Re: Breck

Since you asked, I believe three of the 15 skaters that played regularly (so 20%), though there could be others I'm not aware of. Two are from Selects Academy (out of state) and one from Andover, and not to mention the goaltender who left then came back. The flip side for Edina is that a high school...

Re: Breck

Name one team with previously D1 committed kids who moved in from out of state for their junior and senior year. Take your time.

Re: Breck

Was that supposed to be an argument against my point? I wasn’t saying they are the biggest, just that they are very big AND recruit nationally.

Re: Breck

Yes, but the reason a private school should be AA in spite of being small is they recruit kids for their teams - punch way above their enrollment weight. If we are kicking Breck out of A, how about we kick Edina out of high school hockey and make them play Shattuck, since they are a huge school, rec...

Re: State Tourney Games Thread

The tactical options change tomorrow and Saturday, too. Adding TV timeouts means having the kids you want on the ice significantly more. That has different advantages to different teams, but it seems like it takes away a big advantage for Andover given how they can roll three lines and expect all of...

Re: State Tourney Games Thread

Pretty crazy how deep and strong Andover is. Farmington focused on shutting down the dominant top line of Hemp-Nelson-Krause, and did, and Andover still scored six goals.

You guys are definitely on the way up - will be fun to see if you can topple Edina next year - I think you've got a shot!

Responding to nits: 41, 24, 22, 5 = 92 from seniors

Re: Coaching changes 2020/2021

I think the focus should be on the state tourney - should be a good one with a couple good quarterfinal games, and some good contests that follow. But since you mentioned it, I think you missed a senior - it was 92 out of 95. They clearly won’t score 113 goals as a group next year. But Eden prairie ...

Re: Ms. Hockey Finalists

Pretty hard to argue about Delianedis' consistency. She had three points in the two losses over the holidays. She has had 3 games in the last two seasons (now spanning 54 games) in which she's been held without a point. Langseth (just to pick one example) has had 8.

Re: Ms. Hockey Finalists

That's not a crazy ordering, by any means, but I think you (and Eagles93) are selling Langseth short. She has 63 points for a team that scored 86 goals. She had points on 73% of the goals for a third ranked team that still gives up almost 2 goals a game (unlike Andover, who wins on the back of domin...

Becca Macklin from Lakeville South looks like she's had a very good year statistically - was that a surprising omission from the 10?

Re: Special teams

Fair point. Their top two D are unquestionably very, very good, and that should lead to a very good PK - also weird (like the Blake stats).

Special teams

Andover has scored 22 power play goals, and has given up 0 while on the power play (short handed goals against). They are +22 on the PP. They have had 8 power plays scored against them, and have scored 6 short handed. They are -2 short-handed (measured this way). Similar stats for other top teams: P...

Re: KRACH Rankings 2019-20

LSQ, Can you give a little more info on the implementation of KRACH in your software? How exactly does it calculate SoS? I'm a little confused by your description. My understanding is that KRACH is based on Bradley-Terry, which iteratively computes a new value p for each team based on each observed ...

Re: Performances Worth Noting

I know, I meant current though, as in like I didn’t think they would already have been forgotten. Then I threw in a personal barb at the voters for snubbing Bullock. As you said, there are more going back further in time.

Re: KRACH Ranking - January 5

I misread the line on Blakes schedule - looks like it’s correct.

The SoS numbers are quite different than how the Krach ratings have been presented in the past (they used to vary from about 20 to 100). Are they being done differently? Or were the old ones normalized in some non-obvious way?

Re: New Topic!!! Herb Brooks Tourney Surprises

Blake is too talented to lose that game - even without Wethington... really perplexing for that team.
