First Round Match Ups.
 
Who do you guys want to play for the first round?

I am hoping for Montreal - Ottawa.

I want to see them beat TO in first round.

DrEasy 03-27-2013 02:49 PM

I don't want to talk about playoffs till we clinch.

Anyone but Boston.


They are a beatable team, but we're just cursed or something when it comes to them.

mat_sens 03-27-2013 02:57 PM

A bit early for this. Let's start by making it.

BigZKingK 03-27-2013 02:57 PM

ughhh don`t want to face the Bruins but if we lose to MTL in the playoff Habs fans will be a pain in my ass at work for weeks (Living in MTL) so im hopping somehow for Winni

Flamingo 03-27-2013 02:58 PM

There was a poll thread about this just last week, wasn't there? Merge?

Midas0 03-27-2013 02:59 PM

anyone but boston and the pens.

sens613 03-27-2013 03:00 PM

winnipeg carolina washington , whoever gets the 3 seed in the south east really, failing that MTL

FolignoQuantumLeap 03-27-2013 03:09 PM

Ideally anyone out of the southeast besides Washington who would be red hot if they made it. Montreal Ottawa is my preferred 4-5 matchup because we matchup well and because of the rivalry that would ensue. I think we could really physically impose our will on that team and Spezza is maybe the best Habs killer in recent memory

Pitlick* 03-27-2013 03:15 PM

We need to have one of the teams below us get red hot and get 5th. I'd rather be 6th and play Winnipeg, for obvious reasons.

Or, get red hot ourselves, win the division in the 2 seed.

danishh 03-27-2013 03:20 PM

everything points to montreal/boston in the 4-5 matchup, with a slim chance of winnipeg/SE winner in the 3-6 matchup.

It would be nice to some how face Toronto!

Won't happen. My bet is MTL or WPG. Both of which I like.

Leafs are on our heals, ya'kno.

OgieO 03-27-2013 03:31 PM

Hmmm, me thinks the NHL would like to see the following:
1. Pitt vs 8. NJ (whomever claims the 8, NJ not important)
2. Boston vs 7. NYR (BIG ratings, US TV dream)
3. SE winner vs 6. Ottawa (CBC special, lol)
4. Montreal vs 5. Toronto (the REAL CBC special).

FolignoQuantumLeap 03-27-2013 03:33 PM

I hadn't thought of Montreal-Toronto. That would be pretty awesome.

There is currently a 99.2% chance that Ottawa makes the playoffs:

This. We can go 7-4-4 and be guaranteed a spot. Still great odds if we play worse than that.

I'd like to play Winnipeg or Montreal. Not Carolina because we suck against them, not Toronto because I don't want them to have the pressure of playing them for the first time they make the playoffs. If we somehow win the division and play NJ or NYR/NYI that would be great as well!

Do Make Say Think 03-27-2013 05:00 PM

Just NOT Montreal

I don't want to lose to those ********

7-4-4?

We can be a lot worse than that to guarantee a spot.

Marvelous Manked 03-27-2013 05:10 PM

According to SCS:

41.3% Montreal
27.5% Boston
12.9% Winnipeg
4.7% Carolina
3.5% Toronto

I like us playing the Jets.

Fenix Rises 2026 03-27-2013 05:20 PM

We could clinch the division and slide into the number 2 spot in the east.

Would take us going on a bit of streak and the bruins losing a few. Unlikely, but not impossible.

FolignoQuantumLeap 03-27-2013 05:24 PM

If we could miraculously take the division, I would love a rematch v New York. Stick it to Rick Nash and all his fan boys. Send his ass to the Worlds where he belongs.

Yes. I like this.

There was a great deal I liked about Muckler, but my favourite was his attitude. He used to say, "We shouldn't be afraid to talk about the Stanley Cup". It didn't work out for him here but the concept was sound.

It's a bit early but I really like this team, they are a tough bunch. They have thrived on being underdogs and have embraced being pesky. Without a doubt a team.

The only team I wouldn't want to see in the first round is the Penguins, they are on a serious roll. Second or third round, sure, bring them on.

This Sens team has the makings of being giant slayers. I would wager no team wants to pull the Sens in the first round, they are playing with house money and thus dangerous.

Bring 'em on!
