It's going to be a little different this year...and maybe better.
We're going through NHL.com's Bracket Challenge contest. This way, you guys won't have to wait on me for results.
The setup is different. I believe you pick like you do for the NCAA tournament. Everything all at once at the beginning. So you set it, and forget it. This will also be good for those that play, but forget to submit picks every round.
And, most importantly, it's much easier for me. Register & Join League:
