Very cool website.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

My favourite, is statistically... our game tonight against the ducks affects our chances of wining the cup by .2% or a .4% swing. Statistics are cool, but if you don't understand... they aren't saying anything more than probability based on strength and mathematical history.

Very cool. That graph really shows how teams have gone throughout the season.
Hint: Mouse over your team's name in the left-hand column to see where they are on the graph.

I've always had this website favourited for near the end of the season. :thumbup: love watching how drastically it can change with one win by a team fighting for the 8th spot.

We have a better chance to win the Cup than Pittsburgh. Works for me. :D

I like that the most likely way for us to make the central is if St Louis does .500 the rest of the way and we do .750 hockey... Yeah that isn't happening.

Only 50 million outcomes where the Wings win the division out of 1 billion possible permutations. 5% chance is statically impossible.

Tonight is an epic game for us for statistical revenge.

San Jose wins tonight (in regulation) they have a 74.7% chance at making the playoffs.

An overtime loss is 65.1

Wings in in 60 minutes, they have a 55.5% chance of making the playoffs. Seeing how much they wreck us in the playoffs... I want them to miss the dance. Let's go Wings. WIN TONIGHT!!!

I know... I have a feeling I will be looking at this a ton for the rest of my life.

Those odds of playing Dallas are improving... This is the best news in the world ... let's go sixth place!!!

I'm all for playing Dallas, but rooting for sixth seed could backfire if San Jose wins the Pacific!

My roommate's a Ducks fan, so when they were on their run last month, he kept saying how they were going to make the playoffs. Whenever he got too excited, I'd just bring this site up, and tell him their current chance at making the playoffs, which maxed out at around 6% if I remember correctly.

Who thought that the Pacific would so uncompetitive with the other divisions? I didn't see that one coming. Almost everyone picked either SJ or LA to be first in the conference. Right now Dallas (leading the Pacific) is 17 points back of St. Louis (leading the Central) and 11 points back of Vancouver (leading the Northwest).

That's embarrassing. It's like the Southeast Division of the Western Conference.

Edit: And that's even after Vancouver is 3-5-2 in their last 10, while Dallas is 7-2-1.

Last year, if Dallas didn't choke on the final day, all 5 teams would have made the playoffs from that division (first time in league history that would have happened).

This year, it's likely that 3 teams from that division make the playoffs. Yeah, there's no powerhouse team, but it's hardly a weak division. A weak division is where one team makes the playoffs and the other teams flat out suck.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Last year there was also a team that was actually good in that division.

Alright, perhaps a better description is that it's the most uniformly mediocre division. I'd still be embarrased to be in that 3 slot and playing a 6th place team with more points. Obviously, I'm sure the team will take the home ice happily, but I doubt there can be a whole lot of pride in that.
