Tikkanen, Richter, Messier and Leetch great players. Still I was always more Gilmour, Clark and Potvin guy. Always followed Teemu Selanne and other Finns(don't like Saku Koivu that much, but I respect), but my favourite club has always been Toronto.

Odd and funny, because I have never been in Canada. I would love to and will visit Toronto someday. It would be some much easier there. To be a fan, here your always alone with your passion. There are many NHL enthusiasts but not that many pure fans of one team or Leafs fans.

I just can't write short reply... Damn.
