That's what it always comes down to ehh.. let's compare, whose is bigger, please learn to accept yourself.


Habsaku, the Leafs actually trap quite a bit now and it makes their big second line especially dangerous. They don't really run and gun near as much as they used to.
Porn's right, the Leafs can beat anybody. Doesn't mean they will but it 's more possible this year than any in the last couple decades. Unfortunately the top 6 in the east are so close that it's up for grabs. A healthy Mtl. team with improved offense, Souray back and the pre requisite hot goalie can beat anybody too. That's why they play the games though.

i'm not sure how you could say the list sucks... before passing judgement read up on them. Colaiacovo, steen are both superb prospects.

Saturdays game will be amazing!!!

I completely agree! once the playoffs start... the season means bubkiss and its a whole new world where ANYTHING can happen. one bad game can evolve into a whirlwind of trouble or the opposite. and injury can help a team or hinder a team... WHO KNOWS I accept the prospects the leafs have... and actually like them quite a bit. Not as strong as some teams... but... its what we've got. some goodies... some nasty hard candy.. its like halloween!

Just like the pro-line advertisement:
"Because anything can happen, anyone can win."

It's one big crap shoot if you ask me this year.

Moreso than most years. The top 6 have little difference in them and the Habs with goaltending, it's going to be a first round nightmare for poolers because there are no real favorites in the 3/6 and 4/5 matchups no matter who they are.

i agree in fact i always said this is going to be a very very special playoff year, theres going to be some amazing series's going on in the east, while i think dallas and detriot will dominate the west.
i cant wait becuase we are soo under-rated right now(as i like it) if our goaltending is hot and our boys can raise there intensity and play there system we could seriously cause big trouble to our oponents, i hope we get far becuase this is the first time in a long time i havnt seen us in the playoffs, its been 6 years i havnt seen the habs in the playoffs im overly excited, as i missed our first round upset in '02 due to millitary obligations.

my god man 6 FREEK"N YEARS, im sooo excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So true, guardian of the goats (or is it the pretzel?). As much as Leafs, Bruins and Sens fans all look to the Habs as an easy first round matchup, I don't think there will be any easy first round matchups in the East. Assuming NYI get in, they will have Yashin and Parrish back and have been quite competitive for a long haul without them.

As for the bigger teams, that is a real concern. We don't match up well against the bigger teams like Toronto, Philly and Boston. That being said, the real wild card in goaltending. I like Theo and he can steal you games in the playoffs. Belfour's health is a concern as if he gets injured, Kidd is just not an option. Even the biggest Leaf fan has to roll their eyes when he plays. Philly added Burke to complement Esche. Burke is a big game player, but how much is left in the tank, and Esche is also relatively untested in the big game. Boston has Potvin and Raycroft. The kid is having a super year, but the playoffs are a whole different story. He is the guy they will be going with to start though, no doubt about it.

NJ has Marty the Great, but without a fully healthy Stevens (or even without him entirely), they are a less threatening team. Teams can beat them over 7 games, although they are as well coached and as cohesive a team as it gets. Then the Sens, the poster boys of playoff underachievement. Is this the year of the final breakthrough? Ask the Sens fans, if Lalime screws up even once in the post season, the Corel Centre will erupt and make Breezer bashing look like a love-in. I would really like to see that franchise win a cup (while the Habs are still rebuilding of course), but I wouldn't put money on it right now.

We've done very well against the Wings lately. I think we could beat them in a series, especially with Joseph in nets.

If Toronto does not win the cup this season, they are screwed for the next 10 years. Your prospect's are so withered and diluted due to your aquiring abunch of old men that once all these old guys retire (which will happen very soon)

Oh and when was the last time the leafs won a cup?

1966-67? Ouch musta been a long boring childhood



Its all in good fun, Hockey rivalries rule!

PS

If you want to compare prospects

Habs = #1
Leafs = #26

I have a weird feeling that Sens might change Lalime's services to Prusek's right in the middle of the 1st round. In some strange reason my B's are 1-0-1-0 this season against the Sens with Lalime, 0-2-0-1 (2 losses were shutouts) against Prusek. He might be young and unproven bu a nice option if Lalime faulters.
