Hey all BleacherReport hockey fans.  I was thinking about running an NHL wide playoff pool.  Here is how things will work:

We will go round by round, so I only need your round 1 picks for both conferences.  Depending on the amount of people that join in I will remove the bottom ranked people after each round with the lowest points.  The Stanley Cup round will come down to the Top 5 people and ties.

You will guess the winner of each match-up and get 1 point for each correct pick. Also you will pick the amount of games the series will go.  If you get the games correct you will also get another point (total games correctly picked will get point even if series winner is wrong).

So if you feel up to the challenge, and want to have some fun this playoff season.  Send me a post on my page with your round 1 picks and total games of the series.  I will then keep track and update the series and points leaders as the playoffs roll through.

Thanks and hope to see your posts.  Also let one of the teams pages have bragging rights for having a writer win the whole things.
