A team's 101st win isn't worth much at all.

Especially if another team wins 102.


I was thinking of it the other way around -- that once you've clinched a playoff spot, an additional win isn't worth much.

It's very unlikely that two teams in the same division will win more than 100 games. It's only happened three times since 1969. And even then, the "runner-up" is almost guaranteed a wild-card spot.
