Which NHL team is Canada's best hope at winning a Cup? Wed, December 1, 2010
Canadian hockey fans are apparently able to separate the heart and the brain.
Almost half of those polled by by Leger Marketing for QMI Agency said the Montreal Canadiens, who are off to a fantastic start, are the Canadian NHL team with the best chance of winning the Stanley Cup this season.
In a poll of 1,508 Canadian adults Nov. 22, using Leger’s on-line panel, 46% of adults 18 and older said they believe the Canadiens are this country’s best hope to win the Cup.
As you might expect, Quebeckers led the way with 77% believing the Canadiens, who went on a surprising run to the Eastern Conference final last spring, are the team with the best shot at bringing Lord Stanley’s mug back to Canada. The last time one of the six Canadian teams hoisted the Cup was in 1993, when the Habs won.
