I want to start getting into hockey. I wonder which team I should follow.
We do this every year, and the Hockey Nerds are here to help. First, you should watch everybody and try and decide who you like. It's like the EPL, a team will choose you.
That said, the last four Cup winners are Boston, Chicago, LA, and Pittsburgh. Have some self-respect and don't be a bandwagon jumper. On the flip side, some teams look downright hopeless right now: Calgary, Buffalo, Florida, and Phoenix. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for a team, or you're in for miles of depression.
Other than that, it's really what you are looking for in a team and of course, where you live. Last year, my standard recommendation for a hockey newbie was the Blues. I still stand by that, but the Stars might be a fun up and comer to latch onto. Get in on the ground floor and all that.
