Only Jets and VGH, as I did in 1st Rd.  Thinking with my heart with VGH.

Damn, nobody’s in on the Jets but Valek and me! I’m all in on the Jets, not least bkz this is a copycat league and they “did it right” and are awesome now.

Also, I just want to see what Liane does with the Cup.

Steve in SF, about a month ago I picked Tampa/Nashville for the SCF, so I can’t change now but thought long and hard about doing it.

No, you stay with your initial gut! I’ve been all in on Winnipeg since about February.
But that series is going to be epic, if the reg season past is prelude…

Nobody giving Sharkie a chance, either…

First round 6-2… took a flier on the Devils, and the Ducks didn’t fly either.

2nd RD

Jets in 7 (although a bit worried about their injuries)
Sharks in 6
Tampa in 7
Caps in 7, no, Pens in 7… *flips coin* Caps in 7

Well 6-2 for me in the 1st round.  I had Toronto (which was foolish) and LA (which is still surprising) winning. 

Tampa in 7
Pittsburgh in 6
Nashville in 7
Sharks in 7

I’m really curious about Tampa/Boston.  That’s an interesting matchup…could easily go either way.

Same here, also had Toronto and LA as winners. And I guessed the winner in the correct amount of games in 4 series out of 6 I got the winner right.

This round.

Tampa in 5
Caps in 6
Nashville in 6
Sharks in 6
