Could be easily the most watched series on HNIC of all time.
I begrudingly respect the Leafs for their very good turnaround and performance this year, but honestly, Ottawa is the scarier team. They're disclipined, patient, smart, deceptively good and are tenacious-the kind of team who can make serious damage to you if you make the slightest mistake.
Ottawa is a upset team. Enough said.
And they have better guys in net. Reimer/Scrivens have proved to be at least nice NHL-calibre goalies compared to what Toronto had before(Toskala, Gustavsson, Tellqvist, Aubin, Belfour Raycroft etc) but I don't view them as goalies who can steal a series on their own imo.
That being said, I want to win the cup and having a great, intense, physical and emotional first-round series ain't in the best interests of the Habs.
I want to see a nice little matchup in the first round, in which the Habs advance in 4 or 5 games without much noise, fuss or critical injuries.
Bring me the Rags. Let the Bruins struggle with one of Leafs/Sens and be done with them.
I would not be wishing for the Rags.
