Ugh. This is not what I would have preferred...
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

The Leafs have waited 5 years for this chance, time for some payback!

Boston in 6. Hope it doesn't come to that though...

It's kind of crazy that we're here and this is now normal.  Two seasons ago Leafs were 30th (OK, they held back a bunch of young guys on purpose so the team might have been better than 30th) and now 2 short years later, we're not only expecting playoffs, but we're expecting some form of playoff success.  95 points last year, 105 points this year, I can honestly say this team might grow to be 110+ points in the next few seasons.  I never thought i'd live to be a fan of a team that was this good. 

Enjoy.

This has been the best season since I began following the team.  For me, playoff success would be beating BOS (i.e., winning a round).  That's a step forward.

I would be disappointed if they were blown out by the Bs, swept or in 5 games. 

However, if they do beat BOS then I think the confidence boost would hike their chances in a second-round matchup against TB.

Leafs I noticed were getting much better at stopping 3rd period meltdowns. Learning that alone makes them a stronger team this time around. If they can keep their confidence high, all that skill and speed will naturally follow them around. Leafs in 5

I think we beat them with speed.

If Bergeron is going to focus on Matthews than Marner should be able to step up.  I also see JVR coming up big as well.

I can't stand Marchand or the B's.  Let's get some revenge.

I like that the Leafs got better as the season went on.  Early season lineup didn't have Dermott, Kapanen, Johnsson, those 3 guys alone make our depth way better.  Hopefully video-game Marner shows up and propels that 2nd line to mucho offense.  Matthews seems like he's back and ready to go, I can't wait for this series to get going.
