matdywer you may want to be a little bit more clear with your picks.
i think it's clear enough, the first team listed is his pick as indicated by the '>' sign that follows it.

BTW, to those who want to post picks .... there's no break in NHL action.

The Pens/Sens series and Kings/Sharks series start tonight! :razz:

For those that don't get the reference, see:

Draft Order

The 14 teams that missed the playoffs during the previous NHL season are awarded the first 14 picks. They draft in order of fewest points to most points, subject to the results of the draft lottery.
The current Stanley Cup champion picks last (30th).
The Stanley Cup runner-up picks 29th.
The other two Conference Finalists pick 28th and 27th.
Regular-season division winners hold the other lowest positions.
Remaining teams draft in order of fewest points to most points from the previous regular season.

Yeah, but I keep reading the second part of what he said, "Sens in 6, Bruins in 5...etc"


I can't post my picks for the Sens vs Pens game as the Pens are already up 3-1 on the Sens. And it wouldn't be fair. Putting that aside I was going to have the Pens win it in 6.


LA vs SJ ---> SJ in 6
NYR vs Boston ----> NYR in 7
Detroit vs Chicago ----> Chicago in 5

Well I got 6 out of 8 right with two of them being exact number of games! Not bad eh
I know its a bit late but o well its not like we are betting or anything...
Sharks/Kings game even though its 1-0 for the Kings, I say Sharks win in 7
Hawks/Wings.... is there any doubt who would win this one? regardless of Hawks being up 1-0 yeah I say Hawks in 5
Pens/Sens... same as above really, regardless of that series being 1-0 for the Pens, I was gonna pick Pens in 5
Bruins/Rangers.... After that hard fought series with the leafs I say they are tired. Besides, they didnt really dominate Toronto the way I thought they would so yeah Rangers in 6

So, This second round is --- > :( <--- , VCR only have a chance of getting one right prediction out of four.

Not too surprising, however, going with four underdog picks.

Penguins off by 1 game.
LA won in 7. Completely wrong.
Boston won in 5, completely wrong.
I hope detroit wins in 7, but chicago has lots of momentum right now.

This is awesome! Went an unperfect 0-4 in the second round going with my four underdog "hope to win" picks. This time, I'll make picks on who I actually think will win in the semi-finals:

Kings defeat the Blackhawks in six games
Penguins defeat the Bruins in six games

What say you?

I'm late to make my picks but I thought the penguins and blackhawks would be in the finals.

Lets just say both series will be over in 6 as well.

Wow! The interest in the Stanley Cup Finals is off-the-charts!!!

Anyway, here is VCR's Finals Prediction:

The 2013 (asterisk) Presidents' Trophy CHAMPIONS Chicago Blackhawks win The Stanley Cup in 6 games.

So, it looks like VCR has "won" RFD's Playoffs Pool finishing it off with a perfect prediction.

Uh ... so what exactly did VCR win here? :confused:
