Here are the first power rankings of the season. For those unfamiliar with my power rankings, they are algorithm generated based on each teams records and their strength of schedule. If they have a great record but have played an easy schedule they might not be ranked as highly as you might think they should. Remember, it is still early in the season so these rankings are still quite dynamic and can change quickly if a team puts together a couple wins or losses in a row.
Finally, I hope to get some of my other stats up soon including adjusted hits/giveaways/takeaways stats, player rankings, and my game predictions on PredictHockey.com.
Update (Oct. 31): Fixed a minor problem with accounting for OT and shootout games.
|Rank||Last Week||Team||AdjWinP||SchedStr||Power Rank|
AdjWinP is a teams winning percentage when shootouts are considered ties and there are no points awarded for overtime losses
SchedStr is an indication of a teams relative difficulty of schedule
Power Rank is the teams expected winning percentage if team played all .500 teams
