Blue Jackets narrowly beat ‘Absolutely the f*** not’ in poll of Flyers’ fans playoff bandwagons

Miss you, Bob.

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Columbus Blue Jackets Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

We ran a poll on the site yesterday listing all of the playoff bandwagon options for Flyers fans in these 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and over 1,000 of you responded. Thanks for that! Very nice of you to do so.

We, of course, left the Washington Capitals, New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins out of the poll because we are not godless. We filled those spots with “lol no”, “not a damn chance” and “absolutely the f*** not”, respectively.

So, who are we rooting for? Oddly enough, it’s a divisional team that came out ahead, with the Columbus Blue Jackets grabbing 15 percent of the vote. I guess we feel bad for all their misery over the years, or maybe we’re just rooting for them to beat Pittsburgh. Or maybe we really miss Sergei Bobrovsky and Scott Hartnell.

‘Absolutely the f*** not’ came in second, with 12 percent of the vote. The San Jose Sharks took the top spot among Western Conference teams with 10 percent of the overall vote, and the Toronto Maple Leafs and Minnesota Wild were close behind.

Full results!
