2004-05 Maine High School Hockey Rankings

(Scores through 1/27/05)

  Teams listed W-L-T record reflects only games whose score  is listed on the 2004-2005 Maine HS Scores page.   Please send missing ME scores in the proper format to Bruce Hall for consolidation. Thanks Bruce!   The program starts all teams with an equal arbitrary value and then  adjusts them all recursively based on game scores until the lowest cumulative  error between expected goal differentials and actual goal differentials is  reached (convergence).      The Total column is in goal units and the difference in this value between  any two teams is the predicted goal differential for a game played at a  neutral site between those two teams.  It should be noted that due to goal differential limits set in the ranking program these predicted goal differentials are only accurate when comparing teams ranked within three goals of each other. The differential between teams ranked farther apart becomes more and more understated as the chosen teams become farther apart in the rankings. A teams Total value only has meaning  in relation to other teams in the same list (i.e. Totals cannot be compared  from one week to the next or directly to a ratings list for another state). Obviously, the fewer games a team's ranking is based upon the less likely that ranking is to be accurate. As of 1/8/05 games between teams that are ranked more than 5 goals apart are not used in calculating either team's ranking.
