The TBRW? predictions are based on each team's previous year's performance, modified by off-season roster changes.
Each team starts with its previous regular season standing RS.
The number of post-season upset wins or losses PS is then added.
Finally, added to this score is a function of the following modifiers:
5pct Conference % in 5 seasons previous to past season.
1/2 Second-half improvement in previous regular season.
RetG % of previous season's goals scored returning for current season.
RetD % of previous season's defenseman games played returning for current season.
RetM % of previous season's goaltender minutes played returning for current season.
The coefficient multiplier for the sum of the modifiers helps balance the effects
of roster changes and also generates Pred, the final
score which signifies the number of points a team should finish with.
