[OFFICIAL] Playoff Indicator Chart 2011

You need to double check your numbers. This is the formula I use: Team's games remaining - (points differential/2) + 0.5 (to ensure that the Canucks end up with more points, avoids tiebreakers).

For example, Dallas's number is at 42, but it should be 44 (44-0.5+0.5). Say the Canucks won 42 games, the Stars could win all 44 and pass the Canucks.

Actually considering that they have 4 Shootout wins, that automatically means that Dallas needs to have 4 wins higher than Vancouver's to beat them out. The reason behind that is because of the new shootout rules. It essentially works the same as a OT/SO Loss.

Dallas has 48 Points with 44 Games remaining (thats 88 Points). Assume Dallas finishes the season 66-12-4 and Vancouver finishes the season 65-11-6. Because Dallas has 4 Shootout wins, it'd be saying that dallas has a record of 62-12-8 while Vancouver has a record of 64-11-7. you see the difference?

So for every Shootout win TEAM B has, I take off 0.5 points, but for every shootout win vancouver has, I add 0.5 Points. As well I consider 0.0 still active in the race. As soon as the magic number hits -0.5, then they become eliminated. It works the same way.

I have revised the formula. Thanks to ghettoastronaut!

N = ((B+RPTS) - A / 2) + 0.5

I think its easy to look at it this way, in 19 more wins, the canucks make the playoffs, in 25 more wins they will win the division and in 30 more wins maybe even the conference.

39 games remaining.

and realistically, for Vancouver to end up in 1st overall in the west, they just need a 28-13-3 Record to finish, which is 0.670. 0.750 to clinch 1st.

No way is this too early. It's never too early. Needs a pin though.
