Who are you cheering for now?

A simple poll. It's now been long enough since the Habs got eliminated that I can watch hockey again without being too sad. So I had to adopt a favorite team for the rest of the post-season.

For me, it's Chicago.

Who did you guys choose?

I have problems with both Chicago and Washington because they were realy badly managed team, and that's the main reason they got all those picks. Red Wings ar still the best hockey player, and the most beautigul team to watch play the game.

Im not cheering for any teams outside the Habs but watching Ovechkin play is really something special..

Logically, Boston will have it easy to the Stanley Cup finale, they dont have much challenge in the East, Pittsburg can take them 1 or 2 games but thats all.. In the West, I could see all four teams making it at the finale but it will be long exausting series, so I think Boston have great chances to win the Stanley Cup this year, unfortunately for us, well deserved for them, Julien has really made the difference for this org. to turn the corner..

Scott Niedermayer and the Ducks are on mission, Ive been really impressed with this team in the first round.. Will be a hell of a serie against Det..

I would have picked Vancouver to win over Chicago but there are some injuries issues regarding Sundin and Luongo.. Luongo has had a groin injury earlier this season and looked to have re-injured it in the fourth game against St-Louis, so I wouldnt bet a penny on that serie, the Hawks are young and unexperimented but they are skating and moving the puck pretty fast and quickly, strong on the puck.. they are a beautiful team to watch, their kids have really progressed this year, I hope to see the same progression with ours next season, but the right moves will have to be done in the off season..

Say what? New Jersey always has a chance.. and if Carolina knock them out, the 'Canes have a good chance as well. Did you know Carolina was the best team in the second half of the season?

Of course, and I saw 2 games of that serie, both teams are really not impressive, they will be ate alive by the Bruins..

Since we're out, I'd be happy to see a Canadian team take the cup. It's been too long. Go 'Nucks!

I don't really care who wins as long as it isn't the ruins.

But if i have to choose one, i'll go with Vancouver.

Any team besides the Bruins and the Rangers.

Here is my order of preference:

1. Canucks
2. Capitals
3. Ducks
4. Blackhawkes
5. Red Wings
6. Penguins
7. Hurricanes
8. Devils
9. Rangers
10. Bruins

Called Pittsburgh vs. Anaheim from the get-go, so I'll stick with that. Crosby is the most perfect playoff player I've ever seen. He's definitely got a few cups in him, so I'll say they win it this year.

Watching the Ryan-Getzlaf-Perry line is something special. Most dominant line in the league. Only Detroit can take down Anaheim in the west, but I can see Teemu and Bobby taking apart Osgood.

Should be an option there for any team playing the Bruins... That would be my vote...

I don't care who wins the cup now as long as it is NOT the Bruins....

I voted None, but I have a lil feel for Chicago, they merits it.


BTW, the team I want to see eliminated in the next round is Pittsburgh, I can't stand them and their bandwagonners fans.
