I'm an STH here because it's the only pro hockey in the area. I also go to SJSU and Stanford games, on occasion. When the SF Spiders were in the area, I was also an STH there. I love hockey, if not the local team.
Kiprusoff is my favorite player in the NHL. I got to know him a bit here in SJ, and he's just the nicest guy around. While Cheechoo is #2 on my list (and gaining), #2 still lags behind #1.
Honestly, I could care less about anybody else on the Flames, and I detest Sutter. Horrid person, both on and off the ice. That said, I want Kipper to raise the Cup, and while I wouldn't be able to go to the Finals as a result, it means I also don't have to pay for it.
