There should be a choice that the Staypuff Marshmellow Man from Ghostbusters shows up, and tramples everyone.

Rooting for either gives you mixed emotions; like Matt Cooke driving over a cliff in your new BMW M3.

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.

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.

I'm not worried about Montreal. We're clearly a better team than them. If it weren't for the flukish 3-1 record they have against us, we'd be up a lot more.

Besides, we're ahead in the division, even if they do win, we're still capable of making it up. Toronto needs to win as little as possible to secure the best draft position.

Habs. Improve the pick. Worry about winning the division on your own merits.

Two things:

I want Toronto to blow the pants off the Habs; I don't care about the pick, and I don't care about the standings. I just want Montreal to experience a cardiac meltdown.


Secondly, I would love to see kessel get a hat trick or more; let the snake-bit guy just light up price.

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..

For reference

Habs against non-Bruins teams: 60 points in 52 games = 95 point pace
Bruins against non-Habs teams:66 points in 51 games = 106 point pace

Remove those 4 games, and there's an 11 point gap between the two. Nobody should be scared of Montreal here

The answer is easy:

You root for a regulation finish.

We have finally reached a generation gap here at dear old HF.

Root for theHabs ?!!!!!

Only if they were playing killer werewolf zombies for the fate of the world.

Even then, I'd have to have a few stiff drinks to actually commit to that heresy.

Montreal. I have a lot more faith in the Bruins piling together wins to make sure they win the division than I do in a team like the Panthers doing so to stay ahead of the Leafs.

I want a Canadien's win.The Devils are hot on the heels of the leafs and if they catch them that could guarantee a top 5 pick.The leafs are also a point away from the Panthers.

Besides I feel the Bruins will be able to hold off the Canadiens for the division title despite the outcome of tonight's game.

One pick could mean the difference of you drafting a Jacob Voracek or a Zach Hamill.

Not necessarily "rooting" for the Habs to win. That requires an emotional investment I don't care to make. It's more about which group you'd rather see lose.

A Leaf win tonight isn't going to matter a hill of beans to the pick. Bruins will have the 4th to 7th pick, no matter what. And the results of this game probably won't affect which player it is.

On the other hand, the Bruins are headed to a 1st round matchup against the habs this year, and the extra home game could likely make a difference.

I can't help but think of that famous quotation, "those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them". (George Santayana)

Just for the record I voted for not team to win, I voted for the Habs to lose!

Now if it were game 82 and Toronto was in 27th place by a point I would scream and cheer for Montreal.



Edit: This screaming and cheering would go on only if said two points had no affect on playoff standings
Edit II: Ideal would be the two points moving Montreal from 10th to 9th place

So long as the game doesn't go to OT, I'll be happy.

Over the past 20 years, The Bell Centre for a hockey game between Toronto - Montreal is the only thing that can compare to MSG for a late 90s Knicks - Bulls game or Knicks - Pacers game.


I'm not a fan of Montreal or New York, but the fans at these games are so fired up.

Good to see Boyce back after losing a nostril. Has anyone seen that picture? Worth a search if not.
