Hottest NHLers

With the shortened NHL season about to start, I thought I'd spice it up with a hottest NHLer contest on twitter. I'm gonna start with  Cosmo's hottest NHLer list.
http://www.cosmopolitan.com/celebrity/exclusive/hot-hockey-players-2012

I'm gonna use stats on Talk-Sports.com to rank the players from 1-30. The top 2 will get byes. The 3rd place will face the 30th, 4th v 29th, etc. Each round, the players will be reseeded, with highest original seed against lowest. There will be 3 initial one-day rounds over 27 plus days (I may miss a day here and there). Once we get to the semis, then both voting period will take place over two days. The finals voting will take place over an entire week.

The 1st day will be 15th v 16th. I'll provide twitter tags for both players. The player who receives the most tweets with his tag every day will move onto the next round. For example, the tag for voting for Randy Morin would be #RandyMorinHottestNHLer, but only tweets during the voting period will cound. You can vote as many times as you want, just be careful not to get yourself banned by twitter.

I'll provide the initial seedings later today.
