CHL Rankings Comparison

Here is my rankings comparison with the newly released CHL Top 10:
Evans Rankings (as of 10/16 at 10 am Pacific) Canadian Hockey League
1 Blainville-Boisbriand Blainville-Boisbriand
2 Kingston London
3 Spokane Spokane
4 Guelph Kingston
5 London Medicine Hat
6 Sault Ste. Marie Seattle
7 Kelowna Charlottetown
8 Oshawa Guelph
9 Medicine Hat Kelowna
10 Charlottetown Rimouski

Evans Rankings has Seattle ranked at #22 and Rimouski at #26, here is an explanation as to why they are rated so low in our ladder:

Seattle: In my formula, you are not rewarded or punished for shootout wins or losses. Seattle has 3 shootout wins so far which already puts them at a disadvantage when it comes to accumulating a positive score. Add in the fact that of Seattle regulation or overtime wins only 1 has come from a team with a win % above .500, and 2 have come against teams with a win % of .100. Not a very good regulation/OT win resume so far. The next 5 games don't do the T-birds any favor either as they have Kamloops, PG, Swift Current, Tri-City and Vancouver. The Swift Current game should be a good one and one that they will need to win before a shootout in order to climb the Evans Rankings ladder.

Rimouski: Rimouski is ranked low due to bad luck. 7 wins on the season really aren't that bad but 2 were in a shootout and 2 were against winless Shawinigan. Right there they have 4 zeros were they could have some positive numbers. Unfortunately the shootout wins will remain zeros but if/when Shawinigan starts getting results, this will have a positive impact on Rimouski.
