it's boston, there's no doubt there. toronto fans are not permanent residents... mostly just the students at our universities. i'm in agreement with the rest here.. avs and pens are pretty high up there.
I think Boston is by far the most popular team after the Habs.. I remember past series agains the Bruins, in every bar we went there was at least one 50yo pure laine québecois hardcore Bruins fan. Even a 45yo guy at my job who's a proud fench from Marseille.. dosen't follow hockey too much is a genuwine Bruins fan. He exlained me it was about the Bostom supremacy of his youth... dunno..
A ton of Bruins fans. It sickens me. Even my dad is a closet Bruins fan because of Bobby Orr. Every time the Bruins play at the Bell Centre the fans are at least 25% Bruins fans, and they're not tourists either.
I also see alot of French Canadian Ottawa fans. Don't know why, maybe they are from Hull or something. My friend's fiance is hardcore estie ********ie chain smoking beer drinking stereotype and is best buddies with Mike Ribeiro and Ribeiro's family, and he HATES the Habs and is a hardcore Ottawa fan. I don't know if he's from Hull though, it's possible.
It's hilarious though, because my friend is a hardcore Habs fan and most of their marital problems stem from the hate they have for their respective teams. My friend's car is pretty famous in Montreal, it's the blue Subaru WRX with the huge Canadiens logo on the back and her Fiance loves driving it, although he says it sickens him to have that giant logo on the back.
