2022-23 Predictions Challenge (Win the virtual Stonely Cup)

Recommended Posts

As always, same text below from previous seasons. Same rules. Same players? Same winner?

Current holder of the Stonely Cup: campabee82

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

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 - calling the Penguins "Birdy doo-doo" doesn't help me - but is amusing);

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...


(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.
