Anybody else cheering for Philly in the playoffs?


Recommended Posts

The Habs are pretty much the last team I'd like to see win, not so much because of the team itself, but because of their obnoxious fans.

Personally, I'm pulling for the Blues. They've been waiting for a Cup even longer than we have.

I have a soft spot for the Habs. Really enjoyed the Bowman/Pollock era.

But i cannot stand Habs fans. So many of them where im from in Regina. Always were snotty to me about my fandom for the Canucks. Plus the fact that many cheered the Bruins on to defeat the Canucks. Which makes them even that much more idiotic, considering the Habs-Bruins rivalry.

But im with you on seeing the Blues succeed. They are playing solid Hockey, the right kind of Hockey with that magic roster mix.

Not really into Philly. Probably moreso because of how they are run (or previously managed by Clarke the blowhard).

Go flyers love the skillset Giroux brings to the table day in and day out

Without Giroux this team is dead

Although not dead they still got young guns like Brayden Schenn(who the Canucks should trade for in offseason) and Couturier

The Flyers are one of the hottest teams

From starting 1-7-1 early in the season to being almost #1 in the Division

It's amazing what Craig Berube has transformed this team into

Just hope the Canucks hire a coach that has the same winning mentality as this guy

This guy has a bright future as head coach for the Flyers and in the NHL

Although they might be facing the Rangers

I want the Flyers to sweep this Rangers team just to prove that we fired the right man last season

Getting Torts was not such a bad idea

But I don't think he fits the Canucks future plans

The goal is to always win the Cup

We use to be winning consecutive division titles and president trophies

Go Flyers, Jackets and Habs
