Prorated standings for the season

Through games as of January 14th, 2015

The Nashville Predators is still the top team in the NHL, the Central Division is still the best division, and the Western Conference is still the superior conference. So, no real news, then? Think again! The terrific results of the middle-of-the-pack teams in the East lately have put the middle-of-the-pack teams in the West in the back-seat, or maybe even in the trunk! Just look at the target numbers in last week's list for playoff security! That's some dramatic change!

 

What tangible effect does this have on the standings, when the power distribution between the conferences remains more or less intact? Well, suddenly it's much harder to be a playoff team in the Eastern Conference, a welcomed change to what has been the norm for years. For Western teams, that have been dreaming of what would have happened if they played in the inferior Eastern Conference. But also for the teams in the East, that suddenly have some collective bragging rights.

 

Right now it looks as though 97 points at season's end won't be enough to reach the post-season in the East, while a Western Conference team with 93 points would qualify. Quite different from the situation a mere seven days ago. I'd wish for the 16 best teams to qualify for the playoffs, so I hope that things will even out in the end. Oh, and the Metropolitan Division has overtaken the Pacific Division and are actually closer to the Atlantic Division than the Pacific at the moment.

I'm doing a couple of concerts next weekend, so I'm not sure if I manage to get anything done this week, either, but I'll give it a shot...

It doesn't mean that I'm giving up, but I'd be surprised if I managed to catch up ahead of the playoffs. No comment from people has made me neglect it further.

Thanks, pal. I'm doing fine, but my schedule is terrible. Well, sort of... I'm extremely busy, and I just haven't had the time to keep up with this.
