Bonus! I asked my kids to complete brackets as well.
The four-year-old picked COL/WPG/LAK/SJ/NJ/BOS/CBJ/PHI; WPG/SJ/NJ/CBJ; SJ/CBJ; SJ. He picked 7 games for each series as it's his favourite number. Also the Sharks play in "Sannoway."
The two-year-old picked NSH/WPG/VGK/ANA/NJ/BOS/CBJ/PIT; NSH/ANA/NJ/CBJ; NSH/CBJ; CBJ. He didn't pick series lengths because he doesn't know what numbers are, really.

Score updates! Round 1 for me: 23 points. Round one for kid #1: 7 points.

Just a suggestion but maybe make a googledocs people can submit their guesses to and maybe make it easier for you?

Just FYI as a follow up, I donít think Iíll have time to set this up by Wednesday, especially since I just havenít used google forms and docs in quite a while.

Worst case is I just manually process this over a few days when I get back. I made a basic template, and i can plug in usernames over the course of an hour or two if need be.

MIND MIND MIND

NSH 4-0 COL
WPG 4-2 MIN
VGK 4-3 LAK
SJS 4-2 ANA

TBL 4-2 NJD
TOR 4-1 BOS
WSH 4-2 CBJ
PIT 4-2 PHI

NSH > WPG
SJS > VGK
TBL > TOR
PIT > WSH

SJS > NSH

Do I actually think SJ will win the cup? Probably not. I'm somewhat hopeful though (if the team gets and stays healthy-ish). It feels dirty to make a bracket that doesn't end with the team you've been rooting for your whole life winning the cup.

To clarify, that's 10 years after next year -- so 11 years in total of our goaltender being better than yours.

The columns are supposed to go from Team A in 4 to Team B in 4. It doesn't make sense to put Preds in 7 next to Aves in 4.

In all seriousness , I asked if anyone could post a previous example or template once or twice , didnít get it. Not a big deal, but Iím not going to change the format now.


Iíll continue to update on the spreadsheet, and Iíll post a ďfinalĒ screenshot on Wednesday night, or likely Thursday morning. Again, Iím kind of just typing this in as I go, so Any disputes are valid as long as The original post was before the first playoff game.

So anyone feeling like theyíre late, youíre not yet late.

I am on a small vacation, so if Iím late on Thursday, thatís why.

Also, Iím using google docs. How do I make the red X in google docs?
