If you feel the team chosen to finish 4th actually has more chances of missing the POs than the 8th seed, then shouldn't it be placed behind it?

It's just completely illogical. The only logical explanation is that none of Ferraro, Crawford and McKenzie picked the Habs to finish higher than the teams they chose to possibly miss the POs (TB, NYR, PHI). Mtl was placed 8th from a general consensus, so I'm guessing that includes the rest of the TSN crew, otherwise it makes no sense.
IIRC, out of the bottom 8 teams, they chose either the Devils or the Hurricanes holding an outside chance of making the playoffs. I guess the thought process is that if one of those teams does sneak in, they would do so instead of fellow divisional teams such the NYR or the TB Lightning respectively.

And I don't think any of them believes that the Leafs (much less the Sens) can make the playoffs instead of the Habs.
