Your West and (Other) East team

Random thought I had yesterday.

What team (or teams) in the West and East (other than the Flyers) are you cheering for?

For me, it's Tampa Bay in the East. Not to spite Homer for Gagne or to cheer Gagne on, but I think all the pieces came together really well and from the games I've watched so far, they are incredibly fun to watch.

For the west, it's Calgary and Phoenix. Always like Iginla and Kipper, and really like Rene Bourque. I like how Phoenix developed into a good team and I hope they can improve upon last year.

I don't really care about any other team from the East. I guess if I were forced to choose I'd go with the Bruins, but that is only if I were forced. Out west it is definitely Vancouver and Minnesota. I like a lot of the players on both teams. Koivu, Kesler, the Sedins, Miettinen, and so forth.

Oilers. I like all the young kids they have.. Real exciting to watch.

In the east the only team is Atlanta. I'm a huge fan of Evander Kane.

It's odd you mention that. Growing up my favorite team in the west was Colorado, and eventually I lost track of them. I don't know why, but I've always been a fan of the expansion teams in the west...Minnesota, Columbus, Nashville. They're just not team I am specifically cheering for, at least not this year. I actually own a Wild hoodie which I wear often.

I like the Minnesota Wild and the Columbus Umberger's (a much better team name than the Blue Jackets IMO). My fiancee likes the Sharks as a second team and Parise for his looks lol. Personally, if I had to choose a player based on looks, it would clearly be Ovechkin.

Phoenix and probably the kids in Edmonton if I ever got a chance to see them. All the other teams in the east can die in a fire as far as I'm concerned.

Red Wings in the West, but the Blues are slowly creeping up as my new favorite team.

And I hate all other Eastern Conference teams.

East: None
West: Oilers - b/c I grew up in the 80's and I didn't want to cheer for the Laffs or the Frogs -as everyone around me seemed to do.

Do the Hurricanes' Ice Girls Count?

Otherwise: None, zip, zero. Us against them.

I follow other teams based on broadcasters I like: Vancouver for example.

I've always like Colorado as much (possibly even more) then Philly. The Flyers and Avs are my two favorite professional sports teams.

Beyond them, I don't care how anyone else does. I do like Minnesota, Columbus, and Carolina though.

I like the Flyers that's it. I enjoy the Avs, I like a lot of their players but that's it.

Kings and the Blackhawks before the SCF.


I guess the Caps in the East. Only because they hate the Pens too.

No one, I only care about one team, Flyers. I used to watch a lot more games but once the NHL became Bettmans baby it has turned into the No Hit League, so watching other games play 4v4 or 15 combined PP chances a game is just flat out boring and I have no real interest.

My West team was Chicago, but now that they've won the cup, it's not cute anymore. Now I'm leaning towards the Avs (especially with their BU influence).

Don't really have another team in the East. Hated Buffalo when we played them every year in the playoffs, now I think they're fun to watch, but still don't "like" them.

Yep, this is exactly it for me. Watched some Yotes games last season and now this season.

West team I like - Chicago Blackhawks - I have liked them for a long time. I always loved their jerseys and guys like Roenick, Belfour, and Chelios from my NHLPA93 days on the genesis. I also like Amonte as well.

East team I like - Carolina Hurricanes due to Rod Brind'Amour

In the east Montreal will always be a team I cheer for, but Tampa has grown on me due to them having some of my favourite ex-Flyers.

To bad Tampa didn't re-sign Nitty.

Out west I would have to say Edmonton, because Taylor hall optimizes the type of player I enjoy to watch, and he kinda reminds me of Lindros.
