    THE OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 35 - Sept 24/17

    While still too early for a ranking, there were a load of games this past week and we are getting some hints as to what may be in store. One thing which stands out is the number of split two-game series. Here are the scores from the week that was.

    THE SCORES:

    Once again, this is NOT a ranking. The teams are listed alphabetically by conference/division. One unique thing is that there have been eight 2-game series played between CIS teams so far and all series have been split. The match-ups have been:

    Calgary - Lethbridge
    Lethbridge - W. Ontario
    Regina - Manitoba
    Queen's - U.B.C.
    Concordia - U.Q.T.R.
    Concordia - Moncton
    U.Q.T.R. - McGill
    U.Q.T.R. - St. F.X.

    The OUA has done very well against the NCAA. Otherwise, very few teams stood out with either an extremely good or extremely bad pre-season. The teams are not ranked. The teams are sorted by conference/division and listed by record.

    Since there have been only 2 games in the OUA, this is very much a preliminary ranking. Hence, no numbers have been assigned. Right now the focus should be on the letter grade for each team.

    We might be one week away from a growth in the A level. If that happens, there could be a shuffling throughout. Remember – It's still early. The pre-season games don't have too much bearing already, which is unusual. I expect lots of shifting from C- to C, to C+.

    So St. FX gets a promotion. The teams most likely to get a boost next time are C teams Waterloo and Laurier.

    Too much credit being giving to the Canada West Conference, way too much

    Can't argue with Alberta at #1 at all now, but an argument can be made prior to UNB's shootout loss to Acadia as to why they were ranked behind Alberta than.

    after this you have Saskatchewan and Calgary Ranked as the 2 top "B+" teams, than of course the highest ranked team with a losing record is to no surprise "Manitoba" who are just behind the top ranked team with a .500 record Mount Royal. Manitoba is followed directly by UBC (who has a better record than Manitoba) and Lethbridge who has a terrible overall record somehow is the 15th Best team in the Country? ahead of the TOP team in the OUA so far York at # 16 unbeaten at 5-0-0 and a 8-1-0 overall record. Last but not least we have Regina the worst team in the Canada West and one of the worst in the Country ranked at #27 ahead of Multiple teams in the OUA and AUS.

    Im not trying to be an @SS as I appreciate the effort you put into these rankings, but its clearly steered in the Canada West and Manitoba's favor. You cant really give argument for records vs A, B+, B, C+ competition, because with almost every CW team being ranked too high, their being credited with wins versus better competition for that very reason.

    The AUS and CW have shown to be 2 very similar strength conferences from top to bottom over the years. And the OUA has closed the gap a lot

    The skew of the CW compared to the AUS is like this:
    CW: A1 B2 C+4 C1
    AUS: A2 B2 C+1 C2

    That skew would imply that the AUS is the strongest.

    As for Lethbridge, they started with 3 points in 4 games against Calgary and Sask. Since then they are 0-3 against MRU and UBC. After tonight they could be sliding. If they were to fall to C that would affect everything. The more likely change is Waterloo and/or Laurier moving from C to C+. We'll see what happens tonight.

    McGill, Ryerson, Toronto, and Guelph are all on a relegation alert. They hang on where they are (B and C+), but just barely.

    The AUS seems to be dividing into a top tier and a bottom tier. The "norm" has been for UNB to dominate but face stiff opposition (and often playoff defeat) at the hands of the next three national-level contenders (Acadia, St. FX, and St. Mary's). In turn, Moncton and UPEI were often capable of moving into the sphere of contenders themselves. Dalhousie, and formerly the Pids, would perhaps have made the playoffs elsewhere. But now it seems that an OUA-East type of gap is coming into play.

    The CW has turned back the clock. It looks like the old "Big Four" is coming back into play. Though capable of upsets and tough battles, UBC and MRU seem to be OK but not able to sustain themselves in the upper echelons. And Lethbridge and Regina right now would dream of being where UBC and MRU presently are.

    In the OUA, East and West are quite different every year. The OUA West has one nice feature: competitiveness. York is tough to rank because of their predominantly C-level list of opponents. Their win over Ryerson gives a basis to include them at B-level. It is not hard to imagine the bottom 8 teams in the division moving between C and C+ all year.

    In the OUA East, there is normally a wide gap between national contenders at the top and teams that couldn't come close to the playoffs elsewhere at the bottom. Lately the conference depth has improved, such that the East now usually leads the West in interlocking play. (They lead 11-9 so far this year.) The hard thing this year is ranking UQTR. They had a .500 preseason and in the regular season they have a 6-0-0 record against C teams but lost their only game outside the lowest category. I believe they are likely a B-level team but cannot put them there based on their schedule.

    My special charts for non-conference interlocking play and OUA East v West can be omitted for now, because no new games have been played. Instead, I bring another one to show the rankings skew for each conference.

    THE OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 35 #5
    to Nov 6/17

    This was a conference bye in the CW. Very little movement between categories this week, just Acadia going up and Toronto going down. Other than Acadia, other teams with notable positive weeks were Guelph, Lakehead, Western Ontario, and U.N.B. On the down side there was Brock, York, and Ottawa. Here's what happened.

