But insofar as I would keep watching hockey (and I would), the Caps, because I lived in DC for three years. It's just, I'd watch the playoffs and a game every other week, whereas I watch a Flyers game every other day.

Have always had a soft spot for the Avs. My name is Leif, so maybe the Leafs?

Probably the Avs. Forsberg was always my favorite player growing up and they had a bunch of guys (Sakic, for example) that were easy to like.

Capitals would be a team to pick just to be entertained, and they have a few likable players too.

My job requires me to spend a lot of time in Orange County. I'm probably in Anaheim 100 days out of the year, so naturally. Love Bobby Ryan. When all the rumors were floating about a while ago about Ryan potentially making his way to Philly, I damn near **** myself.

I don't think I could bring myself to cheer for another team, but I'd still gladly watch the game (at any level).

Edmonton. During the 90's when they had Grier, Carter and Laraque is what got me into playing hockey; of course with them being on the west coast made/makes it brutal to watch them.

geography would dictate the Caps, but i doubt id ever be as attached to them as i am the flyers. i'd likely care more about individual players, guys like giroux, richards, gage, carter, lappy. pretty much the whole bunch from the playoff run.

I think the avs are the most loved team around the boards. Kinda funny actually, no one apart from detroit hates them for obvious reasons.

I would follow the avs, always been a team i have watched closely since picking the flyers.

Roy used to be one of my faves which is why I followed Colorado when I was younger. Surprised how many Flyers fans also like them.

Finally figured out my answer to this one: RPI. Probably wouldn't be invested in the pro game at all anymore.

Probably LA. They've been (a distant) second to philly since Deadmarsh was traded there. Plus, Hanzus! Say No Mwah.

Probably the Nucks after that, as my "home team" sort of. Mostly I'd just die inside if the Flyers disbanded.

Lol I covered the Flames briefly and I always said that if I were looking for a team even MORE FRUSTRATING than the Flyers, I would look to them. The year they had last year would have been just nauseating and infuriating to watch without a neutral eye.

I'm originally from North Jersey......

sorry, but I have to say I'd back the Rangers.

I'm also a Yankee's and NY Giants fan.

But I love the Flyers!!
