I agree with you for the most part. With the exception that I DO NOT like phoenix one bit. I detest the 'yotes. And Im pulling for TB over PIT. I dont like the penguins.
But other than that: go hawks, Preds, Wings, Caps, Sabres, and Boston.
Hawks over Canucks. Nucks fans are the cockiest most annoying fanbase on the boards, although Ducks and Leafs fans do give them a run for their money. Seems like most Canucks fans expect to win the cup this year, like its no big deal. Oh and I hate Samuelsson.
Coyotes over Red Wings. **** the Wings. Hate them as much as Ducks.
Predators over Ducks. **** the Ducks. **** the Ducks.
Capitals over Rangers. Don't care about the Rangers, don't mind the Capitals. I actually like watching this series but don't care much about either team. My dislike of Avery is cancelled out by Gaborik being one of my favorite players.
Sabres over Flyers. Love the way Buffalo plays, fast transition hockey always entertaining and one of my favorite teams in the East.
Bruins over Canadians. Chara is one of my favorite players and love the team Boston has assembled. Kinda dont really care about the Canadians. Dislike Price alot.
Penguins over Lightning. Like both teams but Penguins are my favorite team in the East and **** Downie.
Canucks vs Hawks = the lesser of two evils. hate the canucks wayyyy more than the hawks, though the bandwagoning on the hawks this year is incredibly annoying, though not really their fault.
Redwings vs Coyotes = sort of an underdog/pacific division pride/i hate the red wings thing with this one
Ducks vs Preds = as a kings fan?
Caps vs Rangers = ever since ovechkin made those comments last year about not adjusting his play to not seriously injure players, i've hated him. also hate the "great 8" thing. too close to the great one. i also love lundqvist for an unknown reason. but all that being said, i'm definitely not going to lose sleep over the result of this series either way.
Boston vs Canadians = also rooting for timmy, and the habs don't need another championship in my opinion
Penguins vs Tampa = i'd also like to see the penguins be able to do it with out sid and malkin. a good friend is also a pens fan so i sort of root along with him when they're not playing the kings. but i don't dislike either team and i'd be happy to see either of them win.
Philly vs Sabres = i'd love to see miller get a chance at the cup. don't like richards or pronger, either.
Nucks (I want a shot at a rematch)
Wings (I want a shot at a rematch)
Preds (I hate the *mighty* Los Angeles Ducks of Anaheim)
Caps (Ove is just too pretty to watch)
B's (In Canada you are either a Hab fan or not and I hate that type of thinking, go B's)
Pens (Syd the kid deserves his shot at the cup again)
Sabres (if they can make the finals maybe DL will stop trying to model us after the flea's)
