I don't think you really can. I think teams play(ed) differently depending on the points available. I think teams played to deliberately tie years ago to get a single point or HAD to play to win towards the end of the season because they needed more than a point. The same team now can deliberately play to tie because their team is better in a skills competition.

I don't even know how you can singularly evaluate wins, OTW, and SOW comparing to pre-lockout.
