NE Prep Skaters Final Lists

Now we get to the skaters (forwards & defense). We are doing something different this year. Say we added some more facets (sorry bad pun).

In the past, we only rated players by their DITRP which measures them as a total prospect, which took in factors like age, the strength of the team, amount of saves, and other factors. We had some people that challenged that while once kid may be a better long-term project, they may not be better right now analytically at this moment, so how do you measure that? Well, we introduce DITRW, weighting that is independent of age factors, to measure that.

Let’s look at this year by example. While there are several incredible prospects in NE Prep hockey, there might not be a better defenseman prospect than Jack Rathbone of Dexter (Harvard) or a better forward prospect than John Farinacci of Dexter (Harvard). But it is a legit argument that they were not the best forwards or defense in NE Prep last year, that could probably go to players such as Matthew Fawcett of Winchendon (Quinnipiac) or Matthew Guerra of Cushing (Bentley) as forwards or Patrick Lavin of Worcester Academy or Jayson Dobay of Thayer (UMass) as defensemen who lead their teams to great success last year. So we should recognize those achievements as well.

Why penalize a player for mere age, especially since the NCAA D1 & D3 programs average in the 20’s for freshmen? We heard you and will rank both age-related prospect analytic lists as well as those independent of those factors.

The NE Prep #DITRyLists ver #1 2017-2018

The first rankings of the season off a small sample and there are many surprises earlier on with the early games. Injuries, missing players, and slow starts are giving some true Diamonds in the Rough (#DITRyPlayers) to shine.

Remember DITRHockey lists are always about the weighted stats and that is it #statsallfolks. It’s about identifying players that might not be on everyone’s radar by showing the weighted production and how it measures up to all players.

The #DITRyPlayer lists, Goalie, Forward, and Defense Rankings with twitter links will be available starting mid-week with a special offer below to get access to ALL the rankings to come…..
