Favorite TeamsBorn and bred Red Wings fan. I will watch talented players on any team. I like the Leafs and sometimes Montreal - depends on who they are playing. Would like to see a revamped schedule so that Detroit could play these traditional rivals more often - not the contrived rivalry we have been forced into with Columbus. (That rivalry is FOOTBALL - NOT HOCKEY!) And of course, as a loyal alumna, I love the national champ Michigan State Hockey Spartans!
Most Hated TeamsDon't hate any team, per se, as there is talent on all of them. But, there aren't enough Snowbirds to support teams where palm trees grow, Gila monsters thrive,and nobody has a rink in their back yard. If you didn't get a pair of ice skates as a kid then it is a sure bet you live where folks don't care about hockey. Let's end this painful,failing expansion experiment so that the rest of the teams don't have to continue to subsidize it.
Best Hockey MemoriesWhile I don't remember it, I must have watched a Stanley Cup finals on the old black and white in the 50s and seen octopi thrown on the ice at Olympia. I obviously knew it was a good thing because at age 5, I actually asked for a toy octopus for Christmas. I not only got it - I still have it.
