Habs
Flyers
Sharks
Hawks

in that order, looks like the Habs and Shorks are done, but anything is possible as we have seen in these playoffs.

That's probably my order too. And I hate the current Flyers.

But I'd rather they win than the Hawks, at least as long as Kane is in the lineup. Though honestly I could live with the Sharks winning it all. It would suck at that moment, but I'd get over it pretty quick and I bet they wouldn't make it near the finals next year.

Plus it would be a California team winning, so the hype would die out pretty fast.

As opposed to Montreal....

THISSSSSS. Went to a road Chicago game last year and psshhh you would have thought from a regular season win they just beat us for the Cup. Horrendous bunch of crumb packers. You just cannot talk rational hockey with them.

Haha I'm not sure what a crumb packer is but I generally agree. The fanbase seems to lack any rational perspective about themselves and the team. They aren't the greatest team to step on ice, the league didn't begin with the drafting on Jonathan Toews and you can't act like arrogant pricks and expect fans of other teams to show you support during the playoffs. I hope that if they win, they celebrate with dignity (just do the opposite of whatever Montreal would do) and realize you're now only 7 Cups behind the Wings instead of 8.

So hate on but guess what, I feel like I can't miss,
I know they want me to fall, But ain't nothin' bigger than this, So just pass me the ball

I'm like some others on here.

Habs

Flyers

Sharks

Hawks

Basically anyone but the Hawks. Since the Sharks have decided not to show up in the conf finals I'm hoping the Hawks implode in the finals and get swept by either Philly or Montreal.

There's just something about the Sharks that I've never liked so out of all the teams left I'm going with Philly. I like Laviolette as a coach and even though they have some goon players, I like their toughness and the style they play. I absolutely cannot stand Chicago and their fanbase so it would be almost as bad as watching the Penguins win again if the Hawks take it this year. Montreal wouldn't bother me but after watching the first two games in this current series I really don't see them getting to the finals.

I would just like to see chicago lose in the finals, For Hossa that would be 3 cup appearances in 3 years with 3 different teams and nothing to show for it!


This is all there is to root for at this point.

My dad certainly has been enjoying the WCF so far -- much better than last year. LOL I haven't seen him this excited about Blackhawks hockey since Eddie the Eagle was in goal.

Chicago to make the finals..........then lose. I'll get to go to a Chicago home game if they make SCF, and I'll love rooting against them.

I was all for the Sharks before the series against the Wings this year - their situation reminds me a bit of Detroit in the 90s. A team with a ton of talent that just couldn't quite put it all together amidst a lot of choke jobs, which also makes for a humble fan base I can actually stand conversing with. I also like the fact that if San Jose wins - they really have taken their lumps and earned it with good drafting, a good system and good signs and trades - as opposed to the meteoric rises of some teams through sheer dumb luck, no-brainer picks falling into their laps or a hastily slapped together super-team in an all-or-bust year.

But the diving really soured me on that.

Regardless, I would still prefer San Jose to win, and will continue to do so if they have yet another disappointment.
Screw the Hawks and their idiotic fanbase -the Flyers and Canadiens fans might actually be worse - but at least those teams are not composed almost solely of bandwagoners.

Honestly, as a fan, I do not think I would have appreciated those wins (finally) as much if they had come only a year after the Wings started to get good - say in 93 or 94.
In fact, I'm sure I would have been a hell of a lot more cocky and annoying to fans of other teams as well. I now appreciate the empire building that goes into a long, sustained franchise that has a chance each and every year.
Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

I've thought about this a lot lately, being that I hate every team that is left to one degree or another:

Flyers
Habs
Sharks
Chicago

I hate the Flyers, but I think they have the best chance of beating the Western team and they have less of really a "big story" I would be opposed to. My hate for them is more bland.

As for the Habs, I actually find myself oddly liking the team they have assembled starting with Cammelieri. Unfortunately, the worst thing about the Habs has been and always will be their fans. Absolute zealous morons with the booing of USA anthem and riots after WINS. Plus, they already have 23 cups, no need to add to that pomp.

The Sharks really rubbed me the wrong way with the diving all series. Thornton is still pathetic, only getting physical when his team is being blown out and he is throwing a Crosby (aka tantrum). Heatley just makes me sick as a hockey fan, imagine if he was touted as the missing piece :blink: (even though he has done jack these playoffs).

And finally, the Blackhawks would be the worst. Their fans have already crawled out from under their rock to all act like they never left the miserable franchise. I can't hate Toews, as much as I try. But the rest of the team is easy to hate. Byfuglien gets away with so much in the crease, Homer must just be just beside himself watching at home. Kane is a pathetic little worm and Quenneville should never win a Cup. Then we come to Hossa. Oh Marian, the third time is the charm, lost twice as a rental and picks a team to call home and wins it the very first year... :puke: Blackhawks

Anybody except Chicago, honestly. I don't really wanna see Montreal win it just because of their annoying rabid fans up here but if it were Montreal vs. Chicago in the finals, I still wouldn't root for Chicago.

If it were Montreal and Chicago, I'd have to root for the Habs. Rather see them win it than the Hawks.

living in the UK means that I don't have to put up with annoying fans from any team so it just comes down to which team I hate the least.

I would have said I wanted the sharks to win but their series against the wings left a bitter taste in my mouth after all their diving and the lopsided penalties so I would hate to see the sharks win it. I ain't too fond of the hawks either so one of the 2 from the east would be preferable - probably the habs as they beat the pens and don't have pronger.

I would like to see a Sharks vs Habs for the cup... either one can win. If it ends up being Flyers vs Blackhawks, I hope the Blackhawks lose. I dont care for either team to win.

Flyers
Sharks
Habs
Hawks

Never thought I would want a team with Pronger to win but considering whats left...


Flyers- Fans may be idiots but I respect them for supporting their team year after year regardless of how good they are or how bad they suck, and whats there to hate about the hockey they been playing this post season. Plus it would crush all the Penguins slappys if they won the cup :lol:


Sharks- IDK for some reason I just never liked them.

Habs- Their fans are arrogant douchebags that taunt their own players when they don’t play well and the boo the US nation anthem, and they already have 20+ cups….Its basically like rooting for the Yankees to win the world series.


Hawks- Biggest bandwagon fans base in all of sports (Even bigger than Pittsburgh). Tend to be ignorant of the game, obnoxious and talk massive amounts of s*** without winning anything in half a century.
