The standings since Dec. 31

I've put together a look at the complete standings so far in 2008, something that helps flesh out who's been playing well for a sustained period. Pittsburgh's been the best team in the league since Dec. 31, while Anaheim and Nashville are second and third.

It's time to give the Predators their due, as more and more, they're looking like a playoff team.

Here's a look at teams' goal differentials over that period:



Pt% GFA GAA Gdif
1 Pittsburgh 71.7% 3.17 2.35 0.83
2 New Jersey 65.2% 3.13 2.35 0.78
3 Montreal 65.2% 3.48 2.96 0.52
4 Buffalo 58.3% 2.83 2.71 0.13
5 Washington 63.6% 3.05 3.00 0.05
6 Philadelphia 50.0% 3.00 3.00 0.00
7 NY Rangers 52.2% 2.61 2.65 -0.04
8 Boston 61.9% 2.76 2.81 -0.05
9 Florida 45.8% 3.13 3.21 -0.08
10 Ottawa 47.8% 3.04 3.30 -0.26
11 Tampa Bay 54.5% 2.82 3.09 -0.27
12 Carolina 52.2% 2.70 3.13 -0.43
13 Atlanta 52.3% 2.59 3.09 -0.50
14 NY Islanders 52.1% 2.50 3.00 -0.50
15 Toronto 45.7% 2.48 3.26 -0.78



% GFA GAA Gdif
1 Nashville 68.0% 3.20 2.44 0.76
2 Anaheim 69.6% 2.52 2.04 0.48
3 Detroit 63.6% 2.64 2.18 0.45
4 Phoenix 60.4% 3.13 2.79 0.33
5 Minnesota 61.4% 3.00 2.68 0.32
6 Dallas 60.4% 2.63 2.42 0.21
7 Calgary 59.5% 2.90 2.86 0.05
8 Edmonton 54.8% 2.90 2.90 0.00
9 Los Angeles 54.3% 3.22 3.26 -0.04
10 San Jose 52.3% 2.68 2.77 -0.09
11 Colorado 47.7% 2.36 2.59 -0.23
12 Vancouver 52.4% 2.76 3.00 -0.24
13 Chicago 45.7% 2.48 2.83 -0.35
14 St. Louis 50.0% 2.78 3.17 -0.39
15 Columbus 47.9% 2.29 3.00 -0.71

I know things have been pretty number heavy around here lately, but I think I'm just waiting for the trade deadline mass to pass through the system.

I'm afraid I can't stomach much more Mats Sundin talk.
