ABNuck Posted December 30, 2019 Share Posted December 30, 2019 I was listening to SXM91 and the commentators continually referred to the PAC DIV as the weakest in hockey...I wondered if this was just typical media bias (eye test vs. actual stats) so I did some stats analysis...turns out they were right! Here's what found: When tallying up the divisional records vs each of the other 3 divisions and calculating the winning percentage vs the others divs, the MET is the strongest earning 63% of the available points vs the other 3 divisions. Next is the CEN at 61%, then the ATL at 53% then lastly the lowly PAC at 51%. The inter divisional records include the 2pts for win + 1 pt for OTL (hence the reason all divisions appear to be above 50%) vs total available points. Bottom line is, chances are that the SC Finalists this year will come from the MET and CEN ... maybe WSH vs. STL or COL? Will be interesting to see if the trend continues. PS/ Last PAC team to win the SC...LAK in 2014 and man do they suck now! All SC winners since then have come from either the MET or CEN 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
