The NHL's current division names suck. The division names here come from the old names.

The two division winners are seeded 1 and 2 for the playoffs. The next two teams in each division play each other in the first round. The next two best teams remaining in the conference are seeded 7 and 8 and play the division winners. (As far as I can tell, the second round stays within divisions as much as possible, so if the 1 seed is in Division A, then the winner of the 1-8 series plays the winner of the 2-3 Division A series, even if the 8 seed wins and is in the other division. But it is not well documented; it is possible that if the 7 and 8 seeds are both from a different division from their opponents, and both win their series, that the second round may stay exclusively within the division.) (Addendum 18 Mar 2014: According to Sean McIndoe the 1-8 winner plays the winner of the 2-3 A series no matter what.)

About GB: this column is meant to be similar to the "games back" statistic published for MLB or the NBA. It gives a better idea of where a team is relative to other teams. (I compute this using the formula (TeamXGames-Team1Games + Team1Points-TeamXPoints)/2 .) It works similarly to MLB and the NBA--for example, if a team is 0.5 games back with a game in hand, it will be tied with the team ahead if it wins its next game; similarly, if two teams have played the same number of games, and one team is 1.0 games back, the teams will be tied if the team ahead loses its next game and the team behind wins.

About Playoff +/-: this column is calculated using the difference between actual points and an average of 1.139 points per game played. At this pace a team would earn approximately 93 points, which may be enough points to earn a team a playoff spot, but since it is not projected through the season (see Proj/82) it gives an idea of how a team is doing now relative to that pace. (This figure can fluctuate quickly early in the season. As a reference, 1.2 points per game works out to six points in five games; I tweak the actual default points per game value periodically. You can append "ppg=1.xxx" to change this value between 1 and 1.5.)

About Proj/82: this column projects each team's current point total and projects it over an 82-game season. It gives a better idea of where teams are relative to each other in the standings, since often teams have played different numbers of games, making points an inaccurate measure of standings. (This figure can be misleading early in the season.)

About Pct: this column is calculated by comparing each team's projected points to the league average. It is meant to mimic winning percentage in a zero-sum league, so that .500 will represent exactly the league average. (My motivation for this statistic was seeing various general managers and coaches of bad teams claim that they have had X years of ".500" hockey, when clearly many mediocre and bad teams can say that based just on wins and losses.) The league average is currently 91.77 points over 82 games. (Basically, it is (Proj82/leagueAverage)/2 .) (This figure can be misleading early in the season.)

About MaxPts: this is the maximum number of points attainable by the team. It is mainly useful towards the end of the regular season. To compute a team's "magic number", the number of points needed by a team to clinch a playoff spot (either earned by the team, or lost by the team behind them), take the ninth-largest MaxPts value (this may not be the MaxPts value of the current ninth-place team!), subtract team A's current points, and add 1. (If team A owns the tiebreaker against the ninth team adding 1 is not necessary.) To compute a team's "tragic number", the number of points needed to be eliminated from a playoff spot (either earned by the team ahead, or lost by the team), take the team's MaxPts value, subtract the eighth-place team's current points (ordered by points), and add 1. (If the result is negative, then a playoff spot has been clinched or the team has been mathematically eliminated.)

The standings view currently does not take in to account head-to-head tiebreakers.
