Easily Buffalo, Toronto, Vancouver, St. Louis, Chicago, Boston and Philly since these are the fanbases that have been tormented the most over the years and whose team has either not won a Cup in franchise history or have rediculously long droughts.
Homer pick but Calgary definately was nuts during the '04 run.
But i'm going with Toronto, I lived in Toronto for 7 years, and during the '02 run when we beat the Isles, Sens it was nuts. I remember the sheer excitement before Game 6 against the Canes, it was madness, then our hearts got broken.. The arena wouldn't show the excitement of Leaf fans due to the Corporate bigshots, but the real Leaf fans would be nuts.
I'm a Canucks fan, and if you don't answer Toronto to this question, you don't know what you are talking about. I'm fairly certain they would declare a national holiday if the Leafs won the Cup. Harper would be out there flashing his Leafs underwear around, and some sort of cataclysmic event would occur, the nature of which we cannot even comprehend.
After that the rest of the Canadian teams are fairly even. Montreal is Montreal, Calgary has the Red Mile, Edmonton is just crazy, and Vancouver has the infamous '94 riots, which makes everyone suspect the city might burn down if we actually won the cup.
Vancouver and Toronto, without a doubt. Although cities like Montreal, Edmonton, and Calgary are just as passionate about hockey, none of them have had to go through the drought that Vancouver ad Toronto have. It's not even close.
If the Leafs win the cup and I die the next day, I'll be happy . Damn I'd die in the celebrations lol.
This thread is depressing, I want to see them win the cup sooo badly and thinking about the possibility of them winning it (whenever that might be) ahhhh .
I'm pretty sure any Canadian team would go cup crazy, I mean its our religion.
i feel the same way man. this thread gets me thinkin about '99 and how close my team came. I would love nothing better then for the sabres to win the cup but in my heart of hearts i just don't think it's gonna happen. 4 superbowls and 2 cups (only 1 of which i saw) has greatly tramitized me.
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.
oh my... were they actually honking their horns just for the heck of it !!!??? buddy if you drove around edmonton at any time of the day during the playoff run you would hear honking. if the oilers scored a goal in a game if you went out onto your balcony you would hear people cheering and honking. people shot fireworks right in the city after victories. Whyte Ave.
Case in point, Jays win '93 World Series, I'm partying down on Younge street, massive celebration.
Most heard cry: "****ing Joe ****ing Carter man, yaaaa!!"
2nd: "Leafs ****ing 10-0 man, all the way, yaaa!!!!"
