It's funny how this is all that was discussed on the main board last year, and it was established that the Kings weren't that good, because their GD wasn't as solid as the other teams ahead of them. GD was the be-all and end-all for the strength of a team.
Now, you go there, and it's a meaningless stat. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.
Though the reality is probably somewhere in the middle. It does show that we often either win by a few goals or lose the close ones...which is a damning sign (though, of course, that's been a LOT better lately).
