Sharks & Wild because we basically have half of each other's team, and Sharks/Kings were cool even when we played in the playoffs. No hate, just dance gifs.

Go read the GDTs between Ottawa and Boston. It reeks of Canadian niceness from both sides.

I truly wonder if it would be as civil if the Sens were to start a run on the Bruins.

I've always liked Chicago and Ottawa. The teams and their fans. Would that survive a playoff series? Probably not...but for now.

I actually like a ton of Western teams, other than Vancouver.

I always wish the best for a large portion of the Western teams. I like Anaheim, LA, Chicago, Minnesota, Columbus, Detroit, St Louis. I don't really have a problem with any fans from those teams, and I'd love to see them all succeed.

Out of the East, I really like Pittsburgh fans. Leaf/Penguins games are usually entertaining and the fans are pretty respectful. I like some of the Rangers fans too, they're usually pretty objective and cool from what I can see. NJ fans are nice too. Limited experience with Washington fans but I assume they're alright.

A case could be made for the Sharks and Wings because of the quality of play it brings out in both teams. And for that matter the Hawks, but **** the Hawks.

I'd also like to mention that after getting past the WCE days where the Avs would destroy us, I don't mind them at all. This probably is due to having a few good friends who are Avs fans, and because the Canucks could ice an AHL team and still somehow best the Avs of late.

This Leafs fan loves the Ducks, Preds, Coyotes and Flyers fan base.

I wonder, when the Habs and Canucks fans say 'we've got your back' does that mean they'll turtle together?

And yes, the media playing favourites with the Leafs does cause a lot of people to hate them.
No, they shouldn't, and I'm as critical of this as anybody. Unless you want to pay higher taxes one of CBC's priorities has to be making money.

That's all well and good. The Jets or the Sens aren't owed the primetime broadcast. Where CBC angers a lot of people is buying exclusive rights to all Canadian games on Saturday nights but relegating Jets and Sens games to narrow local markets. TSN would be happy to air those games. It's coercive because they're not just showing the Leafs --they're buying exclusive rights and only showing the Leafs. Meaning unless you live in those cities, have Center Ice, or watch it online, they're intentionally trying to limit your options. Showing the Leafs doesn't have to be at the expense of other games on TV on Saturday nights, but they want it to be. That's the issue.

It does add to a lot of Canadians disliking the Leafs. Especially in years(and there have been many in the past decade) when the Leafs are out of it down the stretch and yet CBC still insists on showing them while the Habs or Sens are in competitive playoff races.

Its days are numbered anyway now that CBC's two chief competitors share ownership over the MLSE.

Canucks and Sabres fans had/have mutual respect. It has lessened a bit lately because of the Hodgson/Kassian trade though. Being both expansion brethren and yet on opposite sides of the continent helps.

Not true you hate Leaf fans and we hate you. Most Leaf fans I know respect Boston, the Kessel trade caused some bad blood.

Leafs and Bruins both play physical hockey when they are competitive. Leafs in 90s early 00s and current Bruins were very similar.

I would want Boston to win again if the Leafs are out.

As an Oiler fan, I don't feel a rapport with any other team.
I don't hate all teams, but I don't see myself connecting and getting along with any specifically.

Maybe Islander fans, since we share so many similarities. (jersey colors, good team 80s, crappy owner, crappy building, crappy team)

For some reason as a Sharks fan I have always felt like Buffalo was very similar to the Sharks, and always liked them. May have something to do with them getting screwed over by Dallas and my hatred for the Stars in the mid/late 90's.

Saw the Wild have been mentioned by others as well because of how trade happy our two teams have been lately.

Chicago/Vancouver isn't that bad amongst the regulars here. We can have fun with it and talk honestly about the series. I've always noticed this. Sure, there are a lot of people on both sides that can't get past the rivalry enough to have those conversations but I do notice them and the respect the Nucks fans have for the Hawks.

I've found Pittsburgh and Buffalo fans to be pretty respective to each other. They both come from small, blue collar industrial cities and it helps they're from different divisions.

They even let Kasparaitis throw a puck into the stands at the end of game 7 in 2001 and didn't call a delay of game.

When Giguere was traded to the Leafs, a bunch of Ducks fans rooted for them. Since then, it's turned into more of a "take 'em or leave 'em" attitude. But I guess there's still some alliance due to the Burke and Carlyle connection.
