Which team do you want to see fail this year?

As hockey fans, we don’t want to see anything good happen to anyone that isn’t on our team. We hate our rivals and we fear losing to them more than we like beating them.

A thread on reddit asked hockey fans which team would you want to see “fail” in the upcoming season. Fail had various meanings in that context. It could mean missing the playoffs, losing to the rival each time or going 0-82 this season. Whatever your definition of “fail” was, it was clear that there were some hockey fans that wanted to wish ill will on their rivals.

When it comes to Predators fans, there are a few teams that come to mind. The hated Red Wings leave for the East, but are fans still bitter towards Detroit?

As far as new division opponents go, Ryan Suter and the Wild are on the radar and as a new division rival, fans will rain boos down on Shea Weber’s former partner. The Dallas Stars will enter the conference and there already looks like there will be some bad blood between the green and gold. There are other fans that hope to see the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks fall of their pedestal.

So Predators fans, tell us what you think. Which team do you want to see flat out fail in the 2013-14 season?

Which team do you want to see fail this year?
