In a hurry...

Astana : I like Nibali, but I still cant picture him in the new color, so I go for Maxim Iglinskiy or Bozic for now.
BMC : Teejay
Cannondale : not sure
Sky : Siutsou, Eisel, also Kiryienka, JTL, and Dombrowski, just realize this team will have a lot of riders I care for, and I hope they'll ride elsewhere again someday soon
Lampre : not sure
OPQS : not sure
Saxo : Alberto. And I hope Kump do well with them.
FDJ : Pinot
AG2R : Pozzovivo, glad he goes WT (easier to watch the race)
Orica : not sure
Movistar : hardest to chose, I like everyone I can remember, Alejandro, Plaza, Rojas, Benat, Nairo, Amador, Samoilau, Castroviejo, Madrazo everyone...
Vacansoleil : maybe De Gendt
Europcar : can't think
Euskaltel : I like all the old boys who stay, I miss Amets etc., and I think I can like the new boys, too
Lotto : JvdB for all his flaws
Radioshack : Haimar, one of the first riders I could root for
Argos : Degenkolb of course, but some young names are quite exciting (can't say the team is exciting when actually racing, though)
former Rabo : sometimes Luis Leon
Garmin : can't think

I'm posting without really checking the roosters, so there must be some riders I forget or in the wrong team

but of course JRod at Katusha

Bolded the ones that I really like, and if I had to pick one rider it would be Ian Stannard - the man's a beast.

Now I'm just waiting for the thread on which riders on each team we dislike/hate.
Keep on Truckin'
