    This was in another thread and I thought it was a good convo and would not mind seeing it continued. I'll start her off.
    1. Avs (duh lol)
    2. Bruins
    3. Blue Jackets
    4. Panthers
    5. Lightning
    But really 3, 4, and 5 are all interchangeable
    6. Sabres
    29. Preds
    30. Red Wings
    31. Wild

    Avs and Caps are the only teams I actually care about. Even then it’s really only the Avs I follow legitimately. I was born in DC and Ovi’s my favorite player so I’ve always rooted for the caps in the playoffs since I couldn’t root for the Avs lol.

    Avs


    Sharks

    Sabres

    Habs/Capitals

    Will probably root for Seattle once they get a team too.

    1. Avs
    2. Habs (my Dad & Grandpa's team)
    3. Leafs (my hometown team)
    4. Arizona (I love underdogs)
    ...
    29. Nashville (they were top 5 for a while, but I hate Subban)
    30. Minnesota (**** those guys)
    31. Vancouver (I always hated the way they played when they shared a division with the Avs, I don't particularly like people from BC, I think their name and logo are dumb, I never liked the Sedins, I don't like their broadast team, I don't like their time zone for games, etc...)

    I'd also say I have a fondness for Calgary, Washington, San Jose, and Dallas, and have a vague dislike of LA, the Rangers, and (until this season) Ottawa. Oh and I hate Boston when Montreal is their opponent.

    Edit: I forgot about the Wild, which is great because it's what I aim to do.

    His location is very clearly stated as "Not Vancouver" so I don't know what you're talking about :sarcasm:

    I knew there was a reason I don't like you ;)

    Side note: This is a great thread for starting random feuds with people over teams they kind of cheer for.

    I dunno, obviously Avs are #1 but beyond that I'm kind of a hockey ****e. I vowed after that disastrous, soul-draining 2016-17 season I'd never let Colorado ruin a hockey reason for me, so I'm kind of a hockey fan first, Avs fan second. I really don't care where good hockey comes from (though I'd prefer it not come from Minnesota).

    I jumped on the Rangers bandwagon at the worst possible time, when they were an old, slow, expensive team and they were too scared to tell 90-year-old Mark Messier he needed to retire. I think they're still my #2 team, but their stupidity as a franchise is really starting to wear thin. I already don't like David Quinn as an NHL coach.

    I really, really loved those Stars teams when Seguin first showed up. So frustrating to see them pretty much ruin it since then with a bunch of old, slow bodies in the lineup and that dumb panic move to hire Hitchcock.

    And believe it or not I have a whole lot of friends in Vancouver so I kinda/sorta follow the Canucks. Now THERE is one frustrating franchise. Much as the Nuggets/Avs/Broncos/Rockies can make me want to put my fist through the wall, they ain't got nothin' on the Canucks.

    I'm still a big Ovechkin fan even though I don't like some of the stuff he's said/done off the ice, just a truly amazing player, I like the Caps to a certain extent but despise Tom Wilson with every fiber of my being.

    There's only one team in all of sports I will never, ever root for or even wish well: The Oakland (or Vegas, whatever) Raiders. **** them forever.

    Not gunna lie and I have said it before, but I like the Canucks.

    I sort of like the Flyers because back in the day when all the Cups were won by Detroit, Colorado and New Jersey, the Flyers were a great team with great players and never won one. They also have Gritty.

    I grew up in and currently live in Chicago again. Playing down the street from the United Center as a kid, and the hawks’ owner’s daughter ran some team-building classes for us. Which lead to us watching a few games from the owner’s box...including an Avs-Hawks game.

    Plus they got a lot of my friends into hockey while playing a fun & exciting style during our rebuild...and I got to talk **** about their best player being a rapist or how I remember what the UC was like when I was a kid, any time the locals would get too uppity.

    What’s wrong with the Hawks? They played beautiful high tempo hockey. Easy to enjoy the way they played.

    My favorite team, after the Avs...

    The Minnesota Vikings.

    That's about it.
    Maybe the Colorado Rockies, somewhere after them...

    And here I thought we could be friends :thumbd:

    Okay maybe we can be acquaintances. :huh:
    I think I'll settle on a mild distrust and general snarkiness in your direction. Fair?

    play along

    I actually REALLY liked the Hawks before it was revealed that Patrick Kane was a human ****stain and not just a cocky d-bag. Those Avs/Hawks tilts were must-see hockey back in the day. I still am quite fond of Coach Q even though I still think he singlehandedly cost the Avs a playoff spot that one year. :laugh:
