I always suck at these, and looking at my bracket, that's unlikely to change this year. But I figured I'd make a league over at nhl.com, since no one else seems to have yet.

Brackets have to done by first round puck drop, I think.

I only went to create a bracket last night and saw that no one had made a thread yet.

You guys know anyone can create a league and a thread, right? I only did because no one else had when I looked. :)

EDIT: By the way, you (or anyone else) should still be able to join the league as long as you already made a bracket.

:lol: I was just messing, man. Its not something we always do so I didn't expect it TBH, or at least, its not something I saw in the past if you guys did do it. If I had it in mind, I gladly would've started one. Truthfully, I saw your post in time anyway, I just let myself get distracted when I meant to make the bracket.

Thanks for trying anyway and if anyone figures out a way to start a new bracket on another site that still lets you make them, that'd be cool too.

I can't believe I'm the only one who picked the Caps.

Ha, I know- I was at work on my phone and didn't have the patience to try to do it through the mobile website. I wasn't complaining and I hope it didn't come off that way!

Edit- I got into a 20 buy in at work and picked the blues to take it all and nobody else picked them to beat chicago....after they blew it in double ot I'm pretty sure it cost then the series. I would have been gone in this one too

'Hawks still have to win two in a row. That's still a tall order.

Given the Hawk's playoff history vs the Blue's, I'd omit tall from that statement. The Blues are 2 losses away from going down as far bigger playoff chokes than even the Sharks because of how routine 1st round failures have become for them. In their last 7 years, they've made 5 playoffs, with genuine SC aspirations 3 of those years. They lost in round 1 4/5 times by a combined deficit of 7 wins vs 16 losses. This will now be their 3rd year in a row with genuine SC hopes, and it's certainly not a reach to assume they will blow a 2nd and 3rd game in a row vs the defending cup champs. The Hawks are the opposite of the Blues, they play up in the playoffs down in the season, and at this point I'd say the Blues are the nervous ones because they surely realize what we do: The team that won't stop winning stanley cups is building steam against the team that can't stop choking in round 1.

Edit - Game 7 now after a Hawks route. In St Louis where Chicago is 2-1 so far.

Well, there goes my bracket. I'm always too daring with underdog picks, I know, but I really expected Florida to at least be able to get past the Islanders -- especially without Halak.

Hamster, can you please re-post the link - the one in your initial post doesn't seem to want to load and I never bookmarked it :(

Does this work better? (http://bracketchallenge.nhl.com/#/league/198467)

I'm really happy for the Blues. They're fun to watch and have been way too good to have no recent playoff success. It's odd seeing LA and Chicago gone already.

Looks like KneelBeforeZod took this this year since no one had the Pens or Sharks winning the Cup.
