I read a lot of jokes about the Leafs here like, when someone asks, "How does a player become overrated?" Then someone would answer, "When he plays for the Leafs." So that makes me think no one outside of Toronto likes the Maple Leafs. But then I always hear that everyone outside of BC hates the Canucks.
Toronto I have to hate because it's annoying to hear about them all the time. But they've been so unsuccessful that it hasn't been as much fun lately.
Have to pick Vancouver. I honestly had a good time cheering against them in their run in 2011. Even sports reporters in Edmonton started to hate them. I watched a lot of those playoffs and it's the first time i've actually cheered, got out of my seat, etc. Cheering for a team that wasn't my own.
May have been because I forgot what playoff hockey is like with my own team.
