Which NHL squad is Canada's team?
Tue, April 29, 2008

A recent poll indicates that 40% of Canadians polled consider the Montreal Canadians "Canada's Team".

That's compared to just 24% for the Toronto Maple Leafs, who were considered tops a year ago.

What do you think? Who is really Canada's team? Have your say!

Here is the fact of the matter. Canada's team will be different every year. Every Canadian team has their issues, some more than others. Let's just cheer for the canadian team(s) that make the playoffs, and be proud that we own the game!

Canada's team... Canada should take pride in all their teams. Every team has their downfall and problems, year in and year out. Some have more problems than others, and some haven't won cups in ages. Let's just cheer for the canadian teams that make the playoffs, and be thankful we own the game! as a country.

I'm amazed the Leafs got 24%. Canada's team? What part of Canada? They were a laughingstock in the 70's and have remained so since. Perennial losers.

Canada's team? Let's see:

Calgary - they have Iginla - no team

Edmonton - They weren't even the best team of the 80's - and the 80's are long, long gone

Vancouver - see Calgary comments - insert Luongo for Iginla - loudest CDN fans however

Ottawa - people proudly argue they have won Cups - problem is nobody is still alive to even discuss them

Toronto - probably more Leaf fans/fools across Canada then any other team. Huge population of "fools" however, is nothing to brag about

Montreal - the most storied franchise in hockey but....I haven't read today's news - are they still a part of Canada?

Favorite teams are usually made-up of people's favorite players (ie) probably some team playing in the US.

I would say its the Leafs as they have fans from coast to coast.

Hopefully they will finally hire a GM that will start to rebuild this storied franchise from the ground up and be a true stanley cup contender in the next 5 years.

Bad Year, but the Leafs will always be Canada's Team their fans are not bandwagon or fairweather like the Habs. Thru through thick and thin Fans of the Blue and White know the Leafs are Canada's Team!

The thing is the LEAFS are sad this year, i admit. BUT when you look around the league, there are leafs sweaters in every rink. Hence the Leafs are Canada's team. IMHO.

habs, the best for sure, but, not canada's tem- MONTREAL'S TEAM. GO HABS!
