20 wins in just 25 goals, featuring a 13-game win streak. The most points (41) of any team in the National Hockey League (NHL). Unquantifiable resilience and swagger. However it’s phrased, the New Jersey Devils are taking the league by storm, playing at a ridiculous (and almost certainly unsustainable) 134-point pace.

Now that we’re a bit past the halfway point of the 2022 National Football League (NFL) regular season, the players’ statistics have been somewhat cemented. Things in the NFL change rapidly from game to game, but the sample size of touches has reached a point where the consistent players are on top and likely will continue to dominate. It’s a very close year in pretty much every position, and records for overall teams have been far from what was expected since game one.

Zero wins. Five losses. Two overtime losses. Infinite frustration. That’s the story of the Vancouver Canucks rough start to the season. Nearly one-tenth of the season elapsed and Vancouver hadn’t won a game. Their negative 12-goal differential, the second-worst mark in the league and lack of wins are bad, but the bad results tell only part of the story.
The current season of the National Football League (NFL) has been a doozy. From feelings of triumph to heartbreak, the past couple of weeks have been a rollercoaster for even the most casual of football fans. After an offseason of many huge changes, it’s expected that predictions for this current season would be off as players are transitioning and getting used to new environments and teams, but I don’t think anyone thought it would be this wild.

This was not the case this past week.
In the midst of football season, there haven’t been too many noteworthy stories in the National Basketball Association (NBA). But on Oct. 4, 2022, an event occurred that I believe will dictate the next 10 to 15 years of the NBA landscape.
