Bandwagon 2012

Guys I thought it would be cool to have a main bandwagon thread for our board A thread where we can talk about the chances and root for our bandwagon team/s. Fight a little about the games between our teams

I am with the Bruins and think they will eliminate the Caps in/under 6 games. I will follow Peverley and Seidenberg most. Pevs used to be my fav. Thrasher and is still my favourite player in the league. Was really sad when he left but it was the right decision for both sides. The Jets were a great team for Wheeler to develop his game and Peverley had the chance to make an impact on a contender which he did. Seidenberg as a german player, even though I'm actually not following the german guys most of the year. His younger brother Yannic plays for my hometown team, at least .

What do you think about your teams matchups? Are there players you follow specially and if so, why?


Hope you guys like the idea

You have to consider that I don't have any relations to ANY franchises because of any geographic or other reasons at all, living in Germany Why not the Bruins? I am not that big of a fan of Seguin or Marchand, well yeah But I like Bergeron, Krejci, Seidenberg, Peverley, Thomas, Rask... I LOVED! Savard. He was my fav. player in the league before Peverley but well that turned out to be not so well with him :/ I like their marketing moves with their commercials. I like their style of playing.

I think Boston is a cool city in the States as an european

Im going with the Canucks, Panthers, Kings and Sharks. Either the Canucks or Kings will already be gone by the first round tho.

I pretty much hate everyone else, and specifically I hope the Coyotes, Rangers and Bruins () go out quickly.

Well, I love St. Louis and Chicago, so I'll be going for them.

Always liked Nashville too, but that's a lot of West coast teams.

Love the underdog Panthers and I'm really liking what the NYR are doing.

There's a good chance I'll cheer along the Panthers, but I'm all in for following the playoffs, and bandwagoning as I please.

I will most likely be cheering for Nashville.

Once it gets closer to the cup, if I don't have a clear favorite, I tend to pull for the team that has the most guys that "I want" to get a cup.

First round I'll be cheering for the Canucks in the East, and the Sens, Panthers and Bruins (a.k.a the anti-caps) Other than that, just beat the crap out of each other.

I think I will cheer for the Panthers over the Devils in the east. Those two are unfortunetly the only two teams in the east playoffs that I can stand. I the west I will cheer for the Preds and the Sharks.

Cheering for the Panthers would be like cheering for the oilers after the Jets were eliminated back in the day. Gross.

Division rivalries were a lot more intense in those days what with having to face them all the time in the playoffs.

Panthers play pre-recorded fan cheers into their arena during the game to compensate for its funeral parlor atmosphere. Pretty tough to cheer for a team that their own fans can't even get proud about.

Chicago in the west to put a nail in the Coyotes coffin. Not sure if I'll be "cheering" for and eastern team but I'm looking forward to the pitt-phil bloodbath series.

Careful, man. Part of this statement could be extremely upsetting to a select group of hyper-sensitive posters around here!

I'm all over the place and will adjust my bandwagon loyalty accordingly. I have no idea who to cheer for in the west. I'm hoping that will change after watching a few of their games. I'm definitely for Boston beating the Caps though. I haven't watched hockey long enough, or non Jets related games for that matter, to have a hate on for Boston.

My other team is the Sharks. I do like Malkin though so wouldn't mind the Pens going far. They're very fun to watch too.

Canucks or Blackhawks in the west, Pittsburgh or Ottawa in the east.
