Your first mistake was arguing with a Bruins fan.
The Bruins will be insufferable for a while. We're talking about a fan base and and organization who claimed to be the best for years based solely on the fact that they had moral victories. They'd lose the game but goon it up and "win" a fight or two and claim victory.
Now they've actually won the cup they have some bragging rights. Unfortunately we'll never really know how tainted the victory was, they received MAJOR support from the league.
It has to be all-time, not recent.
Would you rather be a fan of a team that has a history of choking in the playoffs, particularly against their main rivals... or the fan of a team that has a proud tradition of winning, one that doesn't hang rafters from the ceiling just for winning their division or having the most point in the league. One that doesn't have any jerseys hanging from the rafters from anyone who didn't win the cup. One that you don't have to look up who our teams all-time best players are. Most casual hockey fans (of any team) know the names Richard, Beliveau, Dryden, Vezina, Plante, Robinson, Gainey, Geoffrion, Harvey, Roy, Lafleur.... After Orr, Esposito, Bourque and maybe Neely you have to google their history.
The Bruins celebrate trips to the finals.... we celebrate cups.
