PROJECTIONS FOR 2015-2016 BASED ON FINAL ROSTER CUTS

OK – we know with some certainty what the opening day rosters will be.  Based on the moves of the last two days, our final predictions of the order of finish are calculated by virtue of our  projected games played Advanced Bracton Scores.

Notes – we now have PIT making the playoffs as the 7th seed.  Due to their respective youth movements, WSH falls to 9th and STL moves down to 8th in the west.  VAN fans will view this with disbelief as they move up to 5th, while CHI has probably been knocked off the playoff bubble.  Keep in mind that all teams with positive retrospective numbers made the playoffs last year except one.  Will this be the year that CHI, STL and ANA all miss the playoffs?  That would be a significant departure to almost all the expert punditry out there.  What a coup for the AB if this outcome materialized.
