    I liked Edm back in the day, the team that went to the finals was awesome to watch. They lost me during the 4 1 overall picks in a row phase that just pissed me off so I was happy some of them busted and haven't followed em since. I am happy the fans have more to cheer for these days though, that Alberta fan base is awesome.

    I like Tampa because I enjoyed watching Yzerman and what our management could have been if the right move was made at the right time and he stayed here. Coach coop, Tyler Johnson, the Bishop trade, Connolly bust, Stamkos health, Kucherov and Gusev picks, the Drouin and Martin St. Loius sagas. Was always something going on.

    Always liked the Leafs, a lot of cable packages in Detroit included CBC so I got to watch HNIC which was mostly whoever played Toronto. You can even pull CBC on the antenna in certain areas.

    HIFK, used to like following the Devils, thanks to former IFK star Rafalski playing there but ever since he joined Detroit, haven't really been following any other NHL teams that much.

    The other teams I watch have been influenced by those around me.

    Started to follow the Oilers after they retired Yzerman went on that cup run. Also have been following the Leafs since I was a wee lad. In my family you were either a Wings or Leafs fan. Luckily I adopted the right one as my favourite, but my dad is a Leafs fan so I have a soft spot for them.

    Wings are my number 1 by a lot. After them it's Boston, I've got family ties to New England and they're all Broons fans. I love Brad Marchand.

    I don't really root for them, but I will always keep an eye out for the Minnesota scores. I just love how bought in that whole state is when it comes to hockey.

    If you watch the Leafs game tying goal - Dino took a shift off and was just camping the boards at the blue line away from the play. Let the Leafs have a defacto PP for quite some time before they scored.

    Toronto Raptors and Indianapolis Colts. I have no desire to support any other hockey team.

    Way back in the sega genesis days...Canucks with Bure, but they fell out of my favor in the Crawford era...and their recent fanbase doesn’t help.

    I root for Minnesota, Calgary, St Louis; and the AVs a little bit because i have family in Denver. On this side of things I like Nashville, but as soon as the Wings are contenders that will stop.

    I don’t have a number 2 team but I’m partial to original 6 teams and I root for teams on a run that haven’t won yet like the Blues last year. With Babcock/Shanny running things Toronto is who I follow closest post-April.

    For years, I pretty much hated every team but Detroit. But now, I'd consider the Predators my #2 team. Their fans were great when I went to Nashville for our season opener. I would go again in a heartbeat.

    Boston. They have the perfect amount of skill and chemistry that makes every shift exciting to watch. Top line is sick and rooting for Marchand is a lot more fun than rooting against him. Dudes a riot

    Kings. But also developing a soft spot for the Oilers and even the Leafs (I know. I know).

    I think partly because I kinda want to see this place explode of the leafs won the Cup.
