    Default NHL Playoffs Pool 2012

    2012 NHL Hockey Playoffs Pool:

    Introduction:
    Considering that we have a decent number of NHL Hockey fans in the community, it seems only fitting that we host a NHL Hockey Playoffs Pool. The pool consists of three parts.

    Step 1: Fill Out Your Bracket

    Eastern Conference:
    (1)New York Rangers vs (8)Ottawa Senators
    (2)Boston Bruins vs (7)Washington Capitals
    (3)Florida Panthers vs (6)New Jersey Devils
    (4)Pittsburgh Penguins vs (5)Philadelphia Flyers

    Western Conference:
    (1)Vancouver Canucks vs (8)Los Angeles Kings
    (2)St. Louis Blues vs (7)San Jose Sharks
    (3)Phoenix Coyotes vs (6)Chicago Blackhawks
    (4)Nashville Predators vs (5)Detroit Red Wings

    Your objective is to now successfully fill out the bracket. Begin by selecting the winners of the first four series in each conference. In the NHL Playoffs, unique to it alone is that after the first round the teams are reseeded. You will need to account for this reseeding in your selections. Here is an example:

    Let's say I select (1)Boston, (2)Washington (5) Carolina and (6)Pittsburgh. Then in the next round I would have Boston playing Pittsburgh and Washington playing Carolina.

    In other words the highest seeded team(the lowest value) will play the lowest seeded team(the highest value).

    In addition to selecting each of the winners, you are to attempt to predict the number of games in each series will last. IF you are correct, you will earn an additional point to your score.

    Scoring:
    Part 1 Scoring:
    Each Correct Conference Quarterfinals Series Prediction[2 pts] [16 max]
    Each Correct Conference Semifinals Series Prediction[4 pts] [16 max]
    Each Correct Conference Finals Series Prediction[8 pts] [16 max]
    Correct Stanley Cup Prediction[16 pts] [16 max]
    Total Possible: 64 points

    Step 2: Select your Team

    Your team:
    LW:
    RW:
    C:
    D:
    D:
    G:
    Enforcer:

    Rules for your team:
    1. You may only select ONE player from each team. In other words, your team needs to consist of 7 different players from 7 different teams.
    2. Your player at each position must be listed as such on ESPN. In other words you must have a LW as your LW.
    3. Once you make your selections, your team is final. You will not be repicking your team throughout the tournament.

    Scoring:
    Position Players:
    -1 point for each point(goal, assist)
    -You will also either gain or lose points based on each player’s +/- Rating. This value is cut in half, rounded down.

    Goaltenders:
    -1 point per win
    -2 point bonus per shutout

    Enforcer:
    -You will gain points based on the number of penalty minutes divided by 3, rounded down.

    Part 3: Tiebreakers
    Tiebreaker 1: Number of Goals scored in the Stanley Cup Finals[ALL GAMES]
    Tiebreaker 2: Number of Goals scored by the Eastern Conference Team in the Stanley Cup Finals
    Tiebreaker 3: Number of Goals scored by the Western Conference Team in the Stanley Cup Finals

    All Entries for the NHL Hockey Playoffs Pool must be completed by the night of the first game of the NHL Playoffs which I believe is Wednesday, April 11th. If you have any questions about how the pool works, let me know.

    Good Luck!

    Shit I missed the boat. I also missed out on a pool I paid $50 for because I had to drive an extra 23 hours to get home on Tuesday so I guess this isn't AS bad.

    Needless to say the Wings getting stomped by Nashville ruined my enjoyment of this weird year. This is what I posted after I watched the Wings blow it in Nashville:

    Pretty tough for me to say considering that the Red Wings this year set the record for most consecutive home wins in a season, but honestly, I don't remember the Red Wings playing as poor of a series as they did in this one. Give the Predators a ton of credit for playing well, but the Red Wings looked slow, played sloppy and lost this series due to horrendous puck control and way too many turnovers.Matter of fact, I'll even go so far and say that this was the worst series from the Wings since 2000-2001 when they were a huge favorite over the Los Angeles Kings and got stunned. I'd say they played worse in this series compared to that year they got swept by Anaheim.
