2011-12
NHL
Tipping Comp


The NHL season is just under two weeks away. Come one, come all and tip your way through the NHL!

Rules:
  1. One point for a correct tip.
  2. Deadlines will be at the start of the first game.
  3. Default is equal to the number of away wins each week minus 1, or wooden spoon score, whichever is lower.
  4. Tips not in by the first game's faceoff will receive default score.
  5. We will tip 15 games each weekend (all Saturday** and enough Sunday/Monday to equal 15).
  6. As per last year, the midpoints around the All-Star weekend will not be tipped.


Bonus points:
  1. One point for picking a result solo, or one of two, provided 12 tippers apply.
  2. One point for picking 13 or more of 15. There were enough weeks last year that earned a near miss bonus, and this year's comp will determine next year's eligibility.
  3. Tippers will be ineligible for bonus points if they tip all homes/all aways or all bar one.


**Christmas week's games are Friday and Monday.

FunTrivia.com NHL tipping competition, aka, let's see who wins the most brawls on skates:
  • Welcome to the NHL comp! We have thirteen tippers this year taking the ice. Wait a minute, that's too many on the field...oops, that on the ice, not tipping the ice; there can be as many as we want tipping! Will N-Bomb break his 24 point bonus? Will George95 be third again? These answers will be revealed in time...
  • Last year's default has changed, and because N-Bomb's score was only three, this year's default was also three.
  • N-Bomb was going out on a limb on several, but none bore fruit as he takes the first Spoon of the season.
  • No shows from last year are KrivoyRog and themonarch. No new tippers this year. frown
Just remember: Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept. (LeoDaVinci)

[color:"orange"]Comp Notes
  • Default is the lesser of r-1 (road wins minus one) or wooden spoon score. Late starters will enter the comp alongside last place
  • 1 bonus point for picking a result solo ... or one of two, provided 12 tippers lodge tips for the round
  • bonus pt for perfect picks, or near miss 13+/15
  • Tips of all homes (or all homes bar one) or all aways (or all aways bar one) are NOT eligible for bonus points
  • Dead-heats : Weekly wins vs wooden spoon countback will determine podium finishes (if they are identical, bonus points will be used)
  • Deadline : Drop of the puck of the first game each round ... default score will apply if tips are lodged after the 1st game has started

FunTrivia.com NHL tipping competition, aka, let's see who wins the most brawls on skates:
  • N-Bomb starts his bonus point barrage with two this week. He only needs 23 more to break last year's total.
  • Last year's default has changed, and because triviapaul's score was only three, this week's default was also three.
  • Ozzz2002 shoots up with his eleven correct, and toocool4u, who takes the lead, was the only other double-digit scorer this week.
  • Early season usuals...only two tippers kept their positions from last week.

FunTrivia.com NHL tipping competition, aka, let's see who wins the most brawls on skates:
  • Illiniman14 not only picked up the weekly win, he also ties with toocool4u for the top spot.
  • N-Bomb picks up another bonus point with his tip of the Blues winning in Philly.
  • Winnipeg won, and while four picked it, I'm sure the Canadians are celebrating.
  • Columbus is still winless, like our cellar-dweller, but Columbus hasn't picked up "bonus" points.
Just remember: Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept. (LeoDaVinci)

FunTrivia.com NHL tipping competition, aka, let's see who wins the most brawls on skates:
  • Both srini701 and triviapaul pick up the weekly win with 11 and make toocool4u wonder how they didn't get it with their ten...these three are the only ones to score double digits.
  • Ottawa needed to be at home; it made them win. Although losing to a team after 65 minutes of ice time and shooting penalty shots isn't so bad.
  • Four games saw three people tip correct, but since it wasn't one or two, no bonus points were awarded.
  • Paper_aero continues his descent of the table after picking up his second consecutive spoon.
Just remember: Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept. (LeoDaVinci)

[color:"orange"]Comp Notes
  • Default is the lesser of r-1 (road wins minus one) or wooden spoon score. Late starters will enter the comp alongside last place
  • 1 bonus point for picking a result solo ... or one of two, provided 12 tippers lodge tips for the round
  • bonus pt for perfect picks, or near miss 13+/15
  • Tips of all homes (or all homes bar one) or all aways (or all aways bar one) are NOT eligible for bonus points
  • Dead-heats : Weekly wins vs wooden spoon countback will determine podium finishes (if they are identical, bonus points will be used)
  • Deadline : Drop of the puck of the first game each round ... default score will apply if tips are lodged after the 1st game has started

FunTrivia.com NHL tipping competition, aka, let's see who wins the most brawls on skates:
  • The only double digit scorers this week are our weekly winners, paper_aero (after 2 straight Spoons) and Sypher.
  • Sypher and N-Bomb both pick up a bonus point for picking Phoenix to win at home. Who'd have thought a team from the Southwest would beat a team from Canada?
  • Tippers are starting to bottleneck together. Places four, seven, and nine are all ties.
  • N-Bomb has the lead in bonus points with four. Is anyone else willing to challenge him for most bonus points?
Just remember: Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept. (LeoDaVinci)

FunTrivia.com NHL tipping competition, aka, let's see who wins the most brawls on skates:
  • The only double digit scorer this week was our weekly winner, N-Bomb. He had his dartboard working overtime!
  • Only three players scored over 50% this week, and our strike rate was a low 42%.
  • The players that scored five are breathing a sigh of relief as gtho4 scored just four, giving him a Spoon to add to his collection.
  • N-Bomb has the lead in bonus points with eight after jagging four this week! Is anyone else willing to challenge him for most bonus points?

FunTrivia.com NHL tipping competition, aka, let's see who wins the most brawls on skates:
  • BxBarracuda moves ahead of the pack with a decent score and leaves Sypher in his dust.
  • Triviapaul must have known some of the outcomes sicne he scored 11 and only one other jagged ten or more.
  • Several bonus points went out this week, as three games were tipped by two...that leaves N-Bomb's percentage of total bonus points as a smaller number.
  • N-Bomb went default, and scored only five as the lower of wooden spoon and road - 1 was five.
Just remember: Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept. (LeoDaVinci)

[color:"orange"]Comp Notes
  • Default is the lesser of r-1 (road wins minus one) or wooden spoon score. Late starters will enter the comp alongside last place
  • 1 bonus point for picking a result solo ... or one of two, provided 12 tippers lodge tips for the round
  • bonus pt for perfect picks, or near miss 13+/15
  • Tips of all homes (or all homes bar one) or all aways (or all aways bar one) are NOT eligible for bonus points
  • Dead-heats : Weekly wins vs wooden spoon countback will determine podium finishes (if they are identical, bonus points will be used)
  • Deadline : Drop of the puck of the first game each round ... default score will apply if tips are lodged after the 1st game has started
