Stanley Cup

 

Here are the individual and averaged predicitions for the second round of the NHL playoffs from Dobber, Angus, Bugg, Ma, Miller, and more! The panel's consensus picks were 12-3 last year, and we boast an impressive 34-11 record over the past three seasons!

 

The first round featured a trio of upsets in the Eastern Conference. None of the 13 experts predicted the Montreal Canadiens over the Capitals. Only Ryan Ma foresaw the Flyers defeating the Devils, and only Ma, Matt Bugg, and Russ Miller saw the Bruins taking care of Buffalo. I was a horrendous 0-4 in the East, as I took a chance on the Senators, who fell flat in game six. Ryan Ma went 7-for-8 in the first round, and Bugg went 6-for-8. A few (myself included) are looking for redemption in round two! The panel's consensus picks went 5-for-8 in the first round.

Apparently, I'm not an expert Well, I'm not going to quit my day job and go into the prediction business. I'm 0-for-3 so far in the second round. I take some solace in the fact that my predictions matched TSN's Bob McKenzie.

Give me SJ I'm a Wings fan and I give them no chance of beating San Jose. I think the Wings are spent for this season and San Jose is being taken for granted.

As well as Phoenix played this season and in the playoffs, Detroit still should have had a much easier time with them.

I'll predict the Flyers to play the Sharks. The "Pronger Playoff Effect" means these aren't last year's Flyers.

looks right except for San Jose I like the picks, except for Detroit over San Jose. Nabokov got better as the series went on. The big three weren't scoring and the lower tiers carried the team. I worry about the D as Colorado proved San Jose vunerable on the break away. At a minimum you have to say a fight with 7 games required.

Let's see if the reverse hex works with my CHI/VAN pick...
