I still only see one "choke" (in 2001). In all the other series, I see an underdog taking the higher seeded (and thus favoured) team to a long series (with two going the distance) before losing.

There are too many people that drank the Toronto centered media kool-aid about how the scrappy Leafs overcame the highpowered Senators, but the Leafs were a better team according to the regular season.
And that series that the Senators "choked" was all about Yashin quitting on the team. When your alleged best player decides he doesn't want to do anything since he's received all the money from his contract, it's a tough thing to overcome.
