That said, since everyone makes a big deal of it, I've always wanted Montreal to be the last Canadian city to win. And the next. I was...slightly relieved, when the Lightning won.
Was getting tired of that red mile stuff. That and despite beating us on the way, Vinny and Marty are hometown boys. Didn't appreciate them in that second rd, though. The Habs are a very American team FTR. Still Montreal's team. (Reverse is pretty much true for Tbay.)
This is one of the reasons why I'm surprised this poll isn't in favor of Tampa more. Since Canadians make a big deal about the cup returning to a team in Canada, I'd imagine that Hab fans would enjoy rubbing it in that they are the last team north of the border to win it.
When it comes to national pride: Olympics, so I'm quite content.
That's what I don't get about Canadians who root for other teams north of the border after their team is out. Isn't rooting for Canada suppose to be for the Olympics and other national tournaments? If a team from Canada and USA play each other in the SCF, I won't automatically root for the team from the US; I reserve that for the Olympics.
If you care who I cheered for in the 3 cups finals following this one, I went for Edmonton over Carolina, Anaheim over Ottawa, and Vancouver over Boston.
