Win Threshold

1

Hey guys, So here is a quick/early look at Win Threshold so far this season. According to the Shots Against and Goals For so far this season, here's what we're seeing. (I know its a tiny sample size but its worth seeing how each team is starting). Click on the link for a refresher of how Win Threshold works, and recall that it is the save percentage the team's goalies must maintain in order to end up around .550% (playoffs) Rank. Team - Win Threshold 1. PHILADELPHIA - 0.856 2. DETROIT - 0.870 3. CHICAGO - 0.876 4. WASHINGTON - 0.890 5. TORONTO - 0.893 6. ST LOUIS - 0.893 7. SAN JOSE - 0.894 8. BUFFALO - 0.899 9. MONTREAL - 0.902 10. PHOENIX - 0.904 11. PITTSBURGH - 0.905 12. NY ISLANDERS - 0.905 13. COLORADO - 0.905 14. LOS ANGELES - 0.907 15. CAROLINA - 0.915 16. VANCOUVER - 0.916 17. FLORIDA - 0.917 18. CALGARY - 0.918 19. TAMPA BAY - 0.919 20. OTTAWA - 0.924 21. DALLAS - 0.926 22. MINNESOTA - 0.926 23. NASHVILLE - 0.927 24. COLUMBUS - 0.927 25. WINNIPEG - 0.929 26. ANAHEIM - 0.931 27. NY RANGERS - 0.932 28. EDMONTON - 0.933 29. NEW JERSEY - 0.938 30. BOSTON - 0.943 Observations: The top 16 teams IMO should reach their win threshold. The only wildcards after that are Calgary, Nashville, Anaheim and Dallas, who may be able to reach their win thresholds if saved by goaltending. Phoenix and the NYI may also not reach their win threshold.

Mike Brown Suspended 3 Games: Brown had just got back Thursday after six weeks recovering from a broken index finger. Coach Ron Wilson plugged him right back into the fourth line where his hitting and penalty killing are valued. With the Leafs down 1-0 late in the second period, Brown spotted Jovanovski, went to step into him and though he claimed the Coyote put himself in danger by lowering his head, there was heavy contact. The league’s new discipline regarding lateral hits to the head was invoked. Brown will forfeit $8,669.34 US in salary to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund. "We support the process the League utilizes in cases such as these," Burke said. "And while we place great value on Mike Brown as a teammate, we also support the crackdown on blindside blows to the head. There are no issues (with the league’s ruling) here." Brown will return Jan. 22 against Washington. http://www.torontosun.com/sports/hockey/2011/01/14/16897316.html
