Cool, we have 8.
I don't think you're the only one... TooCool mentioned the same thing as well.

One thing that's nice is the games tend to go a lot quicker if you want them to. Less lag (not that there's too much with Be a Pro as it is) due to there only being two players, plus you don't need to wait for 10 people to hit a button to skip the cutscenes.
If anyone else is still interested, post here in case anyone else drops out. For now, I'll start getting the team selection process underway and build the tournament tree. We'll probably want to schedule a few practice games (ideally, one against each opponent, but that might be a lot to hope for).

I'm going to try and get the tournament thread and graphic up tonight. Let's see if we can get at least our first round completed by the end of next week 11/16 - 11/22 (again, 3 games max... shouldn't be too much to handle).
Once I have everything set up, I'll send a PM out to everyone.
EDIT: It's coming, I promise.

I arbitrarily decided to select the seeding based on our Xbox Live Leaderboard status.
Xbox Live Leaderboard
1 - Hexisland 39
2 - Watti 43
3 - Cross Traffic 62
4 - TooCool 87
5 - DieAvsDie 92
6 - luckyluc20 102
7 - Matt Young (not listed)
8 - KingTrekHead (not listed)
So the first round matchups are:
Hexisland vs. KingTrekHead
Watti vs. Matt Young
Cross Traffic vs. lucklyluc20
TooCool vs DieAvsDie
Then, based on those matchups, I selected conference. The top half is West, the bottom half East, so the teams are:
Hexisland - Minnesota Wild
Watti - Vancouver Canucks
Cross Traffic - Chicago Blackhawks
TooCool - Edmonton Oilers
DieAvsDie - Tampa Bay Lightning
luckyluc20 - New York Rangers
Matt Young - Pittsburgh Penguins
KingTrekHead - Boston Bruins
I'll have the new thread with specific rules and stuff up in the next couple days. We're in no rush or anything, so if you're not able to start yet, as long as you communicate with the rest of us (preferably here or in the new thread I'll start), this should go smoothly. I'll have the rules regarding how we'll handle it should communication break down (like it did last year) in the new thread.
Anyone get any practice games in yet?

I'm ready. I'll definitely have to play a few games to get the rust off; i haven't touched this game since Fallout came out.
And what the hell was i thinking picking Tampa Bay?
