I like the way the Islanders play so yeah....

But TBH I have zero interest in any playoff game that doesn't involve the Jets in it.
Maybe this'll change but I have a feeling it won't.
Baseball time.

No one. My NHL boycott kicks in now that the Jets are out. Lockout + No Jets in playoffs = Playoffs do not exist.

Time to get in shape and learn up on 2013 draft class.

I always go Canada first, so Canadiens/Sens/Leafs (in that order) in the East, and the 'Nucks in the West. After that, we'll see.

Been a fan of the pens ever since The Moose suited up on a call up back in the IHL days. Altho I dont follow them nearly even a fraction of what I did then Pens will always be my number two. they earned it. Honerable mention to the habs as my gf is french and was born to french parents in Quebec. Altho I dont have high hopes for them now since Emilin (hate that guy so much) went out a few weeks ago.


P.S any one remember the front page sun article with Crosby in a 96 Jets jersey? Classic!!"

Leafs have a Manitoba boy in their nets, hopefully that persuades some of you to jump on the wagon.

Most likely the Blues and Blue Jackets (if they make it) in the West. Don't really dislike any of the other West teams. I guess from a selfish Jets perspective we want the Hawks to lose in the 1st or 2nd round?

The Islanders are probably the only team in the East I could pull for, because I think their fans deserve it, but I hate the idea of their owner Wang being rewarded with a playoff run after all of his mismanagement and his treatment of his fanbase.

no one. if it was possible for all teams to lose that would be my preference right now. that will probably change in the coming weeks, but i doubt I'll watch any hockey. just the highlights probably. I've got some TV shows that have been on the back burner because of the insane Jets schedule and honesly I'd rather jsut catch up on them than watch playoff hockey with no Jets

I jumped on the Blackhawks bandwagon about 35 years ago. See no reason to change now.

If I had to pick a team I'd go with NYI because they remind me of our team, but I look at individuals and the first person who comes to mind that I would love to see hoist a cup is Alfie. Second would be Teemu and then Toews, with honorable mention to Iggy (who is no doubt the favorate to do just that)

It is unfortunate that the Jets are out of it. I would have much rather like seeing the Jets in the playoffs than the Leafs or Rangers.

Any team playing the Leafs will get my support.

Any team playing the Pens will get my support. Hopefully, some one will take care of Matt Cooke appropriately.

Of course, i will be routing for the Sens all the way in the East.

In the West, i like the Hawks chances.

Surprised to see so many people claim that they "don't care" and "won't watch" now that the Jets are out of it.

Not sure I really understand why ANYONE would deprive themselves of the best sporting event in the world regardless of whether or not their team is in it. I'm a hockey fan first and a Jets fan second.

I've never understood this either. I watched before we had Jets 2.0, and I will watch when they're not playing, too. Playoff hockey is the best hockey, without a doubt.

as I said... haven't got time for it. Spring is here and much too late. there are way better things to do. intersting that the first real spring day (above 10C) is the day after Jets are eliminated.

I'll probably get back at it a bit for the conference finals and cup. I doubt I'll watch an entire game start to finish, though. and I won't feel deprived at all.

Bandwagonning for Washington and NY (both) in the East and Chicago in the West. If Minnesota or Columbus can climb to 7th, I'll cheer for them too. I often end up cheering for Boston before I realize it though, so there's a good chance I will end up turning on one of the NY teams.

still want a canadian team to win the cup, but Pit(iginla) and our neighbours to the south, Minnesota will get a bit of support from me

I'm pulling for the Wild to even make it in. That way I can go down there and witness my first live NHL playoff game, seeing as we are yet to host one.
