Got 5/8 correct, but only 1 correct games in those 5. Eastern conference hosed me as I got 3/4 wrong.

At least I can brag about being the only one to get St. Louis in 5 correct?

Hey, Sid. Is it normal for the inside of your bung-hole to itch?

I only got three series right and of those I only got the games correct on one of them (Pens/Jackets).

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.

nailed the caps guess!

not much else though. Gonna get 4 pts I think

If the Preds are eliminated by the Blues, I'll donate $30 to the PK Subban Foundation so we can get more awesome pictures of PK smiling and being happy, which will probably cure all those kids.

If the Caps are eliminated by the Pens, I'll donate $50 to the Kids on Ice program so that there will be skilled children to skate over my grave after I overdose on The Narrative.

First round, by my count:

WSH in 5- Right team, wrong games.
PIT in 6- Right team, wrong games.

Miosis more like meiosis

Predators in 5 - even if both Jake Allen and Pekka Rinne regress, Nashville is way deeper than St. Louis.

Ducks in 6 - not nearly as banged up as the Sharks. I said earlier I didn't think Edmonton could make it by both Cali teams and I'm sticking to that, although I'll be happy to be proven wrong.

Capitals in 7 - THIS IS THE YEAR, BABY (also Letang still dead)

Senators in 6 - every round needs an upset, and Karlsson is the best defenseman in the world right now.

So, here is the point system we're going to use to rate your ability to pick a winner.

  • If you pick the winning team of a series, you get two points.
  • If you pick the correct number of games, you get three additional points
  • If your amount of games is off by one, you get two bonus points.
  • If you are off by two in games needed, you get one bonus point.
  • If you are off by three, you get nothing.
  • If you pick the wrong winner, you lose a point.

The amount of points will double each round, so the max points per series in the first round is 5 (2 + 3), and the max for the cup is 40 (16 + 24).

Accuracy counts!

to be clear, point values for round 1:
