It's that time of the year again when Lord Stanley's Cup is up for grabs to those teams lucky (or good) enough to qualify for the playoffs. Sadly, the Chicago Blackhawks are not one of those teams. Broken Heart

However, I will still hold the competition where we all try to predict what's going to happen. Dancing

Who is with me?

I will post the rules and matchups either later today or early tomorrow depending on how things shake out for me this afternoon.

Random observation.
The Western Conference matchups for the first round this year would be the same if they still did the 1-8 seeding.
Eastern Conference only the Tampa-Carolina matchup would stay the same.

Awesome!

Here are the parameters:

In each series you pick the team that you think will win and the number of games you think the series will last. The scoring for each round will increase incrementally. You can earn points in three different ways: Scoring structure below.

Round 1

Pick the correct team = 3 pts
Pick the correct number of games = 3 pts
Pick the correct team + the number of games = 8pts

Round 2

Pick the correct team = 5 pts
Pick the correct number of games = 5 pts
Pick the correct team + the number of games = 13pts

Round 3 - Conference Championship

Pick the correct team = 8 pts
Pick the correct number of games = 8 pts
Pick the correct team + the number of games = 20pts

Round 4 Stanley Cup

Pick the correct team = 10 pts
Pick the correct number of games = 10 pts
Pick the correct team + the number of games = 30pts


Example - In Round 1 you pick the Columbus Blue Jackets to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning in 6 games. If that happens then you earn 8 points for getting the correct team and the correct number of games. If Columbus wins in 4, 5 or 7 then you will receive 3 points for getting the correct team. If Tampa wins in 6 then you will get 3 points for correctly predicting the number of games in the series.

In Rounds 3 & 4 (Conference Championship and Stanley Cup Finals) there will be Prop Bets so you can either pad your lead or catch up to the front runners.

Good luck everyone!

I was hoping you would make it! Devils won the #1 pick in the draft. You know who is 2nd and then my Blackhawks get a go!

Damn, should have known better than to predict a sweep.

Absolutely floored they won the draft lottery again. Good year for it to happen. It's serious rebuild mode and this is a huge step. That #1 pick follows Taylor Hall around. 5 lottery wins in 9 years.

BTW - I had a 3 game NHL swing in mid-Feb. Coyotes-Blues in Phoenix on Feb 14. Golden Knights -Preds in Vegas on Feb 16. Go to a game in Vegas. They have a freaking bar at the TOP of the arena at the one end. It's called the Hyde Lounge and looks DOWN on the scoreboard. Sick views. Ducks - Caps game on Feb 17 in Anaheim for Scott Niedermayer jersey retirement night. Saw his jersey # retired back for the Devils a number of years ago.

Okay... I guess I was correct to predict a sweep (so yay, points?)... I just picked the wrong team.

When did Marty Schottenheimer start coaching hockey?

I was not too surprised when Columbus won Game 1. They are a pretty good team (obviously) and are coached by one of the best. Whether you hate John Tortarella or just dislike him, he knows how to get the best out of his team.

Now, with hindsight, I can say that the series was over in Game 1 when the Lightning went into the locker room with a 3-0 lead after the first intermission. At that point they were assured of going all the way, right? At no point during the season did Tampa ever face any kind of adversity. They crushed everyone, tied for the most wins ever in a season and clinched the President's Trophy before Spring even started.

Eight seeds have beaten ones in the Stanley Cup Playoffs but a 1 has never been swept in the first round as far as I can recall. The President's Trophy does not necessarily guarantee a Stanley Cup.

Since two series have now finished (see ya Penguins!) I will start posting the leader board. Probably later today.

Well, my cat Loki got bit by something yesterday so instead of posting results I am on the way to the vet. Sad He should be OK but probably needs some medication.

Hopefully I can get to it this afternoon.
