Welcome to the GM Game v4 Playoffs, presented by Honda, powered by SAP, and prepared by @A_K.

The playoff bracket is set (see the ‘Playoffs’ tab in the score sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EBGK-D_ckiLR356uDvJZhe9w5ohIR-sXaytCiDb4Vq4/edit?usp=sharing)

The links to playoff voting will be found in this thread as soon as voting is open.
ROUND ONE VOTING IS PROJECTED TO OPEN ON OR BEFORE FRIDAY, APRIL 3rd.

GMs will judge each matchup on the following categories:
Offense (10 pts): the ability of all skaters (F and D) to produce offense at even strength
Defense (10 pts): the ability of all skaters (F and D) to prevent offense at even strength
Goaltending (10 pts): the ability of the starting goaltender (and to a much lesser extent, the backup) to positively impact a game.
Forwards, Talent and Depth (4 pts): the overall, combined ability of the forwards to positively impact a game
Defensemen, Talent and Depth (4 pts): the overall, combined ability of the defensemen to positively impact a game
Composition (4 pts): the “intangible” aspects of a team such as potential synergies, character/identity, leadership/experience, etc.
Power Play (4 pts): the ability of skaters to score on the man-advantage
Penalty Kill (4 pts): the ability of skaters to prevent scoring while on the penalty kill

GMs will use the 0-10 or 0-4 scale to place votes on the favorability that one team has over the other in each of the categories. The home team is the left side (zero); away team is the right (4 or 10).

Examples using a 10-pt category:
If you think the home team has a very slight advantage over the away team, your vote would be “3” or “4”.
If you think the away team has a dominant advantage over the home team, your vote would be “8” or “9”.
If you think neither team has a clear advantage in a category, your vote would be “5”. (In a 4-pt category, your vote would be “2”.)

Each GM may vote 1x per matchup – the CF username and team name are collected on each submitted ballot. If there are multiple entries per team, all will be thrown out and the BOG will investigate. AGMs do not receive a vote – 1 per team.

Each GM is asked to vote on all series EXCEPT for (a) matchups that involve his or her own team OR (b) matchups in which he or she owns a first round pick in 2020 of either team involved. The BOG and myself will rule out invalid votes and remove voting privileges for other series if this rule is not followed.

GMs are asked to avoid voting “straight ticket”, i.e. asked to avoid giving all of the possible pts in all categories to one team. GMs are also asked to avoid any biases toward teams/GMs/players that they may possess. Now is not the time to be a superfan, a grudge-holder, or a downright a-hole. We want the most objective results possible. In any case, the highest and lowest total scores for each matchup will be removed from the results. And personal bias will be investigated and votes potentially removed by the BOG with whatever evidence they may call upon.

Voting will remain open for 7 days, then the data will be uploaded into a google sheet where I will perform the simulations. Seven games are simulated for each series based on GM vote shares, home ice advantage (2-2-1-1-1 format for the 7 games), and a “puck luck” factor that randomly assigns a fraction of the total possible score.

I will publish the results to this thread within 1-2 days of the end of each round, and I will provide a view of the score sheet that shows the full voting and simulation results.

Use the General Discussion thread to post any questions or concerns with the playoff system. Good luck to all of the playoff teams - may the best team win!

ATTENTION GMs:

Round One voting is now open for all eligible GMs (see the description above). Votes will be tallied on Friday, April 10th so make sure to get them in before next Thursday night.

If it is confusing, try to ignore the numbers and think of it as a sliding scale that you're placing your vote on; further from the center = more weight toward that team.

TBL vs ARI

VGK vs BOS

CAR vs MIN

VAN vs NJD

COL vs TOR

CBJ vs WPG

NSH vs CGY

DAL vs PHI

The season begins tonight and I have a final update on our scoring process for Season 2 of V4. While the calculation methods and appearance of the score sheet will look different, most of the scoring details from Season 1 will carry over. However, there are some new features that you will want to hear about.
Since this stuff is boring for most of you, I’ll start with the part you really need to pay attention to:

WHAT DO I DO?
SET YOUR ROSTER ON THE LAST DAY OF THE MONTH - Your team page serves as your official roster. On the last day of each month, your roster will lock, meaning that the BOG will (after verifying its legitimacy) enter your team EXACTLY AS IT APPEARS, and this roster will be used to calculate the scoring total for your team.

