With the Blackhawks bowing out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs in the first round for the first time since 2012, we have a much longer offseason to fill with content and fun than normal. One of the ways we have decided to that is to do this 30 day "challenge" in which we will present a topic for you, the SCH commenters and community, to answer. Every day for 30 days we will have a new topic to discuss in the comments.
Please remember that not everyone's opinions are the same. We ask that you do not mock others for their opinions that are different than yours. Everyone's varying opinions are good to help create discussion, and we can come to know each other a little better through this exercise.
Stick tap to Cageside Seats, SBN's Pro Wrestling blog, for the idea.
Day 18: Your favorite NHL team besides the Blackhawks?
Adam: This is a bit of difficult question for me to answer because, to be quite frank, I have a much larger list of NHL teams that I dislike. I don't really like any teams other than the Hawks, not out of spite or anything, but just because I don't get to watch other teams that much to form a good opinion. However, the team that I enjoy most besides the Hawks is the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs were frustrating to watch this past season, but with players like Carey Price, P.K. Subban, Max Pacioretti, and Brendan Gallagher, they have a lot of talent that is fun to watch.
Brandon: Ottawa Senators. The team moved to St. Louis due to financial reasons in 1934, and suspended its operations after just one season. The city of Ottawa didn't receive an NHL team again until 1992. It's a sad story not only because the franchise fell apart, but because players had to uproot their lives in Ottawa to move to St. Louis. They also have a sweet logo.
