Every now and then I see people talking about other teams they like in the NHL [see: recent threads] and I was curious to find out: If the Colorado Avalanche franchise was shut down permanently, which team would you support?
(A) Let's assume they are only defunct, and not relocated.
(B) You have to choose ONE team.
Be realistic about this, because after you vote comment on who you voted for, and the reasons why you voted for them. It will be interesting to see if any one team stands out from the rest, or if geography controls the poll. Let's get as many people as possible, lurkers and all.
