Question to Habs fans

Are there any habs fans cheering for Canucks because of Higgins and Lappierre?

Edit:
Alright let me re phrase this question.
Canucks or Bruins? if a gun was pointed at your head.

I'm cheering for the Canucks 'cause it's in Canada. And 'cause I like watching them in the doubleheaders on Saturday night.

Pretty sure you won't see what you're bringing as a reason...especially with how it ended with both. Personnally, I always liked Lapierre, didn't feel he was used at his potential, and always thought that he could do a fine job. So I like the guy and I'm cheering for him. But that's not the main reason why the 'Nucks are my favorite team in the top 4 left.

Even though I didn't really want to at first, I found myself cheering the Canucks late in the Nashville series, but against Chicago I wanted them to lose to the Blackhawks.

It's been actually weird as hell seeing Higgins and Lapierre on the ice together, I feel like I'm traveling back in time - but not nostalgic....

In all seriousness good for them both - I was a fan of both players when they played to their potential. Unfortunately Lapierre was underused, and the team decided to take a chance on Desharnais. Getting rid of Max had a lot to do with giving DD that shot, and Max even stated as such.

Higgins - ooof - he had a rough time here. Apparently, it continued to NYC, and Miami.

I despise everything about the Canucks other than Higgins and Hamhuis.

Yeah, at this point that's pretty much my mantra too. I sort of wanted to see Anaheim win because I think Koivu deserves a cup but, generally, here's how my band-wagon jumping goes:

-Ottawa because I live there. Coincidentally, there are only two points in time where it's actually fun to live in this city rather then just enjoyable: Canada Day and when the Sens are winning.

-Teams from Canada except the Leafs because I enjoy seeing them lose.

-Detroit

-The team with the player I like most on it

-The team currently playing against the Flyers, Leafs, Washington, San Jose, or the Bruins because it's really satisfying watching these teams lose.

-Any of the teams listed above, except the Bruins, on account of the fact that they are playing the Bruins.

I'm not sure how it goes for everyone else but that's, generally, how I make a decision.

Mainly because they're Canadian and because they're so much hate towards the Canucks on these boards, which I can relate to as a Habs fan.

I'm definitely cheering for Higgins. He was my favorite player when he played in Montreal and I still have a soft spot for him. Glad he's been having some success these playoffs and hopefully he and the 'Nucks can go all the way.

I'm rooting against Boston before anything, but I wouldn't seeing Higgins and Lapierre win the cup with Vancouver. I wish they both still played for the Habs.

Not cheering for anyone. Once the Habs are out, I don't care who wins.

For those cheering because they're Canadian; once hell freezes over, I look forward to seeing all of you cheer on the Leafs as they go on a big playoff run.

To be honest, I absolutely despise the Canucks. I think I'll stop watching Hockey for good if the Bruins and Canucks get to the finals.

Canucks can beat the B's. I don't think the Sharks can.

Despise the Canucks. Will only cheer for them if it's Van vs Boston.

Sorry guys

I actually like Calgary and Chicago for out west. Always liked Calgary, started liking Chicago a couple years ago. Also don't mind St. Louis either.

Would love the Canadian team to win, but would hate to see Lapierre get a cup.
