Who should My #1 team be?

Ok so heres the deal, I'm a fairly new hockey fan. Have only been watching seriously for a couple years, because none of my family or friends are interested in hockey. I was born in Vancouver, partially raised in Toronto, and now live in St.Louis. Since starting to watch hockey I haven't really had a number one team. I've always felt a hometown pride in the Canucks, but also love the history and tradition of the Maple Leafs. I have casually been a fan of both but now feel a need to devote myself to one team since I can't really go on being a big fan of two teams forever(or can I?). I know I will always cheer for both but I need to choose one as my #1 team. So who do you think I should choose and why?


PS: And I am most probably moving to Vancouver next year so take that into consideration.

If you are moving to Vancouver, be a Canucks fan.
That way you won't be annoyed by them. No offense to Nucks fans but the majority of you guys are annoying! I know I live in Vancouver, so most of my good friends are Nucks fans. Doesn't work out so well when you are an Avs fan.

Conclusion: Canucks

I'd say Vancouver just because I don't like the leafs at all...

Also Vancouver used to be my 2nd favorite team which is why I said them.

being a fan of both is totally out of the question and I would deffinatly pick the nucks b/c the leasf are just awful and if you're moving there next year you won't make too many friends if you're a leafs fan haah

I'm a fan of my dad's team (Blues) and my home team (Lightning).

You can be a fan of both teams, although I suggest you start to watch the Blues seeing that you live in St. Louis.

ok, if you are a leafs fan, the majority of the leagues fans wont like you and if you are a vancouver fan, you will have to stand up for luongo and his huge pads.

just being blunt

I voted Vancouver but I personally don't know how anyone could be a fan of either team, especially Toronto. If I were you I would start watching other teams. Vancouver and Toronto hockey is very boring to watch.

Neither. Just go with the Blues, they have a brighter future than the other two.

Neither? Being in Calgary these are 2 of my most hated teams.

If you are going to be in Vancouver for a while though I've always found it's best to be a fan of the local team. Especially if you are in Canada and your other team is the Leafs. Trust me, you will take a lot of **** walking around anywhere but southern Ontario being a Leafs fan.

Part of the gig.

Be a fan of the team that makes your heart skip a beat whenever they have a scoring chance.

Yeah, I guess if I'm moving to vancouver the smart thing to do would be pick the 'nucks.I havent been to happy with the leafs this past offseason anway. I still fail to see how getting rid of every player with an ounce of talent and bringing in a bunch of 3rd line grinders and a dude named finger constitutes a rebuild. But on the other hand the 'nucks new jerseys do kinda suck....anyway in the back of my mind I know I will always be cheering for both teams but will be more a canucks fan since I will be living in vancouver without knowing anybody and I dont want everybody to hate me

And to the suggestions of cheering for the sens.. part of the reason I want to stay a leafs fan is so I have a good reason to hate the sens
