Did you hear about the retired proctologist? He spent 40 years saying "what's a place like this doing in a girl like you?"

I apologise wholeheartedly for being absent yesterday . . . basically crying in my beer, as I am sure you can all understand and empathise with.

I will give everyone that one game advantage, and allow entries up until 7pm today for their second round predictions.

Will update the standings soon folks.

First off,
a HEARTY CONGRATS!!! to FatElvisRocks, who pulled off the very first (in the history of this site, to my recollection) 100% correct 1st round prediction, with a solid 4 tie-break points as well, to build up a nice lead. Great stuff bud, I really hope you entered a bunch of hockey pools this year, should have some winners this season! Gipper wasn't far off with 7, and overall, it was a high scoring round - with yours truly not making the cut for the first time ever, and of course I would have made it had my Leafs not blown a 3 goal lead in the third and lost it in overtime in Game 7. But I'm not bitter!!! .

Here were the standings:

PLACE___CONTESTANT_____POINTS____TIE BREAK PTS
1_________fat elvis rocked_______8_________4
2_________The Gipper__________7_________2
3_________mandree888________6_________2
3_________The Duke___________6_________2
3_________sharksfan44________6_________2
6_________sahis34____________6_________1
7_________Leafs81____________6_________0
8_________Guest 8629_________5_________4
9_________HawkinOilCountry____5_________2
9_________Alex116____________5_________2
9_________umteman___________5_________2
-------------------------------------------------------------------
12_________Guest 4779________4_________3
12_________JOSHUACANADA____4_________3
14_________slozo_____________4_________1
14_________Beans15 __________4_________1
16_________Statman___________4_________0
16_________OILINONTARIO_____4_________0
18_________nuxfan____________3_________0

The bottom 7 below the line are eliminated, and the rest move on to the 2nd round.

NOTE: I had to go back and add Guest 4779, who I had initially missed in the first accounting. Unfortunately, he was still the first cut and didn't make it to the 2nd round, with no other placings getting changed thank goodness.

I'll stick with my initial post saying it all counts until 7pm tonight, so you are good - at that point, you will all have to believe me when I say that I didn't even look at who made it or didn't, I was just just concerned that a healthy dose of people had not put their picks in in time due to my negligence.

All your picks stand, and we now wait for sahis34 and we'll have all the 2nd rounders in.

AFTER ROUND 2, the STANDINGS - please note that 2nd round points were added onto the first round totals.

1 fat elvis rocked 12 4
2 umteman 9 3
3 mandree888 9 2

Incredibly, Fat Elvis Rocked goes perfect again! Amazing and unprecedented . . . he should be winning every hockey pool this year I reckon, great stuff bud, and congrats - you are building a lead that is becoming nearly impossible to overcome at this point, but we'll see how your picks go from here on in, and whether it gives the other guys a chance to catch up.

Those under the line didn't make the cut, sorry . . .

. . . but I now need YOUR third round picks boys!

mandree888

CRAAAAAAAAAP!!!
I forgot that 2nd round picks are worth 2 points, hold on a second fellers . . . let me do a recalculation!!!

Here are the REAL after 2nd Round Standings, apologies about my first posting - 2nd round correct picks should get 2 points each. I have left my initial post up, so you can all see the difference it made:

PLACE / NAME / PTS / Tie Break Pts.
1 fat elvis rocked 16 4
2 umteman 13 3
3 mandree888 12 2
3 sharksfan44 12 2
5 Leafs81 12 0
6 Guest 8629 11 5
7 HawkinOilCountry 11 3
8 The Gipper 11 2
9 The Duke 10 3
10 Alex116 9 3
11 sahis34 6 1

I struggled with the cut-off line, but don't like making the cut-off on tie breaks, so . . . I opted for 11 points and up to move on, and so only The Duke, Alex116 and Sahis34 who never put in his picks are eliminated.

Get 'yer 2nd round picks in gentlemen! Deadline is . . . 5pm EST Saturday, June 1st.
(I will be away all day on the Saturday, but will check the time stamps on Sunday when I update everyone's picks)

Good luck, and remember - 3rd round correct series winner picks get you 4 points, and in this round, a correct series length for the right winner gets you 2 bonus points.

