Vulgar Statistics: Stanley Cup Playoffs Final Thoughts And BBG Playoff Pool Standings

06/12/12

I will be brief since I have no intention of rehashing what you all just watched.  Even though the Kings ran through a Sedin-less Canucks team, a Pietrangelo-hobbled and Halak-less Blues team, a Torres-less Coyotes team, and a Kovalchuk-hobbled devils team, the manner in which they did so proved that they clearly deserved to win the Stanley Cup.  A heartfelt congratulations to them, to their long suffering fans, and to Jeff Carter and Mike Richards.  RIP Los Angeles booze, you will be missed.

BBG Playoff Pool Final Results:

I’ll throw in the “experts” I tracked too just for fun.  A correct series pick garnered a win, an incorrect series pick garnered a loss, and an incorrect series pick of seven games in a series that did go seven games garnered a tie.

  1. @applepie716 – 39 (10-4-1)
  2. James Murphy – 35 (9-6-0)
  3. @MotzQuotes – 35 (8-6-1)
  4. John Buccigross – 34 (9-5-1)
  5. @PhilBBG – 33 (9-6-0)
  6. Craig Custance – 32 (9-6-0)
  7. Joe McDonald – 30 (7-7-1)
  8. @CriminallyVu1ga – 30 (7-8-0)
  9. Linda Cohn – 29 (7-7-1)
  10. @eduva16 – 29 (7-7-1)
  11. Pierre LeBrun – 29 (7-8-0)
  12. Katie Strang – 27 (7-8-0)
  13. Barry Melrose – 26 (7-8-0)
  14. Steve Levy – 24 (6-7-2)

  20. @CarlHatt – 17 (5-10-0) – missed second round

For the fourth consecutive year (I’ve tracked this), a non-expert has won.  Keep the streak rolling.
