Default 2017-18 Flames Playoff Snake

The playoff snake is back for another season. To recap for the returnees, and explain for the newcomers, the black line represents 96 points normalized over the season, which is a 1.171 points per game pace. As long as the red snake gets to 96 points, the Flames will make the playoffs. The black line has nothing to do with the current standings, what the team in 8th place is doing, or any other variation. It does not matter if a team gets into the playoffs with only 80 points. The black line will not be changed to another number. This includes, but is not limited to, 94, 92, and 97. Explanation why is from this post: https://forum.calgarypuck.com/showpo...&postcount=616

This thread has absolutely nothing to do with Sports Club Stats, nor does it have anything to do with the likelihood or chance the Flames will make the playoffs. Please do not bring these up in this thread. There are many other threads for that purpose. Anyone bringing up Sports Club Stats will be punched in the taint.

No team in the western conference has achieved 96 points and missed the playoffs. Only one team in the east, the 2014-15 Bruins, achieved 96 points and missed. I am including Calgary's last two playoff years for comparative purposes.

2015-16: Let's just ignore this season ever happened
2014-15: https://forum.calgarypuck.com/showthread.php?t=142284

After getting zero points in the first game of the season, the red snake captured two points in game two. The red snake is 0.341 points below the black line. It is matching the green snake, and is two points above the purple snake.

Yeah buddy!! I was thinking about posting to harass you for this, but then figured it might be a touch early to demand the Snek.

Glad to see you thought it was time too

Hey squiggs this thread is good and all, but I'm 99% sure you're going to need a "first in the pacific" snake or a "first in the west snake" this year.
