London Knights, Hamilton Bulldogs, New York Rangers.

Rangers just because I have a soft spot for Nash. As well as Mcdo :'(

They have a good, well balanced, and effective team. They always manage to have plenty of depth.

Their management office is great overall, good drafting, good player management. They are probably one of the healthiest and well managed franchise in the league in term of hockey.

They play a fun kind of game.

And as a habs fan, I've always respected them. It's not like Toronto, who is a troubled franchise on many terms and who missed the playoffs so many times in the last years. Boston has learn to win, and wins. They made it, won the cup, and as much as it hurts and feels unfair, you got to respect that as a hockey fan.
I have never understood the Bruins hate. As a Habs fan from the 70's and 80's, I loved the rivalry because we always came out on top.

Now, I don't get the irrational hate. Boston is playing how they did when Cherry got fired in the late 70's. Good enough to eek out one win but perenial I didn't make it all the way.

With Galchenyuk, we are going to be a force to be reckoned with for 10 years. People labelled Price as our saviour, but its Alex who controls our destiny.

Glad to see some Blues !

I always was a Habs fan and I followed very closely the Blues, starting the Turgeon trade. Then, I fell in love with the likes of MacInnis, Pronger, Jackman, Weight, Demitra, Drake and Tkachuk.

When Gainey became the habs GM, I always felt uncomfortable, and when he traded for Gomez, I simply gave up on him and I put my effort onto the Blues. When he was fired, I tried Gauthier for few months to realize it was the same bull$hit.

I'm catching up since Bergevin took over, I'm glad I did. I know a lot of people here will say I'm not worthy to be a fan... but eh... oh well !

Seriously? They are our biggest rivals.

Detroit/Colorado.

Being a kid in the 90's, watching the Canadiens was pretty rough. I'll never forget the incredible rivalry between the Wings and Avs and those amazing playoff series that showcased a handful of my favourite players of all time, bench-clearing brawls and goalie fights. I've still got a lot of residual love left for both teams.

Hilariously enough, my dad got a pair of tickets for my birthday one year (I think it was 99/00) to a Montreal/Detroit game so that I could see Yzerman, Fedorov, Shanahan, etc. play and the absolutely terrible Habs team shut them out 3-0.

It was Pittsburgh some time ago, then Crosby came in. A few years back it was St-Louis until now. I'm slowly warming up to Columbus. I always liked the Nucks & the Sens, but not really as favorites.

Nationally: Team Germany.

I enjoy watching many teams in the NHL but I won't list them as "teams I cheer for once the Habs are out." I like watching the Bruins style of hockey. Detroit is just so technically sound that they can either be a real treat to watch or really boring. Chicago and their youth and offensive style is fun.

Man, I feel like a real slût. I had a thing with Philly for a long while and we still get together on occasion for some make-up fan-sex. But here and there I've seen other teams on the side -- the Hawks when I was young, Detroit ('cause I like 'em older and experienced), and more recently St-Louis ('cause I also like 'em young), Washington and Los-Angeles.

The Habs are cool with it. They know they're my one true love and that I'll always come home to them.

As to the Bruins, nothing personal but they're not my type. One Cup doesn't erase over 40 years of frustration, so I don't consider them scary or all that impressive. Montreal, even after 20 years of waiting, is only half way to Boston's dismal record.

Vancouver
-Luongo is my favorite goalie
-Canadian team
-Not in our conference

I've always liked Detroit and rooted for them when they were playing Colorado (and Roy) when I was younger but now that they're in our division I probably won't like them as much.

The Leafs are like the drunk fat chick in the crop top who won't take no for an answer, "you know you wanna get with this"......eventually some drunken slob saves you by hauling her inebriated carcass off to his trailer. Unfortunately this only results in more Leaf fans

Despite the knowledge that you possess the ability to break the cycle....the act is too repulsive to consider and the amount of alcohol required to make such a decision would render you unable to perform this charitable act.

It is all too much for me so I am happy to remain monogamous with my favourite team

For me, its Habs or bust. Once they are eliminated from the playoffs, the NHL does not exist until September.

Yet you don't cheer for any of them? How can you like something but not cheer for them.....even a little?

Not judging.....just asking

The mere thought of having another team to cheer for is unfathomable to me. I hate all the other teams because they are the enemy.
