The season ends on Sunday and we still don't know all the playoffs match-ups yet but let's get ready anyway!!
Last year winner was Lefty (aka comatose), let's see if he can do it again
2014: don't remember!
(copy pasted from last year thread )
Here's how it works:
We give a rank to each teams from 1 to 16
16 = the team you think has the best chance to win the Stanley Cup
15 = the team you think has the 2nd best chance to win the Stanley Cup
1 = the team you think has no chance to win the first round
After each round, you are awarded points using the rank you gave to the winning teams
1st round = rank x 1pts
2nd round = rank x 2pts
3rd round = rank x 4pts
final round = rank x 8pts
I give Chicago a rank of 14 and they lose in the 3rd round.
1st round = 14 x 1 = 14 pts
2nd round = 14 x 2 = 28 pts
3rd round = 0 pts
final round = 0 pts
So Chicago gave me 42pts.
We do this with every team and add up all the points.
You can post your picks here or send them to me by PM if you don't want everyone to copy you before playoffs starts.
I will post everyone's picks together when the playoffs begins.
You have until Wednesday April 12 (until the first game starts) to send me your picks or make changes to them.
Let's try to get every hockey fan in this pool. The more the merrier!
Here is the NHL playoffs tree to help you with your choices. (Wait until Monday to have the real match-ups)
Good luck to everyone!!
