After the Olympic gold medal win, watching regular hockey kind of sucked until playoff season. Now, while I am a Leafs fan, when it comes to playoffs I’m also a Habs fan (being a Maritimer) and a Canucks fan (having lived in Vancouver for 8 years) and really, I just want a Canadian team to make the playoffs and win a Stanley Cup. (The cup and I go waaay back, I kissed it at the Left Bank when Mimico boy Brendan Shanahan brought the cup to T.O. after the Stanley cup win). The excuse guys give me that most U.S. teams are mainly Canadian players doesn’t cut it when it’s been 17 years since we can proudly say a Canadian team won our own sport!
