That doesn't even make sense if you take out the OTLs.
Prior to the Avs game last night they were 8-1-6, which is 22 points out of a posible 30. 22 out of 30 is .733 winning percentage.

The NHL has ALWAYS based winning percentage on total points divided by maximum possible points earned. Even when they still had tied games.

We get it that you don't like counting OTL and SOL points. Get over it. The NHL uses this formula for its winning percentage and that's all that matters.
