Who did you root for in the past 5 SCFs?

It's playoff time so I started thinking who I rooted for when the SCF came along over the past 5 years since the lockout. Who did you root for in each series and why?

2005-2006 Carolina Hurricanes/Edmonton Oilers: Oilers since the Canes eliminated my team.
2006-2007 Anaheim Ducks/Ottawa Senators: Ducks since the Sens eliminated my team and Ottawa has always been one of my least liked teams.
2007-2008 Detroit Red Wings/Pittsburgh Penguins: Penguins, since Hossa was there and I'm a huge Marian Hossa fan.
2008-2009 Detroit Red Wings/Pittsburgh Penguins: Red Wings, for obvious reasons.
2009-2010 Chicago Blackhawks/Philadelphia Flyers: Blackhawks since they're my second team.

2005-2006 Carolina Hurricanes/Edmonton Oilers: Oilers because they are Canadian.
2006-2007 Anaheim Ducks/Ottawa Senators: Sens because... they are Canadian
2007-2008 Detroit Red Wings/Pittsburgh Penguins: Penguins because I hated Wings fans at this time.
2008-2009 Detroit Red Wings/Pittsburgh Penguins: Red Wings... I hated Pens fans :S
2009-2010 Chicago Blackhawks/Philadelphia Flyers: Hawks because the Flyers eliminated my team and the Hawks are probably my 3rd or 2nd team.

05-06 Canes, cuz I like smaller market teams.
06-07 Ducks. See above. And because of pacific division.
07-08 Penguins. Hate the Red Wings. And my friend is a Wings fan.
08-09 ^
09-10 Hawks. My Uncle said he would buy me a bunch of Hawks crap if they won.

05-06 Oilers : They are Canadian and the Canes beat my Habs
06-07 Sens (mostly) : They are Canadian, but I really didn't care much (as I've always found the Sens to be annoying)
07-08 Red Wings : I love watching them, and never liked the Pens much.
08-09 Red Wings : Ditto
09-10 Blackhawks : they were a far better team and more enjoyable to root for. I also hated the Flyers since they beat the Habs.

2005-2006 Oilers - Canadian team. great fans, gritty underdog
2006-2007 Sens - my team
2007-2008 Pens - like the Wings too, but wanted a new team to win
2008-2009 Pens - same, plus like Crosby
2009-2010 Hawks - Chicago fans deserved it after what they had been through, like Toews and Kane

06: Oilers, for some strange reason..
07: Sens cause I really hated Anaheim at the time, not so much anymore though.
08: Penguins just cause.
09: Penguins just cause, plus I didn't want a repeat.
10: Blackhawks: No reason, just did.

2-3 but only one really mattered

I don't cheer for anybody other than the oilers. I always find it weird that people need to find a bandwagon team to cheer for.

Oh yeah I did cheer for Detroit the first year because they were my favourite team(or one of them) for a while but then after they got back the next year I didn't really care as much

Edmonton
Anaheim
(no one) - just wanted a good series for the NHL to showcase
(no one) - see above
Chicago

This year, hopefully both teams in the finals can be ones i'll be happy with winning, aka not Detroit (nothing against them, tho), Vancouver, Pittsburgh/Philadelphia/Rangers (obvious reasons)

Carolina (From Rod Brind'Amour's hometown of Campbell River, BC.)
Ottawa (Canada)
No preference in 2008 and 2009
Flyers (Do I have to explain why?)

2006: Hurricanes. Should be obvious. If not, look at my avatar.
2007: Mostly indifferent, but leaning towards sens. Happy enough to see the Ducks take it.
2008: Pens. Fun team to watch, and I like seeing Crosby succeed just to spite the haters.
2009: Pens. See above, plus share the wealth motive.
2010: Blackhawks. My dad grew up in Chicago watching the Hull/Mikita years. Easy choice to make. Plus, I was in Chicago during game 1, and that atmosphere was hard to not get caught up in.

Oilers- one of the most exciting playoff runs I have ever seen
Ducks- Can't stand the Sens
Penguins- Tired of Red Wings always doing well, like Pens young roster
Penguins-" "
Neutral- like both teams, maybe a cheered a little bit for the Hawks just because I love the roster they put together and knew this was their best chance at winning

Edmonton Oilers- Always loved the underdogs, plus I liked Canadian teams at the time.
Ottawa Senators- Felt they were the Dallas Mavericks of the NHL and were a Canadian team.
Pittsburgh Penguins- Didn't want the Wings to win
Detroit Red Wings- Wanted Hossa to get a cup.
Chicago Blackhawks- Obvious
