View Full Version : ECAC-East Pick 'Em - PLAYOFF Week #1

As with last year, the competition will continue into the Conference Playoff weekends, consisting of the entirety of the ECAC-East and NESCAC tournaments, as well as the NE-10 games involving St. Anselm and St. Michael's. For these weeks, you will receive 4 points for correctly predicting the winne However, +8 and -2 seems a bit excessive for the exact/opposite score reward and penalty, so those will remain +4 and -1.

Additionally, since there are no ties to pick, you will have the added bonus of predicting whether or not a game goes into overtime. You will receive 4 bonus points for correctly picking that a game goes to overtime (regardless of the winner), but in this risk/reward system, you will lose 2 points in a game you predicted would require an extra period ends in regulation!

So, our point values will be as such:

+4 for a correct winner
+0 for an incorrect winner

+4 for an exact score
-1 for an opposite score

+4 for a correct OT pick
+0 for not picking OT
-2 for an incorrect OT pick

This means our point per game scoring range is -3 to +12.


Playoff Week #1

Saturday, 23 February

ECAC:
#8 Southern Maine @ #1 Norwich
#7 Univ. New England @ #2 UMass-Boston
#6 Skidmore @ #3 Babson
#5 New England Coll. @ #4 Castleton

NESCAC:
#8 Hamilton @ #1 Bowdoin
#7 Colby @ #2 Williams
#6 Wesleyan @ #3 Trinity
#5 Middlebury @ #4 Amherst


NE-10:
#4 Stonehill @ #1 St. Anselm




**Unless I'm horribly wrong: In the event of a St. Anselm win or a tie on 2/19, the first game will be played. In the event of a Stonehill win, the second game will be played. If picking before this game is complete, you may pick BOTH possible combinations and your pick will be valid. I will remove this incorrect match-up from this post after the game.

I've update the schedule to reflect the pairings based on the Trinity win tonight. Only thing left to be determined is whether Stonehill will be visiting St. Anselm, or vice-versa. That will be answered tomorrow evening.

Nate, are you sure about the NE match ups? Shouldn't St. Mikes be in there?

Never Mind, went to the official site. That's a weird league set up - why wouldn't the have a six team playoff like they always have in the past?

They had the 4 last year too, I believe.

But the standings there are bizarre, to say the least. Incredibly unbalanced. (For those who don't know, each team other than St. Anselm and St. Mike's plays 3 games, with the winner of the series getting 2 pts - they split the points if they go 1-1-1 or 0-0-3. Then everybody plays St. Anselm and St. Mike's ONCE. The first ECAC-E match between the Saints counts as their one game. Those individual games are worth 2 pts themselves... and that's where they get the standings.)

Yes, it is one half-***** set up!
