Contest question for youse; conference final schedules

Posted By On May 14, 2011 @ 6:18 pm In Hockey,New York Rangers,NHL | 181 Comments

You never know when it’s the right time to go back to normal stuff in a situation like we’ve had today and last night.

But there is a hockey game tonight as the conference finals begin, and so I’m sure a lot of you are ready to get back to hockey here, at least for a while. So here’s a post that was going to go up this morning.


Calling all Boneheads. I need your advice on the last predictions contest … or I can just give first prize to Sally. But since she won the beard contest, I’d prefer to pick a winner for the last round of predictions.

Here’s the dilemma. One entrant picked all four series correctly. He failed to pick any tiebreakers, though.

Seven others had three out of four. Of those seven, nobody had the first tiebreaker (score of Boston-Philly clincher) correct, none had the GWG correct. So it would go to the final tiebreaker, closest to Boston saves.

So, in your opinion, do I declare the 4-0 guy the winner because he was alone at 4-0? Or do I disqualify him for not giving tiebreakers and go with the winner of the last tiebreaker among those who picked three series correctly?

I will await your opinions throughout this thread. Once a new thread goes up the decision will be made. I will add this: Both the guy who was 4-0 with no tiebreakers, and the guy who was 3-1 with the best tiebreaker are loyal regular Boneheads, for what that’s worth.

FYI, I had three of four correct also.
