No doubt. Wings are first, obviously. After that though, the Whale and Nordiques are right up there with my faves.

Speaking of which, at the season closer Wings v Hawks game on Saturday, there were like 900 Nordiques fans there, (the "Nordiques Nation") and a few had a big sign that said "Stanley Cup 2014: Red Wings v Nordiques"


Watching a tiedhockey game late in the 3rd period or in OT, before OTL were awarded, was MUCH worse than the so called íloser pointí. At least teams play to win instead of playing to loose. Why do so many people forget this? Ties suck.

Congrats! Loved the logo, but I always referred to them as the Hartford Failures. One year they were so bad a friend an I wore bags over our heads at a game.

You werenít alone... and it had to sting a little when they won the cup as the Hurricanes.


They picked the right name: When they were in Hartford they BLEW for years.

Who said anything about ties? You win the game in regulation or OT, you get 2 points. You win in a SO you get 1. You lose you get zero. That is how it should be, IMO. Why reward losers with a point?

That just might work and I wouldnít be opposed to that scenario. Most people that Iíve heard talk about this issue just want a return to the old point system.

I hate the fucking whale. Iíve been a Hurricanes season ticket holder since 2002. Itís so annoying when people on sportscenter and even other teams media still make reference to the Canes being the Whalers. Its been almost 16 years now....move on.
