This was from in a recent poll in SI but i have no clue what people they polled for this... i mean come on how the **** is Nashville the 6th most liked team while Carolina is at #4??? The Coyotes being the most disliked team might have something to do with the Winnipeg Jets fans.

Anaheim belongs in the disliked category for being a bunch of dirty thugs.

If i had to make a list here is what mine would look like:

Dislike:

1. Colorado Avalanche
2. Toronto Maple Leafs
3. St Louis Blues
4. Chicago Blackhawks
5. Philadelphia Flyers

Anaheim Ducks, Nashville Predators, Carolina Hurricanes, Columbus Jackets, Florida Panthers and just about any other non-hockey market team.

Like:

1. Detroit Red Wings


I'm a diehard Wings fan so once my team is out i don't cheer for anyone and don't give a damn who wins the Cup as long as its not the Avs or the Leafs because those two teams are our true rivals even though Bettman has ruined our rivalry with the Leafs by keeping us in the West.

Were you a fan before they moved to Colorado? cause if you were its shocking since most Hab fans i know can't stand them because they were their former bitter rivals the Quebec Nordiques plus the whole Patrick Roy situation.

my list

Dislike
#1 - Toronto Maple Leafs
#2 - New Jersey Devils
#3 - Any team that doesn't derserve to be in the NHL
#4 - NY Rangers (not a big Rangers hater, but they still make the list p)

Like
#1 - NY Islanders
that's all, can't really get into the Western Conference as I rarely see them play. Pittsburgh is a team I respect mainly because one of my friends in college was a huge Pens fan and he took me to a few games

Hate:
1) Rangers- I'm a f$%Kin Islander fan crying out loud. Ranger fans are generally not very bright over-exaggerte everything and are generally front running fans. Oh and they love to talk about how they are great fans because MSG is always sold out. My company has over 100 season tickets and a luxury box. 75% of the fans there are suits.
2) Maple Leafs- Annoying fans, Quinn is a disgrace.
3) Might Ducks- Any team named after a crappy moviedeserves to be on this list.


Love:
Islanders- I generally don't like any other team. Too bad my team sucks it's a hard job being an Islanders fan. I wear that on my sleeve.

My dad is a diehard Habs fan and has been since he came to Canada from Portugal many, many years ago. Growing up I never had a favourite team but a favourite player and that was Patrick Roy. I "liked" the Canadiens but I wasn't really bothered whether they won or lost, just how Saint Patrick did. When Quebec moved to Colorado and Lacrois got Roy and Keane from Montreal, I became a full-out Avs fan.

Hate:

1) Toronto: Most overrated, overhyped, and overexposed team in the league; The England of NHL hockey.

2)Buffalo: Mainly because of Andrew Peters, attacking a goalie, what cvnt!

3)Anaheim: Dirtiest team in the league without doubt

4) I don't really hate Montreal yet, but that Komisarek dude is starting to piss me off

I hate;

Philly- Some of their fans are dirtbags. Traditionally the dirtiest team in the league. Oh and the main reaosn, FVCK BOBBY CLARKE!

Toronto- Never play nice hockey. Fans are full of themselves.

New Jersey- Hate their style of play.

Mighty Ducks- Dirty team and i can't stand that asshole Pronger.


Besides the Red Wings who I've supported since I was like 7 years old, I like...

Montreal- Classy team that plays good hockey.

Ottawa- Their style of play.

He either forgot or he doesn't care anymore since they have been irrelevant ever since Patrick Wah retired or should i say since you got dropped by us 7-0 in game 7 of the Western Conference final.

The Avs will finish ahead of the Red Wings this year.

Let's remember I said this.

I don't care about that (hell we have finished in 1st for the past few years and it has not really mattered come playoff time) all i care about is winning the Cup and beating you like we normally do. I just loved it in 2002 when Forsberg scored that OT winner in game 5 and guys like Melrose kept saying the series was over, then we go to game 6 the "statue of liberty" play and the rest is history...


Speaking of rivalries i love it when i meet Avs fans and they tell me Red Wings suck lol all i do is put up my 10 fingers and ask them how many Cups they have? are they an original 6 team? did they have Mr Hockey play for them? also i have been to Toronto many teams and i always make sure to wear my Wings gear just to see the look on the Leaf fans faces and hear them tell me how much better the Leafs are... and all i have to do is smile and say 1967.

Melrose is always against the Wings as are most of the pundits. They think we're soft. What a load of crockshit. People like Melrose just don't get it, we Wings fans expect skillfull hockey, puck control etc. And of course, given the fact that we're pretty much the classiest organization in sports we don't demand that our team goes out and tries to win by intimidation.

About the Wings-Avs rivalry, it's died out pretty much completely. Basically because it was an 'artificial' rivalry with no history up to the Leamiux incident.

And I'm sure Ambis would agree with me on this. Even though us Wings fans used to despise the Avs, we can appreciate the Avs for playing great hockey and putting the NHL on their backs with our help.

The hockey that the Wings and Avs played during the rivalry was the best hockey I have ever seen. For me it was a great time to be a hockey fan....now we're in the dark ages unfortunatley.

The only thing i appreciate about the Avalanche is Joe Sakic and maybe Peter Forsberg but only if he joins us this year so i can forgive him for all the time he killed us and skated around Larry Murphy like Murph was his bitch. p But i agree with you 100% about the "artificial rivalry" because if not for that Claude Lemieux hit on Draper i don't think the rivalry would have ever been as big (maybe at the same level as Dallas and St Louis) as it once was. Infect i remember back in the 90's our biggest rival was the Chicago Blackhawks and when they had guys like Belfour, Amonte and Chelios on their team i absolutely hated their guts but now they suck so bad that i feel sorry for them more then anything. If you talk to some of the old Wings fans they can tell you how big the Wings-Leafs rivalry used to be and how back in the days there used to be brawls in the bars across the border in Windsor about which team was better. Sadly Bettman with his expansion BS has ruined that rivalry for us and we are stuck trying to make "artificial rivalries" with teams like Nashville and Columbus.
