Yeah, this is a little bit like saying football is better than baseball or whatever. People are gonna play them and like them regardless, nothing you say is going to change it.

BASEBALL IS BETTER THAN FOOTBALL GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

OK, this is assuming ties after OT and a win in OT is like a standard win:

(And yes, I am building that in Real Time.)

EAST IS DONE - no major changes.
WEST IS DONE - more changes here.

Man this is awesome, nice work!

Scary part?  The major thing that changes in the east?  Jersey one point away from playoffs.

I sure do dislike those Devils.

Does anybody know of an analysis anywhere on what the standings would be currently without the shootout "Bettman Point"? I always like to see that.

No matter what you might think of the other complaints, violating a court order is a pretty big deal.

^ True that. Two years old but still a classic. ;)

Also, that baseball 'who should you root for' flowchart? We need a hockey one stat. Just replace 'Yankees' with 'Canucks' (I know everyone else would put Leafs in that spot though).

Good god I love that flow chart.

My other problem is this league's inconsistency when it comes to suspensions.

Honestly I think the NHL has been pretty consistent when it comes to suspensions lately. If people know your name you don't get a suspension. ;-)

I'm still mulling the issue of what to do with Chara on that hit.

Obviously on any other part of the boards this is a 2 minute interference penalty... that probably doesn't even get called. Whether Chara intended anything or not though, Pacioretti is in the hospital.

My biggest gripe for the NHL since the rule changes several years ago to make the game faster is that penalties such as interference are not called nearly often enough. If you combine a faster game with the same types of hits that used to go uncalled, you create dangerous situations. I know fans don't want the game getting "wimpier" and don't want hitting taken out of the game... but fact of the matter is bad things happen if you combine bigger faster guys with the same forgiving officiating when it comes to late hits... game just becomes a heckuva lot more dangerous and you get more serious situations like this.

Then again if every penalty actually got called Briere would probably have about 70 hooking penalties by now.

I was at the Flyers-Rangers game at Madison Square Garden on Sunday watching my boys get blasted 7-0. Finally ended the losing streak but a visit from the Oilers will do that for ya.

Awful about Pacioretti.

The thing I enjoyed about John's review was that it answered the questions I had about the game after playing the demo. Based on the demo and the review I was able to make an informed decision to simply wait for a price drop or a swap (I love swap.com). But with the demo, which Bioware/EA certainly wasn't required to provide, and the review I know that this is a game I don't need to rush out and get and let my expectations be tempered accordingly.

People tend to take the path of least resistance.

Trying to carefully consider all of the factors in play on any issue is very, very hard. It's much easier to either not vote or simply do whatever your political party, favorite pundit, or church leader tell you to do.

I believe it was Socrates who said that the man who thinks he knows a thing proves himself a fool.

Then again Socrates also thought the written word was a bad thing.

See? It's hard.
