The Habs and always the Habs. I hate Pit but it has nothing to do with the trade, it has to do with all the talent paired with a dirtbag like Matt Cooke who continue to run around putting career threatening plays at will but at the end of the day our main nemesis is still the Habs, Pit is just the trendy team to hate (and rightfully so) but they're the Miami Heat and the Habs are the Lakers. The hate runs deeper for the Habs.

Man, you may root for the wrong team, but I dig your writing. You churn out some great lines and mean similes!

10 years from now, Pittsburgh will return to hockey irrelevancy.

The Habs will survive the apocalypse.
This comment is frikkin hilarious. If you have to hate, at least you do it with panache.

Ah, then you appreciate the underhanded compliment?

I am oozing panache today. I should probably get that looked at by a licensed medical professional.

You should vote for Pittsburgh. There's no way you would beat the Habs in a BO7

Habs. Let someone else light up fleury.

Almost wrote a long and angry paragraph about the hypocrisy of the Habs and their fans. Well, HF fans anyways. But alas, no. I'm half tempted to make my own "embelishment city" style video dealing with le scabs. Then again, I wouldnt want to shock any of the saintly habs fanbase. Maybe once the semester ends.

Habs>Pens on the hate-o-meter.

As a Habs fan, I am a little insulted that Pittsburgh is even being considered here. I know the Iginla wound is still fresh, but god damn it guys we have history on our side. Montreal-Boston is the epitome of hockey. You can't tell me one botched trade usurps all of that?

Respectfully, your hate should still, and always be directed at Montreal, unless you build up an equally eventful rivalry with the Pens. By the time the playoffs roll around I think the majority of you will want to beat Montreal.

Cheers.

You have a good point Dr. It would be interesting to see this poll done in a week or so from now after the "emotion" of the situation is lessoned.

In my book, after this kick in the OO I NEVER want to see Iginla hoist Lord Stanleys Cup. He not only chose them BUT he wasted precious time for the B's. Oh, and Chia went along with if for TWELVE FREAKING HOURS?!?!! WTH?
I hope that crew never sees a cup again in my lifetime at least.

Not even close -- the Habs. I ****ing hate the Habs more than anything else in the world of sport. Pit would be great to eliminate because they are so good and would be favored, but the sheer history of hate between Boston and Montreal will never be trumped by some temporary hate.

can't even vote on this, because I hope the Penguins get knocked out by someone else in the first round

same with the habs

but if the habs play the pens, this year, I will actually be hoping for the habs (which might be a first for me lifetime to ever hope for the habs)

I voted Pens even though I grew up immersed in the Bruins/Hab rivalry. As much disdain I do have for the Habs (and Quebec) I still respect the Original 6. Of course I look forward to, and hope, both get knocked out, but this year I want to see the NHL's smug ***** get slapped hard. Matt Cooke, Iginla, Cindi....

My vote, at least this year, is the Penguins. Short of actually winning another cup, no victory could be sweeter than that. And I want them at full strength too. I want Crosby out there, Malkin, Letang, Neal, Orpik, Kunitz, Dupius, Fleury, Morrow, Iginla...all of them

Also, at this point, I'm sick of the Habs. Yes, I know it's a great rivalry. I know it's great when we beat them, but it's at a point where, the negative of losing to them is so much more significant than the positive of losing to them.

Know what I mean?

If we play them 10 times and win 8 of them. The joy of those 8 wins is trumped by the aggravation and misery of those two losses. Keep them away. Give me Pittsburgh. I'm usually pretty good about it when we eliminate someone. I never rub it in or dance on their graves, but THIS TIME? It will be like a broadway musical taking place in a cemetery. I'll be like Gregory Hines up in here
God ****** let's take 'em both

Don't you think that by next week not getting Iginla will feel more painful because of its implications for the playoffs? After all, the loss to the Habs was not in a one-game elimination round. Fans of other East teams are already probably throwing in the towel. Who'll stop the Penguins now?

The Habs. Beating them is so deeply, viscerally satisfying.

don't get me wrong, I hate the habs with a passion, I just think that this year the league will try to do everything in their hopes and dreams to get the Penguins to win the cup, so they need to be stopped

Phil Connors

does anyone feel like Neely broke something behind the scenes after getting embarrassed like this. I say sea bass suits up and just sits on the bench instead of pando for the 19th game

Rather directly knock out Montreal but would lather myself in the tears of Pittsburgh fans if they were to lose.

I believe Neely at 50 years old would be more effective than Pandolfo on the ice
