As a group, the panel was 2-2 last round. Ironically, the only person to choose Chicago was Mapletree Marty - who got the other three series wrong! Chris Boyle (Top 100 roto-rankings), Tom Reeve (Looking Ahead) and Justin Goldman (School of Block) lead the prognosticators with a 9-3 record. As a group, the DobberHockey Panel is 9-3.
For the third round, so far no expert is stepping up and saying "Chicago" and most of those who choose Carolina can only meekly proclaim "seven games"!
