For people in the Montreal area ...
 
Being a Canadiens fan in Southern Ontario is great. With an abundance of us (and fans of other teams) it provides a unique rivalry with the local Maple Leaf supporters.

Much has been said of all the legions of Toronto fans who make the pilgrimage to Montreal when their beloved Leafs are in town.

While I don't doubt there are Leaf fans in the city of Montreal (likely those that remember the Original Six era). :biglaugh:

Who is the most popular team in Montreal AFTER the Canadiens? Toronto? Boston? Pittsburgh? Detroit? Colorado? :dunno: If possible, give a reason. Thanks! :clap:

True_Canadiens 07-30-2006 09:22 PM

Boston by Far. Then Avs (Nordiques) and then maybe the leafs. But the Bruins are verry popular.

Le Tricolore 07-30-2006 09:23 PM

I'd say Colorado because they used to be the Nordiques.

Bill McNeal 07-30-2006 09:28 PM

The Penguins I've found have an abnormally large following, mostly because of Lemieux no doubt.

CrAzYNiNe 07-30-2006 09:38 PM

avs because of nords and roy

Louis Houde 07-30-2006 09:41 PM

well, pinguins for Mario Lemieux and Sidney Crosby

than, old people like Chicago, and detroit

Le Tricolore 07-30-2006 09:41 PM

I saw someone with a Theodore Avs' jersey. I smiled.

I've never seen anyone like Chicago. I see a lot of Detroit, though.

My dad was a Hawks fan growing up..

After seeing all those scrapbooks, I can say they're probably my 2nd favourite team now..

Habs
Nords
Hawks
Flames

:D

Russeltown 07-30-2006 10:07 PM

Avalanche for Roy and ex-Nords...

or Pittsburgh for sure!

Team_Spirit 07-30-2006 10:08 PM

Most popular teams after the Habs are :

1-Boston
2-Pitsburgh
3-Colorado
4-Ottawa

DerekT 07-30-2006 10:13 PM

We have a sadly large number of Leafs fans too though.

KaptainKourage* 07-30-2006 10:14 PM

And a bunch of « fans » who always cheer for the #1 team in the standing or stanley cup winner ..that make me sick

Renholder 07-30-2006 10:21 PM

I saw two guys walk into my workplace wearing a Zherdev and Nash Jersey...oddness.

probably from ohio.. cant see otherwise how..

mikeg 07-30-2006 10:22 PM

it's boston, there's no doubt there. toronto fans are not permanent residents... mostly just the students at our universities. i'm in agreement with the rest here.. avs and pens are pretty high up there.

Slick Nick 07-30-2006 10:52 PM

I think Boston is by far the most popular team after the Habs.. I remember past series agains the Bruins, in every bar we went there was at least one 50yo pure laine québecois hardcore Bruins fan. Even a 45yo guy at my job who's a proud fench from Marseille.. dosen't follow hockey too much is a genuwine Bruins fan. He exlained me it was about the Bostom supremacy of his youth... dunno..

Hockeymom67 07-30-2006 10:54 PM

I alos believe that Avs are the next team after Montreal

Fattal 07-30-2006 10:57 PM

I would say Colorado and then all the Canadien teams except Toronto, so Ottawa, Calgary, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton.

ChemiseBleuHonnete 07-30-2006 11:03 PM

There's a lot of Boston fans. Colorado and Pittsburg is up there too, and on a lesser extent there's the sens fans.

CaptCrunch 07-30-2006 11:34 PM

Its probably a toss up between the Avalanche (old nordiques fans) and the Bruins (from the Raymond Bourque era).

waffledave 07-31-2006 09:03 AM

A ton of Bruins fans. It sickens me. Even my dad is a closet Bruins fan because of Bobby Orr. Every time the Bruins play at the Bell Centre the fans are at least 25% Bruins fans, and they're not tourists either.

I also see alot of French Canadian Ottawa fans. Don't know why, maybe they are from Hull or something. My friend's fiance is hardcore estie ********ie chain smoking beer drinking stereotype and is best buddies with Mike Ribeiro and Ribeiro's family, and he HATES the Habs and is a hardcore Ottawa fan. I don't know if he's from Hull though, it's possible.

It's hilarious though, because my friend is a hardcore Habs fan and most of their marital problems stem from the hate they have for their respective teams. My friend's car is pretty famous in Montreal, it's the blue Subaru WRX with the huge Canadiens logo on the back and her Fiance loves driving it, although he says it sickens him to have that giant logo on the back.
