3 people out of 38 (8%) chose the Devils to beat the Flyers.

5 people out of 38 (13%) chose the Coyotes to beat the Preds.

26 people out of 38 (68%) chose the Rangers to beat the Caps.

4 out of 38 (11%) chose the Kings to beat the Blues.

Doesn't look like Round 2 was good for anyone. Checking the spreadsheet, no one got more than 2 picks correct. By far, the most common prediction was Rangers, Flyers, Blues, Preds.

The form is up now on the main page.
Sorry for the delay. I meant to put it up yesterday but got busy with holiday things and ran out of time.

Why do I feel like there should be a place to guess the number of goals scored in the final on the linky? Am I mis-remembering something again? :lol:

Thanks for getting the next link up, Curt. And thank you for taking your time to get it all together.

I don't follow big Dan.
There is an option to guess the total goals scored in the finals.

And you are welcome. I just need to get around to writing the formula for totaling up the first few rounds.

Looking forward to seeing the results...and seeing our playoff "win" banner quietly fade away. :P

Was going to total them up tonight, but Google Docs was deleting the contents of cells in the spreadsheets when I would select them...which was a huge issue...and kind of scary.
I didn't lose any data, thankfully.
I found that other folks have had this issue...but I can't seem to find a solid fix...and folks have been having this issue for a couple years or so...with no real solution.
I have a couple of "maybe" fixes that I found...so we'll see.

One fix involves a BIOS update, but the updater tool isn't compatible with 64bit OS's, which is what I have (Win7 64). So that's not usable.

Very odd and irritating.
I'll get it fixed eventually and have the results posted as soon as I can.

I think the Stanley Cup Finals was the first time all playoffs that I selected the correct winning team in the correct number of games. I didn't do so hot overall but it was fun as always!

Sorry for the delay in getting this done.
I've been uber-busy at home and at work this week...haven't had much time at all.

But it's finally done.

And with a total of 24 pts. the winner is.....

philco_3

PGABluesFan also finished with 24 pts., but he failed to submit any picks for the finals and lost on the fact that he didn't submit a tiebreaker either. :doh:
So philco_3 wins on the tiebreaker.

This, of course, depends on the theory that my formulas are all accurate.
So double check your numbers guys. :lol:

A notable accomplishment is that TheoSqua guessed the Kings in 6 in the finals AND also got the tiebreaker exactly right...24 goals scored. Which netted him a total of 7 pts. in the finals. Very nicely done.

Congrats philco_3!
I'll get your bragging rights signature to you as soon as I find the .psd file for it. And now that I think about it...I don't think I ever made fbrocklen's winning sig from last year. :oops: :lol:
I'll have to do them at the same time.

Here are the final standings:

Not that it matters, but I thought the tiebreaker only counted toward your point total in the event of a tie for 1st place (like you and I had in 2010, Curt).

Congrats philco!

Um, I don't know why I don't have any points in two of the rounds...wondering if your formulas or data is missing?

Edit: cause somehow it's showing in two places on the list

Wow :aaaa: I thought for sure someone else would have done way better than 24 pts, I know those second round picks killed me.

19 points not too shabby especially considering I made my 1st round picks without even knowing who would be in the playoffs or who was playing who. Congratulations Philco

That's just amazing.

Your bias towards Oregon-based posters ever winning is as clear as Bettman's never letting a Canadian team win the Stanley Cup!!1!1!! It's obvious there's some sort of conspiracy at work here...
