    ^yeah, even though your team took my Rangers out!

    Although it's also hard not to support our local boy Crosby in this series.

    However national pride wins out and I'd like to see Ottawa win. Doing it in Canada's 150th would be sweet.

    LOL ... perhaps you can get TSN to fix their roster list?

    TSN lists the Pens with 16 Canadians and the Sens with 21 Canadians.


    Cheers


    PS

    The Pens were well down of the list in the 2013-2014 season as well.

    The latter usually goes hand in hand with the former. Yet the most appropriate term is probably "evolutionary atavism".

    Once upon a time being patriotic to your cave helped protohumans to survive and procreate. These days we express patriotism by drinking a lot of beer in support of foreign celebrities knocking out each others brains while nominally representing some place or other.

    Such patriotism was most evident during Montreal and Vancouver riots, so you are suppoting the right team - that is assuming you wish for the downtown Ottawa to be devasted.

    True!

    TSN lists the Pens with 16 Canadians and the Sens with 21 Canadians.
    To tell the truth, even though Sens has majoriry of Canadaian players , the best players in all departments are foreign players: G(Anderson) - USA, D - Karlson (Sweden), F - Bobby Ryan (US)

    ^True. And the key players for Pens include Crosby, Letang (sadly injured), Kunitz, Fleury, Murray, Schultz... Also non-Canadians Malkin, Kessel and Cullen.

    To be honest, the Pens aren't playing all that well; not even in the series vs Washington. Letang is too much of a loss.

    While I agree Letang is a big loss, there's be a lot of goal posts so it is not that the Pens aren't getting chances.
