It's not strange .............. leaf fans are always bragging about how much money the leafs make, for ever, because they've not been able to match the Senators dominance on the ice for more than a decade now ............. so they harp on about TV ratings and attendance .........

Ottawa has played 82 playoff games, since 2005 .............. the leafs only 13.

So lets say the Senators have hosted 40 playoff games, of their 82 total, and the leafs 6 home playoff games.

So my point was that the Senators have made more money, by playing approximately 6 and one half times as many home playoff games since 2005 ................. way more money.

I think the problem is Toronto. It is not just hockey. They just talk a big game. But in the end they always seem to underachieve expectations.

You guys achieved the 28th overall pick... to help along that eternity in mediocrity.

Gee, I think the goal was to advance as far as a team can in the Stanley Cup Playoffs ............. who give a flying fox fart about where you select in the draft.

Can't help but wonder if the Sens had scored in that last overtime how they would have matched up with Nashville.

What a great season.

The joy was in the journey.

Yet, the memories still remain warm and sweet.

A lot of the local sport media people thought that Ottawa would have had an easy time with Nashville in the Finals, but I don't think that would have been realistic, now that we've seen them tie up the series ...................... but, Sens fans can hold their heads high, as the Senators gave us a great post season run that established our team as one of the top teams in the NHL this past season ............... and it will be a hard season to match next season, as other teams in the division will more than likely improve on this years' season..................... and I don't know if Ottawa will ever recover from having to select 28th overall in the Entry draft .......... this will certainly set them back years........ according to leaf fans that is ...

Doubt that, but will admit that Nashville plays very well at home, and even though Ottawa would have hand home ice for the finals, it would have been as close of a series as we're seeing now ............ as the difference between the Penguin and Senators came down to one goal.

Pens outshot the sens 242-197
So far Nashville is outshooting the Pens 123-91

from that we can determine that Nashville would have outshot the Sens 400-17 and swept the series

You're assuming that Ottawa and Pittsburgh play the same defensive style, which could not be further from the truth.

Nashville is now playing a similar defensive style, that Ottawa used vs their opponents in the three rounds of the playoffs they played ................. so it's obvious that the Predators saw what Ottawa was doing vs the Penguins, and the success they had........ and took a page or two from the Senators playbook.


Anyways, we'll never know how a Nashville vs Ottawa series would have played out ....... I know you leaf fans fantasize about how the leafs woulda, coulda, shoulda all the time ....... so I'll leave the pro leaf fantasy dreaming to you and yours.

Its better this way. At least now you can pretend they Sens had a chance, oh you took the Pens to OT in game 7.. so close blah blah

If they won and then got demolished in the finals you would have a bitter taste.

oh god. You guys are so pathetic. A couple of rounds against some battered opponents, the senaturds still got bounced, and you think you're special.

Hell, at least the Leafs gave one of the top teams a hard time, when they were actually healthy.

The senatards are a mess. A cinderella run doesn't change that.

The bitter taste is in your mouth, once the leafs, the league leader in loser points, backed into the last WC spot, and then were handily sent to the golf course by the Capitals.

IF the Senators had made it to the Finals, neither they or the Preds would have been demolished ............ the series would be quite similar to what we're seeing, and would have been a great run regardless of who would have won.


You, as a leaf fan, just can't stand the fact that the Senators have played 82 playoff games since 2005, including an appearance in the Finals, and two appearances in the Eastern Conference Finals........... and the leafs have only 13 measly playoff games, two first round loses, over the same period of time.

With each and every post you make, it just solidifies your complete frustration that the leafs are, by miles and miles, the inferior team in Ontario .......... so we all understand your need to vent, and make up fantasy series outcomes, to sooth your broken dreams of the leafs ever catching up the accomplishments of the Senators.

I would be also I guess, if I had a team that was going nowhere, with not nearly enough coming up, with bad contracts, a cheap owner...

and who just landed the 28th overall pick in glorious fashion.

Love the Leaf fans who want to replace the scoreboard with opinion polls. Games are still played on the ice by real players scoring real goals.

Yes that 28th pick is going to be the straw that breaks the camels' back ............ Ottawa will never recover from it.

The entire franchise was totally dependent on selecting 20th (based on final standings and the Vegas team) .............. so having to select 8 places later will be the death kneel of the franchise ....... they will have had to fold the team this summer, and hold a dispersal draft....... don't know which team I'll be supporting next season...................... selecting 28th is a complete disaster for Ottawa.
