We are not all of Canada’s team but we don’t care.

     I’m Canadian and have to wonder why we even care if other people in Canada are cheering for us. If the Nucks were out and Montreal or Toronto were in I wouldn’t be cheering for them because they’re located in Canada….If my team is out, the Season is over, and I watch the game as a fan of the NHL.  I don’t cheer for other teams. Those that do should screw their heads on tighter…

     Maybe I don’t belong in the “comments” section of this post because I am from the U.S., and on top of that I’m from Florida, but the whole issue of nationalism has always seemed misplaced when it comes to the NHL. It is awesome in the Olympics, but in the NHL every single team has players from multiple countries. I cheer for the Lightning and am dying for them to win another Cup…but if the SCF turns out to be Boston vs. Vancouver it would never occur to me to cheer for the Bruins simply because their rink is in the U.S., when their roster has players from seven different nations.

    I guess I agree with most of this, but 1) San Jose is in no way located in “Southern” California. That’s like saying Toronto is the East coast of Canada. Since we always make fun of Americans for saying ignorant stuff about our country, let’s not do the same and invite the same kind of ridicule. 2) I am a lifelong Canucks fan living in BC, but I watched last night’s game at a predominantly French bar in Montreal and everyone was cheering incredibly enthusiastically for the Canucks. Just to offer a real-life perspective. I think places like Calgary where the fans tend to hate the ‘nucks (yup, out of spite, suckers) there is more of attitude about not cheering for the ‘nucks. (I also walked around an airport in cow-town yesterday and was given some hateful looks by Albertans, and loved every second of it.) And 3) This is such a dumb moot argument. I am happy to be able to cheer on the Canucks and I don’t give a shit if “Canada” is with me. More victory for us!

    I’m usually a Flames fan, and right now cheering for the Canucks. I hope they bring the cup home where it belongs.  I don’t care how many European or US players are on the team (less then the Flames), the last time I took a look at the map, Boston was not situated anywhere on the map of Canada.  It’s our game, now bring it home boys!!! Go CANUCKS Go!!
