Competitive balance in the National Hockey League since the 2004-2005 lockout

by Dineen, Nicholas Gerard

Abstract

Previous sports studies on competitive balance have used many different economic tools to determine whether a league is balanced or not. In this paper the Herfindahl- Hirschman index is used to measure competitive balance in the National Hockey League. This study was done using the year before the lockout (2003-2004) as well as every year post lockout up to last year (2010-2011) in hopes of seeing whether competitive balance in the National Hockey League has increased since the 2004-2005 lockout. The numbers show that since the lockout competitive balance has increased in the National Hockey League with the major factors being offensive talent, defensive talent, and the lockout.
