2019-20
NHL
Tipping Comp


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

Rules:
  1. One point for a correct tip. Ties are no longer possible in the NHL, as after a five minute overtime period, a shootout is played.
  2. Deadlines will be at the start of the first game noted in US Eastern time (FT+2 first five and final four weeks, FT+1 all others), most of which fall at 1pm Eastern, however, all weeks are noted. Only the first week has a late start of 7pm this year. There is a week that the first game starts at 12:30pm Eastern, 30 minutes earlier than normal.
  3. Default is equal to the higher of Wooden Spoon or six.
  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 the last several years, we will not tip the midweek games around the All-Star weekend.
  7. If a tipper fails to lodge for four consecutive weeks, they will become inactive.


Bonus points:
  1. One point for picking a result solo, or one of two, provided 12 tippers apply.
  2. One point for picking 12 or more of 15. 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.

Hi I've been a member of FunTrivia for two years and have recently just joined the forums I hoped I could have tried the Rugby World Cup, but as that's well underway I was tempted to do the football but that's a round Robin, then I saw NHL I know I missed today but hope I could start from next week on will that be okay with you.

Round One is still open for another 3 hours.

The first game hasn't started, which is the deadline for the NHL comp.

Thanks for the heads up I've submitted a prediction whether or not I made it in time for face off. If not then so be it, but I hope I can join next week if that's possible. PS. I noticed that Tampa Bay Lightning and one other team are down twice, do they have two teams?

You gotta to use BOLD text to show which teams you are tipping

Llynfi, for the NHL games, there may be times that the same team plays both Saturday and Sunday (or if a game happens to fall on Monday night). They do not split the team between two different games. Also, your tips are in time, since the first one started at 7pm EDT. Yours came in before that. Welcome to the tipping comps as well! smilee

I missed getting my tips in this week somehow, but that's what happens when you have forty-eleven things to do...so I'll be on the list as a defaulter this week, gaining six points only (or wooden spoon if higher).

While bolding is much preferred, the way Llynfi has done it is fine for me, as the teams they have picked are capitalized.

Just to help, Llynfi, using bold like this is preferred. Just use the [/b] and [b] tags in reverse of how I've done it.

Thanks for the reply it was very useful I've submitted week two and it looks fine to me, if not please let me know. I did try and do it by bold and in colour but couldn't do it, although I could write in colour. Once again thank you for your help

Thanks for the reply and info, I did realise after I had sent the message that I went to the FT clock and saw I still had over an hour to go. Also thanks for the advice I have registered for week two I believe I've got it right. Thanks again.

FunTrivia.com NHL tipping competition, aka, let's see who wins the most brawls on skates:
  • Welcome to the 2019-20 NHL competition! We welcome Llynfi to the competition, but lost ElfTwinkle, so we stayed stagnant at 13.
  • dg_dave is noted here as he tipped in Week 2.
  • Not starting out as a runaway, as we are all within four points to start.
  • Seven folks take bonuses, with ozzz2002 taking two.
  • Will the Blues repeat as Stanley Cup Champions, or will someone new take it? We shall find out next spring!
Just remember: Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept. (LeoDaVinci)

Comp Notes
  • Default is higher of Wooden Spoon score or six points. 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 12+/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
