Lol, yes, yes we do! we were close last year, but i'm glad Ottawa didn't win. they have too big of a riverly between Toronto. And Montreal can't win it for the same reasons. So it's up to Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver!

Geez, for the country who is the home of hockey, we're kinda lacking in NHL teams. We were close to getting one in Kitchener/London area...close but no cigar.

You're forgetting that nobody actually lives in Canada. The handful of cities in Canada all have NHL teams already. lol jk. I've got a friend from Canada so I always make fun of him. Yeah you should have more NHL teams. Move a few of the US teams to Canada. I mean, why do cities like Phoenix and Miami have pro hockey teams? Most people there have never even seen ice before. Most of the NHL teams in the States are broke anyway.

Haha, yes that's probabaly true. I think there is a lot of Canadian players who play on U.S. teams, like Sydney Crosby.

Ice is EVERYWHERE here in the winter. Well, not literally, but (almost) EVERYONE goes to the arenas in the winter. (In fact I just got a job at my town's arena today)

But back on topic, anyone else think that Canada needs more NHL teams?

It would be nice, maybe if the dollar stays high we could afford them, especially with the new salary cap. The Winnipeg Jets and Quebec Nordiques were sold to the US because they were losing too much money in Canada. I think it's insane that there has never been an NHL team affiliated with Saskatchewan, since there are arenas all over the place, and huge support for the minor league teams.

Re: The Official NHL Thread

Welcome to the Official NHL Thread! Let's get discussing, shall we?

What is your favourite team?
- Tie between the Toronto Maple Leafs and now the Ottawa Senators!
I've split my bandwagon!!

Who are You Rooting For this season?
- Ottawa and Toronto. Toronto because I want to see them do well and Ottawa because they are such a good, strong, team!
Also, I want the goalies to not be the scapegoat for Toronto.

Who will win the Stanley Cup?
- Ottawa Senators! If they don't win, they will be in the finals. Carolina Hurricanes are looking good again this year.

Who is your favourite player?
- Toronto - any of the young guys who play well.
- Ottawa - Ray Emery because I get a kick out of the guy!

What team needs major recruiting/changes the most?
- Uh, again, Toronto big time. It's sacrilege to say this but Sundin,
Tucker, McCabe, JFJ jr. and the Big Business mentality of the franchise all have to go.
But these are lofty dreams.

What is your favourite position?
- Goalie.

NO! OMG! i am so jealous of you! He grew up only a couple of hours (3, i think) from where i live. i've been to his restaurant in Toronto..it's quite good!

But back on topic; Sundin, Tucker, McCabe are not going anywhere!! not if i can help it! i love them all! i'll hold a one-(wo)man protest outside the ACC (Air Canada Centre) if i have to!!!

Re: The Official NHL Thread

What is your favourite team?
Vancouver Canucks.

Who are you rooting for this season?
The Canucks of course!

Who will win the Stanley Cup?
Obviously I'd like to see the Canucks win it, but Ottawa are looking good at the moment.

Who is your favourite player?
Roberto Luongo. We need him to have another big season.

What team needs major recruiting/changes the most?
At the moment it looks like Atlanta!

What is your favourite position?
Center.

I'm an English Canucks fan. I have followed hockey in this country since 1982 and have followed the Canucks since 1986 when I went across to Vancouver to visit family. I have been lucky enough to go to a Canucks game when I have been on one of my visits to Vancouver and have been on a tour of GM Place, and also the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. They are well worth doing if you've got the time.

Just recently I got to go to the two London Premiere NHL games between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks at the O2 Arena, and was lucky enough to get to touch the Stanley Cup when it was on display at the entrance to the O2 (that's probably just gone and jinxed the Canucks from winning it now! ). They were good games with Los Angeles winning 4-1 on the Saturday and Anaheim also winning 4-1 on the Sunday.

It was a shame that Teemu Selanne, Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Scott Niedermayer weren't playing. Todd Bertuzzi had a good weekend for the Ducks, after his problems in recent years, and Anze Kopitar played really well for the Kings.

Re: The Official NHL (National Hockey League) Thread

What is your favourite team?
-Calgary Flames

Who are You Rooting For this season?
-FLAMES!

Who will win the Stanley Cup?
-If the Flames can get their act together I think we could have a pretty good chance at the cup. But Detroit is always a strong contender.

Who is your favourtie player?
-Active Player: Jarome Iginla
-Retired: Steve Yzerman

What team needs major recruiting/changes the most?
-I think the whole Nashville franchise could use an overhaul. But also the NHL needs to re-evaluate trying to sell hockey to the entire market and first focus on strengthening the existing markets they have. They would do well to establish stronger regional markets in the US.

What is your favourite position?
-Goalie


PS harryismyhero17 you left out the Calgary Flames as a Canadian team! Hopefully we'll make another run similar to 2004...but you know NOT have a game winner disallowed...
