I'm saying that it's a lot easier to get one series right to get 40 points than it is to get 6 or 7 series right to get 35 points or w/e. This post is moot if there was a form that allowed us to pick round 2, the conference finals and stanley cup finals that I missed earlier.

It's also a lot easier to get zero points in the last round than it is in the first.

It's the arrogance of the subtext: The province of human affairs is a field best left to dilettantes' extraordinary gift for the feigning of paralysis. For saying nothing at all. For daydreams of black-tie affairs at Rideau Hall. An acceptance speech. Sustained applause.

Yeah, I was thinking Carlyle + Fowler being out would be bad for them but I guess I overestimated Calgary.

If Ottawa gets by Boston I will donate $20 to the fuckin Shawn Thornton Foundation. lol

If Chicago knocks off Nashville I will donate $20 to the PK Subban Foundation to cheer him up.

If Toronto beats the Caps I will donate $40 to the Kids on Ice program at the Ft Dupont Ice Arena to help restock the Caps with talent down the road. (Pretty sure that's how it works.)

I failed to account for the fact that Erik Karlsson is better than the 6 defensemen combined on Boston when predicting that series.

4/8 so far (Blues, Ducks, Caps and Pens correctly predicted), 0/8 on games.

I can't believe I'm getting beat by a bot who went 6/8 and 3/8 on games (although it picked Flames in 4 which is hilarious).

Alright then, let's look at the toxxes for round 1.

bunnyofdoom posted:

My Toxx is as such.

Since I am prohibited from drinking for medical reasons until May 5th, on that day, I shall drink one beer for every game the sens lost.


(Not good enough?)

Real Toxx:

I will buy an avatar of whatever team knocks the sens out of the playoffs, which two special cases.
1. Should the leafs make it farther then the sens, then the avatar will instead be a leafs one
2. Should the sens win the cup, it will be a Karlsson and/or Anderson one.


(Also, for every round the sens make, I will donate $20 to the Canadian Cancer Society, with an additional $50 if they win the cup.)

EDIT:

Alright, still not drinking, but Sens lost twice to the Bruins, therefore I will have to add 2 Sam Adams to the total.

As well, Sens, haven't been knocked out, and leafs have so clause 1 is not valid anymore, therefore, I either get a sens av, or whoever knocks em out.

As well, I ahve set aside $20 to donate, and iwll when the Sens run ends


all-Rush mixtape posted:

IMHO, the absolute, definitive ceiling the Maple Leafs will have this postseason is the ECF, and that's only if they get a point tomorrow. I have no delusion in thinking we'd get past against any team in the Metropolitan Division.

In fact, if the Toronto Maple Leafs make the 2017 Stanley Cup Final, I will fly to Toronto from Austin to watch Games 4-7 (almost certainly at Maple Leaf Square)

You're safe, so you won't get beaten on a united flight. Congrats.
