Canucks shave a sliver off of everyone else’s playoff pie

The ridiculous pie chart is a graphic illustration of the chances of making the playoffs in the Western Conference. The only teams represented are the ones whose odds aren’t 100% (clinched spot) or 0% (eliminated). That leaves eight teams in play. And four spots. When all four of those spots are taken, you will see a…

Burrows vs. Toffoli — decision: Burrows

I watched the clip of the Toffoli hit on Burrows about fifty times. The first thing is that the Vancouver announcers are wrong: Toffoli is not going on a line change. He is back-checking to catch Burrows and put the body on him. I believe he’s going out of his way to do this because…

The Great Western Playoff Pie (3-17-15)

Every blog has its identity. Ours is pie. The ridiculous pie chart below has an actual purpose. It is a graphic illustration of the chances of making the playoffs in the Western Conference. The only teams represented are the ones whose odds aren’t 100% (clinched spot) or 0% (eliminated). That leaves eight teams in play.…

Tuesday’s slice of playoff pie

The littlest wedge (with a sliver of the Sharks logo showing) represents the Sharks, Jets and Wild combined. As before, left pie is odds in or out of the post-season, right pie is odds of facing which opponents. I recognize this is a marginally pointless exercise, but so what it’s a blog. For comparison, these…
