The history is there...follow as the tradition returns!

WCHA Pick 'Em 2018-2019

Postby TalonsUpPuckDown » Fri Sep 28, 2018 4:55 pm

WCHA Pick ‘Em 2018-19

Once again I'm running the WCHA Pick 'Em thread over on USCHO. A number of AZZ folks did exceptionally well last year, keep it up! Rules are basically the same as last year:
  • 3 points for a win (regulation or NCAA OT)
  • 2 points for a shootout win (WCHA conference games only)
  • 1 point for a shootout loss (WCHA conference games only)
  • 0 points for a loss (regulation or NCAA OT)

For OOC regular season and specific tournament games, there will be the option to pick a tie which will be worth 3 points if the game ends in a tie at the end of the NCAA OT period or zero points if either team wins.

Periodically there will be a bonus question (or two...) worth 5-10 points.
Only NCAA-sanctioned games will be counted (no exhibition games).
Click the link, fill out the form, submit your picks (don’t forget to click Submit).
Top 16 make the playoffs. More on that later.

Three awards are up for grabs:
McNaughton Cup – Regular season champion as determined by total points (2017-18 winner – SweeneyHawksHockey)
Mason Cup – Highest regular season points percentage (based solely on picks) (2017-18 winner – SweeneyHawksHockey)
Jeff Sauer Trophy – Playoff champion (2017-18 winner - Wi.HuskiesFan)

Good luck!

I'll post week 1 results after tomorrow's game.

We currently have 41 contestants plus the USCHO beat writer for the WCHA. If we maintain this number of regulars I'll re-evaluate the cut line for the playoffs (currently at 16) to keep it interesting for more folks.

16 games are on tap for week 2 with lots of match-ups that can go either way. Week 3 will see our first crack at the bonus question so make this week count.

Week 1 results are in. Congrats to 5 co-winners who are starting the year with a bang: potternmu, Laker Dude, Jbakerifm, Bronco Hockey Fan and <3Blizzard win the initial round of kudos. Reminder there are a ton of games on tap for week 2 so plenty of chance to scramble the standings. Speaking of standings, technology issues are forcing me to post week 1 results going the old school route. Will work on that for week 2.

Week 2 is in the books with tri-winners Bronco Hockey Fan, GoNanooks, and TalonsUpPuckDown each posting a whopping 36 points. This stellar showing was enough to provide Bronco Hockey Fan a 3 point lead over potternmu. But it's early. And week 3 brings with it 11 tough matchups and our first bonus question.

Week 4 sees the WCHA season start in earnest; 8 league matchups on tap. No bonus this week.

I'll post week 3 results after our Tuesday game with Western.

The winner of week 3 with a total score of 37 points is last week’s leader Bronco Hockey Fan whose lead is extended over GoNanooks, SweeneyHawksHockey, and Laker Dude. 23 players pocketed at least 1 bonus point this week, but only one player correctly picked 64 for the number of goals scored this weekend…yep, Bronco Hockey Fan.

Don't forget to get those week 4 picks in. Long way to go here.

Gotcha. I always take the latest entry anyway in case someone goofs or wants to change their picks. Will use your 10/24/2018 9:01:43 entry.

The week 4 co-winners with 30 points (10 out of 12) were jbakerifm and..."WCHA Pick’Em -Week 4" who has to be wondering why they didn't submit entries for Weeks 1 through 3. Mini stick tap to mbenecke who was the only player to correctly pick the OSU-BG tie. Bronco Hockey Fan's lead holds steady while GIWAN currently has the lead for the Mason Cup (minimum of 33 games picked).

Another slate of 12 games for week 5 so no bonus.

The week 6 winner was potternmu who correctly picked 11 of the 12 games this week and pockets a whopping 33 points. The only thing standing in the way of perfection was an apparent inability to pick a Tech sweep. Rivals can get in your head in so many ways. The pack creeps a little closer to Bronco Hockey Fan who has had a stranglehold on the lead since week one. Only 5 bonus points separates BHF from SweeneyHawksHockey with GoNanooks, beaverhockeyfan, and potternmu making up ground this week. And while we're on the subject, the bonus is back for week 6 with a 10-pointer.

Week 6 is in the books, here's the recap:

1) crossjcek, jbakerifm, Local_Husky, and Mavsfan19 were the quad winners this week posting a total score of 21 points
2) Turns out the bonus was tough as <3_Blizzard (5 points) and BGHockeyFan94 (2 points) were the only players to pick up bonus points (total OOC SOGs this week was 188)
3) Bronco Hockey Fan's lead is down to 2 points over SweeneyHawksHockey and 3 points over GoNanooks
4) GIWAN is now in second place for the Mason Cup trailing SweeneyHawksHockey by .001 percentage points

Hard to believe that 1/3 of the games have taken place already.

No bonus this week.

Week 7 is in the books, the tri-winners this week with 30 points are Deejpuck, Mavsfan19, and TalonsUpPuckDown. No movement at the top of the standings as all the contestants picked the same teams this week.

Bonus returns for week 8 (and the next couple of weeks).

Week 8 results will be posted after Tuesday's Northern Michigan/Notre Dame game. Summary: no one is going to catch John J. MacInnes this week but he'll have to wait for Tuesday night for it to become official.

Another bonus this week, note that we're looking for total penalties called this week (not total penalty minutes). Good luck!

Week 8 results are in and both BGSURICK and John J. MacInnes correctly picked the winners of all 9 games this week. However, by pocketing an additional 5 bonus points, John J. MacInnes is the week 8 winner! There were 111 total penalty minutes on Saturday, the following 8 players pocketed bonus points:

Code: Select all
Hatch_man          7
<3_Blizzard        5
John J. MacInnes   5
crossjcek          3
Hockey John        2
Deejpuck           1
Soulbeaver         1
TalonsUpPuckDown   1

At the top of the standings, Bronco Hockey Fan surrenders the lead for the first time all year to SweeneyHawksHockey. Only seven points separates the top 4, and only one game separates the top two in the chase for the Mason Cup.
