Did the page change? Change the URL

Go to the new NHL standings page here.  Look there’s the spinning thingies as the data loads.  Oh what fun.

Now, change the standings to “Wild Card.”  Now, try to bookmark it.  Oh, that’s right, the URL didn’t change.  So, everytime you come back to the page, you have to reset it to wild card.

Sometimes, people don’t think things out.  But if the look of a page changes due to some user action, you really need for it to be reflected in a way that allows the user to come straight back to that view, and really, the only sane and reliable way is to change the URL.
