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.

Go Ottawa! The poll also implies that 73 percent of respondents have keen hockey sense. Spezza for Prime Minister.

Cheer for Ottawa? Has hell frozen over?

Toronto Maple Leafs all the way! - but in the playoffs - Go Ducks!

Could'nt vote for any'thing' that starts with Ottawa. What the h***,

We've got more in common with Anaheim down the coast than Ottawa.

Go Ducks!

Even though they have been gone for 10 years I will always bleed green. The Hartford Whalers were and always will be my team. From Gordie Howe, Dave Keon and Bobby Hull to Geoff Sanderson, Andrew Cassels and J.S.Giguere, the boys in green were always money in my books.

Team Canada is Canada's team. Everything else is just about individual or regional preference. I cheer for the Leafs when they're playing well but they are no more Canada's team than the Sens, Habs, Canucks, Flames or Oilers. They're just Canadian based teams.

The Maple Leafs Forever!

I've been a Stars fan since I can remember. Everyone in my family cheered on the Oilers and although I liked Ranford, Messier and Gretz (and co.), I decided that I didn't have to cheer them on just because everyone else did. So Minnesota became my team. Then they moved to Dallas and I'm still cheering them on.

I am not a fan of the sad sack senators and I am praying the Ducks take the cup away from them. Ottawa sucks, both as a hockey team and a city.

I've been a Vancouver Canucks fan for as long as they've been in the NHL, but I love to watch any team that plays the way the Sens have played in this playoff. In their heyday the Montreal Canadiens played that style of hockey, and they were fun to watch, even if it was my beloved Canucks they were running over. Great hockey is great hockey no matter what uniform the players are wearing, and right now, the Sens are playing fabulous hockey. They deserve to win.
