2013 Playoff Game - MAKE YOUR STANLEY CUP FINAL PICK!
 
One of the ongoing traditions of HF Wild has been to spend the postseason talking about the Draft while other teams continue playing and making predictions. Now the first one gets to change.

We've done a playoff prediction the last 3 years for bragging rights if you so choose to use them. Past winners include Burns4Norris*, casper and GopherState (yes I won my own game the first year - it didn't stop me from also finishing near the bottom either)

Rules:

1. At the start, pick the two 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 it will take for them to win four games (2 points winning team only).

2. Each round, pick the winning team of each series and number of games it will take for them to win four games. 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
1) Chicago vs. 8) MINNESOTA
2) Anaheim vs. 7) Detroit
3) Vancouver vs. 6) San Jose
4) St. Louis vs. 5) Los Angeles

EAST
1) Pittsburgh vs. 8) New York Islanders
2) Montreal vs. 7) Ottawa
3) Washington vs. 6) New York Rangers
4) Boston vs. 5) Toronto

Normally you have until the beginning of the first game of a round to get picks in (i.e. the playoffs start at 7 p.m. CT Tuesday). Since the turnaround for the end of the regular season to the beginning of the postseason is so short (less than 48 hours), I'm willing to accept picks up until all first round series have started. The only caveat is that you won't get the extra point for correctly picking a series if the pick comes after a series has started.

Let the games begin!

That's an interesting strategy which I wonder how it will turn out.

I was thinking about having the Wild win it all, but I decided against it. If that happens though I would be sooooooooo happy.
