2012 Stanley Cup Playoff Pool

The rules are simple:

1. Assign each of the playoff teams to a number. That number, in points, will be awarded to you for every game that team wins. Each number must be used once and once only.

2. That's pretty much it! There will be no editing or redistribution of points or teams once the puck is dropped for the first game of the Stanley Cup Playoffs!

To reiterate for clarity: The number 1 spot is the team for which you will get only a single point for every win, NOT the team you expect to be champions. The team you expect to win the most games (16) should logically be the one to have the highest number of points assigned to it (16) per win. The points are cumulative across rounds.

For Example: If you assign a team 12 points and they are eliminated from Round 1 in seven games, you still get 36 points for the games they won. (3 * 12 = 36 points)

If that team were to be swept out of the Stanley Cup Finals, you would receive 144 points from that team for their 12 wins.

If the team to whom you assign 1 point wins the Stanley Cup, you only get 16 points for those 16 wins.

3. The entrant with the most points wins! In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by a shootout.
