Go Sens Go!!!!


Bring on the Smurfs!

My predictions on the Canadian series draft to see what network get what series:
1 & 2 (CBC): MTL-OTT, TOR-BOS
3 (TSN): VAN-SJS
4 (CBC): PIT-NYI
5 (TSN): WAS-NYR
6 (CBC): CHI-MIN
7 & 8 (TSN): STL-LAK, ANA-DET

Still looking up arena conflicts before I try to map out the schedule, but here's my predicted start dates:
MIN @ CHI: Wednesday (CHI can't host Game 2 Thursday)
DET @ ANA: Tuesday (ANA can't host Wednesday)
SJS @ VAN: Wednesday (SJ can't host Game 3 Saturday)
LAK @ STL: Tuesday (LA can't host Game 3 Sunday)
NYI @ PIT: Tuesday (for balance)
OTT @ MTL: Wednesday (give Ottawa two days break)
NYR @ WAS: Tuesday (for balance)
TOR @ BOS: Wednesday (give Boston two days break)

out west I expect a Tuesday start for DET @ ANA and LAK @ STL and a Wednesday start for MIN @ CHI and VAN @ SJS.
 
2013-04-28 10:28:28 PM  
Pittsburgh would've run roughshod over Ottawa or NYR.  Isles are toughest draw for Pens.  Young, fast talented team with quality goaltending.  They'll be playing with house money.  Dangerous.

The CBC will want VAN on their air. Either they work out a deal with TSN to get all 3 series or they let TSN take MTL-OTT

//hopefully an epic meltdown won't be far behind

As a Leafs fan, is it too much to hope his epic meltdown would involve something besides my team responding in kind?

/I lose either way, don't I?

Let me just suggest that we let the idiot bury himself. Don't bother provoking him because he will eventually do himself in.


Alright, I haven't been around for playoff hockey threads, but I might drop around this year for sh*ts and grins.  You seem alright around here, so let me ask (others feel free to advise as well): should I just block this guy?  I don't remember seeing him around yet, and I really hate blocking people.  (I've blocked one guy from the politics thread because I may break something otherwise, that's it.  I'm generally alright because what the hell, it's just Fark.) Is it amusing as all get out to watch him losing it, or not so much?

The only non divisional matchup in the east is Caps Rangers.

Well, his big thing is just outright attacking people. I've probably been his biggest target because I have the nerve to be a hockey fan in Phoenix, Arizona. You know, he's one of those guys...

That's kind of what I figured.  I'm pretty good at ignoring those people without a blocker, anyway.

But he's a Leafs fan?  I normally don't have a problem with the Leafs, believe it or not, but...this might be fun.

Well...I've only put one person on ignore personally on Fark, and his username is basically Catalytic.

Putting people on ignore might make your browsing of threads easier, but it takes the fun out of it.

I haven't missed anything since I put converter on ignore, but I really don't find it improved anything.


Then again, I am a drunk, argumentative asshole. So take what I say with a grain of salt.

I only have the one guy ignored, as well.  And I don't miss him.

Fark is full of drunk, argumentative assholes.  That's pretty much why I'm here.  I try to take it all with a grain of salt, and it's usually pretty entertaining.  (Unless it's the blocked guy.  Which is why he's blocked.)

I'll give this other guy a whirl, though.  (I honestly enjoy watching the sh*t fly around, anyway.  Popcorn, and what not.)

desertgeek: Yeah, but I actually have a NHL team here. That's what pisses him off.


He has a burr up his ass because you have a team in Phoenix?  Oh, he sounds like a hoot.  If I'm a B's fan, am I allowed to go take in a Bolts game, or is that verboten?

FYI: anyone who wants to see Habs-Leafs (or, like me, Habs-B's) in the second round needs to barrack for the Pens and the Rags in the first. I suspect the most likely thing to go wrong from this perspective us the Isles making Bergman and the NBC crew very sad.

Also, that Luongo meltdown was fun to watch last night. Cheering for the Oilers is about the dirtiest thing I could do, but when Lou shat himself in the third period, I couldn't help but laugh.

I hope Vancouver's playoff opener is exactly like their season opener, with one, or even both goaltenders completely sh*tting the bed.

Because I need a place for this...

The final NHL alternate points systems standings

1st, a note: I projected a minimum points number for each conference that would be necessary to make the playoffs this year. Because the average points total for the #8 seed in each conference in the shootout era was markedly different, the numbers in each conference was different. It was 53 pts for the East and 55 for the West. Well, the 8 seed in each conference ended up at 55 pts. Technically I was right in the East since the 9th place team (Winnipeg) ended up at 51 pts. And in the West, Columbus tied with Minnesota at 55 pts.

Forgive me for tooting my own horn for a bit.

Some bests and worsts of the season:

Most regulation wins: Pittsburgh- 31
Highest regulation win percentage: Chicago- .781 (25-7)

Most OT wins (non-SO games): Chicago and Columbus- 5 each (Chicago was 5-0)
Most games decided in OT: Columbus and Colorado- 8 (CBJ 5-3, COL 3-5)

Most Shootout games and wins: San Jose- 12 total, 8 wins
Most Shootout losses: New Jersey- 7 losses (2 wins)

Most OT losses (non-SO): Colorado and Florida- 5 (FLA 1-5)

Most regulation losses: Florida- 27

Fewest regulation wins: Florida, Nashville and Colorado- 11
Fewest OT (non-SO) wins: San Jose- 0-3
Fewest SO wins: Calgary and Toronto- 0 (CGY 0-3, TOR 0-5)

Total games decided in OT: 66 (35 in the West)
Total games decided in a shootout: 96 (55 in the West)

Comparison of points systems:

International 3 pt system- all 16 playoff teams are the same. Nine teams change positions, none of them division winners. Interestingly, the 4-5 matchups are the same (though flip home ice between LA and STL)

Revised 3 pt system- 14 of the 16 playoff teams make it. Division winners the same. San Jose drops out (too many shootouts) and Columbus comes in. Winnipeg and NY Islanders flip spots. (Note: for those who don't know, under this system last season; 15 of the 16 teams made it and the one that didn't lost on a tiebreaker since they couldn't take the very last game of the season to a shootout. That team? LA Kings)

Old NHL rules w/ties- See above, but with the exception that NYI drops to 10th and WPG goes to 7th. Oh, and Toronto wins the Northeast and the 2 seed.

(Thank god that's over)
