I'm looking at this deal from a selfish hawks fan point of view.
I think they'd be steamrolled against either Pittsburgh or Boston.
Montreal has a 3 pt lead on Boston. If the season ended today, the Habs would be the #2 seed. Isles are 2 pts behind NJ, who hold the #7 seed. Isles have matched up well against Montreal this season.
At this point, I don't care who they play so long as they get in.
