As long as Phillthy or the Craps don't win the Cup, I'm happy.

1996 playoffs?? Sorry, but after that, I never want to see the Panthers win anything...ever.

I'm rooting for either the Predators or the Blues. Both teams are the opposite of us. Strong defense, not that great offensively. And it helps that they're in the West. I never want any Eastern team to win unless their name is the Penguins.

I'm all in with Nashville because I think they have the best chance of preventing any team in the East I hate from winning the Cup

I'm not really cheering for anyone, but there are some teams I wouldn't mind seeing win for the following reasons:

-Florida, because they have former Frontenac Erik Gudbranson playing for them. Would be kind of cool to see someone I've seen play live over a hundred times raise the Cup.

-Ottawa, because they're Canadian. Sue me.

-St. Louis, because they're proof of what you can do if you play strong defense and work hard.

-Nashville, because they're just likeable.

-Phoenix, because Mike Smith is a good Kingston boy (Don Cherry impersonation).

Really, the only teams I don't want to see win it are Philly, Rangers, Boston, or Washington.

As much as I dislike Mike Richards, I still have to go with the Kings...especially if Philly makes it to the finals. I detest Flyers fans that much, and the troll would be epic.

I want Preds to win the cup.
The bolded for me too. While I wouldn't hate to see the Caps do well simply b/c they are affiliated with my local AHL team I'm affraid Holtby is going to cool off and make it too easy on the Rags or Flyers. I'd pull for Ottawa but I have the same concern.

I think the B's have the best chances of knocking off the Rags and or Flyers so that's who I'm pulling for. Not to mention the blood bath that I think will ensue b/w the Bruins and either of remaining detested teams. Somehow I don't expect the refs to take it as easy on Philly by constantly sending the Bruins to the box. The Bruins are one of those teams that you expect to play a physical style and therefore the referees tend to overlook more penalties. I'm not sure why but that's the way it seems to be.

I'm split evenly with the Blues and Preds out West. In the East as long as it is not any of Pitts rivals I don't care, but I could stomach New York or New Jersey. As long as it's not Philly or Washington coming out of the East I'm fine with it.

I'm rooting for the under dog stories in the East though, Florida and Ottawa. I wouldnt mind Boston going back ether but I'm not really cheering for them, I like a lot of their roster, always have, but just don't find myself cheering for the team so much as certain players.

So basically...

1. Blues
2. Preds
3. Florida/Ottawa tie
4. Boston
5. Phoniex/LA

That's where id put my cheering for right now.

I'm firmly seated on the King's wagon. They can ride Quick all the way I reckon.

I'm with Nashville, although I don't dislike any of the remaining Western teams.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Caps do well if it means that folks finally realize that Backstrom is their best player.

Kings. Pretty easy considering they'll be my "home team" soon.

As much as I still hate them...I want nothing more to see Richards and Carter hoist the Cup...preferably as visiting players in Philadelphia.

I actually had a dream of exactly this.

It was hilarious.


And yes, my hatred of the Flyers runs so deeply that I dream about them being humiliated. I should get a prize or something.

Oh and to answer the question, I'm hoping Florida gets past the first round.

If not then Kings & Blues. 1967 till now is a long time for a fan to wait.

I don't particularly care for St. Louis. Mike Richards and Jeff Carter play for Los Angeles. Nashville's okay. It's always nice to root for a team like Phoenix.

A part of me wants to see Martin Brodeur go on a run. But, if Florida were to win the Cup, the irony would be wonderful for the hockey world. I don't like the Rangers or the Flyers. I want Washington to defeat Boston, but go no further than the Eastern Conference Finals. Ottawa is boring.

In a nutshell, I want the winners of the Florida - NJ series and the Nashville - Phoenix series to play each other in the Cup finals.
