PHT’s Round 2 picks, once again featuring The Coin


For those not up to speed with The Coin -- a 1972 Eisenhower Dollar that we used in Round 1 -- click here to learn all about its coinly goodness (and the very arbitrary nature of making accurate predictions.)


The Coin finished tied for the best PHT staff record in the opening round as it, along with Ryan Dadoun, went 6-2; Jason Brough, James O’Brien, Cam Tucker and Dhiren Mahiban all went 5-3 while yours truly went a putrid 3-5.

Quit showing me up, coin. Ah, who am I kidding...I can’t stay mad at you.

Anyway, let’s move onto some of the more impressive Round 1 picks:

-- Tucker was the only human staffer to take the Wild over the Blues (and nailing it in six games, too.) The Coin also took the Wild.

-- Mahiban was the only animate object to take the Flames over the Canucks. The Coin also took the Flames.

-- Tucker was also the only staffer to accurately predict Rangers over Pens in five.

-- Dadoun picked Habs in six, which nobody else did.
