I've never participated in a pool like this so I struggled with a strategy. Do I put all my eggs in two baskets, so to speak, and fill my roster with the teams I think will make it to the Cup Finals? Of course if you miss on those picks then you are done. Or do you really spread your picks between a lot of teams, in which case you might score points early, but then lose your roster a little bit each round. I mainly chose by the latter strategy I think.

3 people from 643 have still not paid for their teams in the pool, so if you guys could send me the cash that would be great, thanks

Hey I think I won, lol. But I sure didn't score many points in the last two rounds. Of the final four teams, 1 Devil on my roster, 1 Coyote on my roster, and zero Kings (my apologies).

After the first round I really started analyzing and questioning my roster - when I picked I just went through each box of 5 players and picked who I thought would score the most. Which left me with a way unbalanced roster with 18 of my 27 players from the Eastern Conference - lots of Flyers, Penguins, Rangers. It worked this year, but barely. Last two rounds it was just me watching everyone catch up, and seeing if I could hold the lead against people with rosters with fair representation from LAK, PHO, and NJD.

Thanks for setting up the pool, Subterfuge!
