    because they changed the rules and "guaranteed" that they'd come in with decent parity by restrictign the number of players other teams could protect.

      • when they expanded from 6 to 12 they also gamed the system so that one of the expansion teams was guaranteed a spot in the Stanley Cup Final. Hence the 3 appearances by St. Louis at the beginning.

          • Don't know if anyone has linked a lightning-strike map. This one's pretty cool Hover over the "I" for information about how it works. Pretty simple. Kinda cool to look at when there is a thunderstorm happening locally, like we are having at the moment.

              • Any mass (4+ shot) shootings near you? I found some near me I'd not heard of. Buth then this is America. We are 4% of the world's population and own 45% of the World's guns.

                • NY Times has this headline: A Quarter of Humanity Faces Looming Water Crises

                  The article includes a map of the world showing what they call water stress levels.

                    In Florida we have too much water. I expect desalination plants will be a big business on the coasts.

As a foreigner, I didn't think Paris was France but I did think France was fairly homogeneously "well developed." The transition of the mapped data to the charts is really compelling.
