The Playoff Prediction Project, Round 2

Jonathan Willis

The first round of the playoffs is over, and it was a doozy. The best part is, there are three rounds to go, and the hockey isn’t likely to get any worse as time goes on.

After the jump, it’s time to make Round Two predictions.

Round One predictions can be found here. Scoring is as follows:

  1. Best series prediction record (length excluded)
  2. Tie-breaker one: Most accurate prediction in the Stanley Cup finals (winner and length)
  3. Tie-breaker two: Highest number of correct predictions (both series and length)

Writer predictions are below, and will, be updated as they come in:

Writer VAN/NSH Games S.J./DET Games WAS/T.B. Games PHI/BOS Games
Davie VAN 6 S.J. 6 WAS 5 BOS 7
Drance VAN 6 S.J. 6 WAS 7 BOS 6
Gregor VAN 6 DET 5 WAS 6 PHI 7
Lansky VAN 5 S.J. 6 WAS 4 BOS 5
Lowetide VAN 6 S.J. 7 WAS 6 BOS 7
Steinberg VAN 6 S.J. 7 WAS 5 BOS 6
Wanye NSH 6 DET 6 WAS 7 BOS 7
Willis VAN 6 S.J. 6 WAS 6 PHI 7
Wilson VAN 5 S.J. 7 WAS 6 PHI 7
Consensus VAN 8-1 S.J. 7-2 WAS 9-0 BOS 6-3

I’d like to invite everyone who participated in Round One to chime in below with their predictions; the contest is open until puck drop of Game One.

Whats crazy is the Consensus from RD 1 was 100% accurate.

If only we could somehow meld the nation minds into one SUPERMIND -1

(the supermind is -1 because the mind of Wanye is included.... so almost super)

I'm pretty sure my terrible 1st round can only be made up for with BOLD (stupid) predictions in Rd 2.

Nashville in 6

Detroit in 7

TBay in 6

Boston in 5

I hate the Canucks so much.

Gawd,I had to listen to Van/Chi game 7 on radio. 5 minutes was all I could take; no wonder the fans are mindless Zombies. What a terrible homeristically slanted broadcast. Yeech!

Van-Nsh: Vancouver in 5. They just got a whole tribe of monkeys off their collective back.

SJ-Det: Detroit in 7. This should be the best series of round 2.

Wsh-TB: Washington in 6. The Caps seem to have figured out the whole playoff thing.

Phi-Bos: Boston in 7. There is a very good chance that every single player in this series will be suspended by the end of it.

i believe this so called "tribe of monkeys" returns after they get donkey punched by SMASHVILLE!

betty white has a stronger back than loungo he couldnt carry her jock strap! he will carry them no where!

The thing I really have to love about hockey is that any one of us could be right. If this was Basket ball 90+% of the time you could predict the series and be right. Man I love this game Its fans and every thing about it. Canada's gift to the world is truly awesome.

Extremely windy out this morning in Hamilton.

Chicago was Van's best chance at loosing until the third round, and I fear their third round opponent, whichever of those two it is, is their only other chance at loosing.

Van 6; SJ 7; Wsh 5; Bos 6
