http://www.mghca.com/page/show/427504-krach-rankings (direct link)

The final rankings for the past 15 seasons will also be archived there in addition to the most current season's rankings, once ready for release (at some point).

1) This only counts games vs. MSHSL varsity teams.
2) This only uses scores entered on the Girls' Hockey Hub/MGHCA website:
http://www.mghca.com
To enter a missing score contact your team rep. Each team should have a person responsible for updating this information (coach, parent, manager, etc.) - you can also email: scores@tstmedia.com - see: http://www.mngirlshockeyhub.com/page/sh ... mit-scores (they really want a scoresheet image though)
3) For past years' ranking and further explanation:

Thanks for posting so often with the side-by-side graphics....It is fun to watch how the teams are affected by each game....Especially in January, when the teams have plenty of games under their belt...

You're welcome.

A bit of automation after all these years makes things easier.

Hopefully will continue.

Of note in Class A, KRACH has had Thief River Falls as their No. 1 for the past four rankings, but on Tuesday the Prowlers fell from the unbeaten ranks, losing rather decisively to Warroad 3-0. Looking at the box score the result doesn't appear to be a fluke, as Warroad outshot them 45-13.

I was watching this game to see what would happen ranking wise but also on the ice. The rankings the next day didn't pick up the score but did yesterday. Interestingly, based on games last night as well, now KRACH has Red Wing as #1 in A, TRF #2, and Warroad #3.

Another big game for rankings will be the Edina/Centennial game today. Everyone else/every other ranking computer/LPH/etc. has Edina as #1 - so maybe KRACH will be "corrected" should Edina win. It seems SOS is playing a factor in Centennial over Edina in KRACH.

Big game is right! In the Week 6 pick'em contest I agonized over this one. Looking at all the stats and KRACH, and considering the "home field" advantage, it would have made sense to go with Centennial. But I just couldn't bring myself to do it, also considering that Edina is probably a little deeper and could take advantage when the 3rd lines are out there. But will that be enough to offset Centennial's explosive 1st line?

Sounds like centennial pulled off the win 3 to 2 after jumping out 2 to 0 with a late 3rd period goal but outshot 2 to 1 by Edina.

Must have been a real barn-burner. Given the shot differential I'm not sure which team I would favor in a re-match! The win does, however, definitely solidifies Centennial's No. 1 KRACH ranking.
