Well, since we (those part of this thread) want our beloved habs to sacrifice this season for the good of the team, who do you root for right now to make the playoffs and/or to win the Stanley Cup???

Personally, I am rooting for the Jets. Canadian team and new team, what a way to thank the city and the fans

not rooting for anyone except for teams to knock the leafs to 9th.

I've accepted our fate now. I want us to win, but I also want Anaheim, Carolina, Edmonton, TBay to win more. So...them. Kinda.

It's funny i'm also rooting for the Jets. Because it would be great for the people in Winnipeg and also because I want them to bump the Leafs out!

And also for all the teams in front of us so we can have a good pick. Oilers beat the Flyers last night.

Funny. I live in Vancouver now and for awhile, so I have an affinity for the Nucks and normally only cheer against them when they are playing the Habs. But now I'm cheering for every team lower than the us in the standings even if they are playing us. In fact, I find myself being not happy so to say, but satisfied and contented when I check the scores and see we lost another. I really want Gringreko on this team like something fierce. I hope Gautier trades Campoli, A Kost, Kabby, Darche, and even Moen (but Moen only for a really good price as I'd prefer to re-sign him, ideally we could make a deal with him before we trade for like 6 mil for 3 years if he resigns after the end of the season) for picks. Hopefully we tank far enough to be able to pick Gringreko or we trade up to pick him with our extra picks to sweeten the deal. Then I think we throw a huge offer at Suter, 39 Mil for 6 years (6.5 per) or something. Maybe another forward if there is space then hopefully end up with something like this.

Max Pacioretty ($1.625m) / David Desharnais ($0.850m) / Erik Cole ($4.500m)
Rene Bourque ($3.333m) / Tomas Plekanec ($5.000m) / Brian Gionta ($5.000m)
Travis Moen ($1.750m) / Lars Eller ($1.500m) / Andrei Kostitsyn (or UFA) ($4.000m)
Louis Leblanc ($1.170m) / Mikhail Grigorenko ($3.250m) / Ryan White ($0.625m)
Blake Geoffrion ($1.062m) / Mike Blunden ($0.615m)

DEFENSEMEN
Ryan Suter ($6.500m) / P.K. Subban ($3.250m)
Andrei Markov ($5.750m) / Josh Gorges ($3.900m)
Alexei Emelin ($1.400m) / Raphael Diaz ($1.200m)
Yannick Weber ($0.850m)

Jets! One because they are a great story also because if they do well, the Leafs have less of a chance!

Rooting for every team close or at the bottom to win, especially Oilers and Jackets...

We have currently 3rd overall, hope we have a least 2nd overall at the end of the season.

Go Jackets !
Go Oilers !
Go Carolina !
Go Isles !
Go Sabres !
Go Bolts !

In the playoffs I will root for the Jets if they make it !!!

Leafs and Panthers. They both deserve better faith.

Same here...

Except maybe all teams facing the habs until the end of the season

But really, there isn't another team that I like... there's a bunch I hate so when the playoffs will start I'll most probably be rooting for the teams facing them.

as for the topic.
Go Jets Go, not because of the jets, its because they'll take a playoffs spot over Toronto/Washington


I'll cheer for the rangers as a 2nd favorite team.
In the West, Nashville
