Tampa would be my choice.

In all honesty can't cheer on anyone except the Wings. Since the Wings are out, just watching hockey and not really caring who wins. Would laugh if Tampa somehow won it all though....

+1

I'll follow along, but when my team is eliminated in one sport, it's on to the next sport. Tigers have been playing great lately! Verlander followed his no hitter with a 2 hitter, and the bats are going.

Red Wings
Tigers
Roughriders
Lions
Spartans
Pistons

Unfortunately I only care slightly about the NFL and much less the other two major leagues (MLB/NBA), so hockey season still lives on for me, beyond the fact that the NHL is not the only source of hockey anyways.

Anyhow, love Stevie Y to death, and I won't cheer against him and his bolt understudy's, but Tampa won the Cup not long ago. Boston.. Vancouver.. I'd prefer to see one of them win than either San Jose or Tampa.

I am, but Tampa Bay is my 'east' team (before Yzerman... I'm from Florida). In addition I'd like to see Stevie's team pull this off.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

I've always like Tampa anyway so I will be for sure rooting for them. It makes it all the more better with Stevie now though. : )

Here are my rules for rooting when the Wings arent playing (regardless of time of year)

Rule 1. Always root for a loss from Colorado, Chicago, Pitt and San Jose

Rule 2. If none of those teams are in the game then root against Canadian teams

Rule 3. Always root for the team that benefits the Wings

Rule 4. Root for an Eastern conference team if Rule 1 or 2 are in play and Rule 3 doesnt apply.

Emergency Rule 5. Root for the team with as much in common with the Wings.

Since SJ and Vancouver are playing and their wins dont benefit us, I differ to the East. Since no teams in the East benefit the Wings I go to the team with most in common to us. That would be Tampa Bay via The Captain.

I follow almost the exact same formula, that's spooky


BTW, is Yzerbolts not the greatest nickname for a team you've ever heard?


It just flows, now if only Paul Ysebaert was still playing for them, it would be absolutely perfect!

My preference is for either Eastern team to win the Cup, I can't stomach the thought of Jumbo Choke touching the Cup, nor do I want to have to hear from all of the Canadian fans if Vancouver wins.
