# Stanley Cup Playoffs contest - WE HAVE A WINNER!!!!!!!

## Recommended Posts

Starting with next round, I am running a contest for the rest of the NHL playoffs. The contest is simply to give your predictions for the quarterfinals, semi-finals and finals. Points will be awarded as follows:

Quarterfinals - 1 point

Semi- 2 points

Stanley Cup- 4 points

Rules:

1. Once the first round is over, I will post all the matchups for the quarterfinals. Once I do that, you can start posting your predictions.

2. You can make edits up to when the puck drops at the start of the first Quarterfinal game. Any edits made after that and you will be disqualified.

3. Winner is whoever gets the most points. Tie breakers will be determined by the number of total goals scored during the Stanley Cup finals. Whoever comes closest to the total. (this is not like the price is right, you can go over the total). If still tied, winner drawn from a hat.

4. I am going to give an example post to show what I want your guesses to look like.

5. Winners get to choose between some really good stuff. Valued at around \$20- \$30

6. Contest is open to everyone.

No, he won't be disqualified, but you have to put all your predictions before the quarterfinals start. This includes the Semi finals and Stanley Cup and total goals.

Oh..so I have to include the semi-finals based upon who I think will be playing or do I wait for each series to end first then put my picks. I was basing it on how the football ones were done.

You are probably right. Either way, this contest is going to be over depending on who wins the Ottawa - New Jersey series.

Well I didn't get to win the contest but hopefully the NJ Devils win the cup like I hope. I used to live in NJ and remember what they were like the first few years. I even went to a few games.

Glad to see that they are doing so well after struggling all those years ago.

You and I were the only ones to pick NJ to win. I am glad that they won for the third time. Now I am routing for the NJ Nets but I don't think they can beat the Spurs.
