Just think of it: that single 6-0 win keeps coming up again and again. It's pretty much the only game that allowed them to "assert" their "new identity" of being a "tough" team even though their Top 9 aren't really tough and gritty at all (except for Komarov, I suppose). A playoff series loss in Round 1 would be a nightmare. The Habs have so much more to lose than the Leafs.

Actually, I have come to a conclusion: the Leafs should play the Rangers in Round 1.

(Hopefully none of this comes back to bite me.)
A round 1 loss against anyone wouldn't be ideal. Nobody wants that. If it's just a question of being chirped at, than who cares? They've always been chirping about something.
