All the votes for the Rags disgust me. I'll root for the Devils and the Panthers in the East, the rest can go screw.
Out west, I'll root for the 'Yotes and Sharks if they make it, Red Wings, and Blackhawks. Can't root for the Canucks after many of their antics last postseason. I like LA, but I can't root for them with Richards and Carter on their team--though I respect their abilities. I like Nashville, but I don't want our draft pick to be adversely affected. The Blues are a payroll underdog, but I find it difficult to stay awake for their games, and their HF fans are pretty hostile toward the Sabres.
Pens all the way. Crosby deserves another one after the **** he's been through.
If this was another player you were talking about I MIGHT* be able to get behind your thought process but Crosby doesn't deserve anything**. He gets everything handed to home on a silver platter in this league.
* I more times then not have a hard time getting behind a player "deserving" a cup. With that mentality you would have to say all players do just cause they play in the league IMHO
** I will agree that he's been through a lot and yeah he deserves to stay injury/concussion free for a long time but that's about it. That's just my two cents though.
Understanding some people is like trying to pick up a dog turd by the clean end. It just isn't possible.
