We had so much fun with this during the Columbus games, I thought we'd do a playoff version. This time we're going to do it a little differently; you pledge whatever amount you like (per game, per series, whatever) - if the Wings win, you pony up. If the Wings lose, so does Children's Hospital. We will do this for every playoff series this post-season the Wings are involved in.
I decided to pledge $20 for the series win, plus another $1 for every multi-goal game Franzen has. This will be my standard pledge for each series.
Anyone else in?
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Let's make this fun and interesting :)

-I'll pledge $10 for a series win.
-Extra $10 for a sweep.
-Extra $5 for every shutout.
-Extra $1 for every goal Hudler scores.

I'll use this as my standard pledge.

Question: Are we doing one for the post-season or is it a different one each series? (IOW, how often do we have to pay up?)

One-time payment once we have a total. :) I chose to pledge per series - you can pledge per game, per win, whatever floats your boat, but the Wings have to take the series for Children's Hospital to get the money.

Cool. I'll go $1 per win, plus $1 per goal for everyone I've had a hamster named after.

In the interest of full disclosure before the fact, here are the names of the furballs (active Wings bolded- will not pay for non-Wings unless they accidentally score for the Wings):

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Mathieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan


This could get expensive, but it's worth it.

I like this idea a whole lot. I'll do the same as you, Vladdy. $20 for a series win; but instead of Franzen, I'll pick Zetterberg for multi-goal games. He WILL be back, and soon! Hopefully, it'll be an impetus for him to get his butt and knee back in the game. :)

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

I like this idea... Does it go to the Detroit Childrens Hospital?

For every series the Wings win I will give 10x whatever Jimmy's playoff GAA is at the end and an extra dollar for every shutout he had in the previous series.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

Awesome idea, I'm always willing to participate for a good cause.

I'll go $15 if we win a series in 5 or 6, $20 if we win in 7 or $30 if we sweep.
$1 per multi-point game for Lids

How does this work exactly, do we send over our donation over to you Vlady16 at the end of the series (or playoffs?) I don't remember seeing this from the columbus games so this is new to me.

Yes, the money we donate will go to Children's Hospital in the name of LetsGoWings.com.
Everyone will PayPal me their donation when it is not possible to donate any more money under the terms of your pledge. I will donate one lump sum to Children's Hospital.

Awesome idea!

I am going for 100% team effort only, so no individual rewards. The better they play the bigger the reward. And winning the cup means a big bonus.

First round:
Winning the series in 7 games: $5
Winning the series in 6 games: $7
Winning the series in 5 games: $10
Winning the series in 4 games: $14

Second round:
Winning the series in 7 games: $7
Winning the series in 6 games: $10
Winning the series in 5 games: $14
Winning the series in 4 games: $19

Third round:
Winning the series in 7 games: $10
Winning the series in 6 games: $14
Winning the series in 5 games: $19
Winning the series in 4 games: $25

Fourth round:
Winning the series in 7 games: $14
Winning the series in 6 games: $19
Winning the series in 5 games: $25
Winning the series in 4 games: $32

When winning the cup:
$1 per goal for the total play-off goal difference (goals for minus goals against)
$5 per shutout for the total play-off shutout difference (shutouts for minus shutouts against)
$1 per point gained extra above 99 points in the regular season (so including the 100th point) --> so this would be a $5 bonus (104 minus 99).

So you know what to do Red Wings! :)

Edited by RippedOnNitro, 11 April 2011 - 04:44 PM.

First round series win: $0 () Second round series win: $0 () Third round series win: $0 () Fourth round series win: $0 () Goal difference: $0 (-3) Shutout difference: $0 (0) SHG difference: $0 (0) Extra points reg. season: $3 (102)

TOTAL COLLECTED: $0 TOTAL BONUS IF STANLEY CUP: $3

All righty! Put me down for:

- $10 for a series win
- $2 for every shutout (I mean if we shut them out, of course, heh)
- $1 for every multi-goal game Zetterberg has (I'm with Vladifan - he's gonna be back and on fiya!)

Welcome to the club, Vladimir316! O6, baby. :)

Thanks all for potentially donating to this very worthy cause and for hopefully lighting a fire under the Wings and Rangers.

Guess I'll hop in. I'm a poor student though so not gonna put up a lot, but let's say $5 for every series win and $2 for every Wings shutout.

I reckon that $52 will be a small price to pay for watching the wings sweep the playoffs 16-0 with 0 goals against :cool:

Series win: $10 (+wins = $20 total)
Win: $2.50


$2 for each goal Hudler, Modano, or Helm score
$5 for every SHG

((4/14) Edited series win and win for clarity), (4/17) Added Helm to the $2/goal since Modano has been scratched.)

$10 per series win
$5 per game with 0 PPG against
$0.10 per blocked shot


Also, $10 per fighting major :ph34r:

Any SHG against wipe out any game-specific totals. Maybe that's bad form, but I hate them as much as I hate losing.
