Washington Capitals or maybe Columbus.

After the Expos left Montreal, the only joy I get is checking how far down the standings the Nationals are.

If I had to make a choice, it would be (hometown) Canadiens.

I'd probably have to say the Boston Bruins. I went up to Boston for the Winter Classic this year and loved it. In my opinion, the fans are passionate like us and they like a blue collar game. They pride themselves on the gritty playes like Lucic, Chara, Recchi, and Neely. I also will say the city was very hospitable to Flyer fans. I didn't see any fights during the Winter Classic, and we we did start to argue someone would randomly yell, "Hey, F$%# the Yankees," or "Hey, F$%# Sidney Crosby." Then we all got along again. Anyway, my vote would be with Boston. Great town, great fans, and a gritty team.

I'd be with Cannon on this one.

Well, I already went through this once, with the Whalers. It sucks...it's probably the crappiest feeling you can have following sports, because no matter how devastating any loss is there's always "next year". Unless your team leaves.

I'm a New Englander who lives in Florida now, so it would be either the Bruins or Lightning. If it happened today I'd probably lean toward TB, but what scares me is there's always a danger of relocation with a team like TB.

I would probablly become a Coyotes fan. Just all the trouble they went through and the way they try to overcome it, gives me some respect for them.

They haven't overcome anything. It's a team that is hemorrhaging money and should be in another city, but instead is propped up by the league itself because Gary Bettman is an obstinate child.

I would cheer for whatever team is playing against the Penguins or the Capitals. If they were playing each other, I'd cheer for a natural disaster...

You blame the players and fans for that?

The fans don't exactly go out of their way to see Coyotes games (even when they are a winning team). However, more thought should have gone into the Phoenix franchise instead of seeing a big population and assuming it would automatically make money.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Coyotes don't even exist after this upcoming season... unless Bettman delays the ownership deadline yet again so the league can foot the bill some more for the inevitable truth that the team just can't survive there.

There's no way I could root for another team. It just wouldn't be genuine.

I mentioned the Kings earlier and there is only one reason for that, I have been going to the Monarchs games for going on 10 years, so i do to pay attention with the kids in LA.

I can't believe that not one single person so far has picked the Leafs
