I love PVR. This game then Baie-Comeau/Boisbriand later.

Go Sens/Armada!

Taking rivalries out of it for a moment, I think we should want Ottawa to win. Ottawa isn't a soft team by any means, but they would be the least physical of themselves, the leafs and Bs. It's good for us to play Ottawa because we avoid the drain from a first round physical series and Boston and Toronto will be a very exhausting series, and whoever wins that one would be banged up in round 2. Ottawa will be a tough opponent, but I think it's better for us to face them.

What the hell is that??

First, we will draft according to how far we go in the playoffs. So you're saying the best scenario is to be out in the first round?

Man, the goal of the game is not to draft higher...

gotta remember that if we play the laffs that we will practically be playing against 3 lines verses our 4 lines. that will make a big difference in the long run. their goons will not see the ice much, especially in montreal were we have last change. carlyle will not risk having their 4 th line out there against our top line. Did you notice how they where bottled up in their zone last night.

That makes very little sense. Even if the draft rankings were determined by the regular season (they aren't for playoff teams) you would rather lose the division to pick 1 spot before the Bruins?

Good friend of mine is a Sens fan. I'll be rooting for them tonight to win so that in two days, I can trash-talk him all series long.

In all honesty though, I don't care who the Habs play.

A Boston-Toronto series will be better. They can both support the type of physical game. Unfortunately for the leafs the majority of their toughness/scrapping ends with their 4th liners and Fraser.

Only reason I want the Sens to win would be to see how CBC justifies not picking the Habs/Sens series over Taraana.

A lot of viewers for the habs will watch it on RDS. Couple the fact that Boston and Toronto will hopefully be on a different night, both will push 3 mill, or more easily imo.

Different night or not, they'd pick Toronto/Boston and Vancouver/San Jose

Reported that Sens/Bruins wont start till Wednesday (according to NHL)
Rhianna is at the Bell Center May 1. So if Habs play the Sens, they wont start till Thursday.

So, if Sens win, we face them. If Sens lose in OT, they face Boston and we face Laffs.

I don't mind facing the Leafs in the playoffs. But I'll never root for the Bruins, ever. The two teams I hate the most. **** em. Plus, it would be sweet for those two to fight each other in the playoffs.

I don't like the Sens either. But I don't have a deep seeded hate for them.

For one of those rare times... Go Sens!

Personally if I'm the bruins I'd want to lose and play the Leafs, who they completely dominate.

We'll see but I'd like to play Toronto more than Ottawa, especially with Karlsson back and Anderson at the top of his game. Leafs are untested and have little playoff experience.

This is the correct answer. Plus the road to Stanley requires some gifts be bestowed from other series, I think the Leafs could take Boston which could do some dirty work for us. If these 2 so called "physical" teams bang each other up that would be a sweet bonus.

I'm totally mixed about this game. If the Bruins win, we play the Leafs, which is fine with me. We can definitely beat the Leafs. OTOH, if Ottawa wins we win the division, which is cool since we finished last last season.

I'm not really rooting for anyone since both results works for us.

Go Sens!

I don't care who we play between the Leafs and Sens but I'd rather see the Sens succeed than the Leafs so losing to them wouldn't be as bad.

I really don't care, it's a win win for me. I want Toronto, but I also want the North East division.
