I'll probably cheer for the Toros, only if one of the Senators ends up playing for them (they drafted Chris Phillips, Peter Schaefer, & Todd Simpson). If not, I probably won't care, and will jump the bandwagon of whichever team is doing the best

I love the Leafs, so I am going with the Toros. I was thinking either Hamilton or Toronto since I live in Ontario, but I think I'll stick with Toronto. Hopefully there's some way we can convince Crosby to come play for us.

The Toronto Toros.

I'm excited to see the team they put together.

If Founder's Franchise goes to Vancouver, I will cheer for them, if not, the Nordiks.

Quebec, because it's good to see the Nordiques back, even if they've spelled their name wrong.

Halifax, because I've always enjoyed my trips to NS.

Founder's franchise, because I like the mystery of it all. "Who will I be cheering for? I don't know! It's all so mysterious!"

None, because the WHA won't start.


But seriously, I guess the Nordiks.

I think the Quebec Nordiks.

I am a Habs fan so I think i'd want to watch another Quebec team. However, I like Michael Ryder so it could be Hamilton if they sign him.

Halifax cause they're givin Sisca (and to a lesser extent Tenute) the chance that no NHL team will, if WHA actually plays watch how #97 plays, no one will pick him casue he's a small guy but he's got an amazing shot, and he's fast, i can't wait to see what he can do on a slightly higher level than the ohl GO ICE... um... BREAKERS?

It's hard for me to decide who I would root for since their isn't any team near Boston in the league. So, I guess I'll root for Toronto since they picked Thornton in their Free Agent draft.

WORKS FOR ME! Also, they brought back the name Nordiques with an alternate spelling. Obviously this organization has some serious "cohanas." Put me down as a Quebec fan.
