Sheeps, do you get points for picking the right winner in each round, if your # of games is wrong?

You still get the points, but not the bonus point. Number of games serves as a tiebreaker of sorts, since many people will have similar predictions on winners, but they'll for the most part have diff't series in diff't number of games...

Last year I did it with bonus points and it was effective, the scores were really close but we had distinct 1, 2, 3 etc... without the bonus points it would have all been the same.

Tri, you know your predictions aren't consistent, right?

If these teams win in the first round:

1. Tampa Bay

2. Boston

5. Ottawa

6. Philadelphia

The second round will be:

Tampa Bay vs. Philadelphia

Boston vs. Ottawa

So Ottawa and Boston couldn't play in the ECF in that situation.

Unless the NHL changed the playoff format, that is.

I noticed a few people did that in their predictions so I didn't post mine cause I thought maybe i was doing it wrong. I thought the highest seed plays the lowest seed but at least 3 or 4 people had it different so I just didn't do it :) I guess I shall get posting now that I know I had it the correct way! :rolleyes:

Puddy, even though the Devils should be the three seed, Philadelphia is the 3 seed, not 6. Therefore, 1 and 5 and 2 and 3 would play, therefore making a Boston-Ottawa ECF final possible with how I've done it.

This looks to be a great playoffs, because there are so many scenarios in the East. I like Tampa coming out of the East, and Andreychuk getting his first Cup...

Quarters:

Tampa in 6

Boston in 5

Devils in 6

Ottawa in 5

Detroit in 5

San Jose in 6

Calgary in 7

Colorado in 6

Semis:

Tampa in 5

Ottawa in 7

Detroit in 6

Colorado in 7

Finals:

East:

Tampa in 7

West:

Detroit in 4

Stanley Cup Champion:

Tampa in 6

Can't wait for the playoffs to start. Now I am going to look back and see who everyone else has picked...

Did I write that? I think I was in bizarro world for a little while there. Sorry about that. My mistake.
