    Expect a little better effort from the boys. Habs coming in on a back to back situation after playing in Ottawa on Wednesday. No real excuse to lose this one. Just have to match the Habs effort.

    Would be real swell if the PP actually did something. The whole pass-pass-pass-pass-pass-pass-pass-pass-fumble the puck-pass-pass-flubbed shot is not really producing much.

    Assume Captain Jack back in net and maybe we'll see Rittich on Saturday? I say go with the best roster possible in this one, and start resting in the final three. No practice today (Tue), so we'll see what things look like at tomorrow's skate.

    Since the Hab’s won the Stanley cup last game I feel they must be fatigued for this game. Leafs will win.

    Habs realized they actually have a shot at not playing the Leafs in round 1 so a bunch of people have become "available"

    We better win a couple, I don't see Vancouver winning a game from the Oilers.

    Edmonton plays Vanvouver 3 more times... Vancouver not going to win a game. We need 5 of the next 8 possible points. This is far from a lock.

    I highly doubt Edmonton wins 8 straight games going into the playoffs. They are not a good enough team.

    They may only lose once, or lose a couple of times in OT or something, but I highly doubt they win 5 in a row. Every Oiler loss counts the same as a Leafs win towards those 5 points.

    Folks being so certain that one team literally can’t beat another in a game is so HF. Even the most unbalanced matchup league-wide is like 60:40 in any given game. TBL can’t guarantee a win against DET.

    Edmonton will lose a game here and there folks. But thankfully we don’t have to worry because 1st in our control.

    So an Edmonton loss and a Leafs win + an overtime loss by the Leafs gets Leafs 1st? How hard can that be? (Leafy thing to do would be to lose out and Edmonton to win out with McDavid scoring 10 against the Canucks)

    I think the leafs will finish with 77 points. The Oilers will end with 73/74

    Winning the division is meaningless in hockey. I want the to win the division, because I don't want to go into the playoffs on a losing run but winning the division quite literally means zilch. You have to win the division in the playoffs not regular season. I just laugh at how some people put so much emphasis on winning it during the regular season. If they win it in the regular season but not make it into the final 4, nobody is going to remember who finished 1st.

    Well we are all different and I would like to see a division-winning Banner in the rafters our 1st in 21 years. I would love the bragging rights as best team in Canada.

    Normally maybe but Vancouver is in the midst of one jam packed schedule, playing what was it 19 games in 38 days. They are done, its at the point where they pull the goalie with 7 minutes left one game. Losing 6 straight now and once they are mathematically eliminated, maybe after Thursday's game, whatever energy they have left will be zapped.

    I must have missed something, Montreal hasn't won the cup since 1993 and if it weren't for Kerry Fraser 1986, is this a metaphor for the fans and player's reaction?

    Wasn’t the Kerry Fraser incident in 1993?

    yes that's why Montreal's last cup likely would be 1986, which they won legitimately although Roy mostly won it.

    yes it was a tongue in cheek comment. They were celebrating over there like they won the cup.

    That's why you should keep away from other team's forums.

    I want to be a mod just so I can kick other fans out of our forums. Especially the come in piece ones that frequent our PGT's

    It's a cute narrative, but no. Vancouver will win some games.

    I don't mind other fans but most are here just to troll. Or claim to be Leaf fans

    Fine with this if it's just a one game thing.
