We have a great goal differential, and Bill James would certainly have us with a better pythageron expectation. However, we aren't getting enough games to OT, as those close 1 goal games have usually ended up being regulation losses. We've only had 4 OT games, which I am not positive, but is probably lowest in the league, or close to it. The league average is about 1 in 4 games, while the CanuckThs are averaging an OT game every 12. The point system favours those teams that hang in close games and push them to OT. We should know, we had that kind of team in 07 and 08 where it seemed like every game we played went to OT and it seemed to help prop us up a little higher than where we should have been in the standings.
