I've set up a league on the NHL.com Bracket Challenge for readers of DefendingBigD. We did this last year and had a really great turn out, so I figured we could do it again this year to make the playoffs a little more interesting and give us (at least a little) something to root for. It's pretty straight forward, you just pick the winner of each series and predict the number of games each series will go to. I'll be sure to put updates here on the standings after each round is complete and also remind everybody to make their picks for the next round.
If you'd like to join (and I hope that you do), here is the link and info:
