My Penguins just made the playoffs (yikes that was close)! I was thinking that given all the Hockey fans we have here at M/S that a playoff pool might be fun.

I never do the NCAA pools because I don't know anything about basketball (and my Pitt always blows it anyway). I know a little more about Hockey!

The last regular season games are on April 12. I imagine that the playoffs would start April 16 or so. Here's a link to the current match ups (subject to change): http://www.nhl.com/standings/playoffmatchup20082009.html?navid=NAV|STN|Plyf

So, anyone interested?

Jim

Thanks for thinking of me Jim, but given that my team hasn't been blessed with a Stanley Cup since I was 10-11, I've forgotten how to root for the good guys. Unless of course we are talking about Team Canada versus Team USA, then its a no brainer! Eh? grin

Good luck with the others!

Jim

Mike,

the Ducks are still in the hunt for a playoff spot. 2 games left with 3 teams battling for the last 2 spots. The Kings are with my Mapleleafs dusting off the golf clubs.

Keep your fingers crossed

Thanks for the responses! Looks like we have enough guys to have a good competition. Hopefully more will join, pass the word!

Geeders (Jim): your team doesn't have to be playing to participate, but I understand if it rubs salt in the wound :-)

Trucker51 (Mark): OMG is that funny! I'm in tears! The Hanson brothers from Slapshot dubbed in French. Hilarious! That movie was filmed just an hour away in Johnstown, PA. My favorite line (referring to the Hanson brothers): "They brought their TOYS!" lol

Here's a promo video that gives me chills. There's actually a better one that includes the "Ice Bowl" from Buffalo, but I can't find it online: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uem2i0CDL04

And I can't resist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4-G-1G_oGY&feature=related

I'll look for a way we can do an electronic bracket. If anyone has ideas, please let me know!

Jim

Figured I'd throw it out there, some of us made picks in PM, if anyone else wants to join. We're not betting or anything, just for fun.
