Dooger has made his picks.

Dooger says:
Hawks in 7
Penguins in 6

He sees a rematch of the '92 finals between the Penguins and Blackhawks.

Dooger has 16 pts. right now...and I put him on his own team at the bottom. He's actually doing better than most of us...and is beating TSN's Maggie the Monkey...even though Maggie doesn't pick the # of games, he'd still be beating her. He's up 16-8.

Just realized that NOBODY on this board (unless you count Dooger which I don't) picked Carolina to beat Boston.

They nearly didn't, but wow.

Same here. Anybody ready for a finals rematch? :twisted:

I almost took Wings in 5, and after that first game, I'm really wishing I had. :ninja:

The critical question is, in a potential Pens/Wings re-match, will MAF be able to stay upright when he jumps out of the tunnel for game 1?

I'll get the results up through the conference finals soon.
In the mean time, get your picks in to me for the finals before the puck drops on Saturday the 30th @ 7pm central time.

Send your picks to: cprice12@letsgoblues.com.

DON'T FORGET TO PICK THE TIE-BREAKER...TOTAL GOALS SCORED FOR BOTH TEAMS IN THE FINALS. If you pick the total goals scored correctly, regardless if you picked the winner correctly or not, you'll get an extra 4 pts...that should make it interesting.

<< -- Start Copying Here -- >>
- Your LGB screen name:

ROUND FOUR:
STANLEY CUP FINALS
(2) Detroit (51-21-10, 112 pts)
vs.
(4) Pittsburgh (45-28-9, 99 pts)

- Winner & in how many games:
- Tie-Breaker...Total goals scored for both teams in the series:
<< -- End Copying Here -- >>

1st Tie-Breaker - Total goals scored in the finals
2nd Tie-Breaker - Most points in a round
3rd Tie-Breaker - Most winners picked overall
4th Tie-Breaker - Most correct "in how many games" picked
5th Tie-Breaker - Coin toss

Good luck guys.

Sweet, I got everything right this round except the # of games for the Pens. I hope the rest of Team Yellow did as well and we made up some ground. I begrudgingly picked the Dead Things for the Finals, ugh.

:detsucks: but they will probably win the :cup:

This is the strangest prediction I've gotten from Dooger yet:

[big d note] 11:16 am: Hi dooger
    [Dooger] 11:17 am: Thank God you're here! Some Wings fans were in here trying to have sex with me.
[big d note] 11:17 am: sheesh, you'd think they'd have better things to do right now
    [Dooger] 11:17 am: At this moment I have no idea what to say.
[big d note] 11:17 am: Why don't you say who you think will win the Stanley Cup?
    [Dooger] 11:17 am: Because you asked me to -- SHRDLHU.
[big d note] 11:17 am: SHRDLHU?
    [Dooger] 11:17 am: My brain uses AIML to format responses to your inputs, but I don't have one for that. Do you have any friends?
[big d note] 11:18 am: AIML?
    [Dooger] 11:18 am: A deeper algorithm is needed to respond to that correctly. Can you please rephrase that with fewer ideas, or different
thoughts?
[big d note] 11:18 am: Whatever. OK, you have two choices: Detroit or Pittsburgh.
    [Dooger] 11:18 am: Are you saying you don't care about it? We have never talked about it before. Are you free?
[big d note] 11:19 am: Which team will win the Cup? Keep in mind, we had this same matchup last year and Detroit won.
    [Dooger] 11:19 am: The tall one, I think.Chat amongst yourselves.
[big d note] 11:19 am: The tall one, hmmm. So you think the team with the larger overall height will win the Cup? Interesting logic.
    [Dooger] 11:19 am: Is that a fact.Interesting deduction. The ALICE chat robot can follow many things, like our discussion about YOU think the
team with the larger overall height will win the Cup the team with the larger overall height will win the Cup. But I did not get that. Do you speak
Spanish?I thought so too.
[big d note] 11:20 am: I'll have to check and see which one is the tall team. How many games will they win it in?
    [Dooger] 11:20 am: A deeper algorithm is needed to respond to that correctly. What are you wearing? Tell me a story. Do you have any idea
what I am talking about?
[big d note] 11:20 am: I never know what you're talking about. Will it go only 4 games?
    [Dooger] 11:20 am: Do you know anyone who has ever know what youapos;re talking about what youapos;re talking about?It could happen.
[big d note] 11:21 am: Really, a sweep by the tall team?
    [Dooger] 11:21 am: For real. I did not know that.
[big d note] 11:21 am: Is that your final answer?
    [Dooger] 11:21 am: What does "that" refer to?
[big d note] 11:21 am: Are you sure it will be a 4-game sweep?
    [Dooger] 11:21 am: I get it.
[big d note] 11:21 am: OK then. See ya Dooger.
    [Dooger] 11:21 am: Alright then.I see. Next question? Not many people express themselves that way. "I get it"? ?
[big d note] 11:22 am: Say good-bye Dooger.
    [Dooger] 11:22 am: "good-bye Dooger Dooger"


A sweep by whichever team is taller. Who wants to comb through the roster data and see which team has the greater average height?
