Been cheering for the Panthers all year so the Laffs will be the only team to miss every playoffs since lockout.

Pretty cool roster too. Tallon is a badass GM, I would be afraid to trade with him.

I am happy for their fans that they are getting to the dance, but this is exactly the type of team that I do not like.

They simply have no edge.

Of course for the panthers there was the 1996 chapter, but it would be great if they'd manage to defeat some powerhouses and unexpectedly make their way to the SCF.

Teams I will cheer for in the first round in the east :

-Florida
-Buffalo, though the rangers winning this wouldn't bother me.
-Ottawa
Ottawa --------
How can you go for a division rival.....Man I hate that team!

I've never really considered them a rival either.

Historically, teams who make the playoffs for the first time in years tend to be eliminated very early on.

I don't think the panthers will get very far.

I wouldn't mind cheering for the panthers in the east, i don't have anything against you guys,in fact i love your coach and wish the habs could find someone like him.
My team in the west was always the preds and will be this year. I have a lot of admiration for this team staff from management to coaching, the way they perform under cap.and now with the kosty brothers..ou lalala

Go Panthers! Love the underdog story it'd be cool to see them go far.

I'm leaning towards Pittsburgh or Nashville though.

i don't think so. the year we 'over-acheived', we did by not getting injured. they have been through some serious injury troubles and still managed to make the playoffs. they got good veterans, good goaltending and great coaching and rather ironocally, like us years past, they score timely goals and they win when they have to.

go cats

you can be from, say, chelsea, and consider them your second favorite team?

although after this year, it's getting tougher to like them - or their fans. except jerk store, he's cool

Definitely rooting for the Panthers in the East. A great story, and a great job being done by Dale Tallon. I questioned many of the moves he made in the off-season but credit to him for turning that team into a possible division winner. Also not sure if Tallon hired Kevin Dineen, but that was also a great move, looks to be a great coach.

Bring on the rats!

I like the undercat story, but I'll only be cheering for western teams, Hawks and Blues. And I'll watch Pens' games cause I like the way they play.
