I'll be cheering for Yip, not because I'm a fan of Yip but because the Preds are my second favourite team so I'll cheer for Yip even though I'm not a fan of him.
Also I'll be cheering for Galiardi and the Sharks. I like the Sharks a lot so hopefully they can do well. I'm not a fan of Thornton but other than him I like all of their stars. Also Galiardi is one of my favourite players in the league.
I want to jump the nashville bandwagon, but I just couldn't imagine watching all their games. They can make a game quite boring...
I never associated Nashville hockey with boring. I love their fans they are rabid and that arena is loud. If the Avs dont make it in i'll prolly head East and cheer for the Caps. I wish no success to the Blues thanks to their fans and hope they get ousted in the 1st round. I will however root for Shatty and Stew to score all the goals. If the Kings eek in I will cheer for them always been a huge Kopitar fan.
Blues first. Don't care for Stewart but I love Shatty and I've always liked the Blues.
After that probably San Jose because I like Thornton and the ex-Avs.
Then Nashville. Not because of Yip or anything, but I like how they've shown you can have a rabid fanbase in the south. Other than the stupid chant after goals I really like the team and the fans.
Then Vancouver (shutup, I know, I'm a traitor) because I like a lot of their players (mostly except Burrows and Lapierre)
