    You might still get be able to get the Wings. I'm working diligently with high level engineers at MIT to develop a formula to assign the teams in a fair manner based on some sort of variable, especially considering that it seems everyone's first choice is in the West...

    We just have two more spots to fill. If you're up for it, go ahead and post your preferred teams and we'll see how it works out.

    Just to clarify my first choice isn't the Western team(Flames) just picked them cause it was the first one to come to mind. Give me either one and I'll be fine.

    KOPI!, you're in. I gave you the Canucks.

    I decided I'd set the tournament up based on our rankings on Xbox Live, which are:

    As of 1/25/08 10:00am

    OrangePuck 19th
    KingsNate 37th
    ASUcruz 42nd
    Watti 56th
    gokings71 64th
    Cross Traffic 66th
    spjon25 67th
    KOPI! PEVS! 75th


    I then plugged everyone into the following tournament tree, which is similar to the one used in tennis to give the top ranked players the best draw:



    Again, this is a disturbingly precise formula developed by the highest minds at MIT, so no complaints. It's as fair as I could get it.

    I'll post a link to the official tournament thread here in a bit.

    I'm ready to start today, and I'll PM everybody with a reminder and let you know what team you got and who your first series will be against.

    Didn't even know I had a ranking. Wouldn't have thought I was the third ranked guy either.

    Nice job setting everything up!
