Scientific Tracking System Not New

You may think that my Scientific Habs Tracking System (SHTS), which I do every year using high-tech yellow highlighter and ultra modern computer page link, is something new.

Heck, I used to do it often, long before computers were invented, using the very fine method of red star for a Habs win, blue for a loss, and a straight red line for a tie on an Esso schedule.

Below is the only one I have left from those days, the 1966-67 season, which also happens to be the year the Toronto Maple Leafs won their last Stanley Cup by beating Montreal four games to two.

Look at the run Montreal went on in March and April, losing just once, in Toronto of all places.

The standings for 1966-67 were:

Chicago 94
Montreal 77
Toronto 75
New York 72
Detroit 58
Boston 44

  1. Dennis, after two disappointing losses in a row my heart is as heavy as a pigeon surviving on MacDonald’s garbage.

  2. The Scientific Habs Information Tracking System (SHITS) should get a Nobel Prize for its beauty and simplicity.

    And Dennis should be stick boy too.

    But who said life was fair?
