I get it. Many people don't grow up playing hockey so it's natural to gravitate to sports that you know better if your team sucks. Hockey has basically occupied that space forever and it's still here.

    This, 100% for me. Growing up as a Whelers fan I pretty much hated every team in the Adams division!

    This. Even when they suck the garden is still packed.

    I love watching hockey but I think it’s boring as shit to talk about most of the time. Pretty much why I don’t visit this thread often

    This. Major sports cities are going to have a fourth fiddle team. Philly and Boston have it. Doesn't mean their fans are fairweather.

    Boston loves the Bs. There is no doubt about that.

    Re: The NHL Thread: The year of Stanley Cupsets!

    Let me clarify so people don't accuse me of being a contrarian. The results have been shocking. If nobody is shocked that the favorites lost then Vegas did a bad job. Tampa going out like they did is shocking. That said there was a 70% chance they would not win the Stanley Cup. Right now Boston according to numberfire has a 20% of winning the cup which makes them the favorite. That means there is an 80% they won't win the Cup!

    Can't believe nobody talks about the Islanders. Gave up 100 goals against this year compared to last year.

    EDIT: A 1 seed has never been swept, no?

    Re: The NHL Thread: The year of Stanley Cupsets!

    Fair weather was probably the wrong phrase, but theyre fans of convenience for sure. I know literally countless people from the greater northeast area that considered themselves boston fans that wouldnt bring up the bruins until the playoffs. Like im talking 15+ people and only 1 of them actually followed hockey closely. Mostly a bunch of whey protein mass-holes so I guess it was kind of expected.

    But yeah id agree the 4th team in a city thing is a factor.
