Hurricanes.  Also like the Kings, and.. *shudder* the Ducks.  I have the most respect of any team for the Bruins.

Since the Dallas Stars :evil:  :evil: just ended the Nashville Predators Season in  a Stupid Shootout,i 'm officially jumping on the Detroit Red Wings Playoff Train


Welcome aboard the bandwagon hopefully you enjoy your stay. Sad to hear that but not surprisingly the Preds needed scoring help since almost forever.

I've always had the Stars as my second favorite team. Being an old timer, I remember the days of Bobby Smith, Bill Goldsworthy, Dino Ciccarelli, Cesare Maniago, Danny Grant, Derian Hatcher, etc., and rolled over my fandom (distinctly second to the Wings) when they moved to Dallas. Having Jim Nill over there hasn't hurt the connection, either.

I was pulling for the preds to pull it off, but you guys will do better next season...
A handful of damn good young talent with some experience under its belt, and (hopefully) a healthy pekka rinne.... You'll be tough for sure.
But until then, its good to have you on board.

Red Wings first and always.


However, being that I grew up in Pennsylvania and detest anything and everything s***zburgh, I always have liked the Flyers.  Now that I live in Columbus, I really would like the CBJ to have some success so the franchise can grow here and the hockey environment stablizes so the kids can play the great game.


Obviously if either is playing the Wings I cheer for the Wings, but those 2 I don't mind seeing have success either. 


Oh and F s***zburgh, s***cago, s*** Jose, LA Queens and anyone and anything associated with the Divealanche.

Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

I really only follow Detroit and GR, but I must say the Canucks have been a fun team to watch lately,...implode off ice, that is.

Don't have a second favorite team, but I like a lot of favorite players from other teams.

I don't know if I have a 2nd team now. When I was a kid in 1997, I adopted the Flyers as my 2nd favorite team after the Red Wings beat them in the Finals. I liked because of their name, uniforms, the fact that they were the team that the Red Wings beat in the Stanley Cup Finals, and I also liked their history of being the sort of big badasses of the NHL. I always thought of them as the NHL's Oakland Raiders. 


These days, I tend to pull for the Original 6 teams to at least make the playoffs. There's nothing worse for the league and fans than having a bunch of small non-traditional market teams such as Anaheim and New Jersey in the Stanley Cup Finals every year. It's no wonder ratings were in the crapper during the early 2000s. 


I also find myself pulling for the Blues during the playoffs since they have never won the Stanley Cup, and play in a great sports town that reminds me a lot of Detroit.

I hate every other NHL team

I bought some Maple Lea Tea.  It cost a fortune and didn't come with a Cup.

I support the Jackets since I live in Columbus, but not when the Wings come to town.

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:



San Jose



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

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing. The goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

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
