Iggy or the habs

Question for all you Canadian flames fans. Playoffs coming quick, so as flames fans would you rather see iggy win his cup this season or Montreal win the cup for Canada?

Would rather see almost any other playoff potential team win it more than the Habs. It doesn't matter anyway as outside of the Flames I want Iggy to win the cup more than any other player or team.

Iggy first, and it's not even close.

Habs maybe if Boston is out of it.

Calgary beat Montreal for their only Cup, on the Canadiens' home ice in the Forum. Would do it again and again and again and not care who was "Canada's Team."

Also, I believe the actual (as in real, not fake, actual, authentic) Team Canada already won their tournament and brought the nation its pride in ice hockey ability.

Futhermore, the Canadiens have 13 players of non-Canadian origin which is exactly half of their roster. So exactly who are Montreal Canadiens winning the Stanley Cup for (if they do at all, and let's face it it's unlikely to be this post-season) again??

I just had a big discussion with another flames fan about this and he would choose the habs as the cup for canada is more important. IMO he's not a true iggy fan then.

I've never put much stock in having a "Canadian" team win the cup. All teams in the NHL are more or less Canadian due to majority player nationality. I would say the relationship between Canadian NHL teams is often more of a rivalry than solidarity. I cheered hard against the Canucks in 2011 because they are a rival (and it didn't hurt that there were more Canadian players on the Bruins).

Personally, though, I don't mind the Eastern Canadian teams. I would like to see Montreal or even Toronto win a Cup. But nowhere near as much as I'd love to see Iginla raise that Cup (you know, the one he rightfully won in 2004 ).

I want the Canadian Stanley Cup drought to end. But it has to be the Flames that do it. Anybody but Montreal. If Iggy wins, that's great. I'm rooting for the Kings. (Sutter, Regehr, Jones)

That's spoken like a true fan. ( f the habs though). I'm a die a hard bruins fan who lives in Calgary, and I was shocked when that guy told me he would take habs over iggy.

Were you perhaps walking across a bridge at the time? Because he may well have been trolling.

Why cheer for Montreal? Because they are from Canada? We just won olympic gold. Canada is the best and everyone already knows it. Now it's Iggy's turn.

As they will be the only Canadian team on the playoffs. Drives me nuts when people in canada jump on any Canadians team band wagon in the pkayoffs just because they are from canada.

There are Canadians everywhere.

When the Flames are usually eliminated I cheer for players more so than the team. In the West it's the Avs and the Sharks (ROR, Duchene, Commander Sheppard). In the East it's the Bruins (Iggy) and Detroit (they're all good). I rooted on the Habs when they forced Game 7 a few years back, and that was only because I'm a fan of Price (and really dislike Marchand).

Boston, AINEC.

I don't have anything against the Habs per se, but I have no reason to cheer for them either. I would never cheer for a team just because they are the last or only Canadian team in the playoffs. I think anyone who does that doesn't really get competitive sports in general. If Vancouver or Edmonton ( ) were in the playoffs, why would I cheer for them when they're our rivals?

My thoughts exactly. I don't get why people do. The country doesn't benefit from it? So why does it matter.

I was never a fan of the Habs, and I'm not into the whole Canada bandwagon thing.

Flyers, Boston and Kings for me, in that order. The only other Canadian team I kind of like is the Jets. I hate the Nucks and Oilers. I like JVR on the Leafs, but can't stand Carlyle. I feel totally indifferent about the Sens and Habs, although I think I would get on the Sens wagon if they ever went deep in the post season again.

Iggy winning the Cup for me would be something I would never forget and it would probably make me shed some tears. Seeing the Habs win wouldn't do much if anything for me.
