Do I have to turn in my Leaf fan membership if I'm cheering for Montreal?

I've always been an underdog guy. If my team is out, I pick the team with the lower chance of winning and I root for them.

Nope. Go for it!

I get cheering for the underdog but once the Leafs are gone I just want entertaining hockey. So I'm fine with ignoring any kind of dislike we're "supposed" to have against Montreal and New York but I still want to see Tampa and Vegas go at it in the Finals since it'll likely provide the highest levels of entertainment for when I do turn the games on.

Mostly same. I do want Montreal to get run-over to shut up the Habs fans I know, but, other than that, at this point, don't really care who else wins.

Same here. Don't really care who wins but like CTB said, would love to see Tampa and Vegas go at it.

I don’t care really but New York and Montreal both play suppressive hockey.  I don’t really care for success coming to teams that play a modern day version of the trap

I see that as a foregone conclusion with the teams left..Though, we've been wrong before...in these playoffs. So who knows.

Also, with my original thought in mind, I can't bring myself to cheer for the Islanders.

Yeah. They also both lack high-end offence. They take similar approaches defensively, but very different on offence. Montreal throws as much as they can towards the net in the hopes that the quantity of shots makes up for the lower quality - they play a high event game, but without much actual excitement. The Islanders try to create the highest possible quality chances before shooting the puck, which leads to very low event hockey that's about as exciting as watching paint dry.

I'm nominally cheering for the Habs I guess but I'm pretty uninterested in actually watching any of this.
