I'm baaaaack. I've been unusually busy lately, so I haven't been able to update the Yelnats Cup, but here I am now taking a look at the Round 2 matchups sans the Wild. I'm well aware that the interest for the Yelnats may drop without the Wild there, but hey, I said I was going to finish the Yelnats this time and by golly, I'm gonna finish it!
Round 2 will be the Buffalo Sabres' and Calgary Flames' debut in the 2012 Yelnats Cup, seeing as they were awarded a first round bye for being the #9 seed in their respective Conferences. I'll compare each team of each matchup, just like I had done in the first round . By the way, looking at which teams I gave the advantage to in the first round, I realized I'm better in real life predictions. Oh well!
I'll also take a quick look at the front runners for the Nnoc Ehtyms trophy.
Join me after the jump!
First, the playoff tree, as a refresher.
#9 Calgary Flames
#13 Anaheim Ducks
#9 Buffalo Sabres
#11 Winnipeg Jets
#9 Calgary Flames vs. #15 Columbus Blue Jackets
