Which Big 7 team do you cheer for when your's is eliminated
If in an international tournament your team is eliminated (and to keep the poll from having too many options we will say only big 7 teams are left) who do you cheer for.

Finalnd usually. I like their style of play and they usually have at least one Koivu.

Ceremony 12-09-2012 05:48 PM

Whichever country has Avs playing for it.

TrillMike 12-09-2012 05:52 PM

Whoever has the most Dallas Stars. Usually Sweden/Finland/Canada. Not voting.

Dellstrom 12-09-2012 05:53 PM

American voting Sweden, I love Sweden. :)

StringerBell 12-09-2012 05:55 PM

Usually just cheer against whoever knocks us out. Sweden is always very likeable though.

Kane One 12-09-2012 05:56 PM

I'm American.

If it's the Olympics, Sweden just because of Lundqvist. If it's anything else, Canada.

Devils Trap 12-09-2012 05:57 PM

American who goes for Russia if eliminated

Vankiller Whale 12-09-2012 06:00 PM

Sweden, I guess.

XO 12-09-2012 06:01 PM

used to be Finland if Sweden we're elimanted but that was only because I loved Selšnne.

right now? none, I guess. I like Switzerland but they dont go further than Sweden too often and I couldn't vote on them so..

Montreal Shadow 12-09-2012 06:01 PM

Maybe you should have just putted the 7 different teams as poll options. With so many different choices, it makes it hard to draw any conclusion from the results just by looking at the poll and not by pulling out a stats table. Voted USA.

Ferros 12-09-2012 06:02 PM

I often cheer for Russia, for some reason I have always liked them - except for when Sweden is playing against them of course.

Taro Tsujimoto 12-09-2012 06:02 PM

Depends on who has the most Sabres.

JayKing 12-09-2012 06:20 PM

Gotta love those Swedes, but if they're also eliminated, probably Finland and Czech Republic

VinnyC 12-09-2012 06:32 PM

As a dual citizen, my duty is to the USA whenever Canada is dropped.

If the Americans are also goners, then Finland becomes my choice. After then, the Czechs and Slovaks. Then Swedes. Then Russians.

Actually, I might end up preferring the Finns over the USA. I have an unhealthy obsession with Finnish people and things. Sami Salo, Teemu Selanne, Sonata Arctica, Ensiferum, Angry Birds...

Backlund 12-09-2012 06:39 PM

Usually Finland or Sweden but probably USA this year because they have some Flames prospects.

Affinity 12-09-2012 07:07 PM

American saying Sweden! I got the Swedish blood in meh.

Nizdizzle 12-09-2012 07:19 PM

Canadian saying Sweden

Tkachuk4MVP 12-09-2012 07:30 PM

Voted American saying Canada, but I thought the poll asked who you would vote against. :laugh:

Anyway, like others have said I'd probably just cheer for whichever country (besides Canada) had the most players from my team.

Bonecrusher11 12-09-2012 07:34 PM

'Murican saying Czech Republic. Mostly because of Krejci. Germany is my second team, but they are usually long gone before the USA.

Paris in Flames 12-09-2012 07:37 PM

Canadian saying Finland.

Eskimo44 12-09-2012 07:37 PM

Finland AINEC. Besides the fact that the don some pretty snappy blue duds i love the way that the fins play. Scrappy ******** who usually play very well as a team.

MastuhNinks 12-09-2012 07:44 PM

Canadian saying Finland. I like Finnish players, they have slick jerseys, and I love that hockey is #1 there.

Zippy316 12-09-2012 08:08 PM

Honestly, anyone but Canada. Not saying everyone is, but there's a lot of Canadian fans that think that Canada is otherworldly compared to all the other teams, so it's good to see them get shut up.

Hammer Time 12-09-2012 08:39 PM

Slovakia. Love how they're a small country that really punches above their weight when it comes to hockey. Underdog stories FTW!
