I prefer the Buffalo rivalry for two reasons:

1) We have beaten them at least once out of the four times we played them
2) Our crowd is actually a home crowd.

I love Senators playoff atmosphere when the crowd really rallies around the team. Some road fans are inevitable, and that's fine. But we have been trying to grow an expansion franchise into a brand for 20 years, and IMO the organization and fanbase gained much more from the playoff years in which we didn't have to play Toronto.

That said, I don't really want the Leafs to miss the playoffs perpetually. If we match up against them again, fine, but I'm not going to hope for it. It would be nice to finally beat Toronto when it counts, but frankly I don't much care who we play in the playoffs as long as we beat them.
