I like the LA Kings, but... I really don't like LA.

You'd think Vancouver right, but although I've been a Canucks fan since I can remember, I can't stand Vancouver the city, just a miserable place.

I love Vancouver, the city.

The team? I have a few lower than them on my list.

Pittsburgh is a cute little town. Loved it for 6 years, met 2 or 3 of the most beautiful women I've ever seen. But, y'know, a born and raised Philly Flyer.

Reversed for me. I have a soft spot for the Kings (except for Carter, and long before "#Lumbus" became a thing), but I utterly cannot stand LA. A large part of that is due to the area's history - particularly the California Water Wars.

A somewhat milder version of that applies to the Coyotes as well.

Why yes, I do live in relatively close proximity to the Great Lakes; why do you ask?

Boston, there's no way anyone can really hate the city, it's a historical treasure. But man do I hate that team lol

HAH, no, it doesn't work that way. If anything, you'll like the Leafs even less when you have to listen to conversations about them everywhere you go. The sheer amount of media coverage is staggering, and obviously any hometown is going to be full of homerism. It's awful as a not-Leafs fan.

What??? TSN/Sportsnet are a bunch of homers??? Next you`ll try and convince me RDS is completely biased towards the Habs


Team I despise?? Not close, Habs, city I love is Montreal, a city with so much diversity and just a great place to have fun

Born and raised in Ottawa, nice city to look at but man, I`ve spent summers there when I`ve tried to find even the quietest of pulses for the city.....it`s why they have Hull accross the bridge......although I guess it`s called something else now

I've heard great comments about Boston and I hope to visit some time, but hate the Bruins.Toronto is nice as well, especially the water front.

I live in Toronto, its okay...I don't like the team.

If only there was a Hawaii hockey team, would make this easier. Well for the thread purpose, I would say Florida.

Been to Boston. Lovely city, so much history and culture and personality. Love the people, too. Hospitable and respectful. And in a way, they kind of befit the culture of their team.
Bearing that in mind, I don't know how they tolerate having a guy like Marchand on their team, but I guess that's besides the point I guess

As a Wings fan Chicago is only about a 3.5 hour drive. I absolutely love Chicago but obviously can't stand the Hawks..

Don't really hate the Leafs but I love Toronto.

Toronto, even though I live here. It just got too disappointing in the Raycroft/Giguere/Toskala era.

Vancouver tops the list for me. Such an awesome city, but just can't stand the team.

Montreal is a close second.
