So…anybody want me to do another NHL Stanley Cup Playoff Pool again this year? Speak now, or I’ll do what half the other teams that didn’t make it are planning on doing this summer and…

…by that, I mean golfing, shopping…worrying about still having a job for next year… You know, what all multi-millionaires think of! :D

Anyways, I thought I’d ask about this before attempting to make a topic in the next few days (or not) and just see how much interest there is for this before the playoffs start in another week or so, so I don’t spend the next couple of hours of my life putting up something only for no one to care about it and I could have used that precious time for something else…like watching cat videos or banging my head over the coffee table. But, I digress...

So, just for clarity sake and all that, I’ve been doing NHL Stanley Cup Playoff Pool threads on RMN for three of the last four years now...with me missing the last one due to some real life issues on my side of things and all that. (...Damn real life issues! Why can’t you just go away!?) And now, I want to make another one just in time for this year’s NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs starting, I believe, on April 10. And although I haven’t been on RMN as frequently as I would like to be lately, I thought I couldn’t just let the team down again and go another year without another pool happening (considering kentona and I still have YET to win one yet *cough* *cough*), so here I am! Trying to make another one.

Anyways…if we are going to do one again this year, I’ve decided to change the format a little bit and take GreatRedSpirit’s idea and just have us all pick our first round matchup’s first, then the second round matchup’s, then the conference finals, and then the finals… The point figures will still be the same as before; 2 points for picking a team to win that series; 1 point if that team that you pick in a series loses but you still successfully predict the correct number of games that the series goes to; and 4 points for predicting both the winner and correct number of games in succession… Annnddd, of course, you get 0 points for failing on both things, which is...to be expected.

You’ll still have a Stanley Cup team that you pick at the beginning of the playoffs that will doubles your points for whatever series' that team is involved in, like what we did back in 2016 and 2017 when we first implemented it, but that pick cannot be changed at all throughout the entire playoffs, unlike all the other matchup's, so you'll need to be extra, extra sure that you've talked to your clairvoyant in the last little while and gave them enough money to make sure that “they’re the one”.

And, if I can convince Liberty that it’s okay with her (she probably will), instead of having one achievement on the line this time around, we might have a total of four this time. Four!!!

What achievements are those? You'll just have to find out.

Anyways, if you guys are interested, or wanna implement some more changes or things before the playoffs start this year, just let me know before then, okay? Hopefully we get a lot more participants this time around.

sure.

but what I am going to do is make my real predictions, and then do the complete opposite because I am always like 95% wrong.
betting it all on red! (calgary flames that is)

my money is on Tampa rolling over the league.

so obviously they are going to choke in the first round, since I am always wrong.
So it sounds like a go then! I’ll start preparing the thread and post it up once all of the playoff matches have been decided by the end of the weekend, alright?

I’m only somewhat worried about Tampa if they have to play somebody like Columbus in the first round, because that series could probably go either way. If they have to play Montreal or Carolina though, then...it’s probably all good in the hood (…I think.)
