Try and put aside your Hometown team/favourite team to get rid of bias.

If you were the best player in the world with the ability to lead any team to the Stanley Cup who would you choose to play for?

I think if you brought a cup to Toronto you would be treated like a god, especially with this cup drought they are in. T.O. is my pick.

Iíll choose Phoenix for the novelty of it.

Iíll choose Montreal as a strong second as the Habs are the apex of overall hockey greatness.

Ignoring my favorite team(s), I'd choose Columbus. Loyal fanbase that has endured enough with incompetent management.

Vancouver fans have suffered the most. It's their turn.

Toronto fans have suffered more than Canucks fans in my opinion. At least Vancouver has had a good team recently. They have also been to the finals the year before last. When is the last time TO has gone to the finals? 1967, the Canucks have been to the finals 3 times since then.

San Jose, but if I had to pick some other city I'd go Buffalo. They need to win some sort of championship. And the Bills aren't gonna get it done in awhile.

They can keep suffering, I'd say Minnesota.

If not Ottawa then Winnipeg. That city has a great fanbase, they'd go nuts over a Cup win.

Winnipeg or toronto. Both have great fans and deserve a cup. Also it will shut up the "win one for canada" people.

If I have to bypass St. Louis, I'd say the Islanders. Such a historic franchise that's in dire need of a boost.

Buffalo ANIEC in my mind.

I've seen my teams win 3 cups and two Super Bowls and while it doesn't change your life, it has fun memories tied to it forever.

I can't imagine the agony of watching my team lose four straight SBs and then the whole Brett Hull thing.

The loyal fans in Buffalo deserve to see a championship in a SB or SC.

I'm still trying to figure out what team you could be. I've eliminated Avs and Bruins. Patriots have won more than two so I have no idea.

I would say Edmonton should win. It's been so long since they were relevant past March.

San Jose, Vancouver, Buffalo or Washington ... they are overdue and would remember me forever for having helped do so!
