Round 1 Predictions: How Did We Do?

Well now that Round 1 has been over for what seems like 5 years, and Round 2 starts tonight, we figured we'd take a look back to our prediction brackets and see how we are fairing thus far.

Vance's Bracket

So over in the West, Vance goes a dismal 1/4 missing out on Calgary upsetting Chicago, which many probably didn't see as much as an upset but Chicago did away with Calgary with relative ease. We'll give him a break missing the Sharks because I'm sure 95% of people missed that one...but then we have to make fun of his EPIC FAIL pick of St. Louis over the Canucks. St. Louis was that feel good team though, and I'm sure had Vance been right, we'd never hear the end of it. You showed some balls sir.

Vance made up for his EPIC FAIL, however, by going 4/4 in the East. Good for you my friend. Here's a pat on the back. I almost got you with that Rangers pick too. Damn.

Vance goes a combined 5/8. Tear.

On to mine (Denson):

I, like Vance, also missed out on the Sharks pick, but nobody really cares about that because you readers missed it too. You know you did, dont't lie to yourself. But that totally F'd me since I *GASP!!!, went against my hometown team and had the Sharks beating the Pens in the finals. Ah well, 3/4 in the West isn't too shaby.

The East pisses me off. I was O so close to having that Rangers upset pick correct.

Again, 3/4. Pretty surprising both Vance and I took the Canes the beat the Devils, but they were playing some amazing hockey...and look at Eric Staal, finally scoring against good teams! Touche my friend. Touche.

So in the end I one-upped Vance going 6/8...but in the grand scheme of things, I'm screwed. More Onus Seed updates to come...Vance is getting all pissy.
