Estimating the Reign’s playoff chances.

Many of you are probably familiar with the website In my professional opinion, its founder/inventor should be the richest man on the planet by now.

My blog is at least 2 percent richer for the fact that I can tell you the Reign’s chances of making the playoffs currently stand at 3.1 percent. Using a computer to crunch the number for every possible record, for every team, for the remainder of the season, that’s the figure came up with. Based on the Reign’s current standing (9 points behind Victoria for the seventh and final playoff spot), it should come as no surprise.

There’s plenty more on the site to throw your brain into if you enjoy being a stat geek, and have some time to kill at work. Especially if you go beyond the ECHL (permutations are calculated for the NHL, AHL and KHL too).

Also, go check out today’s notebook if you haven’t already.

    thats 2.9% more of a chance I am giving them, too inconsistent. Though, I will still be at every game cheering for MOST of the team.
