|AB 2015||AB 2016|
The first data column is the Advanced Bracton scores generated during the 2014-2015. The second column shows the 2014-2015 regular season ranking for each team. The third numbers are the PRELIMINARY projection for next season, without considering the final depth charts. These will be updated in late September. Teams with positive AB made the playoffs in all cases except Los Angeles last year. All teams that made the playoffs advanced to the second round if their AB was higher than that of their opponents.
EDIT – Compare this list to those found in the following article in which the author uses shot based statistics to predict the overall order of finish in the NHL for 2014-2015.
We found it interesting that the difference between the shot based statistics and our work were in some cases polar opposites. Tell us what you think.
