To clarify, that's 10 years after next year -- so 11 years in total of our goaltender being better than yours.

This thread desperately needs more toxxing. I have no real hope for the Caps this year, but that's not going to stop me.

Caps in 5 (2 + 2 = 4)
If the Blue Jackets eliminate the Capitals I will give $40 to the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation.

Tampa in 5 (2 + 3 = 5)
Boston in 6 (2 + 2 = 4)
Pittsburgh in 7 (2 + 2 = 4)

Nashville in 4 (2 + 1 = 3)
Winnipeg in 5 (2 + 3 = 5)
Los Angeles in 7 (-1)
Anaheim in 6 (-1)

First Round Score = 23

WPG in 7

WSH in 6

Unofficial picks:
WPG over COL

PIT over WAS

VGK over WPG
PIT over BOS

VKG over PIT

Scoring rules:
Don't know what you guys did in previous years but here's what the bracket challenge thing uses:
10 pts for 1st round victory
3 additional points if you get correct number of games
25 pts for 2nd round victory
50 pts for conf finals
100 pts for cup winner
Their thing doesn't let you pick number of games for the later rounds, I guess come up with your own point values for them?

here's what fits/iospace did last year

quote:

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!

Henrik Zetterberg posted:

I regret picking MIN already. gently caress.

On paper, it looks like an easy win for Winnipeg. But if I were to pick any upset in the 1st round, it'd be this series. Having seen no statistics to support my claim, I feel that teams coming into the playoffs for the first time in a few years may have a difficult time, no matter how well they did in the offseason.

However, without Suter, and Spurgeon being a gametime decision, I think Minnesota doesn't make it to the second, no matter how many baseless claims I believe in.

VGK in 6 gently caress the Kings but they are still a good team
ANA in 6

TBL in 5 I don't think Hall is enough against all the Lightning can bring to bear
BOS in 7 because 2013 happening again would be amazing
CBJ in 6 I don't watch the Caps often but I see the scoresheets
PIT in 7 and I wish there to be stupid scores of 11 - 8 every game too

He really likes the avatars as I scroll through threads. His favourite shows are Paw Patrol, and Downton Abbey (seriously, he can't fall asleep without it, he's a weird kid). So it would be amusing if people who lost to my four-year-old had to buy an av from one of those two shows.
