Who I'm rooting for: Playoffs edition

Just so the air is clear when, come playoffs time, you happen onto this site and find heavy non-Thrasher content, I will not be accused of bandwagoning. Thusly, I present to you my list of teams I personally will be rooting for in playoffs:

  1. Thrashers (hahahahahahahahahahahahhahahaha!!!)
  2. Sabres
  3. Bruins
  4. Penguins
  5. Flyers
  6. Capitals
Normally I'd put a game day preview up here, but I'm starting to care about as much as our players do. Plus! "Moose gets the start in goal as he guns for consecutive wins." After:

Kari Lehtonen made 40 saves, but fell to 0-5-3 with a 4.03 goals-against average in his last eight starts. He has not won since a 3-2 shootout victory over Washington on Feb. 13.

"It's just frustrating," Lehtonen said. "I don't even remember when I won a game last. There's only so much you can take of this. I just need to battle and come back strong next game."


Yeah, that's how I roll. Got a problem with it? Oh good.

I think filling the blogs with non-Thrashers content is really the only option at this point...

Thats why I just signed up for center ice...time to watch some other teams play hockey. I haven't yet formed my playoff rooting list yet though. But I hate the Sabres and Flyers. And we need the Pens to lose ASAP to make our draft pick a better one! I'm shifting my rooting interests out west: Go Sharks, Go Flames?

I officially gave up on the WC when Kevin Lowe traded Gator to the Flyers and made no attempt to re-sign Ryan Smyth. Gator (and my buddy Lupul) are actually the ONLY reasons I'm rooting for the Flyers, otherwise I tend to wish death on Philly teams. Should my bf ever actually start playing for the Oil, then I will consider rooting for them again. But not a second beforehand.

I think the only team I have a modicum of interest in in the West is the Sharks, and only cause they have that awesome Shark Byte show. I know right, awesome reasoning.

Duuuude, that is one depressed goalie. Even Dan Cloutier didn't sound that sad when half of Vancouver thought he killed a dude...

Anyway! Come on, just admit you'll be cheering for the Canucks. I know you want to. My Taylor's eyes are luring you....

Donna we won! It's unreals! He was so happy! This cheers me. Also, you are much with the evil, hm? I will root for Prettay, if not his team. :p
