So the coaches and media have spoken. Now is your chance to see if you are a better prognosticator than they are. Go Puckman is the defending champion in the contest. The contest is easy. Pick the ECAC Standings at the end of the 2013-2014 season in order from 1-12 (no ties). Playoff seedings determine the position of the teams incase of a regular season tie. You accumulate points based on the difference squared of the position you pick for each team vs the teams actual finish. If you pick RPI first and they finish first you accumulate 0 points. If they finish 2nd, you accumulate 1 point, 3rd 4 points, 4th 9 points etc. LOWEST SCORE IS THE WINNER . You have until the puck drops on the first League Game Harvard Vs RPI on Tuesday Oct 29th to get your picks in.

Tie breakers are:

Pick correctly the ECACHL Regular Season Champ.
Have the most teams in the correct order of finish.
Have the most top 6 teams in the correct order of finish.
I will flip a coin .

You can change your picks at any time up till the drop of the puck of the first league game, however DO NOT EDIT THE ORIGINAL PICKS . Just put up a new post with your change.

The Media.

1. Rensselaer (18) - 367
2. Yale (5) - 224
3. Quinnipiac (6) - 292
4. Union (3) - 287
5. Cornell (1) - 238
6. Dartmouth - 238 Cornell's one First Place Vote gives it the nod for 5th :)
7. St. Lawrence - 212
8. Brown - 188
9. Colgate - 125
10. Harvard - 108
11. Princeton - 102

And both are doomed to finish way back in the pack due to their lack of respect for a certain 12th place team ;) .
