In the wake of the Stanley Cup finals and the build-up to the NHL Entry Draft, I completely forgot to post the final standings for the Nation Network’s playoff prediction contest.

After the jump, the final results.

Reading the comments at Oilers Nation, it felt like many fans voted for Boston with their heart rather than because they expected them to win. Either way, it turned out well for them. The decision to support Boston also looked good on Lowetide, who entered the finals with a one point lead and finishes with a remarkable 14 out of 15 prediction record (and don’t think he won’t rub that it).

Thanks to everyone for participating!

It seems the Canucks cost me a chance to contend for the title. Now I can hate them even more.

Unbelievable job LT. I havent seen that kind of prognosticative prowess since my Court Augur told me that the breakfast I would have this morning would be delicious.*

Well Mister Sir His Royal Highness Lowtide If you had bet 100$ on each of those series in Vegas where would you be now? And what would you be driving?

Those who bet on the Canucks at all are lucky they didn't get eliminated in the first round which would have happened had the Hawks shown up in one of the first 3 games..

Incidentally... where did the posts on the Smyth Signing and the Souray stuff go? They were there a couple hours ago and now I don't see them anywhere? What the????
