Born and raised in the shadows of Boston. Now live in Springfield, MA.
Been a Bruins fan since I can remember.
I'm old enough to remember when Ray Bourque gave up #7 and started wearing #77 so Esposito could have his number retired.

born and raised in ATL, I've been a Pens fan for almost 30 years. the Flames left when I was still very young. I got into watching hockey in the early 90s, right around the time Jagr came along. Mario, Jagr and Francis were incredible and I was hooked. when the Thrashers came along in the late 90s I became a season ticket holder. unfortunately, the NHL messed up that entire expansion class. none of those teams has won the Stanley Cup in 20 years of being in the league and only the Preds have made it to the final round.
I kept waiting for the Thrashers to give me a reason to overcome the Pens as my #1 team but it never happened. they always played some of the most boring hockey with the most mediocre players (with a few exceptions) I've ever seen.

I grew up in Chicagoland as a Hawks (and Wolves) fan. I spent 2-3 years in DC and rooted for the Caps as the home team, but would obviously root for the Hawks when they were in town. It was easier since they were in a different conference. Having spent over a decade in LA, I go to a lot of Kings games since they're local, but the Hawks are still my team

Lifelong Atlantan, grew up as a Flames season ticket holder. I followed them after they left, then went on my first trip to Vancouver in '94, saw Gretzky play the Canucks at the Pacific Coliseum, and became a Canucks fan mostly because of Pavel Bure and me loving the city in general. Then the Thrashers came to town and I was 100% a fan and season ticket holder throughout their whole tenure, even towards the end when ownership was doing everything they could to intentionally alienate the remaining fanbase to facilitate the team's sale and relocation. Once that was over and done with, my allegiance went back to Vancouver, which was convenient because that was the year of their almost championship.

About 45 minutes from San Francisco, San Jose, and Stockton, 30 from Oakland.
My favorite NHL team is technically the San Jose Sharks, but I can't stand the fanbase. Hockey isn't big here and Bay Area sports fans are the some of the biggest bandwagoners in the country - see Warriors, Giants, 49ers, etc. They don't understand hockey at all and just go to games to get drunk. The quality of the ushers at SAP Center has gone to absolute shit since 2015 and going to games just isn't fun. I'll go if I get free tickets, but that's about it. My interest in the NHL in general is pretty much gone, minus the gear of course.
I've also been into European hockey (SHL, Liiga, KHL) a lot more lately. My favorite teams are Frolunda Indians (SHL) and Jokerit (KHL) because #1: they're both former teams of Erik Karlsson and #2: I love the colors and uniforms. I also love the insane, interactive crowds and it feels like I'm watching a futbol match but with hockey on the ice. My bucket list is to visit Europe and catch as many games as possible.

I grew up in Chicago (in the city proper), and have lived here my entire life. Grew up on the 90's Blackhawks, and started going to Wolves games with my Dad in their first season in 1994. I take my kids to Wolves games now, and try to get to at least two Hawks games a year. I was a season ticket holder living on the Near West Side when they won in 2010. That said, about past 4-5 years I've been kinda bandwagoning on some other teams, mainly because of the crime and political climate in my city. It's painful to watch what's happening here, so it's made it hard to get excited about the sports teams. Plus, after 2010 and 2013 Hawks Stanley Cup teams, I couldn't get attached to the players as much as I did those teams. Guys like Burish, Versteeg. The guys were all young and it was fun. Now it seems more like a grind.

I've grown up in Northern California and Southern California, and still split time between both. I've been a Sharks fan the last 13 years or so, but after all of my favorite sharks left the past few seasons, I just enjoy watching great hockey with no team preference. I think I end up analyzing plays and moves these days more than anything else.
