Yeah I can't believe it, talk about a choke job. I had the Blues in 7, thought Miller would be the difference maker. But Chicago woke up big time

I think on the verge may be overselling it, as there's only 3 series decided so far.

shush, the only series I got right in # of GMS is Chicago. Only other one I can win is NYR in 6. Everything else I was off by a game

As long as you guess the teams right you still got some bragging rights

I need an Avs/Pens/Rangers win in game 6, and need Stars in 7 and the Sharks to win in 7.

I picked an Anaheim sweep. That one isn't going well.

I think the 1st and 2nd rounds of the playoffs should be shortened to five games.

Disagree strongly.

I hate the idea of the playoffs being even more random than now.

NFL and soccer with 1 and 2 game playoffs is random. A 5 game series certainly is not.

Only one seed below 6 has ever won the cup, the current format gets the best teams winning.

For me, we take too long to get to the big stuff. By round 3, most casual fans have lost interest.

I like being able to say that the Stanley Cup is the hardest trophy in sports to win.

And if casual fans lose interest by the time we get to the good stuff... then they are less than even casual fans.

I predicted Boston in 5 and Chicago in 6 so racking up some points now after totally missing the Bolts-Habs outcome

It's not a one-game series, but the shorter the series is, the more random it is

I picked the Ducks in 6 woohoo. 43 points. I also have the Rangers in 6. Here's hoping.

My homer bracket is doing extremely well. I think I have a great shot at getting the entire first round right.

Why doesn't anybody believe in the Hawks going to the SCF again? Seeing lots of Ducks.

I picked Ducks over Stars in 6. That helped bump me up a bit.

Ugh. Thought I was Matt F (also my last name) and thought I was chilling near the top of the leaderboard.

Then I realized my entry was Matt4776 and I'm almost dead last.

Nice tiebreaker. I guess we're going to sweep the ducks and shut them out each game.
