What should I do, post my picks here or PM them to someone?
To keep your picks hidden, you can PM to me (ComptrBob). I will post them tonight. Of course, you have the option to post them here.

Reminder of deadline: The Vegas/Dallas series starts tonight (Sunday, Sept 6) with the broadcast scheduled for Game 1 at 5:00PM (PT). Actual start of the game will be about 5:20PM.

Guess I gotta pick upsets since I missed last round.
Dallas
NY Islanders

Wow that would be such an appropriate 2020 moment if those two teams played for the Cup.

I've got futures on Dallas and Vegas to win the Cup, I'm rooting for Dallas since the odds are higher, but either way I'll have a future in the finals

I think you just tipped your hand with that comment. :) My picks are in already but I don't think anyone makes that comment if they played Dallas in the contest instead of Vegas. Either way good luck. I'm right on your ass any way you look at it.

Does everyone agree this was the best way to handle the reseeding? By not reseeding, choosing the Isles with a 7 seed gives you a better chance to play catchup as opposed to them now being a 2 seed. Makes this more interesting in my opinion.

I'm not sure what you mean by tipping my hand, I'd like to see Dallas win since I have them at 14/1 and I have Vegas at 8/1, so Dallas winning gives me a higher potential payout, as far as this contest goes, I haven't been trying to employ any type of strategy, in fact I haven't even looked to see who everyone else it taking, I'm just picking the teams I think will win each series, if the winner was looking at a big pay day I'm sure I would have payed closer attention, but I've pretty much just been winging it, I think it would be funny If I win this thing since I probably know less about hockey than anyone who entered, before the playoffs I probably couldn't have named 5 players in the entire league, LOL, if you want I'll even tell you the two teams I picked, I'm just in this for the fun of it

Well, I tried to give away $100 but unless either or both teams have a reversal to form....looks like I may be in the driver's seat here.

TB leads series over NY Isles 3-1
Dallas leads series over Vegas 3-1

Dallas moves on to the finals.
What a stud team. Great job.

Tampa Bay tries to finish off the resilient Islanders tomorrow.

Setting up a fantastic final if TB can finish them off.

Well, for a minute during this game I thought my once secure situation had a reversal of fortune. TB sure took their time. Congrats to the Isles. Barry Trotz is one heck of a coach.

TB wins series over NY Isles 4-2
Dallas series over Vegas 4-1

Great hockey as always but just doesn't feel the same without the fans.

Stanley Cup Final.

Dallas 3 seed
Tampa Bay 1 seed

Need to get your pick in before puck drop Saturday at 7:30 est.

Good Luck

I'm uncatchable as far as I see it. If Dallas wins I gain 3 more points. If TB wins its only a 1 seed and I'm up by 2 so I think I'm keeping the $100 I tried to give away here.
