usually I don't feel much of anything, I was happy for Rod Brindamore when he won. But for the most part, I am ambivalent.
I hated seeing Justin Williams and Patrick Sharp be very good to great elsewhere.
Those guys would have been great to have around.
So those two winning cups pissed me off only because, everyone that watched the Flyers knew they would be players yet Hitch stapled their asses to the bench and then they were dealt for nothing and no o
Just my opinion, but i guess i saw the ultimate...Ray Bourque.
Watched him give everything he had for 20 years as a bruin, then get moved to the avs, and while they did not win the cup that season, adding Rob Blake the next did the trick...
Can't help but have all the feels for Ray...lifting that cup was worth a 20 year wait.
Flyer fans saw Luke Schenn, Maroon and Coburn win a cup two nights ago.
As a Wings fan, i saw a team built by Yzerman win a cup.
Rangers fans saw Shatty and McDonough, the Jets saw Bogo, the Sharks watched Goodrow.
My question is this,, when a player or players who previously performed for your club win a cup, do you feel good for them or does it make you sick to your stomach watching them lift the cup? Flyer fans specifically, how did you feel watching Hedman
More indifferent because one well i didn't watch the end or the Cup being handed out in fact I haven't watched that part in a long long time.
However I'm not bitter for the former players.
I know when they played for my Flyers they did the best they could. It's all I can ask for.
So I guess I'm happy for them.
But I would have preferred to se Giroux hoist the Cup instead for Philly.
Depends of the team, I'd say.
I hated the Bellows-Courtnall trade because Bellows was somehow the franchise player back then and one of my favorite player. When he lifted the cup I was happy for him, but as a Habs hater, yikes !
For me, it would depend on lots of things.
If he was a favorite of mine that got traded, I would generally be happy for him...even if I didn't care for the team he was on.
I might also feel neither happy nor upset about it if the player was the type I could either take or leave.
Also depends on the personality of the player.
If he is a known dirty, jerk-type player, it would bug me a bit, but then again, I'd probably be glad he was gone from my team anyways.
So, yea, I'd range from
