The post above will be edited as often as possible. Make sure that one player from each game posts the results from the game in this thread. Somewhere in the options menus on NHL 09 is an option to have the results emailed to you. Just set that up, cut and paste from the email, and wrap it in this without the spaces: [ C o d e ] [ / C o d e ].
I don't really think there's any reason to set up a new league/group online for this... to play each game, just set up an unranked game with the following (default) settings:
Private Game: Yes
Game Speed: Medium
Period Length: 5 min
It'd be interesting to play with 10 minute periods with a slow game speed, but we'll stick with the default settings since we're probably all used to them.
Have fun, feel free to suggest anything, post whatever you want, and in the case of nonresponsive players, we'll play it by ear (read: kill them).

Okay so I pretty much just cut and pasted from last year's tournament in the posts above. I think it was set up quite nicely, it just epic failed.
Again, no rush to get the games in, but go ahead and PM your first round opponents and let's see if we can get the first round in within the next week or so.

Do we go by the way the teams are seeded as far as Home ice advantage?

Good question. I'd say that's as good a way as any other, so yeah, let's go with this ranking in terms of home ice:

7 - Matt Young (not listed)
8 - KingTrekHead (not listed)
For the first two rounds we'll do a 1-1-1 (home-away-home) format, so Hexisland, myself, Cross Traffic, and TooCool should be setting up the first games (the person who sets the game up defaults to the home team).
For the final round, we'll do a 2-2-1 format (2 games at home, 2 on the road, and last one at home for the higher seeded team). We won't be reseeding or anything fancy like that, just basic tournament format.
Make sense to everyone? Let me know if I forgot anything else

Sounds good Watti.
Hopefully this works out well! I don't care if I go out quickly 2 games to none. This is a cool idea

Just getting yourself mentally prepared for the epic beatdown you're about to get?
