2012 Playoff Game - MAKE YOUR SCF PICK!
 
Once again, the postseason is here which means two things: the Wild are golfing and it's time for the annual Playoff Game.

We've done this the last couple years for bragging rights and/or to kill the time before Draft and Free Agency - casper won last year and I did the year before.

Rules:

1. At the start, pick the teams you think will meet in the Stanley Cup finals (3 points each), the team that will win the Cup (2 points), and number of games for four wins (2 points winning team only).

2. Each round, pick the winning team of each series and number of games for four wins. 2 points for correct team and 1 point for correct games (winning team only).

3. Stanley Cup round, points are doubled, same rules apply.

Highest points wins. Tiebreakers are points in the SCF (and using the Conference Finals, etc. if needed).

First Round Match-Ups
WEST

Have you watched them play since Radulov joined them?

Picking Detroit to beat the Preds is about as crazy a pick as is possible here. We're only 10 days removed from Nashville absolutely wiping the floor with Detroit. Remember, this was a quality, hard playing team before Radulov came over. They have the #1 PP in the league, 8th best GAA, 8th highest scoring, and 10th best PK. They're up against a Detroit team with an absolutely dreadful 0.41 road winning percentage, marginally better GF/GA (7th/7th to Nashville's 8th/8th) and PP/PK that would make the Wild's look decent.

Given the choice between playing the Blues or the Predators, I think any sensible team will take their chances in St. Louis.