    THE SCORES:

    Nov 01 Dalhousie 0 Acadia 5
    Nov 01 Saint Mary's 5 St. F.X. 4 (so)
    Nov 01 U.P.E.I. 4 Moncton 6
    Nov 02 Toronto 1 Guelph 4
    Nov 02 York 2 Laurier 6
    Nov 03 Moncton 1 New Brunswick 6
    Nov 03 St. F.X. 5 Acadia 6 (ot)
    Nov 03 Brock 2 Lakehead 3 (ot)
    Nov 03 Laurentian 4 Ottawa 3
    Nov 03 Nipissing 1 Carleton 4
    Nov 03 Queen's 3 U.Q.T.R. 6
    Nov 03 R.M.C. 0 McGill 6
    Nov 03 Ryerson 3 Waterloo 2 (ot)
    Nov 03 U.O.I.T. 2 Concordia 6

    I included the Monday night game because it is the AUS's 7th game which gave all the teams a 2nd game of the extended weekend.

    McGill, Ryerson, and Guelph answered their relegation alerts with recovery wins. Toronto did not, and they slide from C+ to C.

    At the other end, Acadia is .500 against the A level and unbeaten against the rest, so up they go. St. F.X. always confounds the rankings it seems. They get a promotion to A level and they get 2 losses, albeit in extra time.

    The top three teams from the OUA are barely clinging to the B level. McGill is 4-2-0 against C+ teams, and York and Ryerson are worse. They can all stick in B level for now. The teams at the top of C+ are tightly bunched, so one cannot say that some stand out as inevitable promotion candidates.

    Ottawa is only 2-3-0 against C level teams now. But they are 2-0-1 against B and C+ teams. So does this make them a C or a C+ team? Very borderline, hence the alert. They are just a tick ahead of the ascendant northern teams from Nipissing and Lakehead.

    THE OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 35 #6
    to Nov 12/17
    It gets late early in Usports/CIS hockey. Remembrance Day is considered early in the hockey season. But in two more weeks we will hit the mid-point of the schedule. This was an extremely “by-the-book” week. MRU split with Calgary, which is not a huge surprise, and RMC swept UQTR, which is amazing. While UQTR was a Top Ten team in offical rankings, they were only 14th in the OHT35 due to their weak schedule to date.

    This week I had completed a ranking and then on further review saw the need for a major shift. First, the A level had to be expanded, because two teams of Huskies were in a dead heat with Acadia. This would have left the B level fairly sparse. However, Carleton, Concordia, and Manitoba had comparable records to the remaining B teams.

    I also expanded the C- level, which does not affect the rankings. (The “-” teams remain in the same level on the tables.)

    THE SCORES:

    Nov 06 Saint Mary's 4 Dalhousie 1 (this was included last week)
    Nov 08 Saint Mary's 4 Acadia 3
    Nov 08 Ryerson 3 Brock 4
    Nov 08 Toronto 4 W. Ontario 1
    Nov 10 Lethbridge 2 Alberta 7
    Nov 10 Manitoba 6 Regina 1
    Nov 10 Mount Royal 3 Calgary 2
    Nov 10 U.B.C. 3 Saskatchewan 4 (ot)
    Nov 10 Dalhousie 4 U.P.E.I. 5
    Nov 10 Moncton 1 Acadia 6
    Nov 10 St. F.X. 3 New Brunswick 5
    Nov 10 Brock 4 Laurier 5
    Nov 10 Carleton 4 Ottawa 2
    Nov 10 Concordia 4 Nipissing 1
    Nov 10 Lakehead 1 Guelph 3
    Nov 10 McGill 8 Laurentian 3
    Nov 10 Queen's 2 U.O.I.T. 4
    Nov 10 Ryerson 5 Toronto 2
    Nov 10 U.Q.T.R. 1 R.M.C. 2
    Nov 10 Windsor 1 Waterloo 2
    Nov 10 York 5 W. Ontario 4
    Nov 11 Calgary 5 Mount Royal 1
    Nov 11 Lethbridge 1 Alberta 6
    Nov 11 Manitoba 6 Regina 5 (2ot)
    Nov 11 U.B.C. 2 Saskatchewan 5
    Nov 11 Dalhousie 1 New Brunswick 3
    Nov 11 Moncton 1 Saint Mary's 7
    Nov 11 St. F.X. 4 U.P.E.I. 2
    Nov 11 Carleton 4 Queen's 1
    Nov 11 Concordia 6 Laurentian 1
    Nov 11 Lakehead 2 York 4
    Nov 11 McGill 4 Nipissing 1
    Nov 11 Ottawa 4 U.O.I.T. 5
    Nov 11 U.Q.T.R. 1 R.M.C. 4
    Nov 11 Waterloo 3 Guelph 6
    Nov 11 W. Ontario 2 Toronto 4
    Nov 11 Windsor 1 Laurier 2
    Nov 12 Lakehead 2 Ryerson 4

    Starting at the top, there is no doubt about Alberta and UNB taking the top two spots, although one could argue which is #1 and which is #2. SFX is clearly the bronze team.

    The expanded A level includes the 3 A- teams. Acadia was newly promoted a week ago, and both teams of Huskies have approximately equivalent records to them.

    Concordia, Carleton, and Manitoba have now jumped to the B level. Ryerson is clinging on, but the other teams are closely ranked.

    The strange thing is the AUS has separated into extremes. They have 4 teams at A level, one at C+ and two at C. Conversely, the CW has 2 teams at each level. I decided to once again include the skew table.
