he probably only wants to win the Conn Smythe because there's a bonus that comes with it.

Reading through the recap at the bottom, that series would be epic. Except the losing part.

Im pretty sure that simulation doesn't take fatigue, injury or lack of current production into effect.

maf's .894 is barf city.


...if malkin and crosby have 10 points each in the series, the pens win the cup.

Well, I mean, we'll just have to wait a few more years to see I guess, since you know, they already said its going to be Bos vs. Chi in the SCF.

Can we simulate the GDTs? Or the post-game hysteria?

If that series went 7 games as predicted by the similation, with Crosby and Malkin each outscoring Hossa in the series, even in a loss, I don't see Hossa getting the Conn Smythe over two players who outscored him in the playoffs by 18 points. Though if Sid and Geno finish tied in the scoring at the end, tough choice between the two of them.

Similar computers used to calculate investment returns for GM and Chrysler? I beat Detroit 8-2 the other day on NHL 08, so I would say that is the game 1 score, right??

My 6 year old daughter and I lost to Carolina 8-6 the other night. Does that mean we didn't sweep them and the series is still going?

I just played the series out with this stupid thing, but it gave me Pens winning games 1, 3, 4, 6.

Pens in 6.

Hossa has showed up one game each series (game 4).

I don't give a crap about their simulation. He's not winning the Conn Smythe even if he has an Ovechkin/Crosby like series.

This is like predicting Fedotenko is going to win the Conn Smythe right now.

Good call. I agree. Tenks has 6 goals and 4 assists in the Finals, including 2 GWGs and wins it.

Aren't these the same people that simulated the playoffs and said the Bruins would win the cup?
