2020 NHL Fearless Playoff Predictions – Stanley Cup Final

2020 NHL FEARLESS PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS

At last, we find ourselves at the Stanley Cup Final – the Dallas Stars versus the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Here are the final questions we posed to our staff here at SiriusXM NHL Network Radio…

 

  1. Which team (Dallas or Tampa Bay) wins the Stanley Cup?
  2. Pick the correct number of games the series will go (point only awarded if you also pick the correct team to win the series)
  3. Which player will be awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy?

 

Remember, there are 3 points awarded for correctly picking, BEFORE we got going in late July, which team would win the Stanley Cup this time around.

 

Steve Kouleas picked Tampa Bay

Gord Stellick picked Tampa Bay

Dennis Bernstein picked Tampa Bay

 

Here is this year’s unique point system; 68 points would constitute a perfect score.   (Under our “normal” scoring system, 46 points was the maximum one could achieve. Mike Lippa set the record with 36 points back in 2016).

 

  • 1 point for correctly choosing the winner of each Play-In Series
  • 2 points for correctly choosing the 1st place finisher in each round robin group
  • 1 point for correctly choosing the winner of each 1st round series
  • 2 points for correctly choosing the winner of each 2nd round series
  • 2 points for correctly choosing the winner of each 3rd round series
  • 3 points for correctly choosing the 2020 Stanley Cup winner
  • 2 points for correctly choosing the 2020 Conn Smythe winner
  • 1 point for correctly choosing how long a series goes, but only if one also correctly picks that series’ winning team
  • 3 points for correctly choosing the 2020 Stanley Cup winner before the playoffs begin
  • 3 points for correctly choosing the 2020 Conn Smythe winner before the playoffs begin
  • 2 points for correctly choosing which team gets to draft first in the 2020 Entry Draft
