With the Pens Out Of It...

Postby Mad City Mike on Mon Feb 06, 2006 1:32 pm

Who are you rooting for in each conference?

Myself, I like Buffalo in the East and Nashville in the West. Both are examples of teams that the Pens hould emulate. They are young. They are fast. They play as teams, with few individual stars. I would love to see the finals be between these two teams.

Well, I had Nashville vs Pittsburgh for the Cup so I'm not changing my Western Conference team but I'd like to see Buffalo win the East.

Go Preds!

Peter, you're showing your true form more and more each day.

Picking teams by their uniforms?

I like watching Ottawa and Detroit. Never a dull moment with those teams.

Probably because of that colorless Amish childhood that draws him like a buglight to the flashy uniforms.

Okay, not NHL but we're heading for the Kelly Cup. And I have tickets to all the games home & away.

As far as NHL...the Caps 'cuz I can't get enough of Ovechkin & the Rangers 'cuz they're old time Penguins. My favorite player outside of the Pens is Petr Prucha. :(

Even though they continue to beat the crap out of us, I've always liked Ottawa and hope the new GM molds the Pens in exactly that fashion. Ottawa all the way!!!

I will be puling for Ottawa, as I have been for a few years now once the Pens have been eliminated. I love the way they built there team from the draft, plus key acquisitions here & there which put then in contention for the cup every year. Look at who they have drafted over the last 10 years:

Chris Phillips, Alfredsson, Fisher, Spezza, Hossa, Eaves, Havlat, etc

Then the acquisitions - Chara, Heatley, Varada, etc.

I believe they have a formula the Pens can follow as well, starting with Fleury, Crosby, Whitney, Orpik, Malkin, and maybe Kessel.

As for the west, I've always been an Oilers fan since the greatest team ever assembled (84-85 Oilers) won the cup.

I'm rooting for no one. I'd like to see Oilers doing well though - for no particular reason
