Listen, can you two move that over a bit? I can't see the game.

A little 'shopping and a good caption for this one I think.

I JUST DRANK A WHOLE MONSTER ENERGY DRINK SO NO CHANCE I MISS ANY 3 OT THRILLERS TONIGHT

Let's see if I can get this in before Fark gets farked again (I've seen 5 "Five Oh Oh" errors just trying to load this thread)...

It's the final report of the Alternative NHL Standings, where we ask the stupid question "what if the NHL actually used an intelligent method to set the standings?" It's a stupid question because we know that won't happen as long as Bergman is in charge.

The systems presented for the uninitiated:

International/Olympic system: self-explanatory. The 3 point rule they use in the Olympics and all international competition.

The Revised 3-point system: My suggestion, where regulation and OT wins are worth 3 points, OT losses are worth nothing, shootout points are split 2 for the win and 1 for the loss.

Old NHL: Where ties still exist and the shootout is shot dead.

The next 2 are from Grantland and Down Goes Brown's summer mailbag on how fans would fix the NHL, where my system appeared as well.

Soccer style system: 3 points for a win, 1 for a tie.

Four-point system: 4 pts for a regulation win, 3 for an OT win (1 for an OT loss) and 2 pts for a tie

Finally, a straight up win-loss setup like every other sport does.

So what did we learn this year? Well, not a whole lot if we're honest. All 16 playoff teams are the same in every system except the Old NHL and Soccer systems. If both of those setups, the 2nd wild card in each conference changes. There's some seeding changes, but nothing significant.  The reality is that the realigned divisions took away some of the drama of the playoff races.

Some facts:

75% of regular season games ended in regulation. Of the games that went to OT, 58% went to a shootout. I don't have info on how that relates to past seasons.

Team with fewest shootouts: Carolina at 6 (2-4).

Chicago's combined regular and postseason record in games decided in OT periods: 1-8 (and the 1 came just last week)

Shenannigans aside, I think Stars need to rebound and win tonight or dun dun dun.....they came back from a big deficit....time now to score first and dictate.  Let Jamie and Tyler do some dancin'...

OK, back from the store.  Entire 6-pack of Guinness was flat.  Have cans (I know, I know), and a 1-ltr mug chilling in the freezer.

Bring it on!  I want to see every game go to at least 2 OTs!

/no, I don't have to be awake tomorrow.

So, I woke up in a different city an hour's plane flight away, how drunk did you get last night?

I don't know how long my phone battery will last, so here's hoping for another good, tough, tense Habs-Bolts game that the Habs win in even more frustrating fashion. I like to see the Stars keep the Ducks nervous, and of course the B's can go f

Were the Bolts trying to do a whiteout?  If so, I call FAIL.

On Sun, according to my schedule.

Wanting the Bolts to take a game tonight... but not sure I can root for anything other than good hockey regarding Bruins/Wings (I like both of them).

I'll have to give the edge to the Wings though, since I have a sister in Michigan. If they don't make it, the B's will be my East team.

Baseball fail.

They did the same thing with the Panthers/Columbus game I wanted to watch to see who the Bs would be facing.

evening all....only get to see the first period as I have to be a target for another group at 9:30 - glad to see the Rangers finally remember how to put the puck in the net last night.  Pulling for Bruins and as much as I hate Montreal, they're my bracket pick

now...Hockey!!!!
