Who is your mistress team?

Postby Cagsjr724 on Mon Jan 21, 2013 12:30 am

Oilers for me. I'm a huge Taylor Hall fan and I like the direction this team is heading. Reminds me of the Pens the first two years we had Crosby. Young team that will be a force if they get the right pieces.

Probably going to have to be the Blue Jackets, though I prefer to cheer for players rather than teams (not counting the Pens).

I'm going to say the Oilers. I like all the good young offensive talent they have added through the draft that can make the Oilers a fun team to watch. I want to see if Justin Schultz can live up to the hype and I want to see is Devan Dubnyk is the answer in goal. All of these factors make Edmonton my mistress team.

I hate all Eastern Conference teams with a passion besides the Pens... I kinda like the Ducks though, mostly because of Selanne. And the last couple years I did enjoy watching a lot of Red Wings games, I kinda learned to not hate them and respect them because of the way they play the game... Not sure if that will still be the case since they're not looking too hot without Lidstrom.

The champs



I get that people don't want an Eastern Conference team based on rivalries but mine is more that you get to see them in the late games a lot (especially when the Pens win I want to watch more hockey) and I've grown to like them over the past few years.

Also, went to a game there last year and had a great time.

I started out as a Flames fan when I was a kid, because they won the first cup finals I remember. Indifferent about them now.

Flames. I LOVE Iginla. Pulled for them pretty hard in the cup final against the Lightning. Would have loved to have seen them win the game 6 up in Calgary to hoist the cup.

Hurricanes, I guess. I wish I had more time to follow a Western Conference team, but I find it tough staying awake for Penguins games. :lol:

It's complicated.

My regular boy toy:
Buffalo

Love but don't "love-love" them:
Edmonton - I absolutely love their young players but cannot get attached to the team itself

Friend with obvious benefits:
Whoever's playing the Flyers

Quickies with no strings attached:
Whoever's playing the Capitals

Estranged:
Nashville - since Suter left, I'm not sure where we stand. Liked Vokoun with them and I kept track of Paul Kariya anywhere he went.

Find incredibly attractive in part because they're unavailable:
St. Louis - Early history with the Pens, Brett Hull...ugh

The one that got away:
Kings - Loved them for a long time, but Carter and Richards...ehhh :? . But I wish the Kings the best and rooted for them to win the Cup.

Unrequited love: One guy 4-eva and eva
Teemu Selanne - I adore him...always have, always will

OMG, I've been busy... :oops:

That was my mistake. My mind puts them together all the time as a pair. I meant Suter! LOL! I've separated them now.

Minnesota Wild.... after I moved here I really didn't care much, but my wife's dad is a big wild fan and I got him cheering for the Pens also, so I have come around and started following them too.

Mine kinda changes from year to year depending on roster moves typically, last year I watched alot of Kings games and this year I'm really feelin the Blues. Typically after the Pens are done I look for what I consider to be the best West Coast 'matchup/rivalry' type game and watch till I go to sleep.
