NHL 2014 - The Quest For The Cup

Recommended Posts

I'm picking against the team I picked to win the cup at Christmas because, really, who can throw their lot in with the Sharks and feel secure.

Call them by their correct name.

I'm sure dropping in a rookie into the playoffs after not playing for half a season will work out fine.

I don't have time to set it up this year. Somebody else feel free to take the reins.

I forget the format. Did we go round by round? Was there bonus question points?

Round by round and bonus questions. The new format allows you to do a single bracket due to no reseeding after each round however, so you can just go all March Madness on us and do it that way. Apologies on not letting people know earlier about not doing it this year!

 

Here's a jpeg of the bracket:

Man, the west is going to be a tough slog other than that Avalanche/Wild series.

Am I the only one who doesn't like that the two rounds are for all intents and purposes still intra-division?

 

I always liked that the playoffs in any sport meant you could play anyone not the "Oh great - 7 more games against these guys!"

I think it's the league's way of intensifying divisional rivalries. I don't mind it. Heck, I wouldn't have minded it even less with the old, easy division for the Nucks.

I liked the old days when you had to "get out of your division" to advance.

I think the new format sucks, but it does make it easier to run a bracket challenge for the playoffs. :)

 

Speaking of which, work computer won't let me play around on nhl.com, so I will set up a DVDVR playoff challenge when I get home tonight.

I'm perfectly fine with the new bracket set up. I refuse to acknowledge that the reason is that if we were using the previous tournament set up, we'd be playing the fucking Kings again.

The bracket setup helps for TV scheduling.  At least that's what the NBA has always claimed as their defense for not re-seeding after each round.  Hopefully they start series right away instead of having these extended breaks while we wait for one series to end.

Okay - what is going on in Philly that the Rangers/Flyers have a three day break in between Games 3 and 4?

 

(Meaning that, if necessary, Games 6 and 7 are on back to back nights - the only series with that schedule)

They actually moved a Miley Cyrus to a day earlier for the game 3 date. Have no idea why game 4 is 3 days later but it works for me because it's a Friday so I don't have to worry about work the next day.

Amusingly, the Blues series is delayed a day due to a Miley concert as well. Actually works well for us, but Miley is fucking all our plans up.

They were going to move the concert but they realized that plan wouldn't twerk.

To top this all off, Miley Cyrus is sick, and cancelled her concert for tonight.
