The Wild is my team from start to Finnish but there are a few other teams that are fun to watch like the Flyers, Habs and Caps. I even do enjoy an Ottowa game from time to time because I have always been an Alfie fan.

The Pens-Flyers series; best damn series I have seen in a long long while.

I also enjoy watching the Finnish team in the WC. Shout out to all the Finnish brothers that made that happen

And of course the Czech republic and Slovakia...soft spot...

Oh yeah, and I love watching Vancouver -



get the crap beaten out of them

The way I see it, we stole 2 draft picks from them. And no one can convince me otherwise

Don't mind the Hawks at all, but I am so sorry you're a Cubs fan...

I live in Wrigleyville and boy is that an experience! By the way, they're really really bad... I've never seen a group of fans be so loyal, to a team that sucks so much, and get so excited when they score AT ALL, even if they're getting their butts kicked... And they're always really really drunk....

Don't give a damn about the rest of the NHL to be honest...

Much rather watch collegiate or high school hockey; never mind play, before I'd watch a game that I have no vested interest in.

Do i need to say what mines is myself here or should l let OTH and Talon say it?

Only one other team i follow closely besides the Wild and that is the Red Wings, whatever you hate about all the success they've had, they run their organization the right way, and their star players are the greatest ambassodor's for the game of hockey not just on the ice, but off it. Lidstrom, Yzerman, Federov, Larionov, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, you can't hate them like a Ms. Cindy because of his antics, nothing but the greatest respect in the world for them and that's why i like the Wings as my 2nd favorite team.

As a Winnipegger I look to Minnesota as kindred spirits.
You guys getting the Wild back gave our city hope.
Years later, we're getting our first glimpse of hockey relevance in Minnesota at the draft.

I remember years ago, whenever i'd see the Jets it would be vs. the North Stars. (a lot of times on Boxing Day if I recall correctly.)
It was a very good rivalry.
It should be resurrected.
I took in the Jets vs. Wild game in December and shook hands with a Wild fan, that made the trip down, at the end of the game. It was a nice moment.

It will be another year still before we get moved to a more reasonable division. But i truly look forward to Winnipeg vs. Minnesota in the upcoming seasons.

Our teams could be on very similar paths.
Albeit, one of these teams sooner than the other.
Good for you guys.

San Jose in the past few years for proximity during the fall and spring, Sabres and Caps too for Vanek and Ovechkin since they entered the league.

I've always been partial to the original 6.

Boston and Montreal are my favorites of that group, with Toronto just behind.

My other favourites are Red Wings, Pens and Ducks.

Red Wings: Their game is probably most showy for me. (Datsuyk, Filppula )

Pens: Superstars, duh.

Ducks: Mighty Ducks logo was an icon of hockey for me when I was even younger. Selänne-Kariya. Will watch more matches next season because of Vatanen.

This will probably be unpopular, but my "east" team is the Leafs.

Preds. I like how they draft. Love Suter and Weber. Probably the best fans for a non-traditional hockey market. And I live in Nashville.

I tend to pretty much root for the Finns in the league. Because of Sami Salo I actually wanted Nucks to win SC, no one deserves it more than he does.

Carolina Hurricanes & SCSU Huskies.

I like the Canes for a few reasons...
  • First, I was drawn to the team because of their alternative logo. I thought it was creative, and I was going to art school at the time.
  • Second, their third jerseys (with alternative logo) are one of my favorite jerseys of all time.
  • Third, they're a Southern team whose seen some success - I'm a sucker for seeing non-traditional hockey markets succeed, and I like to think that hockey can be enjoyed by anyone, anywhere.
  • I'm a big Eric Staal fan, as well as Jeff Skinner & Cam Ward.

I like the Huskies because I'm currently a student going to SCSU. I'll cheer for them over other collegiate teams, but I'm not a die-hard fan. I'll pretty much cheer for any Minnesota college hockey team over other national teams.

I like the Wings but in a strange way. I love watching them play (mainly Datsyuk and Lidstrom) but I never really want them to win. Other than that I would say Philly.

Been a fan of Philly for decades, but that started as a kid because they were the same uniform colors/patterns as my home town. I cooled on them a bit when they got Pronger because I hate him with a passion. But since he didn't play really last season, I found myself back to cheering for them.

I also used to be a fan of the Canadians, (started when Bobby Smith went to Montreal) but their whole treatment of the coach who couldn't speak French; coupled with the attitude/behavior of the majority of Habs fans who post on HFF just soured me on the whole organization, and they are no longer a team I care for.

Also was partial to the new Jets, but after PMB got decapitated there, I just can't like them now.


So I guess bottom line ..... if its not the WILD, then its either the Pronger-LESS Flyers or no one.

Don't have a second favorite, never will... They're players I like and will root for them, but will never cheer for a team other than the Wild, unless they are playing Vancouver

I like Burke, but could care less about the Leafs. I hope Burke shuts up Boston but they clearly have the first and second laughs.

Penguins. I have a ton of extended family who live in Western PA. Mario was so fun to watch. I like Crosby too. The city of Pittsburgh will always be a Steel Curtain, Steelers city, but the Penguins are not that far behind.

Ottawa Senators, mainly because of Alfie and the type of team it was in the early 2000's. Plus the way the team always is and the type of system they play. Plus I got to like a lot of their players.
