Three team league, not competitive. The standings were determined by Feb 16,1915 with app three weeks of games to play.

Tickets had to be sold. Offence fills seats. Last 4 games of their season, after clinching, Vancouver averaged 12 GF/G previously just over 5GF /G. They gave up 5GA/G.
They also scored 26 goals in the 3 game Cup match against Ottawa. Ottawa didn't need to give up goals to sell tickets did they?

The wiki link is just straight from The Trail of the Stanley Cup. It says that games were cancelled in 3 straight years, but the final game in 1914 wasn't cancelled.
