The regular season is now over, and the playoffs are beginning. The regular season standings are posted here.
The top 8 qualify for the post-season. They are:
- 3rd and goal
Everyone is encouraged to make picks, but only these 8 will have their picks count. HOWEVER, if any of them fail to get their picks in on time, the next-highest ranked participant will squeak into the playoffs. So if you're even close, you're best to make your picks.
PICKS MUST BE IN BY MIDNIGHT FRIDAY NIGHT. That is a hard deadline, just like always. You can make or change your picks up until that deadline. On Saturday, I will post who picked which teams. Please check it and correct me if there are any errors PRIOR to the scheduled kickoff time; otherwise, your picks will stand as I have them.
(For those who have been doing this for a while, keep in mind that there is no longer any limit to the number of people who can pick each team.)
After the games, participants will be ranked based on how many games they got correct this week, with ties broken based on their regular-season standings. The top 4 will qualify for the Divisional Finals.
The complete rules are posted here.
Now on to the Divisional Semi-finals. Hamilton and Calgary have the bye this week.
B.C. @ Montreal
Saskatchewan @ Edmonton
