It's almost that time again! 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 nobody 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 later rounds.

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

Here's a link to last year's pool thread -- anyone remember who finished first?

EDIT: here is the link to the spreadsheet with everyone's picks -- good luck to all (especially me):

Bragging rights for an entire year. And you can't put a price tag on that.

2nd place gets squat. If you're not first, you're last.

OK, all the matchups have been decided. Here are the series (home team, in bold, listed second):

East
NYR @ WAS
BUF @ PHI
MTL @ BOS
TBL @ PIT

West
CHI @ VAN
LAK @ SJS
PHX @ DET
NAS @ ANA

When sending me your picks, please try to use the above order, and simply state the three-letters representing the team, followed by a number. For example: PHI4 would indicate Philadelphia sweeping their series with Buffalo.

The picks must be in my Inbox by puck drop on the night of the first game of the round, which will be Wednesday night, April 13, at 7:05-ish PM.

Yeah, I was just coming here to correct that. I forget what site I was at but it was one of the mainstream ones (like TSN). Maybe I mis-read; maybe they meant the *East* playoffs start on Thursday.

Nope, not even that. I don't know what the heck it was. They were talking about the Habs/Bruins series (which *does* start Thursday) but they were talking about it like was the start of the playoffs.

Whatever. It's been fixed up now.

I won the inaugural bracket pool. Does that count for anything?
