Harper is a bandwagon jumper. He was just cheering for the sens a few weeks ago.

Ok, that is just mean....

I would have to go with Toronto although I would love it if a small market team such as Buffalo or Ottawa won.

Whyte Ave.
That's not even the worst of it, HUNDREDS of crazed hockey fans turned Glenwood avenue into a nonstop 2.5 hour-long party. It was insane. I can't even believe I made it out alive to tell you all this story.

Certainly a Canadian city for obvious reasons. Just for fun I will rank them in order based on my uninformed perception:

1. Toronto
2. Montreal
3. Calgary
4. Edmonton
5. Vancouver
6. Ottawa

Vancouver was pretty much exploding after they won two games against Detroit in 2002 in the first round. I can't conceive of what would happen if they won the cup. I don't think I'd survive.

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.

Live with it, that's how things are.
I think you're the one who doesn't get it.

I'm serious! Montreal does rule! Everytime someone asks a question about wich city is this or that, the answer is and forever will be Montreal. Loudest fans? Montreal. Most hockey-centered town? Montreal. City where players receive the most praises? Montreal. Place where players get bashed the most? Montreal. I'm totally serious. This town is in a class by itself!

Dont need another Tampa Bay or Carolina.
We love you, too. You make me glad Norwood missed.

The answer to this question is obviously Pittsburgh; anyone who says anything different doesn't know hockey.

The best scenario....

Nashville sweeps Toronto in 4 games.

All of Canada burns.

If I had to suffer Toronto making the finals, I would be quite happy to see that result.

That earthquake theyre predicting, its entirely based on that there is a chance theyll win in the next hundred years, then its duck and cover.

really!

Where i live whenever the leafs win a playoff series there is a giant motorcade like a wedding but everyone has leafs jerseys and fake stanley cups they drive arounnd the small part of st. john's where i live. Some cars have those big spotights and there is usually aroun35-45 cars it is nutz.There is a leafs mobile it is an old ford tempo painted blue and white with flashing lights on the top and hockeysticks with TML flags on them.It was on the news and everything.
this is just for winnin a playoff series.

And we do the same thing when montreal gets knocked out and sometimes the habs fans are waitin by there houses with the garden hose to sparay us

Good Times!
