I'm not saying its wrong to omit the Rangers bad start, but the logic can apply to other scenarios as well. And if its not applied to the other scenarios, then it sort of becomes an apples-to-oranges comparison. Anaheim's blueline was decimated for a good part of the beginning of the season. Calgary was missing Giordano for quite a while. Montreal was missing Emelin. I'm sure there are other examples.
There would definitely be merit in that.
I look forward to your results, Crease.
