"NHL Playoff Pick'em?"
Where are all our NHL peeps? The defending champs just backed into the playoffs and big teams are missing key players so who will come out on top this year.

2. "2011 NHL Playoff Pick'em"
I was just coming by to start a thread if no one else had.

Instructions from last year's thread (with some modifications):

Pick the winning team from each series right up to the conference and Stanley Cup finals.

Here's a fictitious example,

1. Washington Capitals
2. New Jersey Devils
3. Buffalo Sabres
4. Pittsburgh Penguins
5. Ottawa Senators
6. Montreal Canadiens
7. Philadelphia Flyers
8. Boston Bruins

**official standings are available here

The 1st seed plays the 8th seed, the 2nd seed plays the 7th seed and so on - example picks as follows.

Series 1 Washington(1)/Boston(8)
- Boston wins

Series 2 New Jersey(2)/Philadelphia(7)
- New Jersey wins

Series 3 Buffalo(3)/Montreal(6)
- Montreal wins

Series 4 Pittsburgh(4)/ Ottawa(5)
- Ottawa wins

:. Should all my picks come in, I collect 4 points and my winning teams move on to the second round where I have picked teams all the way through to the Stanley Cup Final.

:. Correct picks in the first round are worth 1 point, 2 in the second, 3 in the third and 5 for the final.

:. Pick a series in the correct number of games ie. Montreal over Buffalo in six games. So along with naming your series winner, tell me in how many games the series will end. One half point (0.5) will awarded for each correct answer.

:. Lastly in the unlikely event that we end up tied, a tie-breaking question for your viewing pleasure. Tell me how many goals will be scored in the Stanley Cup deciding game. Closest to the answer without going over.

:. Your picks must be submitted by reply to this thresd before the playoffs begin.

3. "My picks"
LAST EDITED ON 04-12-11 AT 03:53 PM (EST)

Western Conference Quarterfinals:

1. Vancouver v. 8. Chicago

Vancouver in 6. Chicago is out of gas.

2. San Jose v. 7. L.A.

San Jose in 5. L.A. doesn't have the firepower left b/c of injuries.

3. Detroit v. 6. Phoenix

Phoenix in 7. Detroit doesn't have the goal-tending.

4. Anaheim v. 5. Nashville

Nashville in 6. Anaheim's top line can't beat the gritty and balanced Preds.


Eastern Conference Quarterfinals:

1. Washington v. 8. New York Rangers

Washington in 6. I would take them in 5, but I don't have much confidence in the Caps.

2. Philadelphia v. 7. Buffalo

Philly in 7. I don't think Philly has the goal-tending either, but I'm not sure if Miller is 100%.

3. Boston v. 6. Montreal

Boston in 6. Price is good, but the Bs have too much firepower + Chara.

4. Pittsburgh v. Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay in 7. I still can't believe that the Pens did so well with Sid the Kid. Still, TB has something going this year.

Western Semifinals:

1. Vancouver v. 6. Phoenix

Vancouver in 5. Phoenix will be over-matched and tired after beating Detroit.

2. San Jose v. 5. Nashville

Nashville in 7. The Preds finally throw off the SJ monkey; Thornton gets run out of town.

Eastern Semifinals:

1. Washington v. 5. Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay in 7. Ovie & Co. disappoint once again.

2. Philadelphia v. 3. Boston

Boston in 6. No repeat of last year's disaster. Bruins TCB.

Western Finals:

1. Vancouver v. 5. Nashville

Vancouver in 6. I would love to see Nashville win, but Vancouver has a lot of pieces that the Preds don't have to win a 7-game series. I predicted this Western Finals match-up last year, too, so don't bet any money on my picks.

Eastern Finals:

3. Boston v. 5. Tampa Bay.

Boston in 6. Bruins FINALLY get back to SC Finals.

Stanley Cup Finals:

Boston in 7 (total goals=7). I think (hope, PRAY) this is the Bruins year.

5. "RE: 2011 NHL Playoff Pick'em"
Let's see if I can make it three times.

