Most popular visiting teams

With all else being constant, which 5 or 6 visiting teams do you think would be the most popular? That is to say, what are the safest bets for sellout crowds?

My first thoughts were:
Kings
Hawks
Rangers
Pens
Bruins

Wings have to be in there. There are far too many Wings fans at Avalanche home games when we play them.

Hawks and Wings are the big two.

I've noticed a lot of Flyers fans at the Pepsi Center when they've come to town the last few times.

Not so many Kings fans, to be honest.

Penguins are up there too...bandwagoners.

Look on stub hub, pretty easy to see which teams drive up the market. East coast teams plus probably the Hawks off hand. Pens for sure plus Bruins, Rangers are up there.

Nobody cares about the Kings that much, I've easily gotten tickets. Same with Flyers.

Wings are #1 by a mile. Lots of fans here love Detroit.

Ironically none of them love Detroit enough to move back there. Odd.

Frei said on the radio this morning that over 300,000 michigan/Detroit natives have moved to Colorado over the past 10 years (he had an exact number) and there's been less than 10 Coloradans move to Detroit in that time

It's wings #1. Then hawks then penguins and I would put the wild up there too. Tons of Minnesota people here

Very few kings fans despite the obnoxious amounts of California transplants here

The wings. They have a good fan-bases everywhere in the league because of Michigan natives left because of the bad economy in the state and city of Detroit.

Yeah, Wings and Hawks by far. Pittsburgh, Minny and Dallas would round out my top 5.
