Vulgar Statistics: Power Rankings Week 8
Tired of emotional, judgmental, personally biased power rankings from ESPN “writers” that don’t have my pedigree? Fret no longer, here are my stats-based power rankings. How do they work?
I rank each team 1-15 in the conference in 5 categories:
- Points Percentage
- Goals for per Game
- Goals allowed per Game
- Power Play Percentage
- Penalty Kill Percentage
And then I sum those rankings. Lowest score wins. And as a team’s record becomes a truer measure of that team’s overall skill as the season wears on, that category will grow in weight.
