How it works:
  • Started with 1927-28 season, as this was the first "full" NHL season, after the WHL merge. See here for details
  • Gave the first belt to the winner of the Stanley Cup of the 1926-1927 season, the Ottawa Senators
  • No playoff games were considered. The belt was only played for during the regular season
  • The belt carried over from last season, regardless of the team with the belt making the playoffs
  • Ties during a title game resulted in the current winner still carrying the belt
  • Standings are calculated by rolling up belt wins with the latest team accociated with that team. Example, the Detroit Falcons eventually became the Detroit Red Wings.
