Title: NHL Ranking System
Abstract:  This is a project that we did last year in our Graph Theory class. One of the types of graphs we learned about in the class was tournaments.
Specifically, how to take a tournament and rank teams based on wins and strength of their schedules. We choose to take this concepts that we learned and apply them to the NHL. We wrote an algorithm to create a ranking system for all NHL teams for both last year’s season and of all time. With the results that we found we were able to create a side by side comparisons with what we found to what the standings portrayed.
