They lost all three games vs Washington this season 4-2, 6-5 & 4 -1

I would not bet any money on the leafs if they faced Washington in the first round ........ they'd have about a 10% chance of winning that series.

At 4 to 1, I think that's a great bet. I might put a little down on them, actually. $100 maybe?

other sites say 7 to 1 and 8 to 1 for both Washington and Chicago.

Hell, I might put $100 on each of them.

He said the leafs would have a 10% chance. So if someone is offering 9-1 odds, I would put some money down

against the caps?

I'd put 20 on the Leafs, just for the hell of it. Probably won't happen, but I'd take those odds.

with letang's injury, I think I'm gonna throw $100 on Washington to win the East, $100 on them to win the cup, $100 on Chicago to win the west, $100 on them to win the cup. Maybe like $50 on Montreal to win the East. They're 7 to 1 just to win the East.

The Oilers are at 17 to 1 for the cup. Tha'ts not a terrible bet.

Presidents' Trophy Winner often gets caught early in playoffs. If the Leafs play Washington I think they can surprise them. Washington does not perform up to their regular season performance.

So in the past 30 years, the President's Trophy winner has failed to come out of the first round only 6 times?

Sorry, but the Leafs get picked off in 5 games if they face the Caps...

I'd be willing to bet if you went through the 2nd through 16th league seeds, they'd all have worse records, in every round, than the presidents cup winner.

Yes there most certainly is ......... the leafs, who sit in the 8th seed, 2nd WC spot.

If they face the Caps in the first round, it's not going to be close.

I don't think there's any team in the East that wouldn't rather play the Sens than the Leafs.

They're a terrible possession team, can't bury the cup, and aren't good enough defensively to make up for their lack of offense. That's all there is to them. Unless drastic changes are made over the summer, they're likely to continue the regression everyone saw coming(except sens fans).


Sens don't belong in the playoffs, end of story.

Historically, there is only a slightly higher probability that the President's Cup winner will win the Stanley Cup than getting knocked out in the first round.

On the other hand, an 8th seed seldom gets to a Stanley Cup final.

Still say that the worse matchup for the Capitals is the Leafs regardless of the regular season results.

Scoreboard.

So, if we were to award the Stanley Cup on possession stats we would not have to bother with the playoffs. Who would win based on the numbers of today...which possession number would you use to declare your Cup winner?

Call me skeptical on your ability to analyze and predict the NHL...based on your recent posting history

Possession numbers indicate future success, standings indicate past.


Possession numbers showed Ottawa would regress, as we've seen.

Standings show that they're not one of the worst teams in the NHL.

Which, if you'll refer back to my previous comment, we know they are.
