I agree, I try not to stereotype, but so many of them are just blatant homers that they give themselves a bad reputation among hockey fans. In every conversation with any other teams' fans they have to let you know that Montreal has won 24 Cups and your team has not. Also, the argument than Montrealers know more about hockey is even more ludicrous. I'm sure anyone from Toronto or anyone else in Canada will feel the same way. I'm sure as a whole Canadians have more hockey knowledge than Americans, but you definitely cannot say that the American individuals that are hardcore hockey followers like Canadians are inferior fans. I just think that a lot of Montreals' fans think that the Canadiens are God's chosen team, so they think everyone else is inferior to them.
