Maybe we should take all the Canadian players and make all Canadian teams. Then we could see just how good those American teams would be. My guess. They wouldn't stand a chance.
They did pretty damn good in the olympics, and went 1-1 i believe....

By that time, you would realize how stupid your fact of the day is.
They got 1 lucky goal by Crosby in OT.

Canada has not won a Stanley Cup since 1993.

I wanted to see the Canucks lose too. Not only are they a rival of the Sharks, but I don't like their sniveling coach. He was complaining throughout the WCF about the officiating...even though it was his team that was getting most of the key power play time..

However, you can't frame this series as a US versus Canada thing. Not with so many Canadian players on both sides. Heck, the Bruins Milan Lucic was born in East Vancouver. And Mark Recchi is from Kamloops BC..

Come on now Meson...then it would be become Michigan vs Massachusetts...LOL

I wonder if TX realizes the players generally only represent the city and aren't actually from the city itself???

Good lord...
