So with no team in the post-season, what do I do now? What do you folks do, when your team is no longer in the playoffs? I know Leaf fans talk about how next year is going to be different and the media in Canada supports that by endlessly looking at how the Leafs can sign UFA's which are long past their prime or are often damaged goods (see Lindros, Allison or Versteeg).
What I have done in the past is just picked another team to ride while the playoffs are on. In addition to being a Devils fan, there are a few other teams that I do like to watch and wish them luck if the Devils are out of contention.
The list looks something like this:
2. Blackhawks (Liked since '90, Belfour was the reason and I worshiped him until he went a little crazy in Dallas)
3. Kings (Since the '08 World Hockey Championship I have huge respect for Kopitar)
4. Oilers (They are fun to watch and I remember being a kid in awe of their fire power)
After the list is exhausted I usually find some team to support but it isn't ever the same.
So I ask, what do you do when your team is out?
