e. Here is the link to the spreadsheets, note there are two tabs at the bottom to look at:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...dit?usp=sharing

Good evening, y'all. It's playoff eve, and the hopes of 15 different teams are about to be hilariously and cruelly dashed on Lord Stanley's rocks. Probations will be handed out like loving Easter chocolate, and - if we're very good and a little lucky - might even get a banme or two out of this.

Because I'm _______ I didn't get into any sports pools this season, instead of just letting the season go out on a whimper I thought I would try to be a little be proactive and contribute to these forums, trolling rear end in a top hat that I can be from time to time.

My idea is as follows:

We hold a big ol' bracket contest.

Hats off to lmaothekid for getting the official sas bracket going, no doubt, but THIS one is gonna have prizes!

I'm open to suggestions in this, but my idea is as follows:

Every playoff series of every round is worth points, with every round worth twice as much as the one before it. For every correct playoff series prediction, you score that number of points.

For instance:

Round 1 - 8 series @ 2 points each
Round 2 - 4 series @ 4 points each
Round 3 - 2 series @ 8 points each
Round 4 - 1 series @ 16 points

Say, for example, mcvey only got 2 first round series correct, 1 second round series and 1 third rounder (because he is stupid). He would have accumulated a grand total of 16 points. And he would lose.

These points would be scored and predictions made on a round by round basis.

The next way to score points is # of games played per series. You would score 2 points for every correct series game total, regardless of round. These predictions would also be made on a round by round basis.

Then there is the bonus round! Each of these questions are worth a totally scientifically-calculated value of... 10 points each. These are made at the beginning of the playoffs and are locked in once the contest has started. These will be done on a "closest to the mark" style.

The person with the highest accumulated point total wins!


But what do they win, Bob?

First place will receive a custom made uv screen print of anything their/sas' collective imagination can come up with, from the hands of yours truly (think all the hilarity of the finest of forums avatars, but with the room for detail and imagination of an lp cover. I have made pieces like this in the past (FLYING LEMUR WHERE ARE YOU) but as I am typing this on my phone en route somewhere between nowhere and ummmm, I can't post the image. It is a print of the creation of man (God and Adam touching fingers on the Sistine chapel) but Lemieux as our Lord, Crosby as our primogeniture, and a whole bunch of former penguins as cute little cherubs with Bettman's face covering up their cute little wangs. Eh. I will post the image later.

On top of this, first place will also receive 50 bucks worth of
Memorabilia and merchandise of my choosing from my personal collection.

If the response to this is more than just a handful of posters, I will allocate merch and memorabilia value for 2nd and 3rd as well. Maybe for every 10 posters another winning slot is added, to a maximum of three.

Anyway, seeing as this is awfully close to the playoffs, I am keeping this contest open till 6:55 ET Friday, April 18. That is 5 minutes before the first game 2 of the playoffs starts. So if you wanna cheat, you have time.

Anyway, this is a bit of a work in progress, if any of you fine gals and gents have suggestions, please share them.

And hand_knit, do you mind keeping this in SAS proper for a few days before moving it to the armchair quarterback?

I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I can always revise history later.

I flipped a coin and then randomly generated a number between 4 and 7. So I can pretend to be aloof and above such a pedestrian distraction, yet still participate.

Colorado - Minnesota Colorado in 7
St Louis - Chicago Chicago in 5
Anaheim - Dallas Dallas in 6
San Jose - Los Angeles Los Angeles in 6
Boston - Detroit Detroit in 7
Tampa Bay - Montreal Tampa Bay in 5
Pittsburgh - Columbus Pittsburgh in 6
New York - Philadelphia Philadelphia in 7

edit: but it's too hard to figure out a way to do the other guesses while feigning detachment, so I guess I'll have to do these properly:

Stanley Cup winning team: Los Angeles
Conn Smythe winner: Carey Price
Number of OT games: 27
Number of suspensions: 4
Total goals of entire playoffs: 258
Total goals of the finals: 27
Carey Price's gaa and s%: 2.37 & .918
Which 1990-present expansion team will go furthest (tie breaker of total wins, and, failing that, goals for): Columbus 9 wins, 61 GF
The "worst" team (aka the team that lost to the team that lost to the team that lost to the cup winner): Philadelphia
Total number of game 7's played: 7
Total number of sweeps: 2
Leading goal scorer/leading goal total (10 per): Joe Pavelski

Welp, I'll do terribly even if I'm allowed to cheat so might as well get them done now. They will also likely differ from my selections in the bracket thread because I'm too lazy to go look them up.

Eastern Conference

1. Boston vs. WC2. Detroit - Boston in 5: Bruins just too good to go out in the first round.

1. PIT vs WC1. Columbus - Pittsburgh in 5: Maybe Fleury doesn't suck this time?

2. Tampa Bay vs. Montreal - Habs in 7: I like the Habs makeup this year, Tampa has questions in net if Bishop is playing hurt.

2. New York Rangers vs. 3. Philadelphia - Flyers in 7: I keep changing my mind on this series, but I want Philly to win so I'll go with them.

Western Conference

1. Anaheim vs. WC2. Dallas - Ducks in 4: Anaheim just feel like a force to be reckoned.

1. Colorado vs. WC1. Minnesota - Avs in 6: Suter is a big X factor, but Avs depth and superior goaltending carries them through.

2. St. Louis vs. 3. Chicago - Hawks in 5: A month ago I felt St. Louis would go all the way, now they're struggling at the worst possible times and are decimated by injuries. Plus defending cup champs is the worst matchup for them.

2. San Jose vs. 3. LA Kings - Kings in 7. Another really close series, I think the Kings have the edge in net and on defence so scrape out a couple very close wins.

Bonus Round!

Stanley Cup winning team: Anaheim Ducks

Conn Smythe winner: Ryan Getzlaf

Number of OT games: 19 (assuming this refers to the entire playoffs)

Number of suspensions: 4 - none longer than 2 games

Total goals of entire playoffs: 388

Total goals of the finals: 25

Carey Price's gaa and s%: 2.16 .919Sv%

Which 1990-present expansion team will go furthest (tie breaker of total wins, and, failing that, goals for): Anaheim - 16 wins - 41GF

The "worst" team (aka the team that lost to the team that lost to the team that lost to the cup winner): New York Rangers

Total number of game 7's played: 7

Total number of sweeps: 2

Leading goal scorer/leading goal total (10 per): Corey Perry - 10g

We don't really care about what that bug-eyed fat walrus has to say


a false posted:

i gave 22 as a guess for how many goals would be in an average series because some series will be short and then i multiplied that by 13. i don't think that's too crazy

that is way low probably, even with every game being a sweep that is only 5.5 goals per game.
