from Mike Boone of the Montreal Gazette,
As adoptions go, picking a Stanley Cup contender, after your favourite team has been eliminated, is easier than bringing home a new dog.
For openers, there’s less of a commitment. Depending on the age at adoption, you can have a four-legged friend for anywhere up to 15 years.
The Stanley Cup final, on the other hand, will be played in early June. If your adopted team makes it, we’re talking eight weeks, max. It’s a spring fling – longer than a Kim Kardashian marriage, much shorter than the love affair that develops with man’s best friend.
Plus you can be fickle.
Pick a team for the opening round. If they’re eliminated, transfer your loyalty for the conference semifinal round. If those guys die, lather, rinse and repeat for the final two rounds.
