Favorite second team

I was reading on the main board a thread about which country do you cheer for once yours is eliminated and I was wondering which team (if any) our fanbase likes to cheer for as a second favorite team. I've kind of noticed that some fanbases have tendencies to like a common team and I was simply wondering if there is such a thing for us!

So, do you have a second favorite team? For me, I would say Winnipeg Jets. Why? I don't even know I just wish them the best especially for their fans who got their team back and they are a hard working team every night. I like hard working teams.

I had also a soft spot for Columbus, just because poor them.

Detroit Red Wings, great team, great organization, great drafts, etc. I also have a man crush for Pavel Datsyuk. It will be fun to watch them a lot this year!

I also need to go with the Wings. I'm anxious to see how they will do in a very tough division!

Back in the Houlian Dark Ages, the Dallas Stars had a team any Habs fan could love and I liked them for awhile.

I bandwagonned the Panthers in 1996.

But I can't say I have one team that I can say is ALWAYS my second favourite. I'm too much of an Habs fan to root for anyone else.

But I appreciate how organizations like Detroit and Chicago are ran, they're winners.

I have a good friend who is really into the Sharks so I watch them a lot these days and have gotten into them. Used to care about the Canucks a lot living in Vancouver all these years but haven't cared about them for a long time, probably since around '05. Still see them in the background a bunch though.

Gotta be a Canadian team. Oilers and Jets since I was a kid in the 80s.

Whoever is playing the Bruins is always my second favorite team.

After that I tend to cheer for Nashville (love the mustard yellow 3rd jerseys), Winnipeg (have to support them after their return), Edmonton and Vancouver (mostly because their fanbase hates the Bruins as much as we do, also they're pretty fun to watch.)

Hamilton Bulldogs. Huge, huge dogs fan (though last year was painful to watch).

Go Dogs!

Hawks...Fun team to watch... Wish we had players like Toews, Kane and Sharp! It use to be Oilers and before that the Jets.. My uncle lives in Winnipeg and I went to see them a few times in the Old Peg Arena! I tried loving the Jets again but I don't really like any of their players right now!

Devils, I grew up idolizing Brodeur and watching him play gave me a passion for goaltending. I've also become somewhat of a Hawks bandwagoner over the last couple of seasons.

Detroit and Columbus but that'll surely change due to the realignment.
