NHL Bracket Challenge for 2019

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Having spent many a day at Canterbury Downs, These PO's with such a clear cut favorite in Tampa Bay reminds me of many races with a 3-5 Fav. Not worth even betting but ripe for an upset. 

Question is who?  and when?.  So, Why not?.....

Hope this works, I just did a screenshot of my picks the first day NHL.com put up the bracket.

Btw, LOL...Disregard the typo in "goals scored"😜 because you know #4 is so close to the #9

I really DIDN'T want to pick Tampa to win..... because the favourite rarely ever wins the Cup.  I just couldn't select anyone else over Tampa because nobody impressed me among the remaining teams. It's really Tampa and everyone else. If there was anyone even remotely close in points it might have been intriguing, but there was no good reason not to select Tampa to win it all.  :)

FYI. I made a small change. I picked St. Louis to win Game 7 over the Jets in Winnipeg. I have 3 first round series going 7, Vegas over San Jose, NY Islanders over Pittsburgh, and the previously mentioned Winnipeg-St. Louis matchup.

My theory is, unless the team's name is the Washington Capitals, I almost always go with the team that dominated the regular season like Tampa did.

I hear ya. I always look for an upset early hence me picking Carolina to upset the Caps. But like Bill Murray said...

It was good but, It just wasn't great ...So I went after the Bolts.:P The East overall is so much stronger, I figured if it happens it'll be there.

I'm dying to pick a Canadian team to win it all, but I just can't do it. It's a shame. No Canadian team has won a Cup since 1993. Hard to believe.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the last time a Canadian team entered the Stanley Cup playoffs as the favourite to win it all was probably the ~1989-90 Edmonton Oilers?  (Somewhere around there.)

 

Even that Montreal team that won in 1993 was an average playoff team. They weren't a juggernaut during the regular season. 

 

Unless I'm missing someone. Where did Vancouver finish during their Cup final season? How about the Sens from ~2007?

Can I change my bracket?????  😏

 

I feel the same. I knew Pittsburgh/New York was a gamble, and I'd probably lose on that one. I had no idea Tampa was going to disappear in round one. Makes you wonder how they feel about their regular season now. Probably something along the lines of "why bother". 

 

A team that dominated the league for 82 games is about to be eliminated by a team that shouldn't even be in the playoffs to begin with.
