"Agreed, but still. Every team in the east has at least 7 wins with avg 18 played and all but 3 in the west have won 8 games and the teams that have won only 5-7 are GOOD teams: No Arizona, Buffalo, etc. Things may change but this is unusual!"


Yes.... When you extrapolate to 82 games, all the gaps widen.

Take the Rangers for example: 19 games played, 9 "wins" , but 4 of those are OT wins.

This is how the 3rd point brings all teams closer together in the standings. The problem is if you fall behind in the standings and you're trying to catch up... that you can go on a win streak but the team(s) ahead of you have a good chance getting a point when they lose... and get 2 points when they tie.

Perhaps my involvement in bringing the 3-point game to BASH makes me biased, but it stills seems stupid as fuck that some NHL games are worth two points and others are worth three.

Looks like parity...

But that's what happens when you get a point for losing a tie, and 2 points for winning a tie after regulation...

If you look at a site that shows this stat: RPt%

RPt% = what your winning percentage would be if you go zero points for an OTL and 1 point for a game ending in a tie after OT (the way things were prior to 2001 and the shootout...)

Looking at that, as expected, 1/2 the teams are above, and 1/2 the teams are below, or at, .500

The new way of tallying points makes weak teams seem, not-so-weak.

Unbelievable parity in the NHL this year. Only 2 teams below .500 in the entire Eastern Conf. and they are just 1 game below .500!!! In the west, basically the same but with 2 teams you would never expect more than a game below .500 Who are they???

The "new" building is ridiculously LARGE; cavernous.

Great place if you're rich and in a club seat or a lower bowl, or some fucking private booth or some sponsored section.

But if you're in the balcony, you're note even close to the ice - players look like ants.

I still haven’t seen a game at the new gah-din.
Every time I go back east I tell myself I’m gonna go...haven’t come close to following through...

I remember freaking the fuck out watching Gilles Gilbert get an assist.
For some reason, I had randomly picked him as my favorite player.

By: Jmom IP: 107.77.92.18 Date: - 11/15/2018 12:58:53 AM
Right.


Ok, so credited for a goal... last player to touch the puck...

(you don't need to put it in quotes..."credited"...)

But goalie goal where the goalie actually shoots it into the net is definitely a diferent animal.

Re: "4-6... That's what you would think. But not even close." How is he not even close when he's actually CORRECT! Only 10 goalies have been credited with a goal (2 goalies twice) and only 5 or 6 actually shot the puck into the net. The rest were "credited" with a goal because they were the last player to touch the puck.

Glad I made it to the Garden when I did. And to Sullys Tap and The Penalty Box.

4-6... That's what you would think.

But not even close.

You can still nose-bleed seat for $85 PLUS a $30 "Service Fee"

i'm afraid this might be your last chance to go to a dive bar outside of the "Garden".


All we'll have is brass and ferns.

Before FacefuckingBook...

This was a fun place to interact with real friends...

Back in the day, we'd post trivia questions...

But try this one without looking it up:

______# of goalies in the NHL have scored goals..


a. 1-3

The AG must be someone who has been sworn in by the convent of Congress, but I’ll appoint my good friend, that I don’t know.
