Buffalo would probably top the list. One of the few places where people actually watched the Kings/Devils series outside of LA or the NY area. I mean, the Kings and Devils! It sounds like Buffalo does that every year though. A weird and kooky bunch that deserves a Cup of their own if they're watching the Kings and Devils play for one.

As a fan of a team that won the first Cup in franchise history, after 4+ decades of existing as an NHL team, any city in a similar situation would be high on the list. Except Vancouver. Alright, alright, maybe Vancouver too. Nah, just kidding.

Either Washington or Philadelphia.

I'm not counting either Vancouver(my team) or Toronto(my home town), though.

American bias aside, Toronto. Only because their fans have remained absurdly loyal and deserve to see a cup raised. They pay up the ass to see a bad team every year.

I hate them but I'd go with Toronto. You'd be a legend for life and make the Hall of Fame if you scored 23 goals in a season.

Does everyone listing Columbus think the NHL was invented in 2007?

I'm going to guess the Islander's? but they won 4 cups. Giants won 2 or more superbowls? hehe fun game.

I can't say Toronto or Vancouver. That's what makes sports fun. Especially when your team sucks like my mine the last few years. *cough*decades*cough*

I have friends and family in both cities and they are nice cities. But it makes hockey fun to cheer against them and enjoy in their suffering. Personally when it comes to hockey I can only cheer for one team with any real emotion and that's Edmonton. But I find then next best thing is to cheer against other teams. Vancouver and Toronto top that list.

I'll say Buffalo. In all my years of watching hockey they've never had that team that was one you thought for sure was true cup contender from beginning to end. The one year they started to actually get there they had to blow it up.

In reality it's not who would I want to see win the cup other than my team. It's more who would I mind the least hehe

No city in all professional sports would lose it's collective **** more than Toronto would for a Stanley Cup.

Frankly, everyone should be rooting for a Leafs Cup victory if only for the sheer entertainment value.

Even if I put aside my Leaf fandom I will still choose Toronto. Ending the curse in such a hockey mad fanbase would make you a legend.

Buffalo is my second choice.

I think actually winning might ruin it for us. After decades of "maybe next year", what the hell would our motto be if we won? My guess is "maybe we should try and get an NFL team now." We'd probably just rebroadcast the winning season and ignore the next one.

Frankly, no. The entertainment is found in playoffs being out of reach in January. The Leafs are the reason Vancouver didn't a team during the original expansion. Not a coincidence they haven't had a sniff since. We still sacrifice farm animals every September to insure the losing continues.

We would win, riot, realize we didn't lose and then rebuild the city. That is at least 3 reality shows rolled into one.

Probably Toronto, putting aside bias.
