Looking back at our preseason picks

In the East we predicted 5 out of the 8 playoff teams. Not many chose Montreal to make it, but we did. Also, we said that Philadelphia and Washington would just fall short; so even the ones we missed weren't off by that much. The huge gaffe was having the worst team in the East (Tampa) winning their division.

In the West we predicted 7 out of the 8 playoffs teams; the only mistake was saying Vancouver would win their division, and we omitted the #8 seed Nashville from post-season play.

Overall, not too bad. We only batted .500 in picking division winners (Pittsburgh, San Jose and Detroit) which is a measure to how wide open and competitive some of the battles were all the way down to the wire.
