Which is your favourite of the original 6 Hockey Teams
Only Gee Wally & BTS were around for the original six.
On another note, who is Mrs Spud?
The Hawks. Denis Savard
The Wings & Gordie Howe
Now and forever, the Detroit Red Wings
I don't mind Chicago, Boston, NY or the Maple Leafs.
I hate alot of their fans though.
(Except Chicago which has no fans.)
Hey, they were in the NHL before Detroit, Chicago, and New York...
The Original 6 is a farce.
My second favorite original 6 team is the Toronto Maple Leafs. My first favorite original 6 team is a tie, between the 5 other ones.
Unlike your example of the Pittsburgh Pirates, these six franchises were not contracted or relocated. In 1967, there were six expansion teams. The Hawks, Wings, Bruins, Habs, Leafs, and Rangers were then referred to as the Original Six, meaning the Original six team from the pre-expansion era.
If I were to stretch this out, the Habs would end up on page 8 of this topic.
Leafs (their fans are riding the thin line between funny and stupid, but they actually knows hockey pretty well)
Wings (if they wouldn't call themselves from Hockeytown, it would be easy 2nd place, though)
The squad of referees.
1. Montreal Canadiens
2. Chicago Blackhawks
3. New York Rangers
4. Detroit Red Wings
5. Boston Bruins
6. Toronto Maple Leafs
2. New York
5) New York
The original 5
Boston is off the chart Doesn't exist for me.
I started out as a Habs fan in the phenomenal rivalry against the frustratingly-good Bruins of the seventies, then converted to my local team the Canucks before their 1982 run for the Cup and then the Bruins stole Neely from us, so... except for Bourque, that franchise doesn't exist for me!
toronto - obviously
detroit - we don't play them enough for me to hate them, plus i respect their team.
chicago - i feel bad for them, so i can't hate them, lol
boston - our rivalry isn't that heated these days, so i can stand them.
rangers - hate what sather did with this team the past few years
habs - obviously
