Well we're tied.. If Washington and New Jersey pull out wins we'll both look better.

I would almost like us to do away with the game #s in future years.. It should only be a tiebreaker.. I mean if you pick team A in 6 games and they lose in 6 games why should you get a point?


I don't think you do - you only get the point for the # of games if you pick the winner.

I know - but look at the points for WaukeeBlues - the first name - he got 9 points - if you add it up, you'll see that he did not get a point for the # of games he picked correctly for the Chicago/Calgary series, because he picked Calgary to win in 6 - just add it up, you'll see what he's done. Now whether that is correct or not, I'm not sure, I'm just sayin' ... :lol:

I'm just saying what the point totalts should be, not what they are :lol:

I'm not the one adding the totals and seeing what others have

Edit: Looking at his for the first time, 9 points is right

SJ/Ana--1 point for 6 games
Det/CBJ--1 point for games and 2 for winner
Cal/Chi--1 point for games
Van/Stl--2 for winner
Bos/Mtl--2 for winner
Pit/Phi--2 for winner

I think you only get the extra 1 point for guessing the number of games it went to IF you guess the team correctly.

I only looked at Blue scores and the 2 points for a win and 1 point for the games (no matter if they were right on who won or not)

I was never good at math and that is why I never bother with a checkbook

It should be 11 and not 9. Now you know why I don't run this or do the hockey contest anymore. :lol:

Should have gotten your picks in sooner. :wink:
I just grouped the teams based on the order I received the predictions.



And I'll check the formulas on the spreadsheet. It was a long night last night and I thought the formulas were right...but we'll see.

This is correct.

YOU ONLY GET CREDIT FOR PICKING THE # OF GAMES CORRECTLY, IF YOU PICKED THE WINNER CORRECTLY.

It's like getting a shot at an extra point as a reward for picking the winner correctly.
