Power Rankings: Study on % Chance to Win it All
« on: February 15, 2017, 10:36:46 AM »
Instead of doing a normal one of these I did some statistics instead.  This will be our 6th year, so with 5 years behind us we have a large enough sample to make some interesting statistically insights.  I looked into the % chance each playoff seed has at making it to the Semi-Finals, Finals, and Winning it All.  You do not want to be the 9 or 10 seed.  This also shows that winning your division helps, but the best team can come from outside the top 4 as well. 

This is our current playoff standings. 
                                                                              % Chance to make the following rounds:

   Standing      Team      Semi-Finals      Finals      Victor   
   1      Vancouver Canucks      100%      60%      40%   
   2      St. Louis Blues      40%      0%      0%   
   3      Buffalo Sabres      80%      80%      20%   
   4      Edmonton Oilers      20%      0%      0%   
   5      Colorado Avs      80%      20%      20%   
   6      Boston Bruins      20%      0%      0%   
   7      Los Angeles Kings      40%      20%      20%   
   8      Carolina Hurricanes      20%      0%      0%   
   9      Anaheim Ducks      0%      0%      0%   
   10      Detroit Red Wings      0%      0%      0%

Interesting.  What goes into these figures?  It must be heavy on history since my odds should be much lower than St Louis!

Oh, it's just based on the seeding history.  I see.

Oh is it based on historical seeding only?

Yeah just historical history of the seeds themselves.  I will probably delve into past performance by the individual teams when the teams and seeding are locked in.

Basically you're saying I should let Buffalo win my division.

The seeding isn't shown correctly. Right now Buffalo would be the 3rd seed and Edmonton would be the 4th. Colorado falls to the 5th see because the top 4 seeds go to division winners. Boston would slot in as the 6th seed. 7th-10th seeds would be correct as shown.

Corrected.  I copied and pasted the wrong standings table in there.
