Vulgar Statistics: Power Rankings Week 1
Alright, making a few distinct changes to the power rankings this year.
- Goals per game
- Goals Allowed per game
- Even Strength Goal Differential per 60 minutes
- Even Strength Shot Differential per 60 minutes
I have also added an extra column to help separate the divisions to make better sense of things with the new playoff format.
