You might or might not care...

but the Penguins are on a 4 game winning streak! They are my second favorite team behind the Kings and i thought i'd share my happiness with you all. I think they have a nice young team and will get really good soon. That is if they don't get run out of town first. I'm glad they are playing well, cause they work and deserve it for their efforts. Hope they can get Ovechkin and turn him into gold.

I for one am ecstatic about their streak, mainly, of course because they beat the Leafs last night. And being a Kings fan living in Ontario, I get into a lot of arguments with my friends about our respective teams. They've given me some great ammo for upcoming altercations.

Its also nice to see Jon Sim playing well with his new team.

I was led to believe that if you're not a Leaf's fan then you're not Canadien.

Wow, didn't notice your reply until now.

In reponse to your post, it is possible to be Canadian and not support the Leafs. However, its amazing how many Toronto fans take offense at the very notion of a Canadian who does not support the Buds. Whenever I tell an Ontarian that I am a Kings fan, their face contorts in a combination of confusion, fear and anger, and, in an automatic knee-jerk reaction, they say: "They suck," though many of them have never even seen LA play, nor do they have any idea of their position in the standings. I then have to explain to them that the Kings are an amazing team, with loads of heart, and, when healthy, talent to back that heart up. But they never listen. Most of the time, its like talking to a brick wall; they either refuse to listen to my arguments or go on some rant about the stanley cup and follow that up with another unfounded derogatory statement. I mean, it actually enrages them that I support the Kings! However, it is my responsibility as a Kings fan to continue fighting the good fight for my team against overwhelming ignorance and resentment. I'm out here behind enemy lines people; but fear not, fore my resolve is strong and my arsenal of stats, jokes, and witty remarks is vast.

You guys watch Conan O' Brien when he was in Canada to do his shows that one week? Well the whole week turned out to be a Leaf lovefest. That's why i thought most people in Canada were Leaf fans. Oh well... Go Kings!

and just for this thread... GO PENS!!!
