    LOL....This WAS a Canadians game. I bet most of you Canadians forget what the stanley cup looks like. Its been everywhere from Florida to Texas to California to NJ to Denver to Detroit among other stops. NEVER in Canada!

    Its over guys, you have 1 ok NHL team with the Canucks. Does Toronto even have an NHL team anymore? The Habs are going to be more like an AHL/minor league team for the next 5 years. Lets not forget those Oilers! Senators? LOL

    The league used to be 95% canadians, now its Euros, Americans and Canadians.
    Just like the Canadiens won 24 cups, stop living in the past.

    Oh Yes I forgot the great Jean Ratelle and Brad Park!
    So what if they don't move back, America is a beautiful Country, I would stay
    in Boston.
    The point is it is Canadian players win the cup they just happen to play for American teams.
    I can't wait for 2010 in Vancouver.

    For the record I love the Bruins

    Crosby has one hand on the Cup

    For the love of god, can someone put this post string out of its misery?  Who cares whether players are Canadian - or that they're coming more and more from other countries - which happens to be true, by the way.  

    I mean - what's next?  People boasting about how the US dominates every other sport - leaving aside that puss-of-a-sport Soccer?  Do you see how dumb this sounds, Canadianfan??

    Yes , many great hockey players come from Canada.

    But , the best hockey player ever, according to those who saw him play...was a Russian.

    Valeri Kharlamov.

    Re: All the Great Bruins are born in Canada

    The US is actually very good at soccer, probably better than most sports, we are just ignorant about the game. Expecially, seeing about every country plays soccer and they were ranked as high as #5 recently. If youa re an athlete and ever go to a game in another country, you would see why it is the greatest sport in the world. I argue that hockey is, but  its a tough argument in this country and most other countries..

    We are bad andlosing ground quickly at baseball, see the last 2 wbc  and all the foreign stars(japan,dr,cuba..etc are all better at our sport). Other than the last olympics, we have been awful at basketball (we do think we are better though and usually blame failure on the lack of teamwork! LOL). American football, good lord, we are the only ones that play and watch this timeout/commercial riddled boring mess that makes couch potatoes feel like intellectual strategists. We are usually top 5 in hockey. The Swedes, Czechs, Russians and Canadians usually better.

    The U.S. women are a different story. They excel at most sports.

    Sorry, I am just bored tonight watching the pens beat down again.

    YES - all the greatest Boston Bruins were born in Canada.

    Whether it be Bruins in the Hockey Hall of Fame or Bruins honoured by the team with retired jerseys or both.

    Hockey fans in Canada are PARANOID....it's hysterical.

    To be honest I think Canada STILL is the best hockey country as far as depth of talent.

    However, the most talented players in today's game are European.  Just look at the rosters, leading scoreres, league award winners.....Euro's are captains of teams more and more too....

    Awww.....poor Don Cherry...

    I think it's great to be patriotic and support your countrymen but get a clue and be honest with yourself....

    BTW....note to Canada.....stop bitching and whining about adding a team in either Hamilton or Winnipeg.....those places are NOT major league cities in today's economy

    Re: All the Great Bruins are born in Canada

    Ogie is right.

    Canada is no place for the NHL.

    Places like Phoenix, Atlanta and Florida are the REAL hockey hot spots.  And they've got the empty seats and financial losses to prove it.

    Stick to baseball Ogie.  Get yourself a hot dog and a warm beer and soak it all in.

    I didn't say Canada is no place for the NHL....but there are only so many markets that can support NHL hockey there...but hockey FAILED in Winnipeg and the Copps Coliseeum is a DUMP.

    Or I guess the NHL should have teams in Saskatoon, Yellow Knife, Sudbury, and Red Deer....

    The fact is Canada does not even have a major league sport of any kind inside the country unless you consider the CFL a major league....

    Your wrong Ogie, Hamilton would sell out like toronto. They proved that when they had there last offer in place. They pre-sold every seat in the house for the year, but the effect it would have on buffalo was the stopper. Do you even know where Hamilton is ? It's a stone throw from toronto, the most populated area in canada.

    Re: All the Great Bruins are born in Canada

    Between Southern Ontario (Niagara to Toronto) and South Western Ontario (where Research and Motion is) could easily support an NHL team. It is the most densely populated area in Canada.  That includes people and large businesses and Fortune 500 head offices. And in winning and losing seasons, they would outdraw even the Bruins, who drew maybe 13000 during the losing years at Banknorth?

    But it does not surprise me that some Americans shoot down the idea without even having a clue about the demographics of Ontario. Most could not even find Toronto on a map. Copps Col can be easily retrofitted with more seats and will do just fine before a newer rink was built.

    Maybe the won't get a team because of NHL politics, but they could very easily support one.  There is not debating that fact.

    Hockey failed in Canada in the days before the salary cap, as well as a time period when the exchange rate was extremely tilted in favour of the US teams (.60 US = 1 CAN, unlike now, when it's much closer).

    Saying "Hockey failed in Winnipeg once" statement is silly. So what? At a little over 15K capacity it's not at the present time, but if the MTS Centre were an NHL-sized arena, a new Winnipeg franchise could be much more viable now than they were when they left.

    Saying a team in Hamilton couldn't work because "Hamilton is in Canada and Canadian teams failed in the past" is way off. If an NHL-playable rink were there, a franchise in Hamilton would work in today's NHL.
