Because I was bored, and the Cup playoffs obsess me, I did a little analysis of The-W's collective first round preditions.
Best Predictor - Dunkndollaz and Big Vito Mark both got 7/8 correct, Dunk missing Montreal, and BVM missing San Jose. Honorable mentions to The Goon, redsoxnation, Big Bad, Reverend J Shaft, and Net Hack Slasher, and ME! with 6/8.
Overall, The W predicted series at a 59.52% rate.
Most Predictable Series - 95.24% of predictors took Detroit.
Least Predictable Series - only 28.57% of us took Philly.
Other Unpredictable Result - only 35% of us took Colorado.
Other Percentages - 76.19% got Tampa correct, 71.43% took the Leafs, 61.9% took San Jose, 55% selected Calgary, and 52.17% picked Montreal to advance.
On to an amazing Round Two!

Well you guys won't like what Wil Wheaton wrote on twitter if you think Washington is too far south. He wants to see the LA Kings play a game at either the Rose Bowl or the Coliseum, as impossible as that seems.
