2020(?)-21 Game predictions Challenge


Recommended Posts

Back for another year! But what a year.

Every game that has an impact on the Habs standings in the Eastern Conference needs a prediction.

The Magic Number for the Habs making the playoffs is the driving power behind all this. This thread is the sideline bit of FUN and even has its own playoffs after the season is done.

"What do I do?" I hear you ask:

  • Predict the result for games in which Eastern Conference teams are playing;
  • Score points daily for the highest number of correct predictions;
  • Climb as high as you can on the Scoreboard;
  • Finish in the Top 16 to progress through to the Post-Season;
  • Beat your head-to-head opponents in each round of the Post-Season; and
  • Win the Stonely Cup

Current holder of the Stonely Cup: Habs Rule Forever
 

The following points make my life a little easier:

PREDICTIONS RULES/ Conventions/ requests:

1: Have fun;

2: Please be clear about your predictions (cryptic clues don't help as I might not understand them);

3: Post predictions in the order the games appear on nhl.com's schedule;

4: Only make predictions for games in which Eastern teams are playing;

5: Have fun;

6: Predictions are for the result in regulation (i.e. win for either team or a tie);

7: Predictions must be made before the puck drops (I do check game stats for exact times if there's doubt);

8: Have fun;

9: Please don't predict games too many days in advance as I'm likely to miss your post;

10: Have fun;

11: Eerm... That's it apart from the final one:

12: Have fun.

If there's any doubt, my decisions are final...

(ish)...

(within reason)...

(bribes are accepted)...

(but not acted upon - I just like the idea of bribes. Only one person has ever sent me something and he won that year)

By the way, I know I've said it before, but do have fun.

 

:D

Ok. I don't get this though. We're in the north this year so I'm throwing in Vancouver for the win.

We're currently in lockdown. So the new normal is "great". But I do get to go out as I volunteer at the local vaccine centre when not working. So I still get to see real people face-to-face even if not my work colleagues or friends.

 

As for the trophy, it's all gone online and virtual. Here you go:🏆

 

😁😆

I'd subscribe to the Economist but I'd never get around to reading it. Same for Der Speigel

I don't get it either. I understand how the NHL season and post-season will work. Trying to replicate that in this thread seemed weird. We could just focus on the North division and then go through to the post season. But only predicting on 7 teams would bore me - even though it makes my work here easier.

So I just went old school instead of reinventing the wheel.

Hope that's good with everyone?

:D

Question, Are we predicting based on the old Eastern Conference or the North Division? I only ask cause the only games that have any bearing on the Habs playoff chances are the North Division games. Therefore we should be predicting just for the North Division IMO.

Eastern Conference Predictions:

Washington vs Buffalo: Buffalo

Boston vs New Jersey: Boston

NY Islanders vs NY Rangers: Tie

Carolina vs Detroit: Carolina

Columbus vs Nashville Nashville

 

North Division Predictions:

Jets vs Flames: Jets

Vancouver vs Edmonton: Tie
