I don't like our chances no matter what if we go in cold. Simple as that.
Fair enough. I guess we'll see how it goes
Not even a little bit lol
I rather take my chances going through the Atlantic Division for the first and second round.
Rnd 1: 3rd place team in the league
Rnd 2: 1st place team in the league
Rnd 3: back2back defending champs
Rnd 4: 2nd place team in the league
we're really gonna earn this Cup.
Last night leafs set the franchise record -10 wins in a row at home. Think about it. It never happened before in 101 years.
They played Pit no less and most of the game you would pick wrong team if you were asked who were sc chaps on the ice. And Pit is hot as lava.
That was statement game after mini slump and come P.O. time teams should be worried. I don’t think leafs are playing at 100% power. They surely have couple more gears to go to as last night game shown.
Relax, get healthy, get fresher - this is what P.O. teams do at this point in the year. Even Pleks probably needed some time off due to heavy usage in mtl.
I will admit going into the game against Pittsburgh I thought they could compete with them, I just never expected them to be up 4-0 after the 2nd period and I think a lot of us did not expect that.
It wouldn't surprise me a bit if we faced WSH in the 3rd round, we'll see. Not that that makes the road any easier ...
You never expect to be up 4-0 but why wouldn't you think we can't compete with PIT? There isn't a team in the NHL that we can't compete with, even without Matthews and especially when we're playing at home. This is a very good hockey team, may as well get used to it because this is only the beginning.

*Based on current standings
I would easily take facing Boston over either the Penguins or Caps.
We won Saturday.
So we're making the playoffs again?
I think they'd all be very tough opponents for us myself.
Probably in the minority but I don't care who they face in the playoffs.
I can easily see them beating any team and just as easily see them going out in the first round.
Agreed. We're really good but so are other teams. This won't be easy.
Enough with the hand wringing, let's get on with this.
I don't care too much who we play in the 1st round, I wouldn't mind someone else taking out TB for us though.
Totally agree with the 2nd part. It's gonna be fun to be playing playoff hockey again with a scary team, it's been a long time!
Nope don't care either. Bring it on
LOL this thread is funny. Florida 8-1-1 in their last 1o games and cannot make up points on wild card teams. but ya lets be scared that they will make up 12 points on the Leafs.
Thanks. With the magic points, is it some combination of a Leaf win and Florida loss that inches us even closer to 3rd. So for example for each teams next game, a leaf win + florida loss would bring the magic points down to 16? Or is that simplifying it?
Exactly right Magic #Pts would drop to 16, Magic #Gms would drop to 8.
I'd be worried if I lived there. Being a low-lying gulf state n' all.
I think Florida could finish with around 100 points.
That's a pace of 12-3-1 for them to finish the season. Are you telling me you think the Panthers could finish with 25 points in their last 16 games, but the Leafs can get at least 13 points in 13?
They do have the Reimer
