A Take On the Power Rankings

Posted this on the Ticat board yesterday:

Thought I would try my own take on power rankings. Stats are below. I have taken the points for and against for each team over the last 6 games and then converted them into a point differential per game. The ranking is self-explanatory. No strength of schedule adjustment calculated. Some food for thought.
