I'm ok with facing Washington if we make it in. Wpg would be tougher because their home ice advantage would be significant with the whiteout and rabid fans. We tend to play well against Washington in the same way that we seem to always suck against TO on a Sat night.
As a rule I never cheer for matchups, ever. I wanted the second Chicago series as a Canucks fan, look how that went, then cheered for a Van-LAK series...So I never cheer for matchups. Let the cards get dealt and play your hand.
As an off comment, I'd love a Habs-Leafs series. The Habs were pissed at how cocky the Leafs were last night. They sparked a fire under PK, Gallagher and Price.
When the Sens clinch I will be shaving my almost year old beard and starting a new.
habs leafs. The expectations, media and the atmosphere would be intense. And their hf fan bases would provide alot of entertainment as the trolls would be out. But in all seriousness, that would be an amazing series.
Would also mean TSN would be covering us. So its win win all around for us.
i would hate to see either the habs or leafs in the first round. simply because during the regular season when we played these 2 teams, the crowd was 50/50 at Scotiabank. Can you imagine how it will be in the playoffs. The sens would never have home ice advantage.