SELECT YOUR COACHING STYLE – This feature is new to v4.2. Take advantage of the strengths of your team by choosing one of the 5 categories for added multipliers. These bonuses are entirely based on your exact lineups (ex. Line 1, Line 2, 2nd pair, etc.) and are laid out in detail below in the “NEW TO V4.2” section (and can be found in the rule book). Use the first line of the “Description” section of your team page to make your selection. For example, type “January Coaching style = Balanced”. This will lock and be recorded on the last day of the month along with your roster. If you do not select a style, “Standard” will be selected by default.

NEW TO V4.2
Coaching styles are a new feature that the BOG wanted to add to make things more interactive and to allow for teams to exploit certain areas of strength that GMs have built their rosters upon. To put it simply, think of it giving certain lines and pairings more ice and more value. There are 5 coaching styles:

Standard – aptly named, this is a generic usage strategy for a team that leans on its better players but doesn’t break their backs. 10%, 6%, and 4% bonuses to forward lines 1, 2, and 3, respectively. 10% and 6% bonuses to defense pairs 1 and 2, respectively.

Top-Heavy – this strategy is for teams that heavily rely on their top line and top pair. 20% bonus to forward line 1. 20% bonus to defense pair 1.

Balanced – Rolling all 4 lines and 3 pairs? 8% bonus to all 4 forward lines and all 3 defensive pairs.

Heavy Top6F – self-explanatory, good for a team that gets their top 2 lines out there as much as possible. 15% bonuses for forward lines 1 and 2. 6% and 2% bonuses to defense pairs 1 and 2.

Heavy Top4D – you should get it by now… 20% boost to defense pairs 1 and 2. 6% and 2% bonuses for forward lines 1 and 2.

Pro tip: Don’t stress about your selection here, these bonuses will only swing your total team score by a couple of percentage points. Just pick based on where you think your team strength lies.

SCORING DETAILS
Each skater will earn points for their team based on the amount of goals, primary assists, secondary assists, individual expected goals (ixG), hits, blocks, faceoff win/loss, penalties drawn/taken, on-ice goals for/against, on-ice expected goals for/against, and expected goals for/against relative to teammates, and time on ice.

Primary power play points are valued at 80% of the worth of a point scored in any other manner (i.e. EV, PK) and secondary assists on the power play are worth 65%; stats while playing against an empty net valued at 80% similar to PP points. On-ice stats are for 5v5 play only.

Each goalie will earn points for saves and lose points for goals against. They will earn or lose points for goals saved above expected (GSAx). Also, actual save percentage vs expected and vs league average are used. Goalie stats are counted for all situations. If a goalie’s stat line puts him into the negative (mostly due to small sample sizes of extreme underperformance) he will earn zero points.

Points are totaled each period for each line/pair and are multiplied by the bonuses based on your coaching style selection.

Healthy scratches earn 30% of their point totals.

The scoring formula is based on Game Score Game Score Value Added (GSVA) by Dom Luzszcszcsczsczczsyn, with a few tweaks and workarounds.

SCORING SCHEDULE
The scoring is broken into 4 quarters – one per month – for this shortened season. Any roster moves (including line changes or healthy scratch swaps) after the last day of each month will not go into effect until the following month.
January – scoring is tabulated from Jan 13th until Feb 13th. Rosters lock Jan 31st for this period.
February – scoring is tabulated from Feb 14th until Mar 13th. Rosters lock Feb 28th for this period.
March – scoring is tabulated from Mar 14th until April 13th. Rosters lock Mar 31st for this period.
April – scoring is tabulated from Apr 14th until May 13th (or the end of the season). Rosters lock Apr 30th for this period.

Welcome to the GM Game v4.2 Playoffs, presented by Honda, powered by SAP, and prepared by @A_K.

The playoff bracket is set (see the ‘Playoffs’ tab in the score sheet

The links to playoff voting will be found in this thread as soon as voting is open.

