Rattlesnake said:As a Habs fan, I feel Montreal will win the Cup. The reason I feel they're the team to beat is, on paper, they have one of the best, most consistent players in the NHL. The only thing that really might stop them from making a good run would be injuries.
The Leafs truly are my team, but I'm realistic!jroberts said:Strangely, though, most Leaf fans seem to be eternal optimists. Most of the Leaf fans I know pick the Leafs to win the Cup at the start of each and every season, year in and year out. And they stick by them. It's kind of endearing, in a way. They're like the Saskatchewan Roughrider fans of hockey. You can't help but feel sorry for them.
...well, maybe I wouldn't go that far.
