- Ok, it's early Sept and I figure I need to provide an update (thanks to
Matt Young for jogging my memory on that).
The disk process is going well. We're about 3 weeks into the testing
phase, and I'd say we're probably 75% done there. Things are on track
with past years, with a potential early Oct release.
The new rating generation process went really really well, it's just
that we got a late start. Ken Danila's "voting" system got us the
ratings we needed in about 2 weeks time. So, next year, we'll get an
earlier start (if there's an NHL season to work with) and likely be able
to get a disk out by August. We have to work through a few bugs of
working with the data from the voting (we reconcile it against multiple
scouting report sources to eliminate anomalies....thanks to Herb Garbutt
there), and the team of Ken and Herb have worked closely with me to
translate all the data we have into a disk. It's looking pretty good.
