Which NHL Team is Most Likely to Follow You?

We've looked at who has the most followers and who's tweeting the most, but which team is most likely to give you a follow back? I ask that a bit tongue in cheek, because in all honesty unless you are a player, former player, in the system, a celebrity or part of the media, most teams are really not interested in following you. They'll see your @ mentions and may even give you a retweet or a favorite but following hundreds of thousands of fans would require an army of minions.

This is a pretty simple look at the list strictly by the numbers. In another post we'll look at them from a ratio of followers to following, which will adjust this list somewhat I'm sure. Consider the Blackhawks for instance, even though they are following 1863 accounts they lead the league with over a million followers so there is quite a significant difference.

Please don't hate on your team for what might be considered anti-social networking, for them this is another means of informing fans about what's going on in the organization and I think most of us realize that.
