canes odds almost 70% to make playoffs

NHL playoff chances by sports club stats has the hurricanes 2:3 to make the playoffs.

with the rangers and sabres under 50%

 

this is interesting stuff. well worth a look.

 

this is probably one of the coolest sites ive ever seen:

http://www.sportsclubstats.com/NHL/Eastern/Southeast/Hurricanes.html

from the site:

What is It:

3 things:

  1. Your teams odds of making the playoffs (or winning the title for sports without playoffs).
  2. How upcoming games impact those odds.
  3. How well they have to finish out to have a shot.

It knows the season schedule and scores for past games. Each night it grabs any new scores from the internet and simulates the rest of the season by randomly picking scores for each remaining game. The weighted method takes the opponents record and home field advantage into account when randomly picking scores, so the better team is more likely to win. The 50/50 method gives each opponent an equal chance of winning (or tying if the sport allows it) each game. When it’s finished "playing" all the remaining games it applies the league’s tie breaking rules to see where everyone finished. It repeats this random playing out of the season million of times, keeping track of how many "seasons" each team finishes where. Finally it updates the site with the new results for you to read with your morning coffee.
