How is Getzlaf projected to get more points than Phil Kessel who currently has 2 more points than Getzlaf does?
Anahiem has 17 games remaining and Toronto has 15 games remaining. Kessel has also played in 6 mores games than Getzlaf. While Kessel has 2 more points currently, my simple projections have him at 89pts and Getzlaf at 91pts. I kept the projection simple and didn't assume Getzlaf would miss x% of the remaining games since he's currently missed x% of the first 65 games.
Was never a big fan of "projections" and more often than not, projections end up being inaccurate.
Don't get me wrong....I totally agree, but the smaller the projection period, the closer you can get to something that makes sense. We're looking at about 15 games to go for everyone (give or take), with more than 80% of the season already in the books. So, I don't mind doing a bit of a projection.
While I don't see any possibility of Crosby not winning, unless he gets injured, someone could get hot and push 95+ points contrary to current projection.
Generally not a fan of projecting though....which is why I haven't spent much time looking at it until now (standings included).
