Original Six FTW!

I have a confession to make, one that makes me unpopular in certain circles in my hometown - I am a Montreal Canadiens fan. I'd go so far as to call myself a Superfan given that I have traveled to Montreal for a game a number of times. I am also Canadian and the Vancouver Canucks have been billed as "Canada's Team" since the first round of the playoffs. One might think that I am disappointed by last night's Stanley Cup final.

Incorrect.

I am what is known as a hockey purist: I want the Habs to win. If the Habs are out, I want any other Original Six team to win. If there are no Original Six teams standing, I want any other Canadian team to win. If none of those are available, I might as well watch paint dry because I just don't give a shit. Last night the Boston Bruins (Original Six) handed the Vancouver Canucks (Canadian team) their asses. All is now right with the world.
