But yes, it's a bit of a chicken & egg argument. Hard to convince advocates of either point of view to change their minds.
The hockey world would refer to a 10-10-3 team as a .500 team and disregard the third category of OT/SO losses. They base it on wins and losses only (10-10 portion). Analysts would also say the same and refer Montreal playing .500 hockey.
