HHT "Experts" vs SportsFed Bloggers: June 4th Update

New, 2 comments

As you already know (if you read this), the hockey bloggers in the Sports Federation are involved in a little prognosticate-off with the "Experts" from Hardcore Hockey Talk as part of The Score's Playoff Hockey Challenge with the goal to see who has the larger brains. 

It's all come down to this:

  • The leaders, Lions in Winter, and many others misremembered to submit their picks... c'mon just showing up is like 90% of life, or something like that;

  • None of the "Experts" submitted their picks and we're sure that will be used as their excuse for not winning the contest; and

  • Detroit in 7 and we'd take this biatch. 

Here's the table with final predictions:
