Okay, the regular season has ended, and now we enter the "second season": the Playoffs.
The top 8 participants qualify for the Divisional Semi-final games. They are:
(As usual, the full standings are posted here.)
Everyone is welcome to make picks for these games, but only these people will have their picks entered.
Make your picks as you normally would. But there are a few differences between the regular season and the playoffs, so you should continue to read.
DEADLINE FOR MAKING/CHANGING PICKS IS MIDNIGHT FRIDAY NIGHT!!! Anyone who hasn't made picks by that time will have a 0-0 record for the week.
On Saturday, I will post (in this thread) which people get which teams. Unlike previous seasons, I will only change your picks if four higher-ranked participants pick BOTH the same teams you do. That should increase the likelihood that you'll get the teams you want, so please pick the teams you want, not the ones you think you'll get.
Though you may have your picks reassigned, I will not assign teams to people who did not make picks.
Unlike the regular season, someone who goes 0-2 will be ranked higher than someone who goes 0-0. So MAKE YOUR PICKS.
At the end of the week, you will be ranked according to how many correct picks you made this week. The regular-season standings will be used as a tie-breaker.
The top FOUR participants qualify for the Divisional Finals.
The complete rules are posted here. (Note that these are last year's rules, but apart from the change in reassigning picks that I mentioned above, all the rest is still the same.)
Here are the games for the Divisional Semi-Finals:
Toronto @ Hamilton
B.C. @ Saskatchewan
