Making you happy for a buck since 199X


Five-year-old nephew's picks with commentary:

Predators in 6 (Originally said Predators in 5, then upon being told Saros is injured, "oh... I guess Predators in 6 then.")
Wild in 4 ("Last time I saw the Blues I think they were really bad.")
Flames in 7 ("The Flames are really good.")
Oilers in 7 ("Oilers for sure!")

Capitals in 7 ("Because they have the best shooter in the league. But the Panthers are really good too. I think the best player on the Panthers is Bobrovsky.")
Lightning in 5 ("the Lightning are the best team in the league! Why do the Maple Leafs have to play the best team in the league, I thought they were really good too?")
Hurricanes in 7 ("I think it has to go seven games because the Hurricanes and the Bruins are both really tough teams.")
Rangers in 7 ("Because even though the Penguins were on a good point, they're getting down to a lower point.")

They give you a grace period of the first game across the playoffs, so plenty more time for people to join.

The playoffs have started! Good turnout this year.

Please check that i entered your predictions correctly. The charts this year are alphabetical!

Man, I knew the playoffs were coming, but the appearance of The Red X Spreadsheet really cements it.

It's like when they start saying The Cup Is In The Building and I'm imagining Powershift handling this with white gloves.

That's why it hurt so much to have to do this.

They're late (and also this doesn't really matter) but my six- and eight-year-olds picked. The 8 year old is high on the Preds (he likes the logo) and the 6 year old is a total homer for the Oilers, but otherwise it's not... terrible?

hmm me and T-Bone were the two morons who trusted the Oilers.. well at least I'm in good company under that big ol red X.

Games tonight were fun even though some of them were blowouts.. hope tomorrow's games live up to that energy.

You mean the point isnt to collect them as fast as possible??

Half my picks were doomer picks, the other half spite picks. I will gladly take 7 red X's if all my picks end up wrong. Dallas still needs to beat Calgary though, I actually want that one to be true.

I forgot to put a number of games on my Blues/Wild series but I meant Blues in seven. I don't think my intention was to call a four game sweep by the Blues "the best series of the first round."

Preeeeeeeeeeeeeeeettty pretty convenient to only bring it up once the Blues finally lose :colbert:


I'ved move it but i ultimately don't think it's going to matter after seeing their last game.

Not me, I never trusted the Flames

I don't trust a team that employs Jack Mother loving Johnson either so I guess the Blues/Wild winner is probably going to win the West.... if the Avs weren't playing JMFJ 18 minutes a night they'd steamroll their way to the Cup most likely

Iíll admit I thought they were insanely better than Dallas, but I also have an extremely low opinion of the Stars, I think they and the Kings are fake playoff teams. What I shouldnít have underestimated is the propensity for Canadian teams to be disappointments. I think itís also a bit of a bad matchup for them because Sutter will happily let games become 50/50 nothingburgers and thatís how bad teams want to play.
