Yeah, but at that time my backup goalie was 3rd goalie in the league by GAA and %SV. But he had really bad game against you.

Ok, so we will finish this season after all. But I'm in a slump...4 losses in a row, that did not happened to me since S3 or so :-)

On the other hand, Vandals are finishing really strong despite koekefix being quite inactive. Let's see what happens in the playoffs.

Plus I set the record for greatest flop! I was in first around game 25 and now I won't even make the playoffs! Awesome. Wish I had some excuse since I hardly made any changes and when I did, it seemed to make no difference.

Yeah, you went down pretty fast. Also Minutemen... they attacked top4 some time ago and looked unbeatable, but now they our outside PO (but they have still chance to get there in last round). 

The 3 points per win make a lot - I was battling for 1st place, then I lost 5 in a row and I'm 15 points behind the 1st place. Well, also because Vandals won 8 in row (in regular time).  But 15 points difference in this league is like an ocean.

Winning only 8 of 30 will do that, haha. If not for my hot start, I'd be relegated for sure. Noted the Minutemen hot and cold as well. Maybe it is the parity, maybe it is randomness, who knows. Will see what happens in March!

Well, the game is streaky for sure - you loose two games because of bad luck and then you are more likely to loose more. And on the other hand, you can beat a good team that start you winning streak. It's not a bad thing generally, although it can be very depressing. But look at NHL, the streak are there as well. Panthers in 15/16 went from 14-12-4 to 26-12-4, CBJ in 16/17 made it to 16 wins (and yet one season ago they made second longest loosing streak at the beginning of season of all time with 8 losses). And those were not great teams that were contenders for SC. Rather ok or mediocre teams. Ducks are not bad and they have 12 losses in a row now.

Here is some data that will make some of us feel better.  I actually ended the season with MORE wins and points than last season, but last season I finished 8th and 11th this season.  So yes, the league is definitely more competitive this season than last.  In fact, going back 13 seasons with GHL, this was my highest point total and wins, yet I have previously made the playoffs in 4 other seasons with lower total number of wins.  

 

I think the stats this season (for all stats) are skewed due to having two non-player and non-competitive teams in the league.  This doesn't take away from anyone's accomplishments, but I think almost every team can thank those other two teams for about 15GFs and almost guaranteed 24 points in the standings. 

 

Not that I am complaining since it meant I didn't have to worry about falling that low in the standings for once!  hahaha.

See, I'm not the only one that doesn't notice when Vandals win another championship!  Congrats!

Congrats to the Vandals! It was a good series, apart from the massacre in the last game.
