Same here. How great would a Leafs collapse be this year? I don't think it'll happen but the reactions would be spectacular.

Ironically, I'm traveling to Toronto tomorrow and will be in Leaf-land during the game. Should be interesting...

Cant cheer for either one. I am hoping that it will be a blowout for one side or the other so one team will forget about hockey and goon it up.

Would love to see some good fights from the game (but probably wont happen). It would be awesome to see McClaren fighting Chara, McClaren fighting Thornton (knockout of Thornton would be awesome) Fraser fighting Lucic.

But the biggest highlight of the night would be Kadri fighting Marchand. It would be hilarious seeing two pukes going at it.

I'm an '83 born so 2 cups and a final.

I envy you! Still, I've lived in leafs nation for the last ten years and I wear my hometown bleu, blanc, rouge proudly and often bring up the joy of having enjoyed Cups in REAL LIFE!!! Hoping to move back to MTL in time for the POs though so my trip to the ACC last Wed was a great farewell (if all goes according to plan) to these loser fans. Oh the fights. I'll miss the fights.

Marchand will accuse Kadri of running away from Tim Horty....err Dunkin Horty?

That was my alternate thread title. Except it was going to be "The enemy of my enemy is still a P.O.S." But of course I'm way too mature to sink to those depths.

Could not have said it better myself. Dislike the B's, but hate the Leafs. Hated the Nords more than the B's and Leafs combined!

Would enjoy the drama of the leafs completely sh#$kicking boston on the scoreboard and on the ice..then in the parking lot..then the airport..you get my drift.

The B's are by far our biggest rival and while I respect they have a good team over there, watching them skid (it would be 3 games then on the bounce) would be nice and take a little bloom off the rose..so to speak.

Not hoping for injuries but if someone could dust up marchand and sequin a little...I wouldn't mind.

I don't want both of those teams to make the POs, so, let the team that's better get the points.
Strategically this makes perfect sense but I can't. Boston hate is significantly more so id rather they lose bad. Rather get the better team on a low and kill their confidence.

I think fans older than ~40 will cheer for Boston because they consider Toronto to be our rival.

I'm 29, I'll cheer for Toronto, because when a non-rival plays against a rival, I cheer for the non-rival. Toronto has not been a rival in decades.

If Colton Orr fights Milan Lucic, I will hope that Orr wins.

I would prefer to have Bruins fans gloat about being in 1st place than Leafs fan. If Leafs finish in first, I will be ill.....literally.

I hate Boston... since I can't bring myself to hate Toronto until the day they actually make the playoffs. But this year seems as good as any for the Leafs to make the playoffs so Toronto.

definitely going for boston. I see them surpassing Montreal when the games even out, so might as well stop Toronto from getting 2 points.

Would making the playoffs as a #4 seed satisfy us? That's what we'd likely get if we are not first in the division.

For a team that was projected to miss them quite easily, yes it's satisfying IMO

Toronto and the Media have been promoting there new toughness this year! Is it to early or the right game tonight to measure how tough they really are? Toronto if they play like the last 10 games can mail it in and not borther showing up.

They both goon it up.
Suspensions will happen
Leafs win

Keep those B's away from us in the standings, and keep Leafs up in the standings so they don't draft high
