Growing up in the '80s, the Devils were #1, but the Whalers were a solid 1A. '86 was my first playoff cheering for a team I liked instead of defaulting to the Canadiens with the rest of my family. If '88 hadn't happened for the Devils and had the Whalers followed up with any success of their own, who's to say how the pendulum would have swung for me fandom-wise. Ron Francis is still my all-time favourite player. Having said all that, as much I liked the Whalers, I can't stand the Hurricanes to an equal degree. I despise the Rangers, Flyers and Leafs, then the Canes and Penguins are right there in my bottom 5.
