That's why I take great joy in giving those teams a beating (of course not as much as beating the Rangers). I would not say it's a Canadian citizen thing, Ottawa, Edmonton and Calgary have great fans in my estimation. I'm not sure about Winnipeg yet.

So, I hope the Isles give the Habs a good old fashioned beatdown!

Judging by your comments, I'd say that Habs fans are the Yankees fans of the NHL?

I always chuckle when I see "Canadian" threads on the main board. Who really cares if a team is based in Canada or US? Is the difference b/t the two the first thing you think of? I guess if you are Canadian, you might...
