Fan Relocation?

What happens when not only a Habs fan but any fan that has relocated out of the district of their favorite team? Do you still follow your favorite team or do you srart following the team in your new destination? I've always been a believer in supporting your local team. However, I've recently moved to a different location and have a hard time trying to follow the local teams. I've been a habs fan for over fourty years, I can't just abbanded the Habs. I have a sense of loyality! I suppose you can have a favorite team and at the same time support the local team also.

My family is originally from western New York, Finger Lakes area and I have always rooted for the Canadiens, I have sinced moved to Florida and still only root for the Canadiens. My brother has a job that has caused him to moved seven or eight times in the past 20 years and he always changes and roots for the home team...for a while he was even a Kings fan....ugh...now he's back in the Northeast and roots for the Devils...

I've never been one to have loyalty to whole teams and franchises, but their players instead. So following local teams instead of the habs would be really easy in some places and literally impossible in other places if I changed location. Detroit: easy. Toronto or Pittsburgh: Impossible.

But good luck to you in your situation sir. Sounds tough.

Moved to the states when I was very , very young. Followed the habs when I was a kid, watching them on NBC ( remember Peter Puck....lol), watched Dryden, Savard, Robinson, Lafleur and all the greats. I never stopped liking the habs. I did cheer against them when the Whalers joined the NHL and will always hate Claude Lemieux :angry: .......but the habs were always my second favorite team then. Since the whale has been harpooned, I returned to my habs....could never NEVER cheer the canes.

GO HABS GO.....

CAN'T WAIT FOR MARCH 13TH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I live Regina, SK - insert joke here - we have never had a proffesional hockey team. I started watching the Habs with my grandpa. From that first game in the early seventies I became a Habs fan & I always will be.

GO HABS GO !!!

Go Riders Go!! (From a Stamps Fan) :)

My only personal experience is with the QMJHL. I grew up in Sydney, Cape Breton so once our beloved Cape Breton Oilers left for Hamilton we got a Q team, The Screaming Eagles. My father always had season tickets so I would frequent most games per season with him and although they have yet to win anything of importance I became a fan. After all they produced Marc-Andre Fleury and up and comer Andrei Pavelec (known for producing good goaltenders). I've since movied to Halifax where the local Q team is The Mooseheads. I've been here for 7 years now and admit I sort of feel attached to the team as I am feeling just as much a Haligonian as a Cape Bretoner. But they will always play second fiddle to my Eagles. It's just the way it is.

I was raised in Ontario and have been an ardent HABS fan my whole life. I joined the Canadian Forces 16 years ago and have moved around ALOT! But, I always find a way to follow Les Boys and even make it to at least one live game a year. I will NEVER change teams, Win, Lose or Draw Les Canadiens, Les Canadiens sont-La!!!!!!!
