NHL bracket pool

Yes, this is a little late, but seeing James Mirtle's playoff bracket yesterday inspired me to create my own. Unfortunately, it's nowhere near as pretty, but it's functional. If you're interested in joining my bracket pool for fun, just go to Simply Sports Ware; the pool name is SportingMadness and the password is Sporting. The pick deadline is Friday night at 7 p.m.; that will allow picks to be made after one game in every series has been played. Let's see who comes out on top! Here's my picks:

Round One:

-Vancouver over St. Louis in six games.
- Anaheim over San Jose in seven games
- Detroit over Columbus in six games
- Chicago over Calgary in five games

-Boston over Montreal in five games
-Washington over New York in six games
-Carolina over New Jersey in six games
-Pittsburgh over Philadelphia in six games

Round Two:
- Vancouver over Chicago in five games
- Anaheim over Detroit in six games

- Boston over Carolina in six games
- Washington over Pittsburgh in seven games

Round Three:
- Vancouver over Anaheim in six games
- Boston over Washington in six games

Stanley Cup Final:
- Vancouver over Boston in seven games

Thoughts? Criticisms? Post them in the comments below. There's some reasonably bold picks here, so we'll see how it works out.

Oh, and the scoring system's included in the pool rules. Basically, you get points if you pick the right team to win the series, and you then get more points depending on how close you were to the correct number of games. Point values increase as the rounds go on.

    you are mistaken, there is no way Boston will lose to Vancouver
