I'd like to see the Sens make some hay. I like the Blackhawks to win it...

DEFINITELY not the Maple Laffs after how their fans act! Perhaps the Bruins as they just might have some of the classiest fans around.

PIT. Bombers. Blue Jays. Seahawks. I'm using the money saved on playoff tickets to fly to Seattle for a Seahawks game. It's been on my bucket list for 10 years.

this is probably the first year i don't really have a bandwagon. It depends how it goes, i'll probably get attached to whichever underdog makes it out of the first round.

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.
Because I'm a Jets fan more than I'm a hockey fan.

The return of the team that was so rudely taken away from us... it means a lot.

But I really didn't watch any hockey from 1996 to 2011 as a result.

1. Anahiem because of Teemu.

2. Vancouver because they are the only other Canadian team I don't despise...

Not all Leafs fans are represented by HFBoards, some are quiet and are merely upset because their team hasn't been all that good in the last decade.

Every leaf fan I know in person is an obnoxious dick about the leaves. I hope they're bounced in 4

Canucks are the only alternate team I have so I'll be in their corner. Hoping there is another series between them and Chicago in the cards.

Probably the Leafs. Although I just want to see good games more than anything else.

Surprisingly there are actually a lot of reasonable fans down in Ontario. The significant number of obnoxious fans is correlated I think at least in part to how large their fan base is.

I am not rooting for anyone. Its going to be nice to be able to watch hockey without having an aneurysm.

Why does that surprise you? I know lots of people that feel this way. Without some sort of local connection I just can't get into it. Same reasons I couldn't care less about the NFL and I ignored the NHL for 15 years. I guess I'm a Winnipeg fan first... jets fan second... hockey fan third.

To be a least a little fair to Leaf fans I should point out that outside of Ontario they take more **** and abuse about their team then any other fanbase.
When things are going good they tend to let everyone know.

Pittsburgh Penguins (been a fan of the team for 21 years and because of 66 and 10, not 87 and 71), and the Vancouver Canucks, because half of the team is made up of former Manitoba Moose graduates.

First round:
Pens(1) vs Sens (8) - Pens in 6
Bruins (2) vs Isles (7) - Bruins in 5
Caps (3) vs Rangers (6) - Rangers in 5
Canadiens (4) vs Laffs (5) - Canadiens in 6

Round 2:
Pens (1) vs Rangers (6) - Pens in 6
Bruins (2) vs Canadiens (4) - Bruins in 5

Round 3: ECF
Pens (1) vs Bruins (2) - Bruins in 6

I'm pulling for the Pens, and Bruins. I absolutely HATE the Laffs and the Canadiens, regardless if they are Canadian teams or not. Would prefer a consistent team like the Pens or Bruins go to the Cup Finals. The arrogance of Laffs fans is astounding. The nerve of the guy calling into 92 Citi FM's Bone phone the day after the Canadiens beat us, telling us how to improve our team. His team hasn't made the playoffs in almost 10 years.