And they look to be two absolutely awesome series, so I do expect a lot of different opinions!

Darn! I should have picked the Blackhawks. Or rather should have checked fat elvis's picks first. We picked the same two teams so it is impossible for me to catch him - if I am right so is he.

Wouldn't you know it, leading late in the game, looks to be all but done, moving on, a chance to acheive glory.....and it all goes to pot!!!!

And my picks were bad too!

Sorry Slozo, couldn't resist a dig on your team on the way out of the game! Thanks for running this! Had I picked even 1 of the finalists, I could have had bragging rights for the summer for sure!

Good luck to those who move on!

Didn't do the math FER, but looks like you're still leading, or maybe tied for the lead with Leafs81?

Way to give 'em all a chance.....

Points are CUMULATIVE, meaning, Fat Elvis is definitely still in it. You did have a 4-1 lead in the third, but now it's 4-4 with the outcome to be decided on a coin flip in OT!!!

The standings after the conclusion of ROUND 3:
PLACE-NAME-------------POINTS-----TIE BRK PTS
1----fat elvis rocked---------16------------4
2----mandree888------------16------------2
3----Leafs81------------------16------------2
4----Guest 8629-------------15------------5
5----HawkinOilCountry-----15------------3
6----umteman----------------13------------3
7----sharksfan44------------12------------2
8----The Gipper--------------11------------2

As you can all see,
no one got all correct, and just to make it super exciting, Fat Elvis got both his picks wrong.

For the FINAL ROUND,
Picking the correct Stanley Cup winner will get you 6 points;
and picking the correct series length for that winner will get you an extra 5 bonus points . . . which could, in fact, turn out to be crucial here, the difference between winning and losing.

Please submit your picks as normal . . . I honestly don't see the point now of anonymous submissions, as there is such a tiny chance of the top three guys all picking the same (fat elvis, mandree and Leafs 81) for Guest 8629 and Hawk inOil to have a chance to win . . . they might just be picking for pride, or to finish second, so I thought, give them the chance to do so knowing the other guy's picks.

You know the deadline - Wed night 8pm EST.

Get'em in boys!

Oh Good Gravy,

I forgot the whole thing is cumulative, and that means I still get a pick!

I wonder if Boston isn't the team of destiny this year, or are they that good!

I will go against my better judgement and pick Boston in 6 games.

I don't think us "westerners" are exactly slagging the Bruins or are down on them. Let's face it, i haven't seen anyone saying that Chicago will crush them in a 4 game sweep!!! With all due respect, Chicago did impress pretty much everyone ALL season and have won the same number of playoff games to date! They're as balanced as anyone and actually, believe it or not, have the goalie who leads the playoffs in GAA with a 1.74 mark (yes, Rask is at 1.75, but my point is that Crawford's been very steady in these playoffs). If all that isn't enough for you, how can you be even remotely surprised that ANYONE, not just us westerners, is picking Chicago when they not only have home ice advantage, but they're the oddsmaker's favorite's in this little place called LAS VEGAS! Trust me, we may not know our stuff, but those guys certainly do.

ETA....2456 - i reread your post and if you meant "like" as in simply liking the Bruins as a team, then disregard all my westerner reasoning as to why some of us are "picking" them. Though, for the record, i still don't like the Bruins at all.

I know it's off topic (sorry Slozo), but I don't understand the comment about "westerners" not liking the Bruins? (Technically, I actually do "understand" the comment. I just don't agree with the comment.)

I'm a longtime fan of the game (with many hockey fan friends), and in my experience, people just don't cheer that way.

Most people have a favourite team (usually their hometown team), and after that, people pick a variety of different teams to cheer for. (When their team is not playing or eliminated.)

I've never noticed an abundance of "westerners" defaulting to a western team in the finals. Or fans who cheer against a team from the east just because they're in a different conference.

In fact, I've noticed more "westerners" cheering against a team from their own conference, and usually because of an existing rivalry which exists in their favourite team's division or conference.

Once again, sorry for getting off topic, but I just wanted to address the point about "westerners" cheering against the Bruins, a point which has been brought up a few times, for which I don't see the merit.
