In our House, we root for teams in this order
(1) Canadian Teams - Leafs, Oilers, Jets, Senators, Vancouver, Calgary
(2) O6 Teams - Leafs, Bruins, Red Wings, Blackhawks, Rangers
We do not cheer for the Montreal Canadiens at all. I have pulled for the Habs only twice in my life - the famous New Years' Eve game against the Red Army and the 1976 Stanley Cup Finals.
I am not anti-French or anti-Quebec at all, and used to pull for the Nordiques when they existed.
Why you ask ?
In my 49 years on this earth there has never been a Habs fans that showed any humility or respect for my Toronto Maple Leafs - even when I returned respect and admiration to their chosen club. To my mind, Habs Fans are the last generous and most venal hockey fans in Canada.
