    It's hard to say I'm truly with any singular team. I have a strange fascination with the Toronto Maple Leafs because of this vid that one of my fave Youtubers did on them. I think any team that had Harold Ballard inflicted on them deserves some form of redemption. Just feels so weird that one of the original 6 has had such a painful legacy since the first expansion.

    I'm also partial to Montreal but argh, the Habs look like they could be in for a painful rebuild after the injury hell the cup run last year inflicted. Price had my respect when he single handedly made the Flyers have to utterly grind out a series win. Also, you beat Pittsburgh in the play-ins that year - that was glorious. Serious question though - was Bergevin as whack as what this makes out?

    In terms of other Canadian teams:

    Edmonton - Strangely amused yet chilled they are wasting McDavid and Draisaitl with their utter incompetence. Hope that insanely expensive new stadium doesn't choke the city for decades.
    Calgary - Gritty but...will they still even have a team at this rate?
    Vancouver - Geez...Demko is about all that gives them any form of credibility. Then again, a team's fanbase rioting after losing a Game 7 in the cup finals doesn't have much
    Winnipeg - Thugs. Hellebuyck, I'll make an exception for, but they're dirty.
    Ottawa - Oh, where to start?! HA! The start itself?! The knucklepuck and Duchene trade?! Mocking stillborns? To top it all off, that utter slime Melynk?!

    I guess I'd like to see Seattle do well. Given how much the Mariners failures and the Sonics departure has hurt that city. I have some time for St. Louis - Their legacy of failure to 2019 was pure pain. But that cup run - being last in the league halfway, firing their coach and starting a rookie goalie - was magic. Game 7 will be a permanent scar on Boston.

    Teams I despise:

    Vegas - Getting a disgusting overcompensation from other teams in the expansion draft, their utterly crass behaviour towards anyone that isn't on their team. I relish in their mind-boggling meltdowns when they get to the true business end.
    Boston - You know why, I know why. The reasons pile up. Let's just leave it at their endless arrogance as a team, a fanbase and their media. Also applies to the Patriots, the Red Sox, etc.

    San Jose - Not due to bad behaviour. But...they were a clown show in their early days before becoming the premier squanderer of top talent and signing extensions in utter madness.

    Chicago - Until what was revealed in 2021, they wouldn't have been here. But this was just vile.

    Other thoughts:

    Never forget 1994 and all the misery either side of it. Btw, how exactly is 'tabarnak' used as I believe the term is specific to French Canadians? Kanon told me it is not used in France.
    Boudreau truly was the master of the barbeque pit
    Keenan really was the definition of a volatile coach

    Yeah, the Maple Leafs are often better at scoring when they get fewer shots, lol

    I'm curious, LS, who is your favorite NHL team? Are you a Leafs fan? It sounds like you dislike Vegas and Boston a lot. I'm a Habs fan, so anybody who dislikes the Bruins is cool with me!

    Fyi looks like time difference has Adelaide 15.5 hours ahead of Montreal.

    Typical the Maple Leafs find a way to beat the Golden Knights despite having way less shots then lose to the Coyotes despite having way more shots.

    Toronto sure loves to blow 4-1 leads, huh? My fave take on it from a certain Maple Leafs fan. The title is perfect.

    I took far more pleasure out of the Habs eliminating the Golden Knights. Seeing Vegas and Boston eliminated is always a pleasure. I did enjoy the Habs making it to the finals last year, but Tampa Bay were always going to win that series and Montreal has paid quite a price for it with injuries and Bergevin finally wearing his overly long welcome out. I will concede it is seeing a certain vid about the half-century long failures of the Maple Leafs as well as seeing the St. Louis Blues end their legacy of failure in that crazy finals against Boston that got me into keeping an eye on the NHL.

    Speaking of Tampa Bay, what is the reaction in Montreal to the Tampa Bay Rays in the MLB saying they want to play some games in Montreal, given how poorly the MLB treated the Expos - particularly with the 'Montreal screwjob' lockout in 1994 costing the Expos their best shot at a World Series and forever killing support in Montreal for an MLB team.

    Fyi, Arcane does not require knowledge about League of Legends beforehand. In many ways, you're better off not knowing about the game beforehand. Hope you enjoy it. Just...don't play the game. I sincerely mean it along with many, many other Arcane viewers.

    Oh, and I hope you have a Happy and healthy 2022 as well.

    Good joke about the Maple Leafs, ha ha! It was definitely great to watch my Habs defeat them last Spring in the first round.

    Thanks a lot, LS! It's good to hear from you again. I recently started watching Arcane. The first episode has some great animation, and has an interesting world setting. The class conflict in Arcane's first episode is portrayed in an effective way.

    After I've watched more Arcane, I'll share my take on it with you here on AS.

    While I haven't seen that Revue movie or its original series, your recent comments intrigued me. I miss your take on things. You like to think. Even if we watch fairly different content overall, I always respected your perspective.

    So I have to ask - have you seen either Odd Taxi or Arcane?

    Btw, that Discord issue I had for years - it was actually from the sound card I used at the time.

    Hey R3, hope you're doing well and hope 2022 is a good one for you.

    Do you think the Maple Leafs will finally win a playoff series this time around?
