Im a Sabres fan, but I am rooting for Montreal in the playoffs this season. (And San Jose because I put money on them in Vegas).
I really like the team a lot. Very entertaining. Carey Price is phenomenal, the team looks very hungry and willing to pay the price. the energy in the Bell Centre is wonderful. Id love to go to a game there someday.
The fans of the Canadiens (although maybe not the older ones) deserve a long playoff run/cup over any other fan base. The same way I feel Sabres fans deserved to watch the 'success' of the previous 2 seasons. But I do understand that Habs fans are a breed different than any in the NHL.
I usually root for the more 'traditional' and Canadian teams when the Sabres are eliminated, with the exception of Toronto, Ottawa, Boston, Detroit, Philly, and the Rangers. Somehow the Canadiens have found their way off that list over time. Even after all the Sabres' eliminations at the hands of the Habs of the 80's and 90's.
