Background:

From Atlanta and was planning on watching/attending more NHL in the upcoming season after watching a good bit toward the end of this season. Well, that ship has sailed obviously because I don't have a f*cking team any more so who am I supposed to root for? Literally?

I guess Nashville is the closest to me now. I dont even know if I'll get the games here though so that kinda sucks. Or I could be a Hurricanes fan which is probably a little further than Nashville but maybe in my region still.

No DH. Serious thread. Who would you migrate to, Predators or Canes?

Canes. Very bright future.

Yes my homer goggles are on.

Well the Preds are a better team than the Canes if thats what you want. The Canes do have one of the best rookies in the league though, along with one of the best forwards.

Which team is more exciting?

Basically which team has a Mike Vick type player that will captivate my attention.

Canes. Preds play a boring, defensive game.

I think you'd better stick with the Thrashers here in Winnipeg dude. We'd love to keep you on board.

Canes.

Preds have the best D combo in Weber/Suter but are kind of boring offensively.

Canes have Staal and a future star in Skinner. (63 points as an 18 year old rookie C this season)

Canes. solid team. close to Duke. Eric Staal is one of the best, Jeff Skinner was one of the top goal scorers as an 18 year old.

If you want a Mike Vick type player, there are only a few guys that are as electric as he is. Basically Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin, Stamkos. I will gladly welcome you as a Penguin fan.

funny you mention this, on a big hockey website, all the Trasher fans had a 'draft' where they were assigned to new teams to root for.

Uhhmm.. Let's no forgot the wizard known as sir Pavel Datysuk.. No one more electric than the best dangler in the game. Sure he doesn't score as often as some of those guys you mentioned but he'd skate circles around all of them and pull some wizardy teleportation shiz

I like the Canes.. Cam Ward is great in net and Skinner and Staal are a great 1-2
