I'm expecting my Sens to be a tough opponent that loses a hard fought series in 6 or 7.

Anderson has been great this season; well since he came to Ottawa really. The defense is suspect though, from the entire team. The worst is our slot. I can't believe how bad their coverage is in the slot.

Uh, you're about to face (probably) the biggest team in the NHL and many of them like to play physical.
I'm not sure what the exact lineup will look like, but I do expect Butler, Konopka, Gilroy and Daugavins to be the scratches most games. Though I suppose Gilroy and Daugavins could just as easily play in the series.
The Habs, in turn, stole it from the Montréal Montagnards.
I typically co-opt it for my needs as an Olympiques fan, however I enjoy singing it in arenas everywhere. I started singing Les Éperviers sont là in Detroit this year, to the delightment of the Blackhawks fans nearby (if they didn't know that 'Épervier' means Blackhawk, they did by the end of the night!), and to the dismay of the Red Wings fans that severely booed me a few times throughout the night. I was the loudest one there though!
If they drop either of the first two home games the board might explode. If they go up 2-0 and lose one in Ottawa I think people will be less likely to freak out.
I think you underestimate the stupidity of some on these boards. We're having people saying we're going to lose the first round because we lost a meaningless game today. Some of those people are saying Hank sucks. 'nuff said.
