In any event, great site, I've never been there before, definately a nice suprise to say the least! Keep up the great work man.
well, what i try to do is to use what the team has actually done to this point as a projection of how they will end up. to me its the only sensible way of doing it. While it is just a guesstimate its still worth a look see. I guess if you did the calculation for the Habs like a month ago it would be radically different than what it is now. likewise the penguins would have been radically different as well but in the opposite direction. Like i say, theres no way to accurately predict streaks unless you want to use the real trends stats from the rodent. but those numbers are proprietary, or at least i treat his site with respect to not steal his numbers.
