    I will give McDavid a lot of credit burt I can't see Edmonton going far with that goaltending.

    GO LEAFS !

    They’re pretty bad but like the Jets if they win the first game are they not due for a winning streak? That’s my big concern playing teams that have had long losing periods just prior to the playoffs. Also if they happen to get Gally, Drouin, Weber and Price back that could give them a huge lift.

    On paper Leafs should sweep them but there is a rivalry between the teams so I’ll say the Habs will win one and maybe another if Price is capable of stealing games still.

    Did you know that the Leafs despite not having won a playoff series since 2004 actually have more playoff series wins than the Habs since 1993?

    Crazy. We’ve done shit all for nearly 20 years and the Habs still haven’t been able to get more series wins than us since their last Cup.

    The way I see it; every team that makes playoffs one way or another more or less is there because they are decent in the division.

    Dubas has paid 4 forwards 50% of the cap to score. Whether it is against the habs or any other team. This team will go as far as the 4 guys take us.

    It could be habs with price or jets with helly; if this team can't score then something is wrong with the roster. Leafs roster IMO is a lot better than we've had in any past playoffs.

    We have players that can grind/play boards and a decent top4 on D. Once we get Bogo back I will be even more comfortable. Our only weak position is our goalie. Jack is good but he isn't proven goalie but hey Binnington wasn't proven either ;)

    Leafs are stacked compared to other teams in the division; if Leafs can't make the conference finals this season then quite frankly I don't even know what to say.....

    In the end, winning is all that matters regardless of the opposition whether it is price/weber/gallagar or helly/scheifle/Ehlers/Statsny/Dubois etc...

    Leafs gotta find a way to win.

    I think it's pretty annoying that the North division playoffs are starting on the 19th just so they can go through with completely pointless Canucks vs Calgary games. Obviously it's going to lead to a more condensed schedule than US teams will have to deal with

    We are missing Hyman, Foligno too. Those two are big pillars and work their asses off.

    Smith's having a great year for them, their goaltending looks like anything but a weak spot to me.

    Our playoffs not starting till the 19th because of the Canucks/Flames games is sheer stupidity.
    I guess it gives our guys more time to heal up (i.e. Foligno, Hyman, etc.)

    Sure but you never know with goalies. Look at Binnington absolutely bombing against Vancouver last year despite them being heavily outplayed.

    Winnipeg has 3-4 players better than anyone on the Habs.

    I’d be worried having Campbell in net and faltering against players like Connor, Scheifele. Habs? No problem. Their biggest threat is Toffoli and let’s be honest, if that’s the guy who is your biggest threat, your team just isn’t good.

    He practiced today but no amount of practice is going to help him replicate a playoff game against the shooters we have on this team.
