Thanks for sharing this, this is really good at seeing how our AZ teams size up nationally. Not surprising, not well. But not even Cali teams fared that well - 5 teams from Socal scored in the D2 bucket, plus one from Norcal. Kinda surprised not even Pinnacle rated that high. Very sobering indeed.

Below is a link to the research paper  enjoy

A comparative study was performed that included the analysis of demographic and competitive rating data for
boys’ interscholastic high school ice hockey teams located in the North America. A composite rating profile
was generated using SportsoftTM windows-based software (least-squares method) that reduced the raw game
scores of over 146,000 games played by 5,479  boys’ teams in both United States and Canada between the
ages of 15 to 18.  Individual rating profiles for each state high school league were extracted, tabulated, trend
lines plotted and analysed.  State rating profiles were grouped by region and comparative graphs were plotted
using the state of  Minnesota as a common benchmark.
