Who's really 'Canada's team'?
Thu, May 24, 2007

OTTAWA (CP) - With Ottawa as the lone Canadian team in the Stanley Cup finals, it seems more and more people see the Senators as "Canada's team."

A new poll suggests most Canadians still see the Toronto Maple Leafs as the hockey team that most represents the country. Among the nearly one-quarter of Canadians who, when asked, said they are avid hockey fans, 27 per cent picked the Leafs as Canada's team in a Decima poll conducted last weekend.

"Ottawa is Canada's team bar none! If only other teams like Edmonton could learn from them."

Learn what? How to be losers and a team no one else cares about? No thanks.

Many of the comments are amusing, even those from the usual "so-and-so sucks" and (name your team) rules" and "GO (whoever) GO" types who clearly have problems stringing together a legible sentence. But at least now I know why fans in Toronto have been filling the ACC all these years. It's a graphic demonstration of the old adage "misery loves company."

Cheer for The Sens? Not a chance. I think it is silly that just because the team is located in Canada I, as a Canadian, should be expected to cheer for them. This is The NHL not the Olympics and will have no problem cheering on the many Canadians playing for The Anaheim Ducks. Go Ducks Go!

I am a Flyers fan, ever since the Leafs traded Darryl Sittler to Philly, they have been my team. The only reason I watch the Leafs is because they are on tv so much and I watch to see the visiting team kick the Leaf's butts.

Any Canadian team that makes it to the stanley cup finals you have to root for, its about time the cup comes back home where it rightly should be because its been a long time since a Canadian team has won it.

GO SENS GO!!!!!

Go Vancouver!

I live in T.O. but I think we should support all Canadian teams who can win the cup. I am looking forward for the first SENS home game playing the Leafs next season and the SENS is hanging up the Stanley cup banner! That moment is priceless. GO SENS GO!

My mom was right all the time about the Sens. The pyre from my Leaf jerseys will be seen from Calgary in Ottawa. Go Senators!
Wallace K. MacNaughton, 2007-05-24 17:55:28

Too right! Having watched the stunning offensive and defensive display in this years playoffs by the Sens it has encouraged me to cheer for the Senators and give up on the 40 year cursed Leafs.
Dr. J. L. Wallace, 2007-05-24 17:52:42

I left Toronto because of all of the Leaf dementia/hype. I think there is something in the water...Go Ottawa.
