How is that not every bit as disingenuous as them coming to root for us now?
I HATED Detroit forever after that. I cheered for Giguere and the Ducks back in 2003 when he stonewalled them in the first round. I wanted to see Detroit fail for what they did to us.
When they came up against the Pens in the Cup finals both years, I felt so conflicted about rooting for them, but I did. I wanted Detroit to damage the team that had knocked us out.
I don't see how cheering for us over the Habs is much different, other than that our rivalry is more fresh than the Philly/Detroit inferiority complex that the '97 swept gave me...I dunno, I just think it's a little weird to fly off the handle about the idea of Pens fans rooting for us, but then also go root for the Wings against them.
