Your theory probably holds water, but I would like to see some other statitics, such as the opponents of those teams and their PIM totals, or even more detailed, the score at the time of PPs (of which I am not asking you to do, that's a rather time consuming task). I think your list, while it is a good one, is perhaps unintentional confirmation bias, no offense. It doesn't tell the whole story, but your numbers generally support your theory, and that's fine--I'm think your theory is probably true, that there are a generally even mix of 'tough' teams in both lists is in your favor--but I'm guessing that you saw those numbers and stopped there. But like I said, I think your theory will end up being right. It's a very interesting find.
