Yeah, I don't care what people think about the stat itself but I have done a ton of research on it as an indicator of success. I went back to 1999 at one point. Bottom line if you aren't a top possession team, using CF%, you aren't winning. Outliers are there but there really aren't many, all winning teams are top ten, most are top five. 2016 playoffs I made actual bets on a bracket using CF%, only one team beat the trend, the Sharks, until they lost to the number two CF% team that year, the Pens. This season in every main board thread I picked the higher seeded CF%, I may go 8 for 8.
