I'm going with Florida. Too many former Hawks for me not to.

I'm not overly invested in one team now the Hawks are out...but I'll watch the playoffs b/c I like watching hockey.

The teams I would like to go far are Nashville, LA, New York, and Philadelphia. Maybe Boston.

This. I don't really care who wins.. obviously it'd be nice to see Florida go a little deeper here and I watched LA take out Vancouver.. but as far as rooting for a certain team at this point.. it doesn't really matter to me too much.

The Flyers. Hockey needs an offensive team to win it or it will be another year of grab and trap.

Not invested in any team. Not actively cheering against team left. So whoever wins, it will be meh for me

The obstruction that's crept back into the game absolutely needs to be addressed. I'm not saying we need to go back to 05-06 when every little thing was called.. but certainly there is way too much stuff not being called that were penalties last year and moreso the year before.

I'm going to be more of a pick the lesser of 2 evils for each series game right now. I don't like the Bruins, so hopefully the Caps take them out first. I'd prefer the Panthers over the Devils.

Flyers winning it all would be good for the league as it would prove offense is still important. I just hope it's not a team that relies 100% on defense/goaltending like the Coyotes did.

LA for sure. I like Quick, Richards, Kopitar and for some odd reason Mitchell.

I know I'll be fading the Coyotes until they're out (so most likely this series). Preds fan for that series.

Pred's then LA, hate philly's fans too much to root for them, and i hope Tallon and his precious bunch of castaway hawks lose too.

Bitter to the End I Say!

I guess Nashville in the West, and Florida in the East.

I'm surprised at how many people want Nashville to go all the way.

You know, I can't stand the Flyers, but I might be forced to root for them. The last thing we need is one of these defense first, clutching and grabbing teams to win the cup and half the NHL to copy that.

Flyers-Caps
Sens or Panthers, and if they play, Panthers

Kings-Blues
Preds-Yotes - don't care. Would've rooted for the Coyotes since I have family there and wanted them to stay, but can't stand them after that series. But can't see myself really rooting for Nashville either. I hope LA wins the West.

Nashville- Just want them to beat teh yotes in a 4-0 series sweep

Blues- I like what Hitchcock has done with that team, should get the coach of the year award and it would be even better if he could possibly get them a cup.

Kings- Two words. Jonathan Quick.

Bruins- Original Six.

Rooting for the Blues is the equivalent of rooting for Detroit, or worse. My hate for the Blues runs deeper than the Wings. Their fans are more obnoxious, during the mid 90s when the Wings had their rebirth, we were competing with St. Louis for 2nd fiddle. Early 90s you had the St Pats massacre and a bunch of lowlife goons on the Blues. I can't deal with the Blues winning anything ever.

East = Florida, then Ottawa
West = LA, then *gulp* Nashville

Yeah, I don't get how any Hawks fan could cheer for the Blues. They're easily my 2nd most hated team, after Vancouver.

All the teams that have won the Cup so far or the Sens.

Just hope that no Bettman extension team will win it.

I don't join bandwagons. If the Hawks can't win it, though, there are teams I think deserve to win it instead, however. This year, of the teams that are left, the Blues seem most deserving, followed by the Kings and Flyers. Time to end the suffering for a very patient fanbase, kind of like the Rangers in 94.

Bandwagoning was more fun before the Hawks started making the playoffs again. I would just root for whoever played Detroit in the 1st round, and then stuck with them. I was a huge Oilers fan for 1 year, and Ducks fan in another growing up.

Now, watching the rest of the playoffs is just kind of depressing, but I'll still be doing it obviously.
