    >>King/Queen of the Forum - the official playoff pool 2014 edition<<

    UPDATE: Picks due by Wednesday, April 16 at 7pm et/4pm pt (Start of the Habs-Bolts series).

    For those who are new, we have a little fun every year picking the winners of all playoff series here on this thread. 45 posters played last year. Link to final results below. Be bold. Make fun of those who are awful at this. Tell us why you make your picks. I'll track and send updates on the leaderboard throughout. Picks open as soon as the games end late Sunday and we know the full matchups in the West.

    Last year, we had some great consistent efforts by the likes of goodnewsbears, Ronstar and a late push by Shupe, but in the end it was those with correct predictions in the SCF that rose to the top. mattymcgee took the title. He held steady in RD1 and RD2 then came through with the call in the Finals to eek by dc-bruins-fan, ThatHockeyGuy and moogfan35 for the win.

    Scoring

    You all know the drill.... for round 1, you need to guess the series winner and # of games it'll take for all 8 matchups. Also, don't punk out if you tank the first round. The points awarded increase every round, so anyone who stinks it up early can still win in the end. To recap the points awarded...

    Round 1

    10 pts for correctly guessing series winner

    +5 for correct # of games

    +25 pt bonus for perfect guess of all 4 series per conference

     

    Round 2 (Eastern and Western Conference Semis)

    20 pts for correctly guessing series winner

    +10 for correct # of games (winner only)

    +50 pt bonus for perfect guess of all 4 series

     

    Round 3 (Eastern and Western Conference Finals)

    40 pts for correctly guessing series winner

    +20 for correct # of games (winner only)

    +50 pt bonus for perfect guess of both series

     

    Round 4 (Stanley Cup Finals)

    80 pts for correctly guessing series winner

    +40 for correct # of games (winner only)

    +50 pt bonus for perfect guess of total # of goals scored by Eastern Conf Team

    +50 pt bonus for perfect guess of total # of goals scored by Western Conf Team

    Boston in 7 - Probably come down to points from the point, 3rd line advantage and goaltending.

    Montreal in 6 - Balance scoring and goaltending.

    Pittsburgh in 5 - Matchups up n down are horrible for Columbus.

    Philly in 6 - NY gave up a bulk of their grinders in the Nash trade.

    Minnesota in 7 - Duchene out not sure how healthy he will be.

    Chicago in 6 - Just not sold on the Blues offense.

    Anaheim in 5 - Almost went sweep.

    LA in 7 - Quick can dominate games, Niemi cannot.

     

    Or just go opposite of Bookboy's picks!

    Bruins in 6   Rask is the Key.  

    Ligntning in 7  Stampkos has his day(s).  Vanek will have an injury. 

    Pens in 6      4-0 series loss to the Bs did not sit well

    Rangers in 7  Flyers need a goalie.  St. Louis will be on a mission.  

     

    Avs in 5     Wild would be a winner but not in goal.  

    Blues in 6  Blues ride Miller and solid defense.  

    Ducks in 5  Seguin will have a hell of a series.  

    Kings in 7   Jumbo will have a hell a series.

    Now I need to know...asmaha, who did better last year?  Me or Sandog?  Honestly, I can't remember if I was in on it or not.  Either way, I guess I now need to bring all of the analytical powers of Bookboy Analytics and Research (BAR) to bear on this in order to crush Sandog.
