Hello friends! Are you confused what to do now that your team has been eliminated? Still want to watch hockey but don't want to cheer for another team because that would be blasphemy? Tired of just cheering for teams you hate to loose?
I have the answer you are looking for, and some suggestions on how to go about fulfilling your new playoff commitment!
The solution is simple and easy to follow, and the best part is that it leaves you guilt free about cheering for someone other than your beloved.
Cheer for players, not teams!
Just pick a player, or players that you think deserve, or would like to see to win the Stanley Cup!
Here are some suggestions and reasons why these players are worth cheering for.
Alexander Ovechkin - The most dynamic scorer in today's NHL, endlessly entertaining and he truly loves to score, win and just play hockey. He has all the wacky personality traits and goofy facial hairs to soften even the hardest opposing fans heart.
Martin Brodeur - He needs as many cups as he can get to be cemented as the best goalie ever. Crazy man Roy needs to be knocked down a peg.
Geno Malkin - Carried the Pens to the playoffs when Crosby was out. Reminds me of an early Forsberg, little flash, all magic.
Jarome Iginla - He is the closest thing to Wendel Clark the NHL has, and that is more than enough.
Dion Phaneuff- Just to cause Pierre Mcguire's head would explode with joy.
Gary Roberts - For all the good he did the Leafs in the past, plus if he wins a cup somewhere else maybe he'll want to come home.
Christobal Heut - It would piss of Habs fans. Call it Roy to Colorado part 2.
Jason Spezza - Just kidding!
Remember, only you can prevent cross-cheering. Pick a player, for whatever reason, and enjoy the playoffs!
