Hell yeah, Calgary just erupted into non-stop party mode last time. I'd love to see it again.

Best part: No riots. Only morons riot in celebration of their team winning.

Everytime a question asking wich city ______? The answer is always Montreal. It should be something similar to IMHO (In My Humble Opinion). I suggest OCMR (Of Course Montreal Rules) as a new important term on these boards.

So it would go:

OCMR, but the Oilers fan would go nuts like during last year's finals.

or

In the Eastern Conference, OCMR, but Buffalo fans are definitely passionate and eager for a championship.

The important thing to keep in mind is that Montreal rules.

Well people were asked to name which (ie: choose ONE) city. Is it such a surprise that the two largest and most storied hockey hotbeds in the country (world) are being (rightfully) named?

I personally don't think I'm being a homer at all when I choose Toronto. All the ingredients are right.

But then again, that must be my east coast inferiority complex right?

Raleigh went insane last year after the cup win, people were even honking their car horns JUST FOR THE HECK OF IT!! I thought the world was going to end but luckily I had built a bunker beforehand and was able to hide out during the worst of it.

No, people in the east have a superiority complex.

I'm not sure such a complex exists. Wouldn't it involve spending all our time conciously not obsessing about people on the other side of the country for no good reason?

Our superiority really isn't that complex, but we'd be happy to explain it to you if you're having trouble.


Seriously: Toronto by a long shot. Especially after the lockout, and missing the playoffs last year, I think even winning a round for Toronto would be a bigger celebration than 90% of the other teams winning a cup.

calgary, edmonton, toronto, montreal, and buffalo would all likely break into rioting. buffalo had damn near reached a fever pitch just getting to the conference final, if we would have won game 7, i'm 90% sure the city would have looked at least slightly different the next morning, and that's not even the cup final. the canadian teams all have the pride thing, toronto hasn't won longer than the sabres have existed, and they are definitely hockey crazy... but buffalo also has the added edge of having never won anything, to be the champions of anything would drive this city over the edge.

Definitely Buffalo. The people of rioting age in that city (say 15-39) have lived through 4 Super Bowl losses, a Stanley Cup robbery, and last year's insane injury debacle in the Eastern Conference Finals. That's a lot of pent up frustration to be taken out on windows, cars, the opposing team's hotel, etc.. Not to mention there aren't any jobs, so nobody has to go to work the next day.

I think you don't get it... Hockey is really important in Montreal, much more than it is everywhere else. Just turn the TV in at night and you'll understand what I mean. Just look at how many journalist there's in the locker room after the game, it's 10 times more than everywhere else. There's more hockey fans in Montreal than there is in any other city. Live with it, that's how things are.

If that's the case, how do you explain this:

Bibby, an Edmonton native, has been monitoring Canadian social trends since the mid-1970s. He has written 10 books with his most recent, titled The Boomer Factor: What Canada's Most Famous Generation is Leaving Behind, due to be released later this summer.

The decline in interest in the NHL has been most pronounced in Quebec and western Canada, with Bibby suggesting that's a reflection of the departure of both the Quebec Nordiques and Winnipeg Jets. However, interest remains very high in Calgary and Edmonton (around 40 per cent) as well as Vancouver, Toronto, and Ottawa (over 30 per cent each).

The survey provided a surprising revelation that the NHL's fan base in Montreal is the lowest of the six Canadian-based NHL cities at around 20 per cent.

They riotted in Vancouver when they lost in the finals. Imagine what it would be like if they won! We're seriously deprived as canucks fans. In fact, I dont think we'd believe it if it happened....

But in all seriousness, I dont see how anyone could say one Canadian city would reach 'better' than another. Any would be absolutely insane.

my vote goes to Buffalo, I was there during the playoffs last season for some time and the whole city was in a playoff atmosphere, you could tell it would erupt if they won a cup.
I completely agree. I'm not a Sabres fan at all, but we were in Buffalo for a wedding last year during the playoffs and that place was NUTS. You could walk down the street in the neighborhood that we were staying in and hear the game on the radio or tv coming from almost every house. It was really pretty cool.
