Tbf, Kings were in 8th, but were on the ascent since adding Sutter and then acquiring Carter. Quick was also awesome all year, they just didn't have the coach early on to put it together. I could tell they would do well, even against Van (maybe not THAT well).

Coaching makes a HUGE difference - that's why the Leafs shouldn't be taken lightly. Consider they're still missing Lupul. Carlyle does not go down easy and they have a team built for the playoffs. That's why I prefer Bos/Tor in the first rd so they can bruise each other. Then take on the winner (at some point).

Again, the question was rd 1, right? If it was the ECF, then yeah, rivalry time for sure!
