    -RPI will now award 90% of a win for winning in OT and 10% of a win for losing in OT (this part is minor news)

    -Looking looks minimizing fights in the quarterfinals might go away in 2019-2020???!!!????!!!?!
    Starting a new thread to combine all the numbers related things

    So turns out the RPI thing appears to have been rejected, which means I'm about 20% happier than I was this weekend: https://www.bcinterruption.com/bosto...-womens-hockey

    Slightly off point, but if the ECAC had an ARM, we could learn when in recorded history both Brown and Union had 2Ws at this point in the season.

    Brown actually had two W's after its first two games two seasons ago, when it played Sacred Heart. Won 6-1, 7-0. Finished the season 7-22-0.

    GRaNT Rankings are out -- although I'll feel better about them after Franklin Pierce plays a few more games lol

    The ECAC is looking for a prosthetic ARM, if you will.

    I thought Dr. Richard Kimble was looking for that...

    I ran a geometric mean on each conference using KRACH -- the main takeaway here is that the bottom of the ECAC is really, really bad:

    Code:
    WCHA	WHEA	ECAC	CHA
    1813.09	637.67	387.65	189.04
    993.18	514.85	338.09	115.10
    447.41	360.75	319.61	70.43
    358.69	257.41	205.15	41.90
    89.35	159.44	141.90	15.96
    77.49	127.30	79.41	12.76
    20.65	91.46	76.06	48.54
    236.45	54.67	67.67	
    	38.65	29.82	
    	8.68	21.92	
    	126.36	19.87	
    		18.58	
    		83.82
    Bold number at the bottom is each conference's rating.

    if 18.58 is really, really bad, what is 8.68?
    but you are right, 4 teams under 40, even the CHA only has 2
    we live in an era where a video clearly shows Acosta pushing the interns arm, yet the media can get away with claiming it is fake because, well, that's what many want to hear

    Pairwise Calculator is live: https://www.bcinterruption.com/bosto...ngs-calculator

    You'll notice that USCHO has St. Anselm and mine doesn't (or rather, mine just puts St. Anselm at the bottom). With only 5 teams, the NEWHA will not play enough games against each other to get to the 20 required games against D-I/D-II competition to be eligible for selection (even including the 3 game NEWHA playoffs). However, Post and Sacred Heart play enough non-conference games to qualify, so those two teams *are* included (but won't be a factor).
