FINAL: 2016-17 “NHL 3-Point” Standings

3-Point Standings –

The actual NHL standings are posted on the left and the alternative standings on the right.  The alternative standings are based on the NHL allotting 3 points in every NHL game.  Three (3) points would be awarded for a win in regulation time instead of 2 points while OT and SO wins will be two points and finally one point for an OT or SO loss.

The NHL 3-point standings will now be in a  3 – 2 – 1 – 0  format.

Keep in mind that these standings are skewed because if NHL teams were actually playing in this format the results would/should be much different.
