    Pick CW's Hockey Team!

    Well, he consented in the mailbag to let us pick a hockey team for him to follow.... as well as told me to "Do the math".... interesting

    As an Avalanche fan, I have the following reasons for Chris to be an Avs fan.

    1. Solid ownership that wants to win (2 Stanley Cups in the last 15 years)
    2. Promising young players
    3. Good enough to have a shot at a Stanley Cup, but not good enough to be counted as a bandwagon fan. (Pittsburgh, Chicago, Detroit all fit under bandwagon category at this point)

    Colorado's profile over the last 15 years is much like the Braves. Dominant from the late 90s to the mid 2000s, but not many championships, rebuilding now with drafted talent (Matt Duchene: Jason Heyward)

    Discuss.

    I think it would be a lot funnier to make him a fan of the Minnesota North Stars or the Hartford Whalers and make him bitter that they're no longer around.

    Re: Pick CW's Hockey Team!

    Vote #2 for the Avalanche. They haven't been quite the same since they had Forsberg, Roy, Foote, Deadmarsh, Drury, Claude Lemieux, and Sakic at the same time. I used to love to watch them go to war with the Red Wings. Those games were absolute blood baths. I will never forget the aftermath from Claude blindsiding Draper into the bench boards and breaking his jaw. That rivalry really got amped up after that hit.

    1. San Jose Sharks- My mom bought me a sharks jacket in 6th grade because she liked the colors.

    2. Mighty Ducks because ducks fly together

    How about the Winnipeg Jets then? The only thing more embarrassing then losing your NHL franchise is being in CANADA and losing your NHL franchise. Ouch.

    Probably one of the worst logos in sports history. The simple design of it makes Atari graphics look awesome.

    Another reason he needs to be an Avs fan, since they moved from Quebec City.

    I miss that... sadly, I can blame the salary cap for putting an end to the Wings-Avs battles.. and who can forget goalie fights? those are the best things in sports.

    Wild or Blackhawks.

    I was a Blackhawks fan as a kid, because they were the closest team, but then became a Wild fan when the franchise started up, as they were the closest team. I still root for the Blackhawks, but Wild first.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I vote NY Rangers.....one of the original 6, first United States franchise to win the Stanley Cup, 4 SC Titles('27-'28, '32-'33, '39-'40, and most recently '93-'94). Of course lately, big expectations and huge letdowns have become the norm.
