I submit for your collective consideration, seeing we're trying to draw conclusions from
In a typical 82-game season, teams generally average roughly around three man-games lost per team, a figure that teams would likely reach due to season-ending injuries if there were more games played.
What we havenít seen, however, is an epidemic of injuries due to the condensed schedule, as these numbers donít appear that far off the norm.
Youíll note that most of the teams on the low end here are playoff teams, and thatís not a coincidence. Thereís a correlation between man-games lost and points percentage every year thatís pretty significant.
And that makes what Detroit and Ottawa are doing all the more impressive.
Detroit is at 5.64 to Ottawa/Florida at 4.79--- not quite a full man games lost per game above #2.
