The Official scores for round 4 (Stanley Cup Finals)


Mikeyfan5599: 150
CMC18V: 140
Coachkbball: 110
Larry Lava: 100
Buccingator: 90
Kburjr: 90
Ninermanic63: 90

Bondkbond: 50
The Muffin Man: 50
Foreplus: 40
Blitzburgh: 10

Congrats to Mikey for winning the final round with 150 points out of a possible 190.
He was the only player to pick Justin Williams to get that 50 pointer.
Well done Mikey!!!


Honorable mentions go out to CMC, Larry, and myself as the only others to get triple digits this round. Nice job guys!

It is also worth noting that CMC's last round was nothing short of brilliant.
He had 140 out of a possible 190. The only thing he didn't get right was the 50 point bonus. He hit both 20 pointers and was a perfect 10 for 10 on the 10 pointers.
I'm quite sure that nobody has done that in the 3 years of this contest.
Take a bow sir, you earned it!

Congrats to our Co-Champions CMC & Larry!!!

After Larry started the first round near the bottom, his Hockey knowledge kicked in the last 3 rounds, especially in the finals. Great job Larry!

CMC started the 1st round tied for 1st, and finished tied for 1st.
He didn't do that great in rounds 2 or 3, but his last round was outstanding. A perfect score, minus the bonus question. Congrats CMC!

Congrats as well to Niner and ALL-PGH with their great scores of 288, which was a mere 5 points off of our eventual champs score. Very nice job fellas!

I would like to thank everyone or their participation, and I hope everyone had fun with this, and I hope to see ya back here in 2015!!!

BECAUSE IT'S THE CUP!!!
    faceoff!  boarding!  fight!

Thank you very much for running this. I know it is a lot of work for you and a lot of fun for us. Beating all the TNG&B boys makes this perfect! I knew I shouldn't have picked the Wild against the Hawks.

EXCELLENT Job Coach and Thank You for running this Pick-Em.

Congrats CMC on our tie, we almost made it to 300.......wow a TIE....that is kind of weird when you think of all the Bonus Questions......I thought you were going to win when LA won the "Cup" in 5.

It is a HONOUR to win this Pick-Em and share a GOLD Medal with CMC..........Look at ALL the Poster's that played in this....
...A lot of LEGENDS and GREAT people.
Respect is huge in my books

Don't give up.  Don't ever give up.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.

How about...most series number of games predicted correctly? In my mind, to correctly pick the winner of a series is one thing, but to correctly predict exactly how many games it goes as well implies sort of that not only did someone pick the winner correctly, they also correctly predicted...kind of how the series would go. Or at least got very lucky. :D Like, people who predicted Kings in 5 for the Cup sort of predicted that the series would be more or less dominated by the Kings, whereas those who predicted Kings in 7 predicted that it would be close.

Actually, that's not a good example at all because (at least in my mind) it WAS a close series, the Kings just won all the overtime games. But yeah, most series number of games predicted correctly. It incorporates a lot of luck and maybe a little skill, and would probably be easy to determine from the info you already have in your spreadsheet, etc.
