Jackets. Everyone is all over Steve Mason's penor (even though Rinne has been arguably as good as Mason).

Florida will be my second choice if they squeeze in the playoffs.

Flame war in 5...4....3...

Anyway, the Caps have by far the most exciting player in the world and it's taken them until this year to break out of the bottom seven in attendance. That's the biggest bandwagon, IMO.

The worst bandwagon, however, is definitely in Pittsburgh. The amount of idiots around here that came out of the woodwork during the playoffs last year is sickening, and they pretend to know the game when they can't name a single Penguin other than Crosby and Fleury.

Penguins and Blackhawks.

Only teams that are shoved down the throat of people by the NHL.

Blackhawks. You don't go from the bottom to tops in attendance in the span of two years with out some major bandwagon going on.

There is going to be three sets of these. so don't worry all the other teams that you've mentioned will be on the next two.

I'm going to nominate my B's. The last 10 years I have been a complete outcast because I love the B's first and all the other teams are on the back burner. It was that way no matter what group of people I was around. Now at least a few people a week mention the B's to me.

They did add some serious young talent so I think that would have an effect in any city. But it's still annoying to those that were already fans.

The Ducks and its not even close.

It was disgusting in LA during the Ducks cup run. Some how your neighbor who never ever watches hockey was sporting a Giguere jersey.

ABC news.... "getting giggy with it" WOW!!!!!

So glad its over.

Hockey was completely dropped in Vancouver after Linden/McLean/Bure/Adams were traded away. Then the WCE emerged and everyone hopped back on.

I say either Chicago or Montreal. Sure Chicago had the owner problems but in two years to have a flip in attendance like they have, hmmm (although I am extremely happy for them). I used to always cheer Montreal because they were always an underdog (I started being a hockey fan in the late 90's). However, last year when they overachieved big time, suddenly everyone around town was a fan. There has always been a lot of fans but until last year, the maple leaf fans easily outnumbered them, suddenly its not the case. They became overrated and I am glad to see them come back down to earth where I will once again be able to cheer them as an underdog next year.

The Canucks have a good size bandwagon mainly because everyone is so damn quick to jump off of it. They slowly hop on and begin trusting the team and suddenly one bad game and they are finsihed until the next round of success. It seems like ppl are too afraid to get close with the team due to the historic lack of success and take the first opportunity to push the team away. It is my belief that the fanbase will loosen the knickers a bit once this team finally delivers.

B.T.W: I made a bet at work with a guy that the Canucks would go 22-7-5 to get to 100 points in the last 34 games of the season. This was after I think the 7th loss in a row on home ice. I just wanted to give myself the pat on the back for that one. looks like it will be about 24-8-2. lol (I've been wanting to say that to someone for a while now, kind of random I know)
