I was just having this discussion with my uncle (a caps fan) about who I am rooting for to come out of the Eastern Conference this year. I had to spend some time thinking about this, so I'm curious to hear what my fellow Rangers fans have to say about this. My reasoning below (in ascending order of preference):
Flyers- Can't root for them out of principle
Pens- Can't because of Cindy
Bruins- Can't because of my anti-Boston sentiment (Yankees/Jets fan)
Canadiens- Dislike because of Subban/Gomez, but the Cammaleri (Jew) factor bumps them above the Bruins.
Lightining- It comes down to them vs. the caps. While I love St. Louis and everyone else, they won one relatively recently
Leaving me with: The Caps
