    I'm posting this to see if there is any interest in doing this again. I ran this same contest successfully for the 2008 season, and we had a great time. We're a little over a month from playoff time, so I wanted to gauge interest.

    The 2008 contest can be found here: http://www.cigarpass.....20 cup&st=140

    The format is as follows:

    The idea is to have a good time rooting for teams, and to win a few sticks when it's all said and done.

    Once the 16 NHL playoff teams are determined, teams will be assigned by a blind draw.

    The stake for the game is 2 premium sticks, and payout would be 24 sticks to the player that chooses the Stanley Cup champ, and 8 to the player drawing the team that makes it to the final series, but loses.

    16 players total, and payout order is:

    16. Sends to 2.
    15. Sends to 2.
    14. Sends to 2.
    13.Sends to 1.
    12.Sends to 1.
    11.Sends to 1.
    10.Sends to 1.
    9.Sends to 1.
    8.Sends to 1.
    7.Sends to 1.
    6.Sends to 1.
    5.Sends to 1.
    4.Sends to 1.
    3.Sends to 1.
    2. Receives 6 sticks, keeps his 2 sticks = 8
    1. Receives 22 sticks, keeps his 2 = 24


    Side betting is allowed between the players facing off in each round.
    Please post here if interested. First 15 (since I'm playing) will be accepted.


    Players and Teams are as follows:

    1. Yojimbo - New York Rangers
    2. BlackCloud - Washington Capitols
    3. Thefatguy - Los Angeles Kings

    Count me in, but please rig the drawing so I get my Pens. :D

    Crosby is going to come back, and we are going to be the team to beat.

    Sure hope I am not eating my words in May...............

    I'm in, sorry I didn't see this before!

    Last night I watched the Av/Wild game I DVR'd and man what an embarrassment that was 7-1 Avs!

    I still have to watch the Kings/Predators game from Tuesday that I DVR'd and later the Kings/BlueJackets game on tonight.
