So I like to check the projected standings from The Athletic's resident NHL nerd. I can't say I've every mistaken him for someone with a sense of humour (at least not about stats. He gets rather protective at times.) Good one today though.
I'll leave it for y'all to figure out... but it's a good piece of distraction going on too. His work... does not normally look like this.
And for those who don't subscribe (figure this is fine to share since I can access these pics without being logged in):

@smallbear Personally I would would have just gone ahead and labeled the Hurricanes "The Whale"

@smallbear Font makes me twitch.
I still like the stat that put the Kraken ahead of the Sabres, what a dumpster fire. Seeing Torts throw yet another tantrum also warms my heart in this bizarre feeling season.

Missed that one... help me?
Also I can't help but feel disappointed in the Flyers. I mean, no streak lasts forever, but I can hope... There's teams you have a rivalry with, and there's teams you just hate. The Sabres are #2 for me.

@smallbear I guess it was a ranking more than a stat:
I like the Flyers for their youth and up and coming goalie who came from a PNW WHL team (not to mention Gritty), but I've always disliked Bobby Clarke, and the "legion of doom" mentality, which I suppose had a fun ending.

Hard to believe the Habs haven't won the Cup since 1993, storied franchise chasing their own tail. I'll hop on the Kraken bandwagon, see how that goes=> if it's anything like Las Vegas' start in the league could be very entertaining.

@smallbear Cool, the Sabres finally won a game. Still not watching the rest of their season. I'm all in to the Bills at this point and can't let that sort of negativity bring me down.
@midengine I'd bet on Vegas being the exception... Not saying the Kraken will suck like expansion teams used to, but I wouldn't put money on them being an immediate cup contender like Vegas