GMs will judge each matchup on the categories provided in the poll:

GMs will use a 0-10, 0-4, etc. scale to place votes on the favorability that one team has over the other in each of the categories. The away team is the left side (zero); home team is the right side.

Examples using a 10-pt category:
If you think the home team has a very slight advantage over the away team, your vote would be “6” or “7”.
If you think the away team has a dominant advantage over the home team, your vote would be “1” or “2”.
If you think neither team has a clear advantage in a category, your vote would be “5”. (In a 4-pt category, your vote would be “2”.)

Each GM may vote 1x per matchup – the CF username and team name are collected on each submitted ballot. If there are multiple entries per team, all will be thrown out and the BOG will investigate. AGMs do not receive a vote – 1 per team.

Each GM is asked to vote on all series EXCEPT for (a) matchups that involve his or her own team OR (b) matchups in which he or she owns a first round pick in 2020 of either team involved. The BOG and myself will rule out invalid votes and remove voting privileges for other series if this rule is not followed.

GMs are asked to avoid voting “straight ticket”, i.e. asked to avoid giving all of the possible pts in all categories to one team. GMs are also asked to avoid any biases toward teams/GMs/players that they may possess. Now is not the time to be a superfan, a grudge-holder, or a downright a-hole. We want the most objective results possible. In any case, the highest and lowest total scores for each matchup will be removed from the results. And personal bias will be investigated and votes potentially removed by the BOG with whatever evidence they may call upon.

Voting will remain open for 7 days, then the data will be uploaded into a google sheet where I will perform the simulations. Seven games are simulated for each series based on GM vote shares, home ice advantage (2-2-1-1-1 format for the 7 games), and a “puck luck” factor that randomly assigns a fraction of the total possible score.

I will publish the results to this thread within 1-2 days of the end of each round, and I will provide a view of the score sheet that shows the full voting and simulation results.

Use the General Discussion thread to post any questions or concerns with the playoff system. Good luck to all of the playoff teams - may the best team win!

#16 New Jersey Devils at #1 Colorado Avalanche

The Devils made a late push to get themselves into the playoffs, but any hope they had of advancing was quickly dismantled by an Avs team led by their lethal top line of Rantanen, Mackinnon, and Marner. The GMs gave a 74/26 edge to Colorado, and despite a couple of strong efforts, the Devils were sent downlike a big pile of snow falling down a mountain. Avs in 4.

Game 1: COL 5-2, Rust GWG
Game 2: COL 4-3 OT, Mackinnon GWG
Game 3: COL 5-3, Landeskog GWG
Game 4: COL 3-2, Marner GWG

COL vote % 73.6%
COL single game win % 94.2%
COL series win % 100%


#15 Vegas Golden Knights at #2 Carolina Hurricanes

In a surprising midweek interaction, the Vegas GM seemed to verbally concede this matchup between the re-tooling Golden Knights and the Canes. If it was a puzzling move then, it shouldn’t be puzzling anymore, as Carolina absolutely gobsmacked the Golden Yikes. Fans spent more time arguing about who the number one defenseman is on the Canes than debating who will win the series. The voting in this series was the most lopsided of any in the 1st round, 79/29. VGK got some puck luck in games 1 and 4, but ultimately failed to come away with a single victory. Canes in 3... err 4.

Game 1: CAR 4-3, Buchnevich GWG
Game 2: CAR 5-0, Vatrano GWG
Game 3: CAR 4-1, Buchnevich GWG
Game 4: CAR 3-2 OT, Aho GWG

CAR vote % 78.5%
CAR single game win % 100.0%
CAR series win % 100.0%


#14 Vancouver Canucks at #3 Toronto Maple Leafs

Only one team would advance from this heavyweight Canadian matchup. The Canucks made a late-season push after playing the rental market like a fiddle and coming away with a shutdown 3C and the greatest goal scorer of all time. But the Maple Leafs were consistently strong all season and weren’t about to be bullied in round one. The voters set this one to be a pretty tight matchup - 53/47 for TOR - and the Leafs jumped out to a 3-0 series lead, so naturally their fans went white with fear. Vancouver took the next two games thanks to clutch goals from Brendan Gallagher and TOMAS TAATTTAAAAAAR. Game six ended on the stick of Oliver Bjorkstrand thanks to the mustache power of his linemates, Fil Forsberg and Papi Matthews. Leafs in 6, good series.