EAST FIRST ROUND

1) Washington vs. 8) New York - I just don't know if I trust the Capitals in the playoffs yet. Then again, I don't know if the Rangers are this year's Canadiens.
Caps in five

2) Philadelphia vs. 7) Buffalo - Last year's Flyers caught fire in the playoffs. They're also SI's pick.
Flyers in five

3) Boston vs. 6) Montreal - Rule no. 1: Never trust the Bruins as a high seed against Montreal, when the Canadiens have their number this year.
Habs in six

4) Pittsburgh vs. 5) Tampa Bay - So the Southeast got another one in. And Sid the Kid's still out. And yet, the Pens are fine.
Pens in six

WEST FIRST ROUND

1) Vancouver vs. 8) Chicago - The defending champs? More like chumps backing into the playoffs.
Canucks in a sweep

2) San Jose vs. 7) Los Angeles - The least playoff-equipped good team ever vs. a team that could surprise people.
Kings in six

3) Detroit vs. 6) Phoenix - Are these the Red Wings circa 2009 or the Red Wings circa 2010? Doesn't matter; even the subpar Red Wings beat Phoenix.
Wings in six

4) Anaheim vs. 5) Nashville - The Ducks scare me. And the Predators never win a playoff series.
Ducks in five

EAST SEMIFINALS

1) Washington vs. 6) Montreal - Last year's surprise team against last year's first-round disaster. Revenge is sweet.
Caps in seven

2) Philadelphia vs. 4) Pittsburgh - This one could go either way. I'll take playoff experience, especially if Sid's back.
Pens in six

WEST SEMIFINALS

1) Vancouver vs. 7) Los Angeles - The Kings' luck runs out.
Canucks in five

3) Detroit vs. 4) Anaheim - This series makes my head hurt.
Wings in seven

EAST FINAL

1) Washington vs. 4) Pittsburgh - Do I trust the Caps? Do I trust the Caps? Hmm...if I have to ask again...no.
Pens in seven

WEST FINAL

1) Vancouver vs. 3) Detroit - Shaky goaltending and good offense vs. shaky goaltending and good offense. I have to go with the rested team...nah, can't do it.
Wings in six

STANLEY CUP FINAL

Pittsburgh vs. Detroit - It worked in 2009.
Wings in seven, final score 3-2

OK, so I'm too late to make an official post. I'll just go on record to say that the Kings will become the first team to lose a best of seven series in three games. (Of course, they will blow a two goal lead in each of those games as well...)

It's been that kind of year.

eta - bbl to add my Kings siggie -- I'm bitter, but loyal.

I agree with the Capn. It's nice to see as much variety in the picks as possible. It will also give us some indication on whether knowing the result of the first games of the series' helps at all.

I think this is the year the Capitals get there. I guess it depends on whether or not they can remember how defense works once the playoffs start (and Mike Green comes back).

I'd rather not do the round by round predictions (I know, I'm no fun) but I'll say Caps v. Canucks final. Caps in 7. 4 goals total in game 7.

11. "RE: NHL Playoff Pick'em?"
First round

Eastern Conference:
Washington over New York over in 6 - I don't think Washington has got the Def for the playoffs but Lundqvist steals 2 games but missing Callahan is too much.
Buffalo over Philadelphia in 6 - I keep hoping the Miller finally does something and I hate Pronger so this is base on feelings.
Boston over Montreal in 7 - Another gut pick. Thomas is back.
Tampa Bay over Pittsburgh in 6 - Yes, Pitts been doing it for most of the year without Crosby and Malkin but this is the playoffs.

Western Conference
Vancouver over Chicago in 6 - Vancouver finally gets by Chicago in Chicago. Crawford is no Niemi but Chicago put up a fight but their lack of depth (most due to salary cap moves) with come back to bit them in the butt.
San Jose over LA in 5 - LA is missing their top two scores and Quick can't do it all.
Detroit over Phoenix in 7 - Howard is not the issue...Def and turnovers in their own end leaving Howard out to dry is. Babcock will get them right more games than not and Phoenix will fight like they did last year.
Anaheim over Nashville in 7 - Two every hot teams but Nashville let me down last year plus the Perry line is too much for even their good team Def.

Second round

Eastern Conference
Buffalo over Washington in 6
Boston over Tampa Bay in 7

Western Conference
Vancouver over Anaheim in 6
San Jose over Detroit in 7

Conference Finals

Boston over Buffalo in 6
Vancouver over San Jose in 7

Stanley Cup Finals

Boston over Vancouver in 7

Final game has 7 goals.

