking really drives home that log jam at the bottom of the standings. Seeds 7-9 are in a dead heat. The bottom 7 teams in the conference are each 7 points or fewer out of the 8th seed. Contrast that to the Eastern Conference, where just 2 teams are in that range (Carolina & Pittsburgh).
