Welcome wmichskers! Thanks for stopping by and GO LAKERS! Wooo! ber Whoops, looks like you missed a couple questions in the Oilers/Sharks series (I'm PM'ing you).

11 in so far, not bad!

I have decided to extend the deadline for entering your Round 1 picks until Friday, April 14 at 7 PM EST. This is the puck drop of Game 2 for two of the series. This will hopefully give a couple more stragglers time to find us and join up.

Also, when I get a chance I will be compiling everyone's picks in a spreadsheet and I intend to share it (or at least a screenshot of it) here. That will help you compare your picks side by side with those of the other contestants.

You also picked one of the props for Hawks-Preds as a tie. If it does indeed end in a tie I will be throwing the question out as stated in the OP on page 1, so I'd advise that you update that pick as well.

But yeah everything else looks good. Thanks for playing! ber

I'll roll with my tie. Same points as everyone who picked when they tie. It's an intimidation tactic letting Larry know I'm on my game!

Only picker to take the Leafs, not surprised.  Looked like a genius early in the 1st period..now we'll have to sweat it out.  OT.
Don't give up.  Don't ever give up.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.

Tom Wilson! Would have been my last player picked to score a game winner.
How bout Justin Williams? That's why we traded for him last year. So clutch in the playoffs.

Also, Coach pointed out to me that one of the prop questions is already decided. In the Oilers-Sharks series, one of the prop questions I asked was "will there be any overtime games in the series?" It turned out that Game 1 of that series went to overtime. Because that occurred before all of our twelve contestants had made picks, I am throwing that question out.

Picks are now locked for Round 1. 12 participants - not bad!

As promised, here is a screenshot showing all of your picks in table form. This is from my spreadsheet that I will also use to automatically calculate the scores.

Click on the images to make them bigger. There are two screenshots, one for Round 1 and one for the overall playoff bonus questions. Note that the picks are automatically calculated as "incorrect" since the correct picks have not yet been determined.
