RIT Teams of the Decade

The Method

First off let me say that I had way bigger plans for what this was going to be. A ton of things have changed since I started the project, and unfortunately most of them having a negative impact on the amount of free time I have available to dedicate to compiling the data, information, and writing in up in a somewhat coherent way.

If I kept the vision the same from where it was in the beginning it would take me months to complete (more than it already has). Instead of laboring on the idea, I threw together the information to create the lists that you’ll find below.

So what exactly qualified someone to be on this list? First, they had to have played a season between 2009-2010 and the current 2019-2020 season. Only data from these seasons was considered (if they played in 2008-2009 that information was left out). The data was pumped into a very simple model that I created, a few formulas were run, and a score was given for each player. For each team the top 13 forwards, top 7 defenders, and top 3 goalies were selected.

The positions were assigned based on the officials rosters listed for the particular season. If a player is listed as a position for the majority of their career, or if a player is listed as a combo position (F/D) with a singular position for one or more years of their career they are given that position.

I will qualify these lists now by saying this: there are a lot of very good players who missed the list due to fractions of a point.
