Reed Review: Projected Final Standings

Late last night, it’s fair to say that I became infatuated with the current NHL standings. For fun I decided to try out my skills as a predictor. An hour or two later I developed a formula to project each team’s final point total, taking into account games remaining, current points, recent winning trends and much more. Although I can’t share the ‘secret’ formula, I will share the results.
