The season is over, which means it’s time to announce the results of SoB’s annual NHL Pick ‘Em for the regular season. It was a fun season to watch, and the Canadiens and Bruins will continue the excitement in the postseason. So be sure to keep an eye on that.
In this year’s Pick ‘Em, the Devils’ poor start to the season ended up costing everyone. But aside from that, and me picking the Sabres, all division winners were correctly guessed. The other picks had a lot of us stumped as far as seeding was concerned, but the teams themselves were easy enough to choose.
So who ended up winning through all of it? The winner of the 2010-2011 NHL Pick ‘Em is…Erikk. Congrats to Erikk, who won thanks to picking the top of the West in order. Thanks to that, he didn’t even need the bonus points the Penguins would have brought.
So there you have it. Check below to see how everyone’s picks turned out, and to see the final standings.
