In any case, I don't think they are particularly anti-Habs, moreso they're slow to praise and quick exaggerate team problems.

I suppose RDS is supportive towards the Habs, but I have the feeling they're stuck in the old glory days during the dynasties with many prominent Quebecois players on the team. They also like to cheer on players from Quebec on other teams almost as much (like Patrice Bergeron).
In what world have the Leafs gotten more admiration? They've been laughed at for a long time now.
