Welcome to year 5 of the Playoff Picks Game.

Past Champions List
2007: zetterisbetter
2008: winsgnut_19
2009: Chunkylover
2010: Batigol2k
2011: *Insert Your Name Here*

The format this year is the same as last, so please to make sure you fully understand the rules below before making your picks. For those of you that aren't familiar with the game, here's how it works:

Each round you will pick a winner for each series. For every correct series winner you predict, you will receive 4 points for the first round matchups, 8 for the 2nd, 12 for the 3rd, and 16 for the Finals (0 if you pick the incorrect team, 3 points if you picked a 4-3 series and the other team won in 7 games). Also, to aid with tiebreakers you will pick how many games the losing team in each series will win. Given that the team you picked to win actually does win the series, you will then have the opportunity to receive up to 3 bonus points. For every game you are off for the losing teams actual win total, I will subtract 1 bonus point. After each round, every player will then re-pick again based on the teams that made it through to the next round. Whoever has the most points at the end of the season, wins Playoff bragging rights. As was mentioned earlier, if you pick a series to go to the 7th game and the series does but the team you picked ends up losing, you will receive 3 points rather than 0. Lastly, pick who you feel will represent each conference in the Stanley Cup Finals as well as the Champion. This will be worth 3 points per pick if you're correct.

Best of luck to everyone!

If any of your are confused, here's a mock Picks example:
(1) Vancouver 4-2 over (8) Chicago
(2) San Jose 4-2 over (7) Los Angeles
(3) Detroit 4-1 over (6) Phoenix
(4) Anaheim 4-3 over (5) Nashville
(1) Washington 4-0 over (8) New York Rangers
(7) Buffalo 4-3 over (2) Philadelphia
(3) Boston 4-1 over (6) Montreal
(5) Tampa Bay 4-3 over (4) Pittsburgh

WC Champion: Detroit Red Wings
EC Champion: Tampa Bay Lightning
SC Champion: Detroit Red Wings

Let's say this happened in the first round:
(1) Vancouver won 4-1 over (8) Chicago
(7) Los Angeles won 4-3 over (2) San Jose
(3) Detroit won 4-1 over (6) Phoenix
(5) Nashville won 4-3 over (4) Anaheim
(1) Washington won 4-1 over (8) New York Rangers
(2) Philadelphia won 4-2 over (7) Buffalo
(6) Boston won 4-3 over (3) Montreal
(5) Tampa Bay won 4-0 over (4) Pittsburgh

Here's how my point total would work out:
VAN/CHI = 4 Points + 2 Bonus Points
SJS/LAK = 0 Points
DET/PHX = 4 Points + 3 Bonus Points
ANA/NSH = 3 Points
WAS/NYR = 4 Points + 2 Bonus Points
PHI/BUF = 0 Points
BUF/BOS = 4 Points + 1 Bonus Points
PIT/TBL= 4 Points

Total first round score: 31

Feel free to post any questions, and remember that your Picks must be in *before* the first puck drops Wednesday at 7:00 ET.

Here are the Matchups based on their respective ranks:
WEST:
(1) Vancouver Canucks vs. (8) Chicago Blackhawks
(2) San Jose Sharks vs. (7) Los Angeles Kings
(3) Detroit Red Wings vs. (6) Phoenix Coyotes
(4) Anaheim Ducks vs. (5) Nashville Predators
EAST:
(1) Washington Capitals vs. (8) New York Rangers
(2) Philadelphia Flyers vs. (7) Buffalo Sabres
(3) Boston Bruins vs. (6) Montreal Canadiens
(4) Pittsburgh Penguins vs. (5) Tampa Bay Lightning

NOTE: Please copy and paste the following template when making your picks. This truly cuts down on the time it requires to tally up scores and I greatly appreciate it. Bold the team you're picking to win, and then write the series score directly after in this manner: -- VAN/CHI 4-1

Round 1 Template:
________________________________

VAN/CHI: 4-
SJS/: 4-
DET/: 4-
/NSH: 4-
WAS/: 4-
PHI/BUF: 4-
BOS/MTL: 4-
PIT/TBL: 4-

WC Champion:
EC Champion:
SCF Champion:
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Are we only doing 1 round at a time but predicting the final champions? Or should we expand to further rounds already?

EDIT: fixed template made it easier on you.

EDIT: fixed template made it easier on you.

We do one round at a time but also pick Conference & SC Champions up front to add a little something extra to the game. There will be another thread for the subsequent rounds once each is completed.
