Oilers (Wanted the team that beat us in the playoff race to win)
Sens (Wanted a Euro Captain to win the cup)
Detroit (Caps fan, Disliked Penguins)
Detroit (See above)
Chicago (Despite being a Canucks fan I have liked the Hawks since Kane and Toews came into the league. Getting to chat with Duncan Keith a few times also helps.
'06 Oilers - Still disappointing they lost. What a poor ending to a magical run.
'07 Ducks - For Teemu
'08 Wings - Didn't really care either way though.
'09 Pens - Just like seeing different winners. Didn't really care too much again though.
'10 Chicago - Hate Philly
2006-Either team was fine with me
2007-I wished for a parallel universe where neither team made it since I hated them both so much. After a careful, lengthy deliberation, I decided I hated the Ducks less.
2009-Pittsburgh (I like to see a different winner every year)
2005-2006 Carolina Hurricanes/Edmonton Oilers: Hurricanes. Just couldn't bring myself to cheer for the Oilers.
2006-2007 Anaheim Ducks/Ottawa Senators: Senators. Ottawa is one of my favourite teams.
2007-2008 Detroit Red Wings/Pittsburgh Penguins: Didn't care. Just wanted to see good hockey.
2008-2009 Detroit Red Wings/Pittsburgh Penguins: ^
2009-2010 Chicago Blackhawks/Philadelphia Flyers: ^
2005-2006 Edmonton Oilers: Oilers are a Canadian team and I wanted them to bring back the cup in Canada. Plus, the Canes eliminated my Habs.
2006-2007 Anaheim Ducks: Although Sens are a Canadian team, at the time, I hated them with passion. Also, Niedermayer was one of my favorite player.
2007-2008 Detroit Red Wings: I simply hate the Pens.
2008-2009 Detroit Red Wings: See above.
2009-2010 Philadelphia Flyers: Giroux is my favorite player in the league, so that was obvious. However, I didn't mind who would win since I liked the Hawks for a reason some Chicago fans would kill me... Huet was one of my favorite goaltender.
06 - Canes = I have always like the Canes and there fans
07 - = I was very uninterested in the final to be honest as I didn't care either way really
08 - Wings = Lesser of 2 evils
09 - Wings = Lesser of 2 evils + wanted to see Hossa get cup
10 - Hawks
'05-'06: Oilers, because I liked the team they had together, I liked their style of play and it was fun watching them during their playoff run that year.
'06-'07: Ducks, because I do not like the Senators and I knew the Ducks would win anyway, plus I wanted to see Teemu raise the Cup.
'07-'08: Red Wings, because I really like their team (probably my 'second favourite') and also happen to really dislike the Penguins.
'08-'09: same as above.
'09-'10: Flyers, for the same reasons I cheered for the Oilers in '05-'06. It was fun watching the Blackhawks too, though, so it was more or less a win-win final for me.
