Who are you rooting for???

so what team are you hoping to win these series out of the West...and why??

Anaheim vs Detroit

St Louis vs Los Angeles

Vancouver vs San Jose

are you hoping for a certain team to win so it will be easier for the Hawks to move on, or do you have serious hatred for a team and just don't want them to win??

I'm rooting for the Sharks, because **** Vancouver.

I'm torn on the other side. Hate DET and STL but would rather play either over ANA or LA. So I'm just hoping the 4 teams destroy themselves together over 14 grueling games.

Don't care, the only other team in the NHL I have a rooting interest in is Toronto, other then that I am rooting for 7 game series with many injuries.

Pretty much agree with the Toronto thing there. I will be watching those games for sure!

Anaheim

We seem to have rivalry between St Louis, Detroit & Vancouver.

I want to face the Ducks in the Western final. It would be good for them as they climb back into being a premier team. Resigning Getzslaf & Perry was their all in move. I respect the organization for rewarding their own guys.

They have played us well... the only team to have a winning record against us this season.. granted Hossa & Sharp were out the last two games.

I think we match up well against them, and would not overlook them as they are the 2nd seed. I wouldn't mind a number 1 v 2 matchup. It happens in many sports, but more rare in the NHL.

I would want to face the Ducks in the Western Conference final.

For me, it's more about rooting against teams I want to lose (than actually cheering for a team)...the only other team I'm actively cheering for with good intentions is the Leafs.

For the matchups OP listed, I want detroit, vancouver, and st. louis to lose. I'm not really giving a lot of consideration to the fact the winners might represent tougher competition.

Seems most of us are rooting for the Leafs, I am guessing it's because the teams have similar histories and both hate the Red Wings?

I am partly because of that but more so I lived in Mississauga for 5 years.

I want to see Detroit beat the Ducks. If like to be the ones to send Detroit packing. I also think that's a good matchup for us, though I'm not really scared of the Ducks either.

I want the Kings to beat the Blues because St. Louis is the only team I'm afraid to play, especially after last nights game. They are out for blood, and I bet we would lose a couple guys to injury.

I want to see the Sharks beat the Canucks because **** the Nucks, nuff said.

Im rooting for all the above series to go 7 games so whos ever behind Id be rooting for. Best match up for the Hawks in the West finals would probably be the Sharks but its unlikely they make it.

It's extremely unlikely we would play the Sharks in the West finals just because that would mean the Sharks and Wings need to win round 1, then we gotta beat the Wings and the Sharks gotta beat the Blues/Kings. I'd love for it to turn out like that though!

Detroit/St. Louis/San Jose

Main concern is Detroit or San Jose winning. Ideally, St. Louis would advance, play Vancouver, kick the **** of them but lose, then we face Vancouver in the conference finals.

Agree with this.

I think I'd rather play Detroit over Anaheim, but that's really a toss-up. I'd also rather play St Louis. San Jose without a doubt.

This and every year I root for the Original Six teams to go far into the depths of the NHL Playoffs.

I know there has to be a winner, but after this season it looks as though the West will have only the Hawks, and the East will have 5 of the original 6. Such a shame.

So now every year I will root for a Blackhawks vs. (insert Original Six team here),
Stanley Cup Final.

Rooting for Detroit because we need to get that monkey off our backs by beating them. We haven't won a series against them since 92. Even the Cup victory felt cheapened because we didn't have to go through them. Plus we suck against the mighty Ducks this year.

Also rooting for my local KINGS. Hawks get my loyalty but if these teams play eachother then I can go to a game.

After Perry's assassination attempt on Howard, I've become a dedicated Wings fan for that series ONLY.

I thought Carlyle went to Toronto.

I think we can all get over this "I don't wanna root for Detroit/st. Louis" stuff. If it gives the hawks a better chance to win the cup then ill root for anybody

Yeah, it would only hurt those teams and their fans more to advance and not go all the way than just lose in the first round and move on.

I like our chances against the Wings more than against the Blues, Sharks or Kings

St Louis
Anaheim
San Jose

I hate the Wings and I hate the Nucks so nothing would please me more than seeing them get bounced in round 1...

As for the Blues, well though a rival, I really don't want to see LA repeat so I am hoping the Blues beat them in round 1
