I'll give the Habs credit on their season. I think they'll be a strong team for years ahead. Bergevin seems to know what he's doing. For our Olympics sake, I hope Price rebounds in a big way next season.
Don't want to turn this into a debate but Montreal has the biggest fan base, not Toronto. It's not a knock on TO, it's normal that the most successful team in the history of the sport has the biggest fan base. Just like the Yankees in MLB or the Celtics and Lakers in NBA.
TO have a huge fan base as well, but not the largest.
They get the most coverage because CBC and TSN headquarters are in Toronto, they're the local team. It's only normal.
