I'm about to start doing the tallying for the season. Tie breakers as declared at the beginning of this thread.


Get your bids in for tonight's game and your bids in for total games to round out the 1st and 2nd rounds of the Stanley Cup.


Back soon (or later) for the head-to-head matchups.

Oh, and the rules.

Well that was easier than thought.

We have a regular season Champion

On the tiebreaker, Regis 22 beat hatethoseleafs by a season percentage of 44.0% (248 of 563 predicted games) correct to 43.2% (241 of 558)


The other tiebreaker was for 6th and 7th places. I had 43.2% (189 of 450) correct and booboo mtl had 38.9% (197 of 507)


Well done Regis 22

So now for the post-season and the Stonely Cup Championships.




Everyone is predicting for every game

When making a prediction please indicate either the WINNER or a TIE. If you are predicting a TIE, please also indicate the O.T. winner. If correct on the OT winner, then you will be awarded a star with your score.

Head-to-head: You are competing on a one-to-one basis with your opponent. Higher number of correct predictions wins the point. If both tied, both get a point (unless tied on zero).

In the event that your opponent fails to make predictions for that night, then you will score the only point on the night if you get 1 correct.


In the event that, at the end of a round, two players are tied on points, then there will be a series of tiebreakers applied:

1: Post Season prediction percentages per round (or 1st and QF together) – higher takes preference

2: Number of Tie stars (see above)

3: Total number of games predicted to close out the round

For this last one, we need predictions of the number of games in total it will take to finish a particular round in the playoffs. So, in the first round, there are 8 head-to head matchups between the teams. If each one only takes four games, then that’s a minimum total of 32 games. If each matchup goes to 7 games, that’s a maximum of 56. In the Quarter Finals, there is a maximum of 28 and a minimum of 16. Total games for both rounds is a maximum of 84 and a minimum of 48. So we need a prediction between those two numbers from everyone. Higher placed seed takes preference and the higher placed seed's prediction will be rounded up or down to make sure head-to-head numbers are consecutive.

Please, therefore, PM your game number prediction to me before Sunday evening. If you are the lower placed seed and yours matches that of your opponent, I’ll ask you to try again.

Any comments, please say.

Good luck to everyone in pursuit of the STONELY CUP 

Let’s have some fun!

Didn't realize we had such outstanding tie breakers for the regular season.

Correct number of games total for the 1st round is 38.

Good luck to my thoroughly going to lose competitor HRF..
