Minnesota, the biggest Swedish community in the States. And they keep piling up on Finnish players and still wondering why they never win anything? Karma is a ....

But back to the topic on support from our side of the pond.
Myself I'm a Bruin, been so since the early 90's
AIK my team also had a very similar jersey to Bruins in the 92-93 season i believe? (Same colors also helps) And i know a bunch more of us that support the Bruins. A couple of players from AIK has also been in Boston during the years, which obviously helps. (Tim Thomas the latest)

And also Philly or NY Rangers seems to have a large amount of followers from AIK-fans that support a NHL team.
NY Rangers - Largest city as Stockholm, classic team, etc...
Philadelphia - Per Erik Eklund (85) and to a lesser extent Pelle Lindbergh along with a similar fan-base along with Bostons and NY that an AIK-fan can relate to.

Otherwise i would say that it's the team with the most or should i say popular swedes are playing and the team that gets the most TV-air time. Ie the east coast.

That's my 5c on the topic.
