The Sens are going serve up some roast duck. Thats all I know. I would have a slight heart for cheering for the Ducks because I know Chris Kunitz, but he's injured and out... so Puck the Ducks... GO SENS!

i'm not going to root for anyone... because Anaheim has Pronger and Ottawa has Comrie. and i actually don't really care about the Cup staying in Canada unless it goes to the Oilers haha.. don't get me wrong i'd love to have the Cup back in Canada but that's not enough reason for me to cheer on the Sens, although i would prefer an actual city that respects and loves hockey to have the Cup.

Not to mention those "stars" of the NFC, the fabulous Detroit Lions.

I think they will do great. I predict 5 wins this year.

Overall, I couldn't care less. I never gave much thought to that "consolation prize versus revenge" angle. Between the Quacks and Sens, I'd cheer for Ottawa. A "Cup-fer-Canada" story sounds nice and I'd just assume Pronger only see the Cup via a Hall of Fame ticket.

I'm rooting for the Sens because I'd much rather see Canada win

Plus, it was my grandma's favorite team behind the wings. Sort of like an homage thing.

Why would I want to root for another team.

I hope the NHL/VERSES aren't counting on this "barn burner" of a series boosting ratings. If I do catch any of the games(not going to loose any sleep because of Cali time) it would be to look for "THE MIGHTY GEESE" to duplicate there last cup final performance and choke again.

I guess there will be some high lights though.........watching the ice girls lubing the net so Giggles doesn't get his overstuffed ass stuck in the net between periods, and listening to shlonger cry about his treatment from the Canadian media.

Alright, I like the ducks because they fight but I hate a couple players.

I like the Sens because it snows there, but I hate a couple of their players too.

Either way hopefully more enforcers will b around next year
I make 1 or 2 posts a week tops. Sometimes they're gold, sometimes they're crap, but the end weight is the same.

if the ducks had deserved to win, then I'd be rooting for them.

the simple fact that luck was on their side doesn't mean they should be rewarded with my support.

go sens!

Ottawa, but I don't think I can bear to watch anyway.

In this particular situation, I am torn. I hate Ottawa with more passion than any other NHL team. I don't hate the Ducks, but I do hate Pronger, and the Nieds twins. As far as Ottawa is concerned, I hate Alfredsson, Heatly, Emry, Comrie, McCammond, Fisher, Redden, ect... I do really like Corvo, and Spezza. With the Ducks, I actually like just about everyone but the aforementioned players, oh, and Marchment. I'm a huge Selanne fan, and Getz is just gunna be ridiculous in the next few years. I'm pulling for the Ducks. If for no other reason than it'll cost someone that much more to sign Giggy next year.

I personally root for only one team, Red Wings. When they are no longer an option I root for no-one! I will watch the final but I won't really care who wins it!

I'd love to see the Sens shut up their critics, so I got my Sens jersey on and I have ticks to game 4 here in Ottawa and I might go to the Sens Red Mile thing on Elgin st. for the big party.

I am rooting for the Sens to come out and just whip the piss out of Anaheim. I hate the Ducks, I hate Pronger, I just plain hate them.
