I've gone to a couple of Tips games, and seen Wings jerseys every time. I thought I'd be more isolated but I should know better from watching all the away Wings games.

Flyers? Penguins? Kings? Islanders? You could make an argument for quite a few teams, though maybe not the islanders recently.
In my mind, the Flyers stand out the most of all expansion teams. The fan base is as rabid and loyal as any O-6 team's, and there's something about the franchise that makes them 'feel' like an Original Six team as well. It's an intangible, but maybe an aggregate of the success, financial support and identity the team cultivated almost from inception.
