If the Ducks Win...

During the NHL playoffs, you may have noticed a new link in the main menu for this site. Playoff Pool is for those who drafted with us in early April, an annual tradition that started in the late 90s. I participate every year, and I've never won.

Considering we sometimes only have 10 or 11 participants, it's no easy task to lose almost 20 times in a row. I've had to bank on great regular season teams that faltered in the playoffs. I think I went to the San Jose Sharks well over and over and over again.

This year, I thought the Ducks were the team to beat. I loaded up on productive Ducks, and a few Minnesota Wild players, because I thought they'd upset the Blues in the first round. So far, I've played it perfectly.

If the Ducks eliminate Chicago, I'll win big. They're one win away...

We have a pool at home, just the four of us. Pick two teams from the east and two from the west. I'm happy to say I'm CRUSHING the wife and kids.
Gotta celebrate the small victories. :)

I did finish second back in 2011, for what that's worth: http://www.torontomike.com/2011hockeypool.html

By no means do I think the Ducks have it in the bag, it's just that if they win, I can't be caught.

Go Ducks!

I can't win it tonight, but I can make it so I can't realistically be caught. A whopping $220!

Go Hawks! :P
lol My Habs are out, never was a Lightning or Ranger fan although I hope the Rangers win that series, and as for the Ducks...well...both Saku Koivu and Timu Selanne are gone, if they were still there I would definitely be cheering them on though.
