But more importantly, who are you picking?

Leaf your picks in the comments below.

Some extra takes on the Leafs:

Ryan Hobart

Toronto over Boston, 7 games. Of course this series is going to 7 games. Did you really expect anything else? Leafs turn up the depth scoring and are able to overtake the Bruins, despite their talent.

Connor Bromley

I think the Buds go to the conference finals this year. Boston are great but have nothing to be scared about beyond their top line. We have four deep lines that can score.

 

That’s Kappy!

No game sevens in the first round. That means no game seven revenge for the Buds, because they won’t even need seven games to take care of the Bruins. The Leafs and Bruins will play each other to a 2-2 series tie before Toronto takes hold of the series and never looks back. The Leafs will eliminate the Bruins in Toronto and advance to the second round.

Thomas Williams 

I am expecting to go into cardiac arrest before this series ends. Both teams will have dominant games, winning by 3+ goals and multiple games going into overtime. But there is no doubt in my mind that our sweet boys will be the ones continuing on after this series is done. Good guys always win in the end, right?

Scott Maxwell

I don’t necessarily think the Buds are the better team in this series, but I think if the right moves are made, the Leafs could pull off the win. I also don’t wanna pencil them in for another first round loss again

So what say you? Who’s winning round one?
