One thought on “Episode Claude Giroux (228): Tim Peel Scores! Oilers are Hot and Edmonton is in Love with Hitchcock but Not Andrew Ference.”
Dale made the comment in Episode 228 that half the teams have to be under .500 and half over .500. Not true in the loser point NHL. In the 2017-18 season, only 10 teams out of 31 finished at or under .500. You hear a lot of talk on podcasts and NHL coverage in general about how tight the league is and how many overtime games there are. That’s because if a game is tied in the last 10 minutes, no one tries to win anymore, they just try to get to overtime. If the NHL is going to stay with the loser point system, they have to go to a 3-2-1 points system and really reward regulation wins cause it’s a joke now.
