I want to see what team is considered to be a good guy team or bad guy team the most often, so here is the exercise...

Take the following list and divide the teams on the list into one of TWO categories - Good Guys or Bad Guys.
No neutral or third categories accepted, you have to make a choice on each. Each list does not have to be even, you could have 25 good guys and 7 bad guys if you want or make them even. I've put a full list you can copy/paste and move around.

Anaheim Ducks
Arizona Coyotes
Boston Bruins
Buffalo Sabres
Calgary Flames
Carolina Hurricanes
Chicago Blackhawks
Colorado Avalanche
Columbus Blue Jackets
Dallas Stars
Detroit Red Wings
Edmonton Oilers
Florida Panthers
Los Angeles Kings
Minnesota Wild
Montreal Canadiens
Nashville Predators
New Jersey Devils
New York Islanders
New York Rangers
Ottawa Senators
Philadelphia Flyers
Pittsburgh Penguins
San Jose Sharks
Seattle Kraken
St. Louis Blues
Tampa Bay Lightning
Toronto Maple Leafs
Vancouver Canucks
Vegas Golden Knights
Washington Capitals
Winnipeg Jets


When people are done, I'll tabulate everyone's results and we'll have a SportsHoopla Good Guy Index for every NHL team and rank them. :)

Mine came out pretty even, kinda surprised and was interesting to see my gut reaction in a few cases. Like I don't dislike Toronto, but because I really like Montreal, I felt compelled to put them on the other side.

As I have said before, if the Caps ever made Tom Wilson available, there would be 31 teams vying for his services. He's probably the 4th most important player on that team after OV, Backstrom, and Carlson. He just needs to rein in the dirty hits is all.

They’re all bad in my book. But I cheer for the zebras.

If I had to chose a good team, I’d go with whatever team Corey Perry plays for.

I find this fascinating so far. Very curious to see the overall results and account for things like Cup wins and other factors that influence the results.

Clearly there are social factors in play here. For example, we have many a well-liked Vancouver fan on here and I expect that our good impressions of the those Canuck fans will lead us to see the team they cheer for as good guys. Although you could say the same for Pens - many liked fans on here, and yet the opposite impression. So clearly the Cup wins (seeing the Canucks as the downtrodden and the Pens as the privileged likely is a factor).

I might do a whole data viz thing on this if we get lots of results. Keep 'em coming...

Canucks are doing something right (or maybe wrong) as they would have been on everyone's bad guy list back in the Burrows / Kesler years.

Basically, if your team doesn't have a shitstain on its roster I don't find any issue with them. May have missed a few shitstains I suppose.

It was hard to swallow putting the Habs on the good list. They almost made the bad list with the Leafs, but honestly I am rooting for ANY Canadian team to win the Cup.
