We're just about done with this tire fire of a season, and normally this is about the time where I get geared up for PPBT.

Here's the thing though: This place is dead right now, and things typically get even quieter once the calendar flips over to May. I'm not sure we have enough people around to make a proper game of this.

So rather than presumptively post the whole thread that I usually do, I figure I'll just ask:

Who wants to play this year?

If there's enough interest, I'll happily set it up as per usual in the next few days, but I suspect that there might not be.

Kind of presumptive of you to suspect such lack of interest by the way..... :roll:

Says the first guy to say he's not in! :P

It's more a lack of bodies than anything. We've had a few key folks go by the wayside towards the end of this season, and it's not like we had all that much activity to begin with.

As for the HF idea, I don't see myself joining another board while this one still exists. I think I'd get myself banned pretty quickly. Had a quick look at that board and they've got a "Will Gaudreau/Monahan surpass Iginla?" thread going that made my eyes bleed a little when I read some of the responses.

some of the responses were blatant bait to get that idiot moon to overreact. But some are pretty stupid, we can give you a primer on who to put on ignore right out of the gate :lol:

Probably not, but I get where you're coming from.

I've been put off message boards in general for the last month.

Incidentally, I think the magic number would be 5. If we can cobble together five players in the next 60 hours, we'll be good to go. If not, perhaps we can just make series predictions for fun.

happy to make predictions for fun. It'd be more fun if moved somewhere that included more players. We could have a sidebet (friendly or monetary) for fh.ca members only if you wish.

But yes, I'd play for series predictions, just not for the daily questions.

I think maybe this should be cancelled this year? Personally, I seem to be busy all the time and the season sucked.

Then we are decided.

But for the heck of it, here's what I think.

EAST:
Atlantic

#1 Panthers vs WC1 Islanders: Islanders in 7
#2 Lightning vs #3 Red Wings: Lightning in 6

Metropolitan

#1 Capitals vs WC2 Flyers: Flyers in 7. Sorry Ovenchicken.
#2 Penguins vs #3 Rangers: Penguins in 5.

WEST:
Central
#1 Stars vs. WC2 Wild: Stars in 4.
#2 Blues vs. #3 Blackhawks: Blues in 7.

Pacific
#1 Ducks vs. WC1 Predators: Ducks in 6
#2 Kings vs. #3 Sharks: Kings in 5


Islanders over Lightning to win the Atlantic.
Penguins over Flyers to win the Metropolitan.

Stars over Blues to win the Central. (Draft pick acquired)
Ducks over Kings to win the Pacific.

Penguins beat Islanders in the East Final.
Ducks beat the Stars in the West Final.

Penguins win it all.