Game 1: TOR 4-3, Pelech GWG
Game 2: TOR 5-2, Forsberg GWG
Game 3: TOR 2-0, Pelech GWG
Game 4: VAN 4-3 OT, Gallagher GWG
Game 5: VAN 5-3, Tatar GWG
Game 6: TOR 3-2, Bjorkstrand GWG

TOR vote % 52.8%
TOR single game win % 56.5%
TOR series win % 62.0%


#13 Los Angeles Kings at #4 Tampa Bay Lightning

Just like in the real world, Tampa was able to make a big addition to the roster for the playoffs as the former MVP Nikita Kucherov recovered from his offseason surgery with perfect timing that could be nothing short of coincidence. The Kings meanwhile, suffered a massive hit when their top line center Dylan Larkin was lost to injury before the series. The GMs did not vote particularly tight on this matchup, and Tampa used that 75/25 voting advantage to win the first 4 games of the series and advance to the 2nd round. The Lightning cited Cody Ceci as the key cog in the series win. Coach Jon Cooper said “Caca Peepee is a gamer, he competes, gets pucks deep, wins battles, and can be trusted in all situations.” Bolts in 4.

Game 1: TBL 6-1, Ceci GWG
Game 2: TBL 5-4, Garland GWG
Game 3: TBL 4-2, Joseph GWG
Game 4: 5-4, Point GWG

TBL vote % 75.3%
TBL single game win % 97.5%
TBL series win % 100.0%


#12 Dallas Stars at #5 Calgary Flames

If March Madness has taught us anything, it’s that the 12v5 matchup is built for upsets. The Stars entered the series with some new faces after their GM had a busy few weeks leading up to the trade deadline. The Flames made some moves of their own, including a move that sent center Bo Horvat to the Stars in exchange for Roope Hintz. Horvat, centering Swiss model Kevin Fiala and Dallas’ new sniper Patrik Laine, was out for revenge on his former team, but it was the Flames that prevailed in this close matchup. Calgary, voting favorites at 53%, took the series in dramatic fashion, winning on a game 7 overtime goal from Matt Tkachuk. Flames in 7.

Game 1: DAL 3-2, Kurashev GWG
Game 2: CGY 4-3, Strome GWG
Game 3: DAL 3-2 OT, Kurashev GWG
Game 4: CGY 5-2, Reilly GWG
Game 5: CGY 3-1, Oshie GWG
Game 6: DAL 2-0, Laine GWG
Game 7: CGY 4-3 OT, Tkachuk GWG

CGY vote % 53.2%
CGY single game win % 52.7%
CGY series win % 57.7%

#11 Winnipeg Jets at #6 New York Rangers

The Jets searched for a gamebreaker to add before the deadline, but their GM ultimately decided to move a couple of upcoming free agents and focus on the future. Still they entered the playoffs with a high-octane offense led by 2 of the top 7 goal scorers on the season. The Rangers have a strong veteran core and spent a lot of time near the top of the standings, earning the #6 seed. This was the closest series of the first round - the GMs actually gave the #11 seed Jets a 50.5% edge. No surprise to hockey men everywhere, the defense and goaltending became key factors, and the Rangers were able to edge out the high-powered Jets. Rangers in 7.

NYR vote % 49.5%
NYR single game win % 48.5%
NYR series win % 41.5%

GWG
Game 1 Pavelski
Game 2 DeBrincat
Game 3 Pavelski
Game 4 Tanev
Game 5 Trocheck
Game 6 Murphy
Game 7 Benn

#10 Detroit Red Wings at #7 Ottawa Senators

Detroit made a huge push at the outset of the season, and again at the deadline, to get themselves into a contending window. The Senators did the same thing, moving prized prospects for proven stars. The Wings suffered from no.1 d-man Aaron Ekblad going down to injury, and the Senators star forwards took full advantage of the opportunity in this series. Drake Batherson was the most noticeable Sen on the ice at times, and with teammates like Patrick Kane, Mark Stone, and Sean Couturier, this is extremely high praise for the youngster. The Wings were able to take one game from the Senators, but it is Ottawa who will be moving on to the 2nd round. Sens in 5.

