Another alternative view of the standings


And for another view of how the standings would look under a different system, here's what you get using the Olympic system, in which all games are 3-point games. (A win in regulation earns all three points; overtime/shootout games are two for the winner and one for the loser.) As in other such alternative analyses, the effect on play can't be quantified...
