Meanwhile, you have all these people who cheer for whoever they're playing against due to some imaginary rivalry between Edmonton and Vancouver. It's kind of sad actually. More people cheered for the Flames in 04 than there are cheering for the Canucks.
Yeah, certainly disagree with this statement. All divisional rivalries have a certain undercurrent of a rivalry to them, and anyone who has been to Canuck games at Rexall within the last 5 years will undoubtedly feel even stronger about it.

However, it should be stressed that there is no right or wrong team to cheer for under any circumstance. Whether you want Vancouver to win or lose, it's all a personal decision, and one that really doesn't have to be justified one way or another.