OTT vote % 67.8%
OTT single game win % 81.3%
OTT series win % 98.6%

Game 1 Hartman
Game 2 Batherson
Game 3 Batherson
Game 4 Knyzhov

#9 Edmonton Oilers at #8 Montreal Canadiens

Edmonton and Montreal, another Canadian matchup with great teams and loads of talent. I wish we could’ve seen this one played out in real life - McDavid and Draisaitl versus Crosby and Malkin. The voting was tight as expected. Montreal received a 52% voting share and with home ice advantage, entered the simulated series with a slight edge over the underdog Oilers. The Oilers stole a game in Montreal, but the Habs returned the favor in Alberta. What would a playoff series be without a Nazem Kadri suspension? A high hit to teenager Ryan Nugent-Hopkins resulted in a suspension to Kadri for the remainder of the series. With a 3-game set to determine the winner, it became the Connor McDavid show. The clear MVP choice was just too much to handle in this one, and Edmonton pulled off the upset. Oilers in 7.

V4 Season 2 Playoffs

Round 2 Results


#9 Edmonton Oilers at #1 Colorado Avalanche

The Oilers, led by Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, were going to have to knock off the top seeded Avs if they wanted their playoff run to continue. The series started in Edmonton, where the Oilers supporting cast helped them out to an early 2-0 series lead. The Avalanche showed a little rust but as the series headed to Denver, their big guns on the top line were able to even things up. Mackinnon had the GWG in game 3 which capped off a hat trick on the night. Game 4 was all about Mikko Rantanen and Mitch Marner, who actually did something in this virtual playoff series. After they tied up the series at 2-2, it was the Avalanche who took the next 2 games in decisive fashion to advance to the 3rd round. 8 down, 8 to go for the top seed, but this will be where the going gets tough. Avs in 6.

#7 Ottawa Senators at #2 Carolina Hurricanes

All eyes were on this titanic matchup between two serious cup contenders. The Senators were riding Semyon Varlamov all the way up to the #7 spot in the final rankings, but he started to sputter in the 2nd round matchup and the Sens quickly found themselves down 3 in the series and in need of some magic. Game 4 was a classic, capped off by Miles Wood burying the GWG off of a bad Carolina change near the end of the 2nd period. The Sens held on for dear life in the 3rd, with waves (storm surges?) of scoring chances coming from the Canes. The Senators staved off elimination for a second time in Game 5, this time in Raleigh, and the series was still alive headed back to Ottawa. Mika Zibanejad scored the OT winner in Game 6 for the Cardiac Canes, who will be headed to the 3rd round thanks to their elite center depth and endless brigade of top pairing defensemen. Canes in 6.

#6 New York Rangers at #3 Toronto Maple Leafs

The Rangers got the bounces they needed to move past the best team in the league in the 1st round; were they going to carry that puck luck through to round 3? In their way sits the Toronto Maple Leafs, who can only make it to the 2nd round in a fantasy game where nearly all of the actual players were traded away. The GM vote gave a pretty significant edge to the Leafs. They jumped out to a 3-0 series lead thanks to some stellar play by their top pair of Pelech and Pulock. The Rags season was on the line in Game 4, and they pulled together to get the W behind a power play marker from LA Kings legend Brayden Schenn. Game 5 was the Auston Matthews show - 2 goals and an assist led the way to a Leafs win and a spot in the semifinals. Leafs in 5.

#5 Calgary Flames at #4 Tampa Bay Lightning

The Bolts entered this series with the eye of the tiger. They looked hungry to get their names on the cup again, and a back-to-back was starting to look like a real possibility. But the Flames weren’t going to hand anything to them. The simulator, thanks to the GMs that voted heavily toward the Lightning, pegged the Bolts as heavy favorites. But that didn’t stop the Flames from giving everything they had to keep this one close. This was the third series out of the four in round 2 to start out with a 3-0 leader. The Lightning were looking to sweep, but the Flames came roaring back and tied it up, 3-3. In game 7, the defending champs flexed their muscle and sent the Flames home… but they had a lot to be proud of after grinding this one out. Lightning in 7.
