    There are two elements.
    1) Fill out your bracket now - the winner of each series plus the # of games it will take - right up to the cup champion. Pick a conn smythe winner.
    5 points for a correct choice.
    1 bonus point for the #of games (if you pick the right winner)
    5 bonus points for picking the cup winner.
    5 points for the Conn Smythe winner.

    2) Pick as you go. Behind after round 1? You can fight your way back. Ahead and confident? Double down.
    In round two, select winners and the # of games.
    In round 3, select winners and # of games.
    In the finals, select the winner and # of games. Select a conn smythe winner.
    5 points for a winner.
    1 point for # of games (only if you pick the right winner).
    5 points for the Conn Smythe winner.

    Uhh sure ...

    Round 2
    TBL 2 - 4 BOS Boston's special teams counter Tampa's biggest strength which is the PP.
    CBJ 4 - 3 PHI It'll take a strong defensive team to beat the Jackets this year.

    NSH 4 - 2 WPG It'll be a really close series, I think, but the experience from last year will help NSH.
    SJS 3 - 4 LAK Close and unpredictable. I still think the Sharks are a bunch of chokers, though.

    Conf. Finals
    BOS 4 - 2 CBJ The Bruins are just better all around.
    NSH 4 - 3 LAK LA runs out of gas after two hard series.

    Cup Final
    NSH 3 - 4 BOS The two best regular season teams duking it out. I picked Boston because I like them more. Plus Rinne may have another meltdown.

    I think Vasilevsky being tired and Stamkos' injury will prevent them from winning the cup, even though I think they are the best team in the league when 100% healthy. The real eastern conference finals will be Boston vs Tampa in round 2 and the real western conference finals will be Nashville vs Winnipeg in round 2 as well.

    They're an easy favorite. They have strong depth at every position. It is possible that the Jets or Golden Knights beat them.

    Didn't even realize everyone did this as I made mine without looking through everyone else's. Sorry for breaking the streak. I think the Jets can take them as last year's long season catches up with the Preds.

    So I'm just gonna pick my preferences and see how it goes. You don't have to give me a trophy since I'm starting late.

    Tampa over NJ - haven't really developed any hate for Tampa somehow, so might as well cheer for Stevie
    Boston over Toronto - i always kinda liked Boston as a second favorite. Also, **** Toronto.
    Columbus over Washington - they're my local team now, might as well embrace it
    Philly over Pittsburgh - because obviously **** Pittsburgh
    Nashville over Colorado - i like Nashville and have family there
    Winnipeg over Minnesota - don't care
    Vegas over LA - best story of the season
    Anaheim over SJ - eh, screw both those teams

    _------------
    Round 2
    Nashville over Winnipeg
    Vegas over Anaheim
    Boston over Tampa
    Columbus over Philly
    ---------------------
    Conference finalss
    Vegas over Nashville
    Columbus over Boston
    ---------------------------
    Finals
    Vegas over Columbus
    Karlsson Conn Smythe


    Some of that's probably out of order or something. Maybe I'll fix it later.

    Capitals over Pittsburgh in 7 (This series kills me every year)
    Predators over Jets in 7
    Boston over Tampa in 7
    Sharks over Vegans in 6 (Vegas kills me all the time)

    What a ****ing great 2nd round.
    3 awesome series.
    Don't really care about Vegas-Sharks.

    Funny that hardly anyone got Vegas or Sharks right in round 1.
