1. Pittsburgh Penguins-This seems very self explanatory to anyone who has followed this blog
2. Chicago Blackhawks-2007 NHL Entry Draft (Flyers finished as the worst team in the league, yet Chicago who was the 5th seed, somehow won the lottery. Who was picked 1st overall? Patrick Kane. Who beat Philadelphia in the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals? Who scored the game winning goal in Game 6? Of course he did.
3. Toronto Maple Leafs-This is a good one. Growing up in the area, I was actually a young leaf fan. That seems very hard to believe, but its true. Well, as soon as I realized the difference between day and night, I switched.
4. LA Kings-Nothing against the Kings, they have a really good team. But I could not stand to listen to people who constantly think that Philadelphia handed LA the cup. They traded 1 player, Mike Richards to LA; not Jeff Carter. I could care less what Columbus did with him after the trade. I still think they won both of those trades and would make both trades 10/10 times.
5. NYR Rangers-Divisonal Rival. Beat Philadelphia in 7 games this year. Not much love.
And wouldnt you know, the 3 teams left in the playoffs are all on my list. Montreal was my last hope.
