    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.

    So because I dont think the Bruins can beat Detroit, Im not a Bruins' fan? How childish are you when someone cant make a prediction that goes against you?? I said it before because I believed it. Why wouldnt I believe it now? Your reaction is what's "pathetic."

    Hmmm... "look stupid?" Said they would lose to massive underdog Caps- correct.

    Said last year that their habit of blowing third period leads would end their playoff run... see Games 1 and 6 of Final- correct.

    (definitely stupid in the overreaction to their character after all the blown leads... but not wrong in the last 2 playoffs Ive been slammed over).

    So... if the Bruins were like Dallas and I said Anaheim would beat them, Id be patheitic because I said they would lose?

    I think if you are going to have a pool, you need to say that you cannot "be a Bruins fan" if you don't pick them, no matter what, even if they have lost to that team 7 of of 8 times.  Tell us the fanboy/ private club rules.

    I don't care if you are such a baby that if someone picks a speed/skill team in that series you will throw a tizzy. If Detroit wins I won't be surprised.  If Boston wins I'll be pleased... oh, and you don't get to tell me I'm not a B's fan, nor do you get to tell me I can't come back.

    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

    Lol I know, right?


     


    We're the only one's who are looking at the team honestly and objectively.  Deficiencies on D, a pattern of late GLG's, erratic goaltending in big games, youth on the backend;  It doesn't exactly inspire confidence.  Especially when they're facing a team like Detroit who make it a habit of dispatching better teams in the playoffs.
