->The HEPI takes into consideration the number of games played, wins and losses in regulation, overtime, and shootouts, and a team’s home and away split. It then values wins and losses based on each team’s strength of schedule and their opponents’ strength of schedule, objectively, to rank the programs accordingly. It does not factor in points traditionally earned in the standings table that has been used to seed teams in past seasons.

Because of the intertwined nature of the HEPI factors, each game result has the potential to change any given team’s HEPI ranking, even if the team was idle that day or played a different opponent. Up to date Hockey East Power Index standings for the men’s and women’s leagues will be updated on the Hockey East website on a daily basis.<-

I’m not sure that we can’t have a really weird qualifying scenario in this really weird season. It just seems good and right to do so.

I was curious how tonight's Ice Bus rollover impacted the initial standings that were posted on Tuesday (post #4 above).

This is as of 2000 2/12/21.

Barring major changes, it appears its UConn, Providence, and Northeastern vying for spots 4 and 5 to get the opening bye.

If our remaining games are with VT/Maine, even winning them all may not keep us in 4th place. Should Providence or NE defeat higher ranking opponents, the algorithm could elevate them. All we can do is win, but I'll be keeping (both) eyes on the scoreboard.
