2012 SCF NHL Playoff Challenge

http://i379.photobucket.com/albums/oo231/SkidSTL/contests/scfpochallenge.jpg


The rules are simple. Very similar to a March Madness Pool but with reseeding each round, underdog bonuses, and NO Bracket Busters! That's right - even if you pick all losers in the 1st round, you get to start new in the 2nd round!



Post once in this thread each round
Deadline for 1st round entry = 11:00 am (EST) on SUNDAY April 15th 2012
Deadline for 2nd round entry = 8:00 pm (EST) on FRIDAY April 27th 2012
For subsequent rounds, deadline for entry - 1 hour before the scheduled start time of the 1st game of the respective series. So if the first game of the 2nd round is shceduled to start at 6:30 pm EST, the deadline for that round will be 5:30 pm EST.
Do NOT edit your post or you will be disqualified

Scoring:
First round series wins are 3 points
Second round series wins are 6 points
Conference final series wins are 9 points
Stanley cup series winner is 18 points
Picking the underdog gives you BONUS points!!
For example, if you correctly chose the #8 seed to beat the #1 seed you would receive 7 bonus points (8-1 = 7) in the first round
In the 2nd round the bonus is mulitplied by 2
In the Conference Finals the bonus is mulitplied by 3
For the Stanley Cup Final the bonus is multiplied by 4


Example on how to post your picks:
Western Conference:
Vancouver
St. Louis
Phoenix
Detroit

How Scoring would work:
Round 1 Western Conference:
1v8: pick Vancouver & Vancouver wins = 3 points
2v7: pick St. Louis & San Jose wins = 0 points
3v6: pick Phoenix & Phoenix wins = 3 points
4v5: pick Detroit & Detroit wins = 4 points 3 + (5-4 = 1 bonus)
West Round 1 points = 10

Prizes will be announced shortly - but rest assured, they will be nice!!!

Good luck everyone - and most importantly, HAVE FUN!!!

1st post has been updated with the 1st round point totals. NO ONE picked a perfect bracket!!! If someone had, it woul have been worth a total of 40 points!

Current 1st place leader, MattMDC missed 2 correct series winners, but they only cost a possible 3 points each leaving 34 total points for the 1st round!

Currently in 2nd place, Fleury14 came closest to the perfect bracket- choosing all series winners correctly except for WSH vs BOS, missing out on a big possible 8 points for 32 total points for the 1st round!

Like our current leader, current 3rd placer Klesla97 also missed 2 correct series winners - one of which was the NJD vs. FLA which cost a possible 6 points besides the other possible 3 leaving 31 total points for the 1st round!

hazmatman, polamalu43favre04, & pwhite81 are all tied up currently in the 4th spot with 29 points each while bgggg2001 & jayer round out the top 5 points totals with 26 points a piece!

Be sure to check out the first post to see all the current standings - if you think I made a mistake in any calculations, please send me a PM letting me know where I erred - hey, I'm human :-)

It's still anyone's game as there are lots of points to be had in the next three rounds! Good luck everyone - have fun!

Sorry guys - yes it's still going on. I went on vacation and had oral surgery recently. I'm currently in a lot of pain and quite hobestly running at about 50% mental capacity with all the pain meds Im on. I hope to get egetything updated in the next day or two. I dont trust my math skills in my state right now. Thanks for your patience...please bear with me.

The first post has been edited with the results of the 2nd round. NO ONE picked the Devils! So if you exclude them, polamalu43favre04 had a perfect round! jayer and late-comers udprospect and xelloss1012 all came in with 24. After 2 rounds the OVERALL standings look like this:

I had hoped to get at least the next round completed tonight, but I've started to make sleepy mistakes. I'd rather not post up wrong info and make folks any more upset than they might already be, so I'm heading to bed shortly and will finish up tomorrow.

I'd like to apologize for letting this slide, but I'd also like to offer you a quick explanation. As I mentioned before, I had oral surgery and that pretty much knocked me out of mental condition for a while. Then my father unexpectedly was put in the hospital and had emergency surgery to place a stent (shunt?) in his aorta to relieve pressure from an aneurism they found. If any of you have an ornery stubborn Dad like mine you'll understand this...after his surgery we had to stay with him to make sure he didn't check himself out of the hospital against doctor's orders - since he felt they "weren't doing anything" for him any more. So that has pretty much kept me away from the site for a while.

Again, I apologize that I haven't been able to keep up, but sometimes things happen out of our control.

As far as the prizes go, I have it in hand, but you'll have to wait just a bit longer - sorry!
