Playoffs tell you a lot about the future.

Do not discount the fact that game 6 was played with Claesson and Harpur and that Wideman (healthy scratch) and Borowiecki (injured) were not in the line up.

Next year the Sens will start Chabot, Harpur and Claesson on the back end. Their defence is going to get a lot bigger, younger and faster with a lot more firepower.

Phaneuf and Ceci played a monster game. As the Bruins did everything to try and stop Karlsson they also made it too easy for Phaneuf and Ceci. They recorded an unheard of plus 90 CF% in game 6. The fancy stat guys are still working on trying to figure out and explain the meaning of their number.

Dig up the list of all the writers who had the Leafs out in 5, they mainly had the Sens out quickly too.

Hockey reference and money puck also had them as the underdogs.

I think the vegas odds were against Ottawa too, but I don't pay much attention to those, so I can't be sure.

YEAH, who are those guys .............. 6 games is SO much greater of a difference than 5 games!!!!!!


Those dummies....... they all predicted the leafs would be bounced in either 4, 5 or 6 games ........... and they were so far off it was ridiculous!!!

No, just pointing out predictions, for what they're worth.

Hope the series goes beyond 4 games, as I have secured tickets to game #5.

Lets put things in perspective.

Both the Senators and leafs benefited form things that happened to other teams.

Stamkos injury

Eichel injury

Florida going all in on analytics, and trading away two of their best dmen and firing the coach as a result

I suspect if Florida "stood pat" and returned with basically the same team that won the division the season before, and if Buffalo and Tampa had Eichel and Stamkos healthy for the entire season ............ then probably neither Ontario team make the playoffs.

why do you reply to posts and not actually address the question?

Pretty sure I shed some light on the unexpected achievements of the two Ontario Based teams.

Most "Experts" did not see either team making the playoffs, and saw Tampa, Florida and perhaps Buffalo finishing higher than they all did ........... and the two Ontario teams benefited from the reasons those three teams failed to meet expectations.

I know you want all the "Experts" to pump the tires of the leafs, and perhaps deflate the Senators tires a bit ............ you want your team to be the darling of the "Experts" ......... when it really does not matter...because so many unpredictable things can happen over season that can hurt and hinder a teams chances of making the playoffs, and in turn, benefit the other teams in the division.

I'm no expert, and I suspect no one here is either, but IF both Tampa, Florida and Buffalo get their acts together, and their respective Stars remain healthy all (next) season ........... both Ottawa and toronto will have their work cut out for them, if they assume today, they're playoff bound next season because they made the playoffs this season.
