Anyone but Vancouver. And yes, this means I choose Boston over the Canucks any day.
As mentioned by a previous poster I hope the teams around us win so we can end up with a top three pick. We are not as bad as our record indicates (-7GD) but need some offensive help, forsberg, Yakupov, and Grigorenko.
Let's make one thing clear, my number 1 are still the Habs until the end of the season whether we make the playoffs or not. I will cheer and hope for the best, whatever is in the best interest for the team until game 82.
I also cheer for every team that is facing the Leafs.
I do have a soft spot for a few other teams.
In the East:
Panthers - Would be a great underdog story
Rangers - Lundqvist, great goalie.
In the West:
Los Angeles - Long overdue
St. Louis - No I'm not a Halak fanboy. I've always had a soft spot for them
San Jose - Long overdue, missed out on too many great opportunities
Nashville - Underdog!! And now you have Gill there too.
Chicago - Would be on the top of my list usually but they recently won the cup. Give someone else a chance.
Right now, anyone who could help us finish in the basement. I also root for Nashville's opponent, in order to have the better position with our second rounder (sorry Skillzy). Of course, I want the Leafs to finish 9th, and Boston to fail miserably in the first round.
When the playoffs start, I'll follow Saint Louis and Chicago in the west. Pittsburgh is also growing on me. Geno is awesome, and I really enjoy watching this team play. Can't say I'll really root for anyone, but these are the teams I'll watch.
