SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: B-

At 10-10-2 the Canucks are exceeding expectations. The combined projected win total based on per game money lines is 8.3 wins. They have exceeded expectations in home games. Their 5-3-0 home record is +20% better than their expected win percentage. Losers of 5 in a row they have a 38.4% chance of seeing that extend to 7 straight. In simulations where the Canucks played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 39.7% of the time (#29 in the league). This is their peak for the season. Back on 6/11 they were at 34.4%.

Their record is better than it should be. Their average goal differential is -0.45 which ranks #27 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #18. They are the #21 ranked team in goal differential (based on all teams' road stats). This is the same ranking they have among home teams. Their average goal differential in their past 7 games is -0.86 which ranks them #25 over this stretch, slightly better than the season overall.
