What is everyones second favorite team?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't watch Winnipeg but I want to see them do well.

Favorite teams to watch are the leafs (Love seeing them lose) and probably the Sens. If I had a second favorite team though I'd have to say Washington. Ever since the year Mike Green had like 500 goals in a season I've enjoyed watching them play.

Most hated teams:

Montreal

Boston

San Jose

PIT

I don't even mind Chicago :) We always seem to beat them and I loved watching Wings Vs Hawks game. It's really a shame we don't play them 8 times a year anymore

Living close to Buffalo, I've gone to about 10 Sabres games (8 times they've played the Wings :cool:). Detroit and Buffalo have a lot of similarities, so I've always liked to see the Sabres play well. Things will change though since we're in the same division now, and when they start winning games.

Habs. Great history and Montreal is something special when they are on a run. I can just open my apartment window and listen for the screams and profanity to keep track of the score come playoff time.

They are on a run a losing run. They are only ever something special when price is in net. The team as a whole is garbage without price

Oops, I meant the city is something special when they are on a run. Just the environment of everyone paying attention to the team. There was a class a University of Montreal on how The Canadiens have taken the place of religion as Quebec went through the quiet revolution. It is a dedicated following haha.

I agree about the actual team, though.

I already posted that I have no other teams, but I do like certain classic teams.

Best examples would be the 1977 Canadiens, 1980's Islanders and the 1994 Canucks. I like the history of the game that way, even though I don't root for those teams today.

Rivalries:

Pittsburgh vs Philadelphia nothing comes even close

This for sure. Don't like either team (aside from a couple players) but I love watching them face each other.

Aside from that, I really like the kings. Although that took a hit when Lucic went there :P

Also, I really like the oilers, and stars. And would like to see Tampa do well but since they're in our division, not too well haha

The Wild.

I get them on tv, so if the Wings aren't on, I tune in for the Wild games. Every time I've gone to see the Wings play, it's been vs the Wild since they're the only place nearby that I can get to without a passport.

Wild fans are generally the nicest people around. You can go to their place in full Wings gear and get treated like a welcomed guest. There may be some good-natured ribbing, but they're pretty knowledgeable (except for the loud ones online, but that's any team).

Plus they have a great anthem that is fun to sing along with, even if you're in Wings gear.

Now that the Wings are out of the west, the Wild are my team to root for in that conference.

Yep.

Never emotionally tied to any other team other than USA Hockey in the Olympics, WJCs, and now the World Hockey Classic.

I really liked watching the Plymouth Whalers when they were in town and always root for OHL teams in general in Memorial Cup and enjoy a Milwaukee Admirals game or two during the season because that's where I live, trying to go especially when the Griffs are in town.

I see Washington play more than any team aside from the Wings. I dont hate them but I wouldn't say I root for them. I guess I'd say Columbus is my second fav. Or Winnipeg. I liked the way the BJs played under Richards, and the fan support they get. I like Winnipeg because I really like several of their individual players.

I regularly forget the Ottawa Senators are a National Hockey League team. If not for the occasional reference to Erik Karlsson I'd forget about them completely between each game we play against them.

They're like the St. Louis Blues. Sometimes I catch myself saying "oh yeah, St. Louis has a hockey team...huh".

When I was a kid my #2 team was the Pittsburgh Penguins by a mile, I absolutely loved Super Mario. I can still remember watching as a kid his game 2 goal against Minny and just being in awe.

My current #2? I would have to embarrassingly say Toronto. Cant help it, my father in law loves them and I watch games with him all the time. After watching him watch them lose year after year after year, you cant help but start to pull for them a bit. Though the Babcock move definitely gave me back some of the hate I used to have as a kid towards them.

I liked the 2001 Penguins. That team was fun to watch when Mario came back.

I hope 99.6% of the reason you liked the 94 Canucks was because of Bure.

A large reason. Also, I love those uniforms. Plus, I hated the Rangers.

That team dressed Odjick, Tim Hunter and Antoski for much of the playoffs. Definitely a fun team to watch.
