Thanks, carp.

I love the charts.

This version shows just how craptastic the Sabres are this season.  Should be framed.

I'll update these tomorrow after we have played again.  

What really surprised me is that, as bad as things have been for the Sabres, the Panthers and Islanders are not much ahead of them.  It is definitely not a lock that the Sabres will finish last in their division or conference, much less the league.

For the first time since at least the 2004-05 lockout, the Sabres may break the -20 points line, forcing me to change the range on my vertical axis.  They cleared +20 points in 2006-07, but never -20.

I don't know if you needed to add the -25 line.  I think the effect would have been better to see the line completely disappear along the bottom.

Panthers seem to be pulling away, but those pesky Islanders keep losing, too.  With our early ineptitude be sufficient to hold them off?

Yeah, I'll have to adjust my playoff chart for the new system.  The Flyers have the 8th-best record, but they get in as one of the three Metropolitan bids.  Leafs are the lowest wild card team (even looking at 35 GP.)

So, through 35GP, we are actually 16 points out (Leafs had 37.)

A little breathing room in our conference.  Maybe I should track Edmonton and Calgary, too.  What's really amazing is that anyone is even close given the Sabres 7 ROW.  If it weren't for Miller's 5 SO wins, nobody would be close.

I think if we win 2 of the next 3, we will pass edmonton at 46 games played.

Very true.  There is no clear ranking of them at this point.

I would expect us to maintain this current pace for the rest of the season. That'd put us at what, 73 points?

What sucks is that our record over the last 18 games is good. 17 points in 18 games if I'm lining dots up right. Almost a point per game would put us at just about 43-44 points on the season so far, with us just outside the playoffs at 86-88 points overall. What Nolan is doing with this club is actually pretty spectacular.

That.  Or what RR did was spectacular in its own right; much like a loose rail car in a small Quebec village.
