The real reason you shouldn't worry is PDO. WIthout getting into it too much, PDO is an advanced hockey stat that is used to calculate 'luck' for teams by combining their shooting and save percentages. In short, anything below a 980 PDO shows that a team is unlucky and anything above 1020 indicates good luck so far. Teams tend to regress toward 1000 over the season. Now check out Idaho.
You'll see that their 952 PDO shows that they are not as bad off as things might seem in the standings. And further, some teams in their own division like Colorado (6-1) and Wichita (6-0) are flying a bit too close to the sun where luck is concerned.
