WHo are you rooting for now??? (for those who wants to tank)
 
Well, since we (those part of this thread) want our beloved habs to sacrifice this season for the good of the team, who do you root for right now to make the playoffs and/or to win the Stanley Cup???

Personally, I am rooting for the Jets. Canadian team and new team, what a way to thank the city and the fans

habtastic 02-24-2012 01:18 AM

not rooting for anyone except for teams to knock the leafs to 9th.

I've accepted our fate now. I want us to win, but I also want Anaheim, Carolina, Edmonton, TBay to win more. So...them. Kinda.

The Jet's, my cousin plays for them, after them the predators, there an organization that top to bottom has been run well

Who is your cousin?

andy28 02-24-2012 01:25 AM

I have a bunch of teams I would be ok with winning.

Detroit
Vancouver
Ottawa
Winnipeg

not in that exact order maybe...but Detroit does come first.

PATCHESx67 02-24-2012 01:46 AM

any team playing against boston or the leafs other then that i always liked the Kings

Strik_IX 02-24-2012 02:04 AM

I ain't rooting for no one until the fat lady sings (although I do want a high pick :S )

Kimota 02-24-2012 02:07 AM

It's funny i'm also rooting for the Jets. Because it would be great for the people in Winnipeg and also because I want them to bump the Leafs out!

And also for all the teams in front of us so we can have a good pick. Oilers beat the Flyers last night. :handclap:

I ain't rooting for another NHL team.

Nicko999 02-24-2012 03:19 AM

Blues: HALAK
Ducks: SAKU... and because I actually like their team.
Preds: GILL deserves another shot at the cup
Boston's opponent: no explanation needed.

Funny. I live in Vancouver now and for awhile, so I have an affinity for the Nucks and normally only cheer against them when they are playing the Habs. But now I'm cheering for every team lower than the us in the standings even if they are playing us. In fact, I find myself being not happy so to say, but satisfied and contented when I check the scores and see we lost another. I really want Gringreko on this team like something fierce. I hope Gautier trades Campoli, A Kost, Kabby, Darche, and even Moen (but Moen only for a really good price as I'd prefer to re-sign him, ideally we could make a deal with him before we trade for like 6 mil for 3 years if he resigns after the end of the season) for picks. Hopefully we tank far enough to be able to pick Gringreko or we trade up to pick him with our extra picks to sweeten the deal. Then I think we throw a huge offer at Suter, 39 Mil for 6 years (6.5 per) or something. Maybe another forward if there is space then hopefully end up with something like this.

Max Pacioretty ($1.625m) / David Desharnais ($0.850m) / Erik Cole ($4.500m)
Rene Bourque ($3.333m) / Tomas Plekanec ($5.000m) / Brian Gionta ($5.000m)
Travis Moen ($1.750m) / Lars Eller ($1.500m) / Andrei Kostitsyn (or UFA) ($4.000m)
Louis Leblanc ($1.170m) / Mikhail Grigorenko ($3.250m) / Ryan White ($0.625m)

DEFENSEMEN

I hope the Jets will make the playoffs

David_99 02-24-2012 06:39 AM

Jets! One because they are a great story also because if they do well, the Leafs have less of a chance!

ReVeuF 02-24-2012 07:29 AM

Rooting for every team close or at the bottom to win, especially Oilers and Jackets...

We have currently 3rd overall, hope we have a least 2nd overall at the end of the season.

Go Jackets !
Go Oilers !
Go Carolina !
Go Isles !
Go Sabres !
Go Bolts !

In the playoffs I will root for the Jets if they make it !!!

Help 02-24-2012 07:55 AM

Still rooting for the Habs but I'm also pulling for whoever is playing the Leafs

Misery loves company

MasterDecoy 02-24-2012 09:03 AM

Seb 02-24-2012 09:05 AM

Leafs and Panthers. They both deserve better faith.

Same here...

Except maybe all teams facing the habs until the end of the season :sarcasm:

But really, there isn't another team that I like... there's a bunch I hate so when the playoffs will start I'll most probably be rooting for the teams facing them.

as for the topic.
Go Jets Go, not because of the jets, its because they'll take a playoffs spot over Toronto/Washington


I'll cheer for the rangers as a 2nd favorite team.
In the West, Nashville
