Good job, tahoe! If I remember correctly, this is not your first time winning

I pulled off a NFL Playoff pick-em a few years back--by picking the Eagles to prevail over the mighty Pats. Got myself a sweet-ass set of Bengals-hued Zubaz pants that I still rock to this very day when I want the wife to get reeeeeaaaaalllllyyy turned on.

But since hockey is far more important to me, I'm a whole lot prouder about this victory. It'll be better next year when I repeat by riding the Dougie Hamilton-led Devils all the way to the crown (I can dream, right?)

rcade--you're the bomb for running these pick 'ems. I sure wish we could get people to get back to posting on more than the pick-em threads, though.

Umm, where's my picks? LOL (I sent you an email prior to the start of the finals with my picks).

Nicely done, tahoemoj. While I didn't enter this year (playoffs come during the middle school baseball season, and I am pushed for time then), I still followed the progress. Good on rcade for doing this, and good on all the players for being there.

Congrats Tahoe.

Winning the regular season pool and getting the Costanza in the playoffs feels like the most Canucks fan thing ever.
