Funny, since in my circle of friends I get:
Anaheim - 8x
Boston - 3x
Detroit - 2x
Montreal - 2x
NY Rangers - 2x
NY Islanders - 1x
The high amount of Anaheim fans is explainable with me and most of my friends being fans of Davos, who started to follow the NHL closer as soon as Hiller went to the Ducks.
It's pretty hard to tell for Switzerland. I guess every team with swiss players has it's "fanbase", that roots more for the player than for the team itself.
The "common" swiss hockey fan has nearly no knowledge of the NHL and is very focused on his local team. I think that's caused by our media, which tend to heavily overrate the NLA while the NHL was nearly ignored in the mainstream media for a long time. During the last 1-2 years they started to report in a regular fashion how the swiss players were doing.
