LAKE PLACID, N.Y. – Half of the schools received first-place votes, but Yale had the most and became the pre-season favorite – according to the coaches – to take the 2013-14 ECAC Hockey men's regular season championship. The poll was announced at today's conference media day event at the U.S. Olympic Training Center.

It's rare that you see the two poles (;)) differ this much. I'm more inclined to trust the coaches' judgment over that of the media, as the coaches see the players up close.
