With the NHL season finally under wraps, it is my pleasure to bring back one of the best games out there - the Cyber Cup! For those of you who weren't around last year, we just make our picks each round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs for who we think is going to advance in each series. Most accurate guy wins.

However, not everyone makes it past every round. We look to cut around 50 percent or so each round. For now, we'll say you need to make five correct picks to advance. Keep in mind that this is a cumulative thing, so this round is technically the most important!

And for those guys who don't make the cut, feel free to keep on going anyhow just to see how you would have stacked up. I'll stop rambling now and open the floor to you all. To enter, simply post your picks for each series (check here to see who's playing who: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=417945)

Deadline for posting / changing is before 7:00 Wednesday.

Reeder, you can not edit your picks in the middle of a round. I have your picks saved on my computer as Boston, Washington, New Jersey, Philadelphia, San Jose, Columbus, St. Louis and Chicago. Those are the ones that stand as your picks for this round.

EDIT: Slozo and ThorntonisTHEMAN, you have until 9:00 tonight to get your picks in! You made it this far - don't eliminate yourselves by being late!!

Wow. So while both the defending champs and the runners up from last year move on (Det, Pit), your reigning Cyber Cup Champ is out after one round. After going 4 for 4 to start off, I watched San Jose choke, New York blow a 3-1 lead, and New Jersey get scored on twice in the last 80 seconds of game seven. Oh well, that's the way the cookie crumbles. In any case, here are the guys who are moving on to round two, and their points so far:

umteman - 7
Slozo - 6
Sensfan101 - 5
ThorntonisTHEMAN - 5
Thrasher17 - 5
Bozonator - 5
pensfan17 - 5

Well I did quite good; seven of eight aint bad. Darn Sharks disappointed me by bucking their tradition of losing in the second round. In round two we get to see Washington vs. Pittsburgh with the assurance of seeing either Crosby or Ovechkin in the conference final.
So here are my round two picks:

Boston vs. Carolina - Boston
Washington vs. Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh
Detroit vs. Anaheim - Detroit
Chicago vs. Vancouver - Chicago

I submitted this in the first two minutes of the game between Van and Chi, with no score . . . hope that's ok. My excuse is a crying baby daughter, and being taxi driver all evening for the family! And rain, traffic, etc . . . did I mention a crying baby?

Standings:
umteman -10
Thrasher17 -8
Bozonator-8
pensfan17-7
Sensfan101-6
Slozo-6

Everyone moves on. Good luck to all.
For next round, you need at least 7 total points to move on. (For this round, it was 6.)

There's only three rounds left so Slozo and Sensfans have 6, so there's no way they can catch up to umteman. So is there still a point or not, like after this round even if i have 8, there's no way I can catch up if umteman if he gets it right. Do you understand me?

I don't want to eliminate anyone based on one player, because last year we had the leading guy dropout. Not that I'm expecting the same with umteman, but just because everyone else is so close, I'm not knocking anyone out just yet.

Oh man! :( what a really lousy time for my computer to crash.... I apologize for not being able to get my picks in for the previous round (although I would've guessed both Eastern teams wrong). Anyways, I wish everyone who is still in good luck! I'll get you next year!
