I was thinking the same thing going in to last night.

When was the last time the beasts in the west, and maybe the best team in the league at the moment, headed into Ontario and were very fortunate to come away with a split.

I think it is safe to say, for now anyway, that both team are very good.

I think this is true.

It really is interesting to watch insiders having to deal with the Leaf hype machine. Over and over again you see guys like Gord Miller, Fay Ferraro and Bob MacKenzie stop an enthusiastic Leaf broadcaster and explain that the Sens are really a very good team.

I believe this Leaf misery of the last 10 years leads Leaf fans to want others to suffer in the same way that they have. After years of humiliation they want others to know what it is like to have everyone laugh at and ridicule your team.

Leaf fans want to see something that is not there.

The Leafs are performing well above their defensive limitations. More teams will start to play them the way the Sens took them apart on Saturday night. But, so far they are doing good. I fear too many of you are so bitter over past hurts that you are not really enjoying the great start the Leafs have had.

Really. Scoreboard matters. Saturday night we had a huge scoreboard. Now you want to talk about something else.

Don't think the Sens could win a 7 game series against the Leafs. There's too much skill on Toronto and Babcock would diffuse Boucher's system after a couple of games.

I'm sure it would really help to boost attendance in Ottawa if the Leafs came in and played catch for a whole game the way Philly did against Tampa.

- BetterCallSaul

How many almost won points do you need to win a 7 game series? Boucher is made for that kind of hockey. I'm a bit worried that if this matchup happens the Leafs may lose their perfect 4 - 0 all time playoff series wins record over the sens, especially if the Leafs back into the playoffs again with all of those loser points they've amassed.

I know it happened before recorded history but it's nice to have an unblemished record against the little brother team out east. I mean we love them and all but it is kind of funny and cute to see them get all riled up and rattled over their lack of status in the hockey world outside of the NHL allowing them to hang up a few false cup banners that have nothing to do with the current franchise. It was pretty nice of the league to consider the feelings of such an insecure fledgling fan base who even after an entire generation still gets outnumbered in their own stadium every time either of the eastern Canadian teams with a legitimate history come to town.

Still does not change the fact that Sens and Leafs will meet in the first round of the playoffs unless the Leafs have a second half collapse?

Playoffs start today. Sens and Leafs are a first round match.

Boucher can't believe his luck. Sens are built to play against teams like the Leafs.

I have no difficulty with the standings. I am very happy with the Sens start to the season. You understand that your focus on standings is merely a diversion by you to take the focus off the the head to head match up of Saturday night.

The age question is somewhat inappropriate. It is not polite to notice the scrambled postings of those who drink too much. My opinions are my opinions and I am neither too young or too old to have them.

So, we have a deal. You don't ask about my age and I won't ask about your personal life.
