No kidding this is a joke!! Carolina is #3 Based more on goals scored than on wins
Let's see if in a seven game series team A wins 2-1, 1-0, 2-1, 3-2 and team B wins 5-1, 6-0, 5-1 Team A scored 10 goals and Team B scored 20. According to TSN team B was twice as good as team A. Which team advanced?
any ranking system relying heavily on goal differential is going to be extremely skewed early.. think predator fans have beefs with this one? look at vancouver ranked 17th, all because they lost to Minnesota 6-0..
in the long run, this thing should prove to be much better and more accurately reflect the real league.. but for now, it will remain nothing but an oddity
