I thought about it. It's the Habs, it always has been the Habs in my 47 years of rooting for the Bruins and it always will be. I always hope we beat the Habs 4 straight every playoff series with wins of 6-0, 7-0, 8-0 and 9-1 (hey, gotta let them score one goal), leaving the Habs players and their fans a slobbering pile of goo. I used to respect the Habs players. Who couldn't respect Richard, Beliveau, Cournyer, Savard and Tremblay ? The current bunch of Disney on Ice rejects are viewed here with unmitigated loathing and contempt. The Pens, by comparison are like a mosquito. Every once in a while they get you for blood, but you could squish them if you really wanted to.

Neely shooting from the press box would score more than Pandolfo.

Habs, but it was very close. I have so many things against the Pens right now, but I think you always have to take Montreal.

Up until now I'd probably never even consider it, but the Pens. I will always hate the Habs but Iginla and the Pens are the ones who *****-slapped Boston in the face right now and nothing would be more satisfying then to crush them in the playoffs. I hope Iginla never gets to see the cup after pulling this ****.

The Pens didn't do anything wrong in the Iginla situation. They'd be stupid to not accept the gift. Besides Cooke and Iginla, the only thing that pisses me off about the Pens is how they were built (tanking). Not only do Crosby and Malkin mean pretty much everything to that team, but others flock to the Penguins just because of them. And then people credit Shero for being such a great GM when so much of his job is simply letting things run their course.

I will never hate any team more than the habs. But seeing the pens lose in the first round is going to be amazing.

I see no reason why we couldn't do both but it is always sweet to beat the Habs in the playoffs.

Right now I'll take the Pens because of those playoff knockouts in the early 90's. We've pretty much been through the mill with the Habs and erased a curse or two, so let's settle some business with Pittsburgh. Long way to go, though.

I'd rather see the Bruins knock out the Habs

but if the Habs faced the Pens, I'd rather seen the Habs win that series.

Only because we know the Flyers aren't making the playoffs this year? Haha. The Marian Hossa clause could be in effect, but the one thing that makes this Pitt team so daunting with both Morrow and Iginla (and Murray knocking people around on the back end) is they're such a good grinding team. If there were blue-collar additions to a white-collar club, I'd be cynical. But they are exactly what the Bruins needed and they got both guys. Yikes. You hope the balance of competition will punish them for grabbing all the candy, and it's possible the Bruins are up to the task if they -- for instance -- got Clowe in that third-line LW spot, Kelly came back, Pevs sllid to RW and never looked back so Boston had a third line again, and a veteran PMD would be nice. Let's not forget the Bruins are trying to break another mold this year, by trying to win the Cup with a rookie in their top four. Last team to accomplish that? Maybe the Flyers with Jimmy Watson in '74?

This. Rangers are built for a tough battle and could find their way vs the pens.

They keep playing like this, there not going to beat either of those teams

Hell they're not even going to get passed the first round, unless they pull their non-caring heads out of their non-trying a***s

I'd like to see the Bruins eliminate complacency this year. Can you add that as an option?
