It has been a long time since a Canadian team hoisted the Cup. The Montreal Canadians last did it in 1993. There has been some discussion as to whether Vancouver is Canadia’s team.
Do you think it is?
The Globe and Mail says it is the duty of all patriotic Canadians to cheer the Canucks on. Are you a patriotic Canadian? Do you believe it is your duty to cheer the Canucks on?
When I first started to follow professional hockey many years ago, there were only six teams in sight – two of them in Montreal. Not an American team in sight. Now most of the teams are American interlopers and the boss of the NHL is a hard-boiled American legal gun named Bettman who is paid millions to run what was once a Canadian league.
Bettman moved the NHL offices to New York where he spends most of his time.
Considering how little of the Canadian element in hockey still survives, should we all be cheering on the Vancouver ‘ Canucks’.
What do you think?
