The Penguins are NOT a hot shot team like the Chicago Blackhawks nor are they polished like the Canadians or the Canucks, they are a bunch hard working blue-collared types who'd rather win the cup than go for BIG $$$$.
I want the Penguins to win the Cup which would fulfill two of my hockey wishes this season; the first was the Philthadelphia Flyers not making the playoffs. That alone is precious to me.

My sister and dad are Habs fan, and I grew up watching far more Detroit games than Leafs games, due to proximity, but I am a leafs fan through and through.

We are big hockey fans in our house (uh look at my profile picture). But no team in the playoffs this year... "we" came in 2nd to last... Colorado Avalanche. We are season ticket holders so it sort of sucks when the team is bad. But we won the first round draft pick lottery, AND they finally fired the coach. So, hopefully next season will yield better results.
But, I used to live in Chicago, I was there when they won the Cup a few years ago, and I have lots of Blackhawks fan friends, so I'm rooting for them now.... and at least I can say that the Avalanche killed their streak :)
