Why I'm Not Necessarily Freaking Out About the Blues (Just Yet)

Dilip Vishwanat

The following chart is a little something I quickly pulled together hoping to keep people from freaking out too much about the recent woes of our beloved 'Note. We're really not doing all that bad when you remember that we've played the fewest number of games in the league (Colorado, Phoenix, and Dallas have also only played 32) going into tonight. That gave us four games in hand on the League leading Blackhawks.

The following chart shows the points earned per game played (again entering tonight) and what that would look like if projected over a full 82 game season.
