In response to ThatHockeyGuy's comment:
Well, one thing about games in hand. They still need to be won.
Anyway, why wouldn't you want to have the 4 seed?
The way things are going, it seems as though Toronto will be the 5 seed. If that is the case, then that would be a great matchup for the Bruins in the first round. The Bruins have absolutely dominated Toronto in past years.
In round 2, you can assume that at least one of the top four teams are going to lose (going by past years), thus allowing you to avoid Pitt (if they don't lose themselves).
Seems like a great scenario to me.
Leaf's are a team with nothing to loose no pressure on them there fans are just happy they are even in playoffs,the one thing i thought the Bruin's would have big advantage over leafs is goaltending,but if you haven't seen the way Reimer has been playing for them lately there giving up 40 -50 shots a game and Reimer is stealing them games,so not sure if i would give any advantage to Bruins,personally i would like to see Leafs and Habs play i hate both of them .
No pressure? kidding right? 365 days a year pressure like no other city. Fans happy to be in? Again kidding. Leafs will turn faster then any fans in the league.
bruins have dominated them over the last few seasons.
Goalie- advantage bruins.
Def- advantage Bruins even though i was giving full credit to the leafs defense earlier in the year. Chara, no one has him but the Bruins.
Offense- im calling it a draw but give the edge to the Bs in depth, experience.
Play the leafs 5 on 5 and we win in 5 games. 6 max.
i dont care where we finish as long as healthy. It takes one good period or one good game to get rolling. We wont pay the caps, rangers, pens or montreal. Im not scared of the leafs sens or islanders. If anyone is dont watch. none of those teams will push us to 7. None will beat us. Of those three the nyi make me think the most. Nabby can get sneaky hot, tavares and a mobile def and they have some tough players there as well so no bruin bully tactics
