There's hours of data collection here. <br /><br />Why doesn't every row add to the same number -<br /><br />H2H: There's 48 H2H results since the lockout, but 15 of them are .500.<br /><br />GD: This has 48 results.<br /><br />FenTied: There's only 4 years worth of data, so only 32 results, plus there were two teams who were 'tied', rounded to three decimal places. Of course they couldn't possibly be actually tied, but I decided to treat them that way.Triumphhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00591565610296063799noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6676139083106872096.post-26835101376174464272012-04-17T11:48:10.429-04:002012-04-17T11:48:10.429-04:00I looked at the same thing, and almost posted on i...I looked at the same thing, and almost posted on it, but decided the utility was so low because there just wasn't enough data to come to any conclusions. I found it will take about 8 more years of post-lockout playoff hockey for any of these stats to be significant enough for predictions.<br /><br />BTW- why doesnt every row in your table add to the same number? Maybe not every team had a h2h, but shouldn't GD and Fen Tied have the same number?Snarksdhttp://fearthefin.comnoreply@blogger.com
