    Obviously this wont keep up as once the Central starts playing themselves more we'll start to see more losses accumulate.


    But early in the season as teams play a lot of out of division games, it's becoming quite clear the Central is by far the strongest division in hockey. 5 Teams in the Top 10 in the league, they're basically just beating up on teams in other divisions right now.

    The Central's been a bloodbath for a decade.

    Based on Point %, they are five out of eleven, but 3 out of 5 is impressive.

    So much for that: 3 out of the top 5 are from the Atlantic. I’m no statistician, but that seems more impressive.

    PS: I was right - 3 of 5 is 60% dominance, 5 of 9 is 56%. :laugh:

    If I've got the math right, the order would be:

    TBL - Atl
    Nas - Cen
    Pit -Metro
    Min, Col (Cen), and Tor, Bos (Atl) all tied
    Mon - Atl
    Chi, Wpg (Cen), SJS (Pac) all tied

    So, 4 out 8 for the Atlantic
    5 out of 11 for the Central

    And, that's kind of how it was last year as well.

    Remember when some people thought the Atlantic was the toughest?

    Ya if only the central teams had the luxary of playing the Senators, Canadiens, Red Wings, and Sabres 4 times a year each. :laugh:

    Compared to the divisional games the central teams have to play 4 times each?

    Preds, Jets, Avs, Blues, Stars, Hawks, Wild? There are zero easy divisional matchups in the central. All 7 are probably capable of making the playoffs in the right division.

    Whenever toughest division discussion happens people always try to downplay the central.
