Playoff Bandwagon

[/url]

It's that time of year again.

Yep, it's time to decide who you're going to root for in the playoffs!

Be like me and root for your hometown team? Do you have another team in mind you'd like to see hoist the cup? Share here!

Here's my pick:

Really don't care who wins... Phoenix because they were in the same position we are in and they turned it around. Now I hope they win the cup so all the idiots that take shots at southern hockey teams can shut up.

Preds. Southern Hockey baby. I'd even venture up there to wave some Fang Fingers if I had a ticket.

And anyone who plays Pittsboogars.

And anyone who plays the Crapitals.

Caps I guess in the East, might start rooting for the sens.


in the west I'm all about my avs. i'll also root for the preds and yotes as long as there aren't matched up against the avs.

My sort of other team is Chicago, but I'm pulling for Nashville, San Jose and Phoenix b/c I feel for their fan bases.

Chicago and Washington, can't believe they are both so amazing this season. Outside of Atlanta and St Louis all of my teams are dominating right now.

Sorry, I can not rout for a NHL team not named the Thrashers. It is just not in me.

I've got a lot of history with my Red Wings, so it's undeniable for me to root for them. Especially given the bad luck they had this season with injuries, and how they've bounced back in a major way since the Olympics.

I like a lot of selections out of the west that some of you have made -- particularly Nashville and Phoenix. I actually hope those two face each other, so I can have a series of intense games I can watch that wouldn't involve me being disappointed at the end. I really can't get behind any other team out of the east, though.

The Pens and Caps have to be the favorite from the East. That's good news for Buffalo and New Jersey since the favorites are usually gone in the first couple of rounds. I'd be happy with either the Sabres or El Diablo representing the EC.

The wild West is up for grabs. Nobody expects San Jose to re-write their playoff history so look out. Vancouver could be very tough and LA and Phoenix might have some surprises for everyone. Naturally, I'll be rootin' for the Hawks.

A Chicago/Buffalo final would be alright with me.

Just seems kinda weird to hop to another bandwagon, but wouldn't mind some surprises from the underdogs and teams that havent had that much earlier success.

It does, in a way, so I understand the reluctance to say "I'm cheering on ________ for the playoffs." You just also have to remember that the Thrashers fanbase are from all over the country (and, really, the world). I'm from Detroit, as evidenced above, and there's a large number of people here with me. There's also a large number of people here from Buffalo, Pittsburgh, and New York. Many of us still follow our teams from back home. So when it's that time of year again, we jump on the playoff bandwagon of our favorites from another city.

Hope the WEST wins the cup. Not Chicago though. SJ because there fans deserve it more. or Phoenix.

Don't want to see WSH win it because they are over rated and don't deserve it.
