2nd Favourite Team - NorthWest Division

Alright. Poll 1 is still open (St. Loo and Nashville are gaining on Columbus), but let's move to Poll 2.
The Northwest division.
In an effort to find the the HF populice's second favorite team, we're going through each division and doing these polls.
So here's how it works.
Vote for your favourite team, unless, of course, it's actually your favourite team.
So if you're a Montreal fan, pick your favorite Northwest team.
But if you're an Edmonton fan, nu-uh, Vote for your second favorite team. Or, the team you hate the least, other than Edmonton.
Got it? People who violate this rule (Like BlueBleed 44, who voted for, duh, the St. Louis Blues) will be ostracized and may choose to spent their remaining days crawling around in a spider hole near Tikrit to avoid a HF Dumbass Crimes Tribunal.

I voted Edmonton, because my favorite team in the Northwest is the Vancouver Canucks plain and simply because Markus Naslund gets absolutely no respect from the American ****** at ESPN

I'm sorry but I love the Avs... the only time I hate them is when they compete against the Canucks...

But that is just an awesome team, and I love Joe Sakic and Peter Forsberg.

This one is a toughie.
Right away, you can cross of Colorado, because, well, I'm a Wings fan.
But after that, I can't say I seriously dislike any of the other teams.

I'll cross Edmonton off because I hated Gretzky.
And I'll cross Vancouver off because their fans are so obnoxious (though i really like their players).
So it comes down to Calgary and Minnesota.

Calgary was once my 2nd favourite team, when they moved up from Atlanta. (I was a Habs fan as a kid) I liked Kent Nilsson and Lanny McDonald and Hakan Loob and Joe Niewendyk and Theo Fleury and Paul Reinhart.
But seriously, these days I can't even remember who's on the team.

Then again, Minnesota has Lemaire, Gaborik, and, uh, cool, third uniforms.

I vote Calgary.

Hold on. Is Vancouver your favorite team in the Northwest? Or all of hockey?

I believe the only team that's off limits is your one favorite team, not every favorite team in every division.

Vancouver is my favorite in the NW. They're one of the 3 most exciting teams to watch in the NHL because of Naslund and how their defense jumps into the play.

We've got a three way race between Edmonton, Vancouver, and the dreaded Avalanche.

Well...it's simple really...

I'm a HUGE Canucks fan, and therefore, my second favorite team in the NW is OBVIOUSLY....Colorado

Yep, it's true. I like the Avs. Right up there in my top 5 teams that I like.

Since when?

I voted for Calgary but I like Edmonton too. I guess I have a soft spot for Calgary b/c I lived there for two years and also b/c they've only got one Cup compared to Edmonton's (4?).

Easily the Oilers. They're about the only other Western Conference team I can stand.

Just curious but what makes the Oilers so popular?

I say this having never seen Edmonton play.

Oops, I didn't read that I couldn't vote for my favourite team, so I voted for the Flames. Chalk another one up for the Oilers. (hate to say it)
