Gotta go with the Leafs here. As much as I would like a better pick a Leafs win would leave the division lead at 3 points with 2 games in hand. Either result will benefit us one way or another barring the dreaded 3 point OT game in these situations.
I hate the the Habs with every fiber of my being but for this year (and last) I want the Leafs to lose to anyone and everyone, even the Habs. It's so great when the Leafs get their doors blown off and their board goes into full meltdown.
My sentiments as well. Also I'm quite confident that we'll make the playoffs, and once there, I don't feel that the seeding is that important.
And even if we were to trade the Toronto pick, the lower they are in the standing, the more we can get for it.
The ONLY way I EVER cheer for a Habs win is if it meant that the B`s snag a playoff spot because they were chasing the team the Habs were playing. CASE CLOSED, draft schmaft, I hate the Habs, a hatred that burns with the heat of 1000 suns with tobasco sauce on it.
Toronto because the standings are more important than the draft seeing as we seem fairly deep already. Hate them both but I will cheer for Toronto. Would love a lottery pick, but I would rather the division lead. NO OVERTIME!!
Montreal. The division matters a lot less to me than the pick. I don't think the road in the playoffs is that much harder as an underseed anymore -- the thing is to get there in the first place. We'll do that handily. Meanwhile I want that pick to be the best it can so that Chia can use it to great effect to improve the franchise..
