I'm gonna go with what I want to see, not what I think will happen:

WEST
(8) Los Angeles over (1) Vancouver in 6 games.
(2) St. Louis over (7) San Jose in 4 games.
(6) Chicago over (3) Phoenix in 5 games.
(5) Detroit over (4) Nashville in 7 games.

EAST
(1) New York Rangers over (8) Ottawa in 4 games.
(2) Boston over (7) Washington in 5 games.
(6) New Jersey over (3) Florida in 6 games.
(5) Philadelphia over (4) Pittsburgh in 7 games.

Stanley Cup Champions: St. Louis beats Boston in 7.

Well if we've learned anything from last year, the Blues will beat the Bruins in 7.

Since we know we're incapable of learning...does that mean Nashville over Pittsburgh in 5?

These were our rules last year:

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.

Maximum points are:

- 10 points for Stanley Cup winner, losing team, and number of games
- 24 points for first round (all eight teams plus games)
- 12 points for second round (all four teams plus games)
- 8 points for third round (both teams plus games)
- 6 points for Cup round (correct team plus games)

Highest points wins. Tiebreakers would be number of correct lower seed "upsets".

Gopher, same scoring?

With all of you clearly copying my Nashville obsession, I sort of feel the need to switch it up...

Same scoring - 2 for a series win, bonus point for getting the games right. I'd rather use a tiebreaker of points in the SCF (and using the Conference Finals, etc. if needed) but if others like the lower seed upsets, that's cool too.

On the plus side, the unofficial mod bracket is twice as big this year.

Thanks squidz, that kinda explains it. I can't believe their offense has clicked that well, sure they don't have bad players but they are not as good on paper as they are performing. Preds will become my 2nd favorite team to root for this PO!

ATTENTION!

PLEASE review the entries on the first page and let me know if there are any errors. I'll be able to go back and check if we find any down the road but this will speed things up as it's all on my spreadsheet and will be automated from here on out.

Thanks!

Also,

We need the following:

WILDhockeyfan - need SC final picks and games

Victorious Secret - need SC winner games




Thanks again Gopher for remembering

There's only been 2 times the series was 5 games since (and including) Dallas won the cup. So that's only twice in twelve series. Of course, if you're one of those pattens people, it was in 2002 and 2007, which would make us "due" for one. The last 4 game final was in 1998.

Those was some good times in the mid-late 90s where almost every SCF ended in a sweep and Fox kept getting screwed out of showing the Cup being raised.

I tend to think with defensive systems and low scoring games that it makes for longer series. And since I picked Nashville would be there, I went 7.

Last year I called Vancouver over Boston in 7.
