Round 2 picks sent.

Why do we have to be the Red Team? There's nothing good about red in hockey.

Except blood. Maybe we can be Team Blood.

2 pts. for picking the winner of a series. 1 pt for picking the # of games, IF, you correctly picked the winner of that series.
Let me know if anyone sees any errors.
Thanks.

Leaders through the first round:

TEAMS:
1) Team Aqua (70 pts.)
2) Team Dark Red (68 pts.)
3) Team Pale Blue (64 pts.)

INDIVIDUALS:
1) BF44 (18 pts.)
ibldbl (18 pts.)
2) Lawnmower (17 pts.)
Sec310K67 (17 pts.)
3) bluz89 (16 pts.)
SamJunior (16 pts.)
kanucklehead (16 pts.)
F Keenan (16 pts.)


Didn't the Anaheim/San Jose series only go 6 games? Looks like you had it going 7 ...


You are correct...thank you.
I have adjusted the standings and the spreadsheet.



Not to nitpick or anything but if my math is Correct Sec310k67 should be alone in first with 18, and a 3-way tie for 2nd between lawnmower, ibldbl, and BF44.
If i am wrong sorry about this but i did this twice and both times came up with the same thing.
Thanks!

I'm in!

Doesn't look like the spreadsheet is updated with Washington's and Carolina's results?

(As in... I've only got 5 damn points and I should have 10!)

I was wondering the same thing, because I did not get a confirmation email, but I sent my picks yesterday.

Wow - I've got more points than Melrose and Buccigross ... well, on second thought, I guess that isn't saying much -
:P

The Coin predicts...

Boston in 7
Pittsburgh in 7
Anaheim in 6
Vancouver in 6

The coin seems to have a bias toward long series.

So wait, even if you get the winner of the series wrong, you still get a point if you guess the number of games correctly? That seems somewhat dumb.

By the way, the Coin completely ****ed up the first round and only got 1 series in 8 correctly. Ouch.

I hope it's just as bad this round, because I don't like it's picks.

That looks oddly similar to my picks with only one difference - took Caps over Pens, but that one could easily go either way.
