IDIOTS, it's meaningless pool time again.

This time it's the NHL playoffs. Rules are simple.

Registration limited to 16 Idiots. Everyone picks a series winner and number of games. One point for getting the series winner right and a bonus point for also getting the number of games right.

Competition is head-to-head. I will randomly match up the Idiots against one another and the winner will advance. Each round will have a tie-breaker question that I will decide on.

First 15 people (that I like) to respond in the comments or via twitter DM are in. There's only one spot for a person I don't like and it's already taken.

Tiebreaker question is total number of goals scored in the first round. Closest guess wins if an overall tie.

Good luck, Idiots.
