OK, it's nearly time. The format will be the same as last year:

1. Every round, for each series, you pick a winner and the number of games. You don't have to pick all the rounds at once.
2. You start off with 4 points just because. You then get 2 points for each correct outcome (winner) you picked in round one, plus a bonus point if you not only picked the winner, but also the correct number of games.
3. Each round the points double, so in round 2 you get 4 points for predicting the winner and 2 bonus points if you also picked the number of games.
4. Picks are due by puck-drop of the earliest game in each round. If you do not get your picks in on time I will pick the home team in 7 on your behalf.

So each round carries a possible 24 points, and the four rounds plus the gimme points (I used to call them "ante up" when I ran it as a money pool -- you got 4 points when you paid in) add up to a possible 100 points.

The beauty of this set us is that no-body gets eliminated early on (like I did that one and only time I played a March Madness pool and my two picks for the Finals were done in the first two rounds). It also makes for some interesting "Hail Mary" picks in the latter rounds.

Feel free to PM me if you want in. I'll send out a mass-PM when it gets closer to the playoffs.

EDIT: Here is the link to the pool spreadsheet. It will be updated prior to the start of each round:

I'm compiling everyone into a group list. The group name is "Brackets" and you can use it in PMs.
