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!
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.

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.
