Are there any habs fans cheering for Canucks because of Higgins and Lappierre?
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'm kind of sort of rooting for the 'nucks, but it's mostly ABB anyone but boston.
however happy to see higgy and yappy do well. didn't like goat giving him away for uncle fester and a 5th which became mara..
hopefully we can resign higgins
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.
