    And they did not break the record either (just 3rd fastest).

    Vegas has 78 wins in only 129 games in an other era that would have been crazy to win 60% of your game like that, Bowman 70s Habs was not doing it every season, change those 20% of games ending up in ties to a win (even 50-50 break down of them) and it would change their wins total quite a bit.

    If Vegas achieve to play mediocre until win 1000 I would imagine they would beat all the current fastest team to 1,000 by a significant amount of games if the rules stay the same.

    And both Philly and Montreal doing it faster is legitimately impressive given their environments at the time for different reasons. San Jose's first 1,000 wins being 3rd among the new generations of teams is pretty good. It's not like you see any other original six or 1967 team in this mix or anyone in between. Given that the Sharks were the last time that the league really screwed over for expansion purposes and how historically bad they were in their San Francisco days, it's impressive. That's all it needs to be. I don't know why people feel the need to do everything they can to denigrate it instead of just acknowledging it and moving on.

    I wouldn't imagine them to win a Cup in 1.000 games. Maybe in a 1,000 games, sure.

    Are we pretending that the sharks 1000 wins were on equal footing with those teams?

    No, we're not so I don't know why you'd even bring it up in a thread that's not about them.

    Cant compare the no tie league with the tie league tho. They should be in separate categories.

    A better metric would be to just compare team win % from pre and post tie rule.

    I'm gonna need someone from our statistics community to break out each team's true win lose tie record. The only fair measurement across all eras would be regulation time wins. No OT wins at all because their have been times when games ended in a tie immediately after 60min.

    Since they entered the league in the regular season, 1000 win 991 loses and 121 ties, seems pretty much the definition of average. Anaheim and Minnesota definitely have the chance to pass them and Nashville almost certainly will. This is purely a function of no more ties then a super successful franchise.

    Detroit has won 1178 by comparison over the same time period.

    The Sharks were an expansion team who was below .500 for the first 8 seasons, and 9 of their first 12. They haven't had a losing season since 2002-03, Darryl Sutter's last year with the franchise, and when Teemu Selanne and Vincent Damphousse were their leading scorers.
