So how are you feeling about a Habs Leafs first-round series?

I don’t like it one bit. And it’s coming at us like a freight-train. The Toronto Sun is reporting that some number-cruncher is saying there’s a 59-percent chance that the Leafs will face the Habs in the first round.

I say it’s pretty bloody likely. The Canadiens are in fourth place with 59 points and Toronto is in fifth place with 55 points. Both have three games left and guess who’s playing who on the last game of the season? On Saturday night. On Hockey Night in Canada. Leafs-Habs, with home-ice advantage on the line. That’s some kinda Saturday night.

And I don’t like the idea of a Leafs-Habs series one bit. I’d take almost any other team in the East. Toronto holds a 3-1 edge in the series, including two blow-outs – one 6-zip (you remember that one, the one you see in your nightmares every night), another 5-1.

Something happens when the Leafs play the Habs. The Loafs somehow suddenly become a good team. (Eds. note: How is that possible?) They see the red of the Habs sweaters and they’re mysteriously transformed from journeymen players into superstars. And Les Boys go super neurotic. Our good pal Carey Price does not play well against the Leafs. (Eds. note: He doesn’t play well against the Bruins either. Actually he doesn’t play well period right now.)

So let’s hope this doesn’t happen. I know it’s the CBC’s wet dream and it would be one hilarious media circus in this country. But I’d still prefer the Islanders. Or any one else but the Leafs.
