2014 Stanley Cup Pickem' Contest
« on: April 11, 2014, 03:17:49 PM »
Welcome to the our 3rd annual NHL playoff pickem' contest!!!

For those of you that are new to this contest, there will be 4 rounds of picks
and scoring, with round 4 being the Stanley Cup Finals.
You will be asked to pick the winner of each series, and in how many games they will win that series.
In addition to that, you will pick from some secondary questions, such as... which team will score the most goals in the series, or which player will have the most points, and lots of other in game statistical stuff.

We understand that some of you may not be familiar with all of the players as much as others, so the questions will be carefully chosen to match up players with similar stat lines and skill sets to keep it fair.

In the event of a tie in one of the secondary questions it will be thrown out so please pick an answer and not a tie (i.e. Player A and Player B will have the same number of assists is not valid).

Please respond in the order the questions are asked in order to help me score this quicker.  The easiest way to do this is to copy and paste the lineup and post your picks alongside or bold them.

As we progress from one round to the next, the point values for the games and the questions will be increased since there is not as many games as the round before.

Here are the two biggest rules...

1. Have your picks in before the puck drops for the first game of the series.

2. You may change a pick before a series starts, but you must make sure that you notify me of the change by creating a new post and not by editing your original one. If you modify/edit your original picks after that perticular series has already started, none of those picks will count. This prevents any possible way of someone cheating.


The regular season comes to an end this Sunday April 13th.
That means the matchups will be set by Sunday evening, and I should
have them up sometime Sunday night or Monday morning, since the 1st puck drop will be on Wednesday.

Anyone and everyone is welcome here, so please tell your e-friends about it...
BECAUSE IT'S THE CUP!!!

Last season we had 23 players, and our defending champion is Alfred41,
from the infamous TNM&GB thread on the NHL board. Let's take him down, a notch or two! ;)

Not sure who I am rooting for, since my boys will be on the golf courses. :(

3) Washington Capitals vs 6) New York Rangers

5 pts -- Who wins the series?
5 pts -- In how many games?
2 pts – Who will have more points in the series (goals + assists), Alex Ovechkin (WSH) or Rick Nash (NYR)?
2 pts – Which team will have more shots on goal in the series, Capitals or Rangers?

Caps aren't in the playoffs..DUH!!!!

Seriously though, there were a few misunderstandings about the number of games question last year.  You don't get credit for the number of games if your team doesn't win the series.
If I could start my life all over again, I would be a professional football player, and you damn well better believe I would be a Pittsburgh Steeler.
