  1. So no Prospectus …..i can’t believe this is happening, why wouldn’t a thing that people want and will pay for and that’s growing in importance and relevance not be available …….is this the 21st century or are we back in 1962 ?!

    so sad

    • XHockey – unfortunately, putting the NHL guidebook together was not logistically possible this year. There were a few factors that were in place preventing us from putting out an NHL guidebook that would have been near our standards for 2016-17

  2. Thanks for all the hard work putting the information together. If I remember correctly, in last year’s Vukota projections there were not only player projections but also team point and/or win projections. Will those be created this year? Happy to pay! Thanks!

        • @Ryan: Could you please explain that process to me? I would be buying VUKOTA if team point/win projections are somehow included.

          • Here is an explanation provided to me by Tom today:
            Total team VUKOTA represents goal differential above replacement
            level. It takes about an extra 3 goals of goal differential to produce
            an extra point in the standings.

            Currently, in the NHL, replacement level for a team is about -123.5 goal
            differential and 51 points. Therefore, to calculate projected points
            in the standings, simply calculate (VUKOTA / 3) + 51. For an average
            team, with total team VUKOTA of 123.5, this will give 123.5 / 3 + 51 =
            92 points, which is the average team points.

            Let me know if that helps you

  3. Ryan –

    Thanks so much for your guidance. I did all the math, and my average points/team came out to 92.21 so I think I did it correctly. One question – could you please confirm that the column ‘ValT’ is the column I should be summing?

    Good hockey people – assuming I did it right, here’s the results. Good luck with your futures bets (cmon – admit it):

    • I’m having a technical issue and can’t download, but it looks about right. You always have to bear in mind that Vukota does not look at players who have never played in the NHL yet (i.e. Matthews, Laine, etc), but this is as good as you can get for expectations on established NHLers.

  4. Thanks everybody.
    Saved some time for me in excel – glad I did order the sheet before you posted this, feels better to not get this for free.
