besides russia i like finland the most

got respect for sweden and canada (but loosing it after reading posts from arrogant canadiens thinking canada is the best team the world will ever see and forgettin their defeats in oly 06 or whc 08 09 where they had much better teams than this whc)

i love the usa as a country but i would never be able to like their hockey team

czechs sucks too

I like Canada as well but the Scandinavian teams are also pretty likeable. And I'm thankful that Russia brought all their star players to Germany. For me as an European, it was amazing to see Ovechkin/Kovalchuk/Fedorov/... live.

I don't hate a country at all.

Besides Germany, I like Finland the most and I also have a lot of love for Denmark.

There is no team I really dislike or don't respect.

No one.

I do not care how any country does except for Russia and the US. I want them to fail each and every time.

Always Finland.

Don't even really know why. I like the Fins, they love hockey, Koivu was
always one of my favourite players.

I just really want the Finnish hockey fans to be able to clebrate a huge win.

Because if you're home country hasn't success at all, you've got another country to cheer for. You're Canadian, you don't need a 2nd favorite country.

None to be honest. Though I'm not really big on international tournaments besides the WJC.

don't really have a 2nd favorite, just like watching certain players play with others they don't always get a chance to.

For me its Canada all the way. But if I had to say a second fav. it would probably be Sweden. I have a huge respect for most of the countries that represent, however I cannot seem to ever cheer for the states or the russians. To much History I guess. Respect them yes, cheer for them no

Sweden is acutally my #1, Germany near 2nd. I learned to love the Swedish team as a 4 year old, just because of these cool yellow jerseys and the way they battled against the evil red machine (Russians)
Wow, was it easy as a kid to recognice the good and the evil ones

Later I loved the team because of Sundin & Forsberg even when they rarelly could particiate the WC's.

I was going to say Russia, but like the OP, I overreacted to HFBoards posts and lost all respect for them. Poopy-heads!

Well before I found HFBoards the US was always my second favourite team, but all the homers on this forum makes it really hard to like them, or any of the larger nations teams for that matter.

As for teams I don't like, I have an intense dislike for Canada. That is my most disliked team apart from when Sweden play against Finland. Don't mind the Finns at all when they are playing other teams.

If I can't cheer for Canada, I cheer for Latvia, then probably Finland.

Aside from Canada, I love Germany (I have some partial German heritage) and I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Latvia too because I love their crazy-passionate fans.

Apart from Canada, I rooted for Finland because of Teemu but now that he's not there anymore... I don't... I just don't know!

...Probably just the underdogs.

Besides Russia i like US.

The only team i can not stand is Canada. Well, its not even the team i dislike its the fans... The sense of entitlement and arrogance just make me look at Canada in a different way now days.

I like Finland and their style of play, more North American than other European nations. I also root for nations with hockey programs that are developing nicely like Belarus, Denmark etc.

Russia and the USA are Canada's rivals so I dislike them the most. I dislike Russia the most because my girlfriend is from Russia, enough said haha.
