    Hey Gents,

    The playoff pool returns again this year, making it the 4th annual.

    Get your pools in pronto because you will not have much time to do it. In order to start the playoffs promptly, you will have about 3 days to get it in!

    Here are the Rules:

    1. All General Managers are to submit their bracket to me at [email protected] by Friday, April 29 at 11:59 p.m EST. All submissions should contain the message title "HFNHL Playoff Pool Bracket - General Manager Name"
    2. Their will be no fee to participate in order to encourage maximum participation. However there will be a prize. The prize will be $1,000,000 inserted into your team's finances.
    3. Remember that when you are doing your team selections, in the next round the lowest seed will always play the highest seed
    4. Scoring for Team predictions is as follows…
    1 Point for first round
    2 Points for second round
    3 Points for third round
    5 Points for Stanley Cup Winner
    5. As a tie breaker please include the number of games in total the Stanley Cup winning team will play (somewhere between 16-28)

    I've attached the bracket as a JPEG and as a Word document.

    Also, thought I'd add that Matt Kowalchuk has won this thing two years in a row. Let's not let him win again folks. ;)

    Picks sent. A somewhat surprising bracket in the West for me.

    If Kowalchuk wins again, when he's the second seeded Eastern Conference team, that's some weird karma thing going on. It's easy to do these when you don't have to select your own team to win or lose.

    That won't work - he's losing to Columbus in 7, didn't you get the memo? ;)

    Reminder that these are due tonight.

    The above list is now updated with who I've received from.

    Still nothing from the defending playoff pool champ (two times running).
