Just in time for Massachusetts Championships and New England Championships we will release the 2014 MA Selects Rankings for the current players. #justthestats #statstellnolies #URBetRthan1A
Please note, statistical analysis is defined as “statistical analysis involves collecting and scrutinizing every single data sample in a set of items from which samples can be drawn”. The goal of statistical analysis is to identify trends, sometimes from small sample sizes, the smaller the sample the size the bigger the chance of abnormalities. It is a tool. So please note there may be places were coaches / scouts / advisors / players and of course parents will not agree with these analysis pages….the stats are of course offensively weighted….BUT, as the saying goes, the stats don’t lie. While there will be players that are undoubtedly more “acclaimed” that others on the list, the combination of statistics that are weighted by strength of team, schedule, position weight, birth year is a good predictor of our scale which is the DITR rankings. That being said the small sample size (14 games) will allow for anomalies such as a goalie playing only against weaker teams, a player that puts up big numbers only against weaker teams, etc. This list is intended as a way to sort and to find DITR players, the larger the sample size the better the formulas would work, but there will be a few players that deservingly should be higher or lower but the difference of a few bad games or great games make the huge difference.
The other question is if a higher DITR ranked ’99 is better than a ’98 right now? No. It means that when that ’99 reaches that same age as the ’98 they are PROJECTED to be better, BASED on the statistics from the season. In interest of time I did not list schools and commitments, but will update at a later point.
Get ’em before the other coaches do, get your pre-analysis done before you get to the rinks
Hopefully you will enjoy and happy scouting!!
