I've been busy lately, so I haven't had as much time to do these. Since the 1st round is long over, and the 2nd round is about to see its first elimination, it's about time I post these leaderboards before the numbers change!
What you will see below is the leaderboards for the end of the 1st round. If you don't remember who you picked, go to the side into the story stream, where all of this year's fantasy competition posts are grouped together.
First up is the team brackets competition:
|Rank||Participant||1st round (East)||1st round (West)||Current total|
Sean Larson has bragging rights over all of us, since he is the only one to correctly call ALL 8 winning teams in the 1st round. He did miss out on a few of those bonus points, though. Passive Voice got 7 of 8 teams correct, as well as a few more bonus points than Sean to come within a point of the lead. However, PV's next rounds are dependent on LA and the Habs, while Sean has a Hawks-Pens final matchup. BW79 tanked like heck, with only Pittsburgh winning their 1st round matchup in her bracket. She doesn't have them going any further, so she's likely to set competition history here for the lowest ever final point total.
Now the players competition:
It appears that the majority of you are cashing in on the Crosby-Malkin pairing, with the two of them earning a combined 20 points in the 1st round. Although team pinnelli was one of them, they pulled ahead of the pack with another 15 points between Datsyuk and Zetterberg. Passive Voice also had a Malkin-Datsyuk-Zetterberg grouping, although without Crosby, and pulled into 2nd by having 29 points between Hossa, Sharp, Chara and Lucic. Geordie Nuck is bombing hard, having only 2 players break the 5-point mark in the 1st round.
It's a little late for me to say good luck for the 2nd round, so I'll just say I'm "hoping" you're having good luck. (The "hope" is meant more as I am hoping I am beating you.)
