STONELY CUP PLAYOFFS (predictions game)2011/12

Once again, it's that time of year.

Who has been waiting for this thread to start?

Who has been practicing by trying to predict exactly how many rain drops will fall on a rainy day over the summer or how hard the wind is going to blow?

Have you kept an eye on the trades (or lack thereof) in an attempt to get your first predictions right on the button?

What will Winnipeg bring to the Eastern Conference party?

Will Toronto suck?

That last one is a trick question. Of course they will. They haven't not sucked since 1967 (and, even then, they sucked a little bit just because they're the Laffs)

Again, we have to dust off our thinking caps for every game that has an impact on the Habs standings in the Eastern Conference.

The Magic Number is the driving power behind all this, but this thread is the sideline bit of FUN.

First off, I give you THE DEFENDING STONELY CUP CHAMPION:

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

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

Can I also set down the following points and ask a few favours to make my life a little easier?

I present the (amended) PREDICTIONS RULES

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.

Ok?

:D

Just don't understand what all this big "I am" talk is all about. Don't you all know that possession is nine tenth's of the law. I have the records and the spreadsheet. I have the cup. It's mine.

HTL has already thrown down a glove. I looked at it with pity. All covered in old tape and falling apart. My gleaming new gloves are sharpened (?) as is my predictive ability. I will prevail, I will win.

That's all there is to it. You guys can fight for second place. Enjoy.

Muuuhahahahahaha

...oh, and I just noticed that the last season's thread got up to 4961 posts (as at today). Let's go for 5k this season.

:D

You better take something for that swollen head of yours. I'm pretty sure there's a cure for it. :lol:

I will be winning it all this year!

Alex Trebek: Let's start with French Stewart, who's grinning like an idiot. You look pretty sure of yourself, think you've got the right answer?

French Stewart: Yes, I'm pretty sure of it Alex.

Alex Trebek: Well, all you had to do was write a number, and you wrote..."Threeve". Combination of three and five, simply stunning. And you wagered... Texas with a dollar sign in front of it. I'm speechless