Agreed completely - especially since the Wings bumped off Phoenix with relatively little effort, and all the other teams are killing each other while the Wings sit back, laugh, rest, and get healthy.

Z is going to be 100% and has been skating with the team all week. Franzen has skated but not with the team. He says he is ready to go but Babcock says he'll wait and see.

I expect them both back and 100% but Franzen will still have all the stitches in his face.

No fancy-schmansy tables from me--just the facts.

Here's what I have as the standings. My understanding is that one only gets credit for a series ending in the correct # of games if one picks the correct winner. If I'm wrong, someone will correct me, I'm sure. With so much on the line (bragging rights, an imaginary toque, poutine), please double-check your scores.

1. Cappy: 9
2. mrc: 8.5
3. Deb: 7
4. Yogi: 6.5
4. Hobbs: 6.5
6. Stan: 5.5
*7. Pepe: 5
8. Col. Z.: 4.5

*Not eligible for the grand prizes due to late entry.

I didn't do so badly...although I am hoping going forward the Capn's predictions are more accurate than mine!


Playoff hockey in May! Woooo!

I didn't count the 2nd round points correctly. I'll fix it on Monday.

28. "Corrected 2nd Round Standings"
According to the rules, correct picks for series winners in the 2nd round are worth 2 pts., which is where I screwed up. There is no stipulation that points for picking a series in the correct # of games increases each round, so I added .5 like in the first round. If I'm wrong, I can revise. (This is what happens when a non-quantitative historian runs a game! )

1. Cappy: 15.5
2. mrc: 14.5
3. Hobbs 13
3. Deb 13
5. Yogi 10.5
6. Stan 10
7. Pepe 7
8. Col. Zoidberg 6.5

Thanks for the update mrc. It should be interesting right to the end since a lot of peeps still have picks right to the last round. Pretty smart peeps round these parts.

31. "3rd Round Standings"
LAST EDITED ON 06-03-11 AT 10:53 PM (EST)

Hmm. Hobbs and I both have a Bos-Van SC Finals with Boston winning in 7 games with a 7-goal total. We're smart peeps!

Actually, 5 of the 8 players chose either Vancouver or Boston as SC winner--pretty decent picking.

Name (SC pick)
1. mrc: 20.5 (Boston)
2. Hobbs: 19 (Boston)
3. Cappy: 18.5 (Vancouver)
4. Deb: 16 (San Jose)
5. Yogi: 13.5 (Boston)
6. Stan: 13 (Vancouver)
7. Pepe: 7 (Philadelphia San Jose)
8. Zoidberg: 6.5 (Detroit)

If Boston wins, then I win first place. (Sorry, Hobbs.) If Vancouver wins, then Cappy takes the gold. Everyone else . . . well, thanks for playing.

Not that it makes one bit of a difference considering how far down I am in the rankings ... but HEY! I would die before I'd ever consider picking the Flyers to win the Cup. That's how much I despise them. (Picked the Sharks to win, actually. )

We do have smart peeps here who know their hockey. The picks really were good this year, we're into the last round and the winner is still in doubt (but already know who's going to win don't we? ).

A lot of thanks for hosting MRC.

37. "RE: NHL Playoff Pick'em?"
I don't make banners, esp. for myself, but here are the final standings:

1. mrc: 26
2. Hobbs: 24.5
3. Yogi: 18.5 (tie-breaker-4 goals in final game)
4. Cappy: 18.5 (tie-breaker-7 goals in final game)
5. Deb: 16
6. Stan: 13
7. Pepe: 7*
8. Zoidberg: 6.5

*Unofficial since picks were late

I'm reveling in my win here as much as the Bruins win over the Canucks. Good picking, folks.

38. "RE: NHL Playoff Pick'em?"
The funny thing about this outcome is that I'm the Bostonian, and I wouldn't have picked the Bruins to win the Cup this year. Not after the way they sagged at the end of the season, and not after drawing Montreal in the first round of the playoffs. Honestly, I thought the Bruins were going to lose to Montreal, which would be fired up by Chara's cheap shot, and Claude Julian would get fired...

...which shows just how little I know.

or it shows how unpredictable the NHL is with a salary cap.
