Just a little update to let you all know where things stand. Nearly everything has been put into the disk ready to go, pending the rating reviews. I still needMessage 1 of 33 , Jul 2, 2006View SourceJust a little update to let you all know where things stand. Nearly everything has been put into the disk ready to go, pending the rating reviews. I still need to get some split stats for the test disk (Derrick is working on those for me.....they don't seem as easy to get as in past years). Once the reviews are done, these will be collated and put into the disk. Hopefully I'll get a split stat set and have it totally imported before the reviews are done. Then, there will be 2-3 weeks of testing/tweaking on the split disk to get everything working well, and then all the adjustments get fed back into the main disk. Right now, everything is hinging on the reviews getting done. I know Justin sent out a TON of review sheets, but we need to now start getting those in, as it is July. Below is a list, by team, of the number of reviews that I have. The goal is 7 per player (most reviewers do a whole team, hence they are listed by team). I will continue to request reviews until we have at least 7 per player. Thus, we are about 28% done right now based on the totals that I have. Please try to finish up your reviews shortly so that we can get the disk out before September 1.

a challenging year with the short season. Much more variability in the
test numbers. Larger sample sizes (more games) makes the statistics
cleaner and the numbers converge easier....not true this year. Good to
know that the new CBA will keep us from going through this again for the
next 8 years. We'll do what we can to get the disk to converge to
reasonable numbers, then do the final updating before release.
Release date is still TBD, depending on test results, but it will get
out before the NHL season starts. I was hoping to get it out earlier
this year, with the voting system helping get ratings faster, but the
short season variability has used up that extra time with extra test runs.
